Reporter: HAD TO LOSE.COM TO GET GIFTS. WE ARE AT FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE IN JOHNSON CITY. WE ARE JOINED BY THE OWNER, MEDICAL DIRECTOR, JOSEPH. I APPRECIATE YOU COMING OUT.>>REALLY INTERESTING TO HEAR THE STORY AND WHAT YOU OFFER AND GET EVERYBODY ON THE RIGHT TRACK TO GOOD HEALTH. LET’S START WITH THE BACKGROUND OF HOW IT GOT STARTED. ABSOLUTELY. I HAVE BEEN ON A QUEST FOR 15 YEARS. I FINISHED MEDICAL SCHOOL, DID A RESIDENCY IN FAMILY MEDICINE GOT BOARD-CERTIFIED. I FELT LIKE I COULD MAKE A BIG DIFFERENCE. I MOVED MY FAMILY FROM ARKANSAS BACK TO TENNESSEE. I SPENT A DECADE IN EMERGENCY MEDICINE. I WORKED WITH GREAT PHYSICIANS, NURSES. WE SAVED A LOT OF LIVES. WE WERE GOOD A CRISIS CARE. TOWARD THE MIDDLE, AND OF THE CAREER. I NOTICED CHRONIC CONDITIONS COMING IN. IT FELT LIKE WE WERE A BAND-AID RATHER GETTING THE ROOT CAUSE. IF I WANT TO IMPACT MY PATIENT LIVES I WANT TO GET THEM HEALTHY. I NEED TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. I WENT TO FURTHER POSTGRADUATE TRAINING IN FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE. I DID IT WITH THE FUNCTIONAL OF INSTITUTE MEDICINE, CLEVELAND CLINIC. I GOT A HOST OF TOOLS TO OFFER PATIENTS. HOW TO FIGURE OUT THE ROOT CAUSE. THE RIGHT TESTING. MORE IMPORTANTLY BEING ABLE TO EDUCATE FUNCTIONAL NUTRITION, EXERCISE. SLEEP PRESCRIPTIONS. STRESS. UNDERSTANDING THAT. THAT IS WHAT WE WERE ABLE TO DO. THIS SCOTT PERSONAL DURING MEDICAL SCHOOL. THAT CHANGED YOU, SHAPED YOU. THAT IMPACTED ME. I REMEMBER VIVIDLY IN MEDICAL SCHOOL. THE TELEPHONE RANG. MY ROOMMATE BRIAN WAS DOWNSTAIRS. THEY SAID IT WAS MY MOM. I GOT ON THE PHONE. I COULD TELL IMMEDIATELY THERE WAS SOMETHING SERIOUS GOING ON. SHE SHARED THAT IT WAS MY DAD. SHE TOLD ME HE HAD A SECOND HEART ATTACK AT 59. THAT STRUCK ME. I BEGAN TO REALIZE HOW IMPORTANT HEALTH IS AND WHAT IT MEANS TO THOSE AROUND US. UNFORTUNATELY HE NEVER GOT TO BE A GRANDFATHER TO GRANDSONS OR THE BEST MAN AT MY WEDDING. HEALTH IS IMPORTANT. HE WAS 59. UNFORTUNATELY WE CONTINUE TO SEE THAT. I UNDERSTAND THAT IS WHAT HELPED YOU DECIDE. I DON’T WANT TO TREAT SYMPTOMS ANYMORE. I SEE SO MANY PRACTICE MEMBERS. PEOPLE DEAL WITH FATIGUE, DEPRESSION, ANXIETY. THE STUBBORN BELLY FAT. CHRONIC PAIN SOMETIMES. IT KEEPS THEM FROM LIVING LIFE TO THE FULLEST. I KNEW I NEEDED DIFFERENT TOOLS. IT IS FRUSTRATING FOR THEM. THEY CAN DO EVERYTHING RIGHT. EAT RIGHT, EXERCISE. THEY ARE DEALING WITH FRUSTRATING SYMPTOMS. THERE IS MORE TO IT THAT WE NEED TO UNDERSTAND FROM THAT STANDPOINT. GOT HEALTH IS