Assessing Biochemical Individuality and The Balance Protocol with Dr. Anthony G. Beck [Podcast Episode #96]

By: Ben Brown

You’ve heard me say it before and you’ll continue to hear me say: We’re all biochemically individual or as the old adage goes, one man’s food is another man’s poison.

When we turn to social media, IG influencers, mainstream news, and “biohackers” to provide us with cookie cutter health solutions, we’re taking a “ready, fire, aim” approach to healing. Rather, we need to objectively and subjectively assess our starting point, determine and implement the individually appropriate steps to move the needle, and use those same metrics to strategically adjust as we move forward.

Today, I’m discussing these very concepts and more with Dr. Anthony G. Beck, a physician who has been practicing functional medicine for almost 25 years. In this conversation we break down Dr. Becks strategies for implementing and assessing long-term health and healing change with his clients through his Q2M2 approach in conjunction with the 4 over-arching principles to his balance protocol that revolve around: Environment, Lifestyle, Nutrition, and Mindset.

We all want to be healthy. We all want to be free of disease. But we have things and choices that we make within various realms that ultimately influence how our bodies manifest whatever status that they’re in. I call it the four factors.

Additionally, we discuss:

> Nutritional dogma, the scope of the field today and where to turn to for help

> How we use key performance indicators (KPI’s) to track progress

> The potential damage that “biohackers” pose on nutrition when the individual isn’t factored into the equation

> The environmental impact on one’s nutrition strategies

> The Coronavirus and supporting our immune systems

As a physician who has practiced Functional Medicine for almost 25 years, Dr. Anthony G. Beck doesn’t manage diseases ~ he empowers people to resolve them. With extensive education in many clinical disciplines such as Functional Medicine, clinical nutrition, systems biology, epigenetics and nutrigenomics, he takes a dynamic approach to assessing, educating, and working with his patients to achieve their highest levels of wellbeing.

Even more importantly, Dr. Beck wants to empower patients to demand a higher level of care from their health care providers. Dr. Beck’s approach involves a vast array of aspects including environment correction, healthful lifestyle design, individualized nutrition, hormone balancing, resolving immune dysfunction and clearing hidden infectious diseases.

Here he brilliantly transforms the new science of healthy living into programs that are simple, fun, completely straightforward and highly effective.
