Who We Are
About the Host - Kellen Weiss
My first exposure to functional medicine was in middle school. Seemingly overnight, I had developed crippling anxiety and OCD. This hindered my ability to function in everyday life. I bounced around from doctor to doctor, but we always ended up at the same place; picking up yet another prescription that just did not work.
We decided to look outside of the traditional medicine space and found a great mental health practitioner that started looking into my lifestyle. He assessed my diet and exercise routine. I cut sugar out of my diet, enrolled in an exercise class, and started supplementing with L-Theanine. My life was back to normal! My chiropractor, who thought in a similar manner, started mentoring me and teaching me more about functional medicine. I was hooked!
After having been in this industry, as a rep and as a patient, I soon realized that there was a big problem with the functional medicine space – networking was almost non-existent. Like-minded practitioners were not finding each other, so patient care was inconsistent from a patient-sharing standpoint. Since TRIM was developed, we have linked up dozens and dozens of like-minded practitioners from vastly different backgrounds to not only keep consistent care, educate each other, but also to expand their horizons about possible care options for their patients moving forward.
