  • Things to Know About 10x Health - Navigating Personal Health Optimization with Dr John Beedle

    30 APR 2024 · My journey with the 10X Health System took an unexpected turn, and I'm here to share the highs and lows I encountered. When you're promised a transformation and left grappling with disappointments, it's the wisdom of friends like Dr. John Beedle that can help steer you back on course. Together, we shed light on what it really means to navigate personal health in today's complex landscape, contrasting the polished promotions with the raw realities we faced. Facing the healthcare system can be a Goliath of a challenge, and it's starkly different for those with deep pockets versus the average Joe. Dr. Beadle's poignant account of his father's battle with type 2 diabetes underscores the glaring gaps in medical advice and the critical importance of tailored healthcare. And it's not just about the science; the response of a healthcare entity to its patrons' feedback can make or break the trust and effectiveness of the patient-care provider relationship. We wrap up with a call to action for anyone striving to take control of their health, offering a treasure trove of insights into the ethical use of supplements, the potential of peptides and testosterone in fitness, and the sheer willpower behind completing an ultra-endurance feat like an Ironman triathlon. Plus, we share a sneak peek into the world of functional medicine through my own lens, as a practitioner determined to treat patients with the individualized care they deserve.
