In today’s episode we talk with Dr. Marvin Singh about integrative gastroenterology, and with Jill Lane about biological vs. chronological age.
Integrative Medicine and Gastroenterology
Dr. Singh joins us today to talk about the practice of integrative gastroenterology. This type of medicine is much different than conventional gastroenterology because it utilizes things like diet, sleep habits, stress levels, etc. to determine treatment. Integrative medicine is something that is starting to be implemented by doctors all over the country because it is so promising. Dr. Singh tells us how he takes the time to get to know his patients before treating them. By spending time and talking with his patients he understands the bigger picture of why they may be having health concerns. This makes for a great patient-doctor relationship.
- Dr. Marvin Singh is the first physician in California to be Board Certified in Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology in addition to being a Diplomate of the American Board of Integrative Medicine. Dr. Singh was trained by Dr. Andrew Weil, a pioneer in the field of integrative medicine, at the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine.
