February 2017 Functional Forum Meetup
Evolution of Psychiatry
The Evolution of Medicine is thrilled to announce a new theme for our Functional Forums in 2017. Each monthly episode will focus on a different medical specialty and connect the value of a functional medicine approach to its evolution. This comes at a time where use of specialists is becoming an ever more costly drag on medical systems worldwide.
Each Forum will provide practitioners from all walks of medicine, not only Primary Care and Family Medicine, but all the integrative professions, with the clinical keys and practical emerging models to deliver truly effective predictive, preventive and participatory medicine.
With our unprecedented global meetup infrastructure, we will also seek to create new relationships locally between current specialists and with integrative providers in order to stimulate the creation of the specialty centers of the future.
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. 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 heath 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.
Featured Speakers: Janet Settle, MD, Will Van Derveer, MD, & Izabella Wentz, Pharm. D
Other Speakers: Chanel Heerman, MD

Dr. Cade Copeland
As a parent, I want the life for my kids to be better than the life I had. The reason why I’ve dedicated my life to natural health is due to the health problems I had as a child. Struggling with asthma, allergies, and headaches, I always thought there had to be a better way. I remember pressing the asthma inhaler to my lips, thinking “how long am I going to have to do this?”
I started my collegiate career with traditional Pre-Med in hopes of helping other kids and families with their own health problems. I imagined working in a small, medical family practice, but it wasn’t until I met the love of my life a few short weeks into the freshman year of college at St. Scholastica that a paradigm shift took place.
My wife has had much more serious health conditions than I ever did; she struggled with chronic fatigue, Epstein-Barr Virus, severe food allergies and intolerances, a depressed immune system and Crohn’s Disease. After years of medical tests, referrals to specialists, medications, and more, she landed in a Natural Health clinic with a feeling of hopelessness. However a few short months later, she started to turn things around. Within six months, she was back to her normal self and after a year she was a completely new person.
Having witnessed much of her victory over disabling diseases without medications, it became an obsession of mine to learn more. I shadowed the natural doctor who helped her, put in my application for chiropractic school upon his recommendations, and never looked back.
Being able to help people restore their health naturally is such a blessing, I can’t even begin to imagine doing anything different!
Much of my drive to be a better doctor is to be a better father. When I think of the health problems that held me back when I was young, the last thing I want is for my children to experience the same feelings. My passion is helping your family as much as my knowledge, training and experience has helped my own.
