Have you seen doctor after doctor and your health issue still is not resolved? Has your doctor just put a bandaid over your symptom without determining the root cause? If so, maybe seeing a functional medicine doctor is right for you! In this episode of Coffee & Kettlebells, Dr. John Bartemus explains the different approaches between functional medicine versus mainstream medicine and how one buys you health and the other just buys you time.


  • Medication are band aids for your symptoms and doesn’t address the root cause of the symptom.
  • Functional medicine treats a patient whereas traditional medicine treats a symptom
  • Diseases manifest differently and look differently in each person
  • Diets should be specific to the individual
  • Following a specific protocol lead to assumptions
