February Functional Forum Meetup
For our next 2017 episode, we’ll be revisiting one of our most popular topics on the Functional Forum, the future of mental health care. This episode will be shot live in Boulder, Colorado.
We are excited to feature two psychiatrists scaling, through their “Psychiatry Masterclass”, a training program, root cause based psychiatry to millions of Americans. Janet Settle, MD and Will Van Derveer, MD will present on the fundamentals of integrative psychiatry.
Returning to the Functional Forum stage for her first keynote is Thyroid Pharmacist Dr. Izabella Wentz, as she looks at the connection between thyroid health and depression, looking at proven protocols to unwind the underlying cause of an increasingly common dysfunction.
We will also take a virtual tour of Dr. Scott Shannon’s integrative clinic, a model for the future of mental health.

About your host:
I am passionate about inspiring wellness and my mission is to help you take back your health and discover your own innate power to heal from within. Like you, I’ve had multiple careers and juggled multiple roles in my life, from a Registered Nurse to successful corporate business development and sales roles, business owner and entrepreneur. I’ve been a full time working mother, part time working mother and a stay at home mother and raised four adult children. I’ve coached many to navigate chronic debilitating illnesses from cancer and addictions and I intimately understand the challenges you face today managing parenting, marriage, challenging work environments and aging parents. These stresses can play a key role in aging and chronic disease and my goal is to inspire you through evidence based, effective transformational solutions. Today, in my 50’s I feel younger and more vibrant than I did in my 30’s and 40’s and my goal is to help you look and feel your best too! I am a retired Registered Nurse, a Certified Health Coach and a Registered Yoga Teacher. I have a small exclusive private practice and love to speak and share my passion for health and wellness. My mission is to inspire, educate, and promote true wellness, not merely the absence of illness. To teach others the power to heal from within and to recognize that “dis-ease” is the body’s only way to communicate; it is time we learned how to listen.
