Here at the Functional Forum our goal is to help to create structures that are capable of dealing with the modern epidemics of lifestyle driven chronic disease. Central to this shift is a movement from a patriarchal “Doctor Centric” model to more of an empowerment “Patient Centric” model. How can we create structures and systems that accelerate this movement? That is the purpose of this podcast series.


In our first episode in the series we spoke to Healthwave CEO Kyle Braatz and in the second episode we spoke to Freedom Practice Coaching CEO Matt Lowman, two companies whose technologies can drive and systematize effortless patient empowerment. In this episode we bring in Holistic Nutrition Lab Founder and CEO Andrea Nakayama, a technology that trains practitioners in the art and science of Functional Nutrition. Her ideas on empowerment really resonated with everything Gabe and I have seen in the field and so we are excited to add her to this series.

In this podcast you will learn

  • Why the ‘therapeutic partnership’ is the fundamental foundation of patient empowerment
  • How stories and metaphors help it make it easy for patients to understand the “Why” of your protocol
  • The best questions to use early in the intake form to get to root cause and empower patients
  • How Andrea’s work comes together with Matt and Kyle’s technologies work to form a powerful force
