At the beginning of May, I had the privilege of attending the EPIC Functional Medicine Conference where I met a lot of amazing and inspiring practitioners who are really changing the game in healthcare. Dr. Robert G. Silverman was one of the first speakers, and he really set the stage with a powerful presentation about the blood-brain barrier. I know from experience that a brain injury really compromises this barrier that keeps toxins out and allows nutrients into the brain. And that’s kinda what it all comes down to: less toxins, more nutrients.
Dr. Silverman is a thought leader in his field and practice. He has more letters after his name than are found in a bowl of alphabet soup (44 Letters… including six different degrees in clinical nutrition). Dr. Silverman also maintains a busy private practice (Westchester Integrative Health Center) where he and his team work to heal the body from the inside out. He is a chiropractic doctor, clinical nutritionist (x6), international speaker and author of, “Inside-Out Health: A Revolutionary Approach to Your Body,” an Amazon No. 1 bestseller in 2016. The ACA Sports Council named Dr. Silverman “Sports Chiropractor of the Year” in 2015.
Dr. Silverman is on the advisory board for the Functional Medicine University and is a seasoned health and wellness expert on both the speaking circuits and within the media. He’s also a frequent health expert contributor on national blogs such as Consumer Health Digest. He has appeared on FOX News Channel, FOX, NBC, CBS, CW affiliates as well as The Wall Street Journal and NewsMax, to name a few.

Thank you for such a great pod cast. I am currently caring for my son,who aquired a brain injury from surgery to remove a brain tumour. He has been responding well but still needs to learn how to walk and do all the physical movements a 3yr old would normally do. The diet is very much based on Keto and looking after his digestion. Keep up your amazing work.
