Publisher's Summary

The world is facing the greatest healthcare crisis it has ever seen. Chronic disease is shortening our lifespan, destroying our quality of life, bankrupting governments, and threatening the health of future generations. Sadly, conventional medicine, with its focus on managing symptoms, has failed to address this challenge. The result is burned-out physicians, a sicker population, and a broken healthcare system.
In Unconventional Medicine, Chris Kresser presents a plan to reverse this dangerous trend. He shows how the combination of functional medicine, an ancestral diet and lifestyle, and a collaborative practice model can create a system that better serves the needs of both patients and practitioners.
The epidemic of chronic disease can be stopped if patients and practitioners can adapt.

Little new to offer

I have listened to and read Chris Kresser’s work for a couple years now and have always found him informative when it comes to using your diet to curb ailments and promote overall wellness.

That said, I found this book to be little more than a refresher on the basics of healthy ancestral living habits. Of course, the sections geared towards medical professionals are excluded from that opinion because I’m not in that field.

There are no mistakes or questionable ideas in the book, it’s just that most of the information is common knowledge she for those who have invested at least some time learning about ancestral diets and curbing chronic diseases.

I’ll continue to keep the author on my radar but would only recommend this book to those who have never considered healthy habits.

Helped a nursing student reignite their purpose

I am a second degree Nursing student expected to graduate soon. I was beginning to lose sight of my goal of working in functional medicine as a nurse practitioner. After listening to this book I was reminded why I chose this path. This is a must read for anyone medical or nursing student who is feeling burned out and questioning their career goals in conventional medicine.

inspirational

This book gives me hope that we can turn things around if enough people embrace the functional medicine model. As normal citizens we all should keep asking our traditional doctors to change to this new model and insist on our politicians to embrace the concept too.
