Can we eliminate prescription narcotics, even after spinal surgery? It might sound far-fetched, but that is just one of the promises of Holistic Medicine. In this episode, orthopedic spine surgeon Dr. Hooman Melamed joins Fight Back as our special guest. Dr. Melamed is an outspoken advocate of holistic and integrated medicine, the idea that we need to address all aspects of our health for our bodies to be in optimal condition.

First, he shares his personal experience about how he greatly improved his health by transforming his diet. Then we discuss what this looks like in day-to-day practices, especially regarding the food you eat—incorporating probiotics, how your gut health plays a significant role in your overall health, how the balance of good and bad bacteria in your gut can impact how you feel, how preventative nutrition can help you before and after a medical procedure, and much more.

Listen in to learn how you might benefit from a holistic and integrated approach to your health.