IMPORTANT. IF YOUR BODY IS NOT BALANCED AND FUNCTIONING CORRECTLY. WE CAN DO EVERYTHING RIGHT WE WILL STILL NOT GET THE BENEFIT. THERE ARE THINGS THAT PLAY INTO HEALTH. EVEN HORMONES ARE IMPORTANT. STRESS HORMONES ESTROGEN IMBALANCE. THYROID IS A BIG FACTOR. IT IS IMPORTANT TO UNDERSTAND TO ADDRESS THOSE AND GET THE WORKUPS AND TESTS. NOT ONLY TO DO THAT BUT BEING EDUCATED ON WHAT TO DO. GETTING TO THE ROOT OF THE PROBLEM. YOU SHOWED ME AROUND. IT IS NOT A TYPICAL DOCTOR’S OFFICE. YOU HAVE VERY INTERACTIVE ROOMS, TOOLS FOR PEOPLE TO APPROACH MEDICINE IN A DIFFERENT WAY.>>ABSOLUTELY. THAT IS ONE OF THE CHALLENGES THAT WE ARE SAYING. A LOT OF PEOPLE I TALKED TO REALIZE WE HAVE A HEALTHCARE CRISIS. IT IS NOT THE DOCTORS, THE HEALTHCARE PROVIDER, THE SYSTEM WE OPERATE THAT IS CHALLENGING. WHEN WE LOOK AT NOT HAVING ENOUGH TIME. YOU ONLY GET ABOUT 7 OR 10 MINUTES TO SPEND WITH THE DOCTOR. THAT IS NOT ENOUGH TIME TO GET TO THE ROOT CAUSE. MORE IMPORTANTLY TO BE ABLE TO TEACH, EDUCATE WITH THE RIGHT TOOLS. ANOTHER CHALLENGE WE ARE SEEING A RISE OF HEALTH CONDITIONS. WE SEE AUTO IMMUNE CONDITIONS. CANCER, HEART DISEASE. THINK ABOUT IT. AS WE ADVANCE. WE SPENT MORE MONEY. WE ASK WHY. ONE OF THE CHALLENGES I SAY, WE ARE SPENDING THE MONEY ON AN EDUCATION SYSTEM THAT TEACHES DISEASE MANAGEMENT. WE ARE PUTTING BAND-AIDS INSTEAD OF GETTING TO THE ROOT CAUSE. THAT IS HOW WE ARE DIFFERENT THERE. DOING THE WORK UP THERE. THE BIGGEST THING WE SEE WHEN WE THINK OF WHAT WE ARE GOOD AT IN THE SYSTEM IS CRISIS CARE. THAT’S ONLY 10%. THAT’S WHAT CONVENTIONAL DOCTORS ARE GOOD AT. I AM ONE. SO THAT FIRSTHAND. THE BIGGER ISSUE IS THE 90% OF CHRONIC LIFESTYLE CAUSED DISEASES. IF WE TAKE THAT APPROACH WE WILL PUT BAND-AIDS ON THINGS. ACTUALLY WALKING PATIENTS BACK TO HELP. WITH THE EDUCATION, TAKING A LOOK AT WHAT THE PROBLEM MIGHT BE. INVESTING IN THEMSELVES AND HEALTH. THAT IS RIGHT. SOMETIMES IT’S ONE OF THOSE THINGS, HOW DO WE DO THAT? HOW DO WE GET STARTED? ONE THING WE WOULD LIKE TO DO, EVEN ON THE FRONT AND COPYING ABLE TO EDUCATE THOSE THAT WANT TO COME SEE US. WE ARE DIFFERENT. WE DO THAT THROUGH THE LIVE SEMINAR TALKS, WEBINARS. SO WE CAN MAKE SURE IT WILL BE A GOOD FIT. WE MOVE CAN’T TRANSITION DOWN. WE START TO LOOK AT HEALTH CONCERNS, GOALS. MORE IMPORTANTLY CUSTOMIZE THE INDIVIDUALIZED PROGRAM. WE WILL GIVE EVERYBODY THE INFORMATION AGAIN. TRI-CITIES UNCTION DON’T MEDICINE. IT IS RIGHT HERE IN JOHNSON CITY INVITING YOU TO COME BY AND MEET DOCTOR JOSEPH RADAWI AND THE REST OF THE TEAM MEMBERS. THANKS FOR HAVING US TODAY.
