Sleep Matters: The Missing Link in Functional Medicine

Sleep is the missing link in the functional medicine equation. When we talk about sleep, we often focus on quantity as it relates to the body’s ability to recover from concussion, achieve optimum athletic performance levels, or heal from chronic conditions. However, we often neglect the role quality sleep plays in brain health; specifically, its links to poor memory, trouble concentrating, age-related dementia, and Alzheimer’s disease.

Join Dr. Rob Silverman, a chiropractic doctor, clinical nutritionist, and functional medicine practitioner—as he shares sleep’s multi-faceted impact on health and why a truly holistic functional medicine approach must prescribe proper sleep.

Key Clinical Takeaways

1. Endotoxicity and oxidative stress effect on sleep.
2. Nutritional protocols for concussion, Alzheimer’s, and brain health.
3. The emerging area of innovative sleep tools.
4. Review the physiology and neuro-biology of sleep.
5. A functional approach to improved sleep.
6. The gut-brain axis effect on sleep.

In his previous lecture on the brain, he really cut through absolutely everything else I’ve heard out there on BDNF and showed a list of almost 10 ways to practically raise our brain derived neurotrophic factors only one of which was a ketone, ie beyond keto for brain health.

Silverman does use keto sometimes himself but he explains things in a way that shows you how to get results without it. Our most recent lecture by Michael Jurgelewicz went beyond keto and beyond Bredesen. It’s important to note this when so much is leaking out now in terms of side effects for keto.
