Holy crap this guy knows his stuff. Join me for a trip down the functional medicine rabbit hole with Dr. Mitchell Rasmussen, and hear some answers that I’m pretty certain you probably won’t be expecting.
Of course I asked him about leaky gut, lab tests, and sleep issues, but we talked about a whole bunch of other cool stuff, like creating your dream job, empowering your patients, and the importance of expressing gratitude.
You’re not gonna want to miss this one. And yes, I am most certainly bringing him back on the show for more.As always, time stamps in the show notes have all the goodies (live links and everything!). Rate it, review it, hit me up and let me know what you wanna hear. Thank you, thank you, thank you for choosing to spend your time with me. You guys are the best.
