Ever wonder how our western medicine doctors think about our approach to healthcare in the US? Tune in to hear one doctor's story of how he left Western Medicine for Integrative Medicine after changes he made in his own personal health journey. You'll leave feeling inspired to cultivate your own practices of mindfulness and intention in your own health journey.
Bill (William K.) Appelgate believes that inspiring improved personal health behaviors is the change-the-world strategy required for the future of healthcare in America. He is the Executive Director of the Iowa Chronic Care Consortium and Founder of the Clinical Health Coach® training. His professional work has included service as a director of a university research center, a college foundation director, a college president, CEO of two comprehensive, innovative healthcare systems as well as vice-president and clinical professor at a leading graduate health sciences university and medical school.
Dr. Appelgate also happens to be one of my mentors whom I interviewed for my book, The Art of Health Hacking, and worked with on the Clinical Health Coach Training team or a few years. If you want to understand HOW and WHY people change, and how you might consider approaching behavior change in your life, definitely tune in. You’ll leave feeling more empowered and activated in your own health journey!
I met Dr. Tom O’Bryan at a healthcare conference this past summer.

If you’re looking for simple ways you can avoid toxins in our modern day world and want to fix underlying issues in your health, then this episode is for you.
