Boy oh boy do we get into it today!

Dr. Jordan Robertson joins me today and we dive right into the conversation between the fine line of saying what we want and ruffling feathers. We talk about the backlash she’s received from some of her colleagues and what she sees so often in the alternative health field – belief based practice vs. evidence based practice. I’m certain it’s going to strike a chord with you.

We bonded over the idea that there is no one right way to do something. And we talked about how to raise the standards for alternative health by being in service to the patient or client and giving them the best recommendation based in evidence vs. promoting your personal opinions whether or not it’s in the best interest of clients/patients.

Keep scrolling to see all that we cover in this great conversation…
