It was an honor to have dinner with Dr. Jeffrey Bland, founder of Functional Medicine, while at The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) Longevity Conference. He introduced a concept that brings real hope to people and the planet during these times.
It is called immuno-rejuvenation and it is the counterpart to immuno-senescence.
This quote from his company’s website Big Bold Health simplifies the message that we can all appreciate and share with patients, colleagues, friends and family:
“You were born for resilience, with an immune system designed to get you there.”
Practicing medicine and particularly integrative medicine with this concept in mind and heart shifts the approach to one more focused on encouraging resilience and truly working with the body and its innate intelligence, to promote long term healing.
