These can be fluid and may vary in different situations. Tied closely to your 'code status' the decision may vary in different situations. For instance, the decision you may make to be resuscitated if you are found out in the field my vary from the decision you make should you flatline whilst undergoing surgery in the OR. This episode is designed to get us all thinking about not only how we want to die, but also the legacy we choose to leave behind.

Season 1 Episode 7- My journey into Functional Medicine
I recall several years ago when I was in private practice, I had a vision of creating a wellness-based practice that empowered people to optimize their overall health and wellness. One afternoon in 2006, whilst getting my car serviced at the Volvo dealership,  I received what I can only describe as a spiritual download of a program I named 'the integrative lifestyle modification program'. After I had written down my entire vision of what the program would entail, I realized that I did not the depth of knowledge I needed to deliver to my patients.   I compared this to having a great snazzy toolbox, but with no tools inside. That is until I discovered functional medicine. Listen in as I share my journey into functional medicine.  Join me in this episode, as I share what functional medicine is and how my journey into functional medicine has helped me become the healer I define as my purpose on the planet to be.   To learn more or to book a free 30-minute discovery session with me, log onto www.doctoreno.com
