Secrets of Health Optimization with Ted Achacoso, MD A New Paradigm of Maximizing Health

Allopathic Medicine, Integrative Medicine, Alternative Medicine, Complementary Medicine, and Functional Medicine are all “Illness Medicine” practices, according to Ted Achacoso, MD. They all diagnose and treat disease. And thus, they are ill-prepared to truly help you detect and correct the subtle imbalances that will allow you to take your health to the next level.
Health Optimization Medicine (HOMe), on the other hand, detects and corrects imbalances applying the cutting-edge sciences of Clinical Metabolomics, Epigenetics, Gut Microbiome Health, Exposomics, Chronobiology, and Evolutionary Medicine – subjects that are not currently taught in medical schools.
By focusing on detecting and correcting the imbalances unique to that individual at the biochemical, micronutrient, microbiota, and hormonal level, health can be first restored, and then maximized.
This approach is not about fixing disease and makes no claims about fixing any particular disease — it’s about restoring balance to the body. When the body is in balance, improved wellbeing and health follow naturally. Any disease that happens to improve by correcting imbalances is just a “beneficial side effect” of bringing one’s body into balance. Dr. Ted believes this is the path to transforming medicine as we know it and ushering in the era of “Medicine 2.0.”

• Why you shouldn’t wait til your health is broken before fixing/optimizing it
• How Health Optimization Medicine (HOMe) starts with evolutionary medicine, but goes beyond standard evolutionary medicine treatments
• How the science of metabolomics can help you take your health to the next level
• Dr. Ted’s keys to bio-identical hormone replacement for more energy and better health
• Dr. Ted’s pragmatic solutions to getting people instant gratification to get people to follow through on the new health habits (and why he may start with hormone-replacement before fixing underlying causes at the lifestyle level, in many cases)
• How Dr. Ted approaches optimzing your diet (carbs, fats, and proteins) for health/energy/body composition your types of activities (and why he thinks you daily fasting window is a huge key)

  1. Geeky! 😂. Great interview.
    And it kinda Reminded me of Suzanne Somers.. She's on all kinds of bioidenticals! And I agree Drs need to be testing for much more than the usual
    CbC. We need to build up health and prevent this crap from happening so often in the first place because, from personal experience it is much more difficult to get back to health after you've tipped over into disease state. Also genetic predisposition in DNA should be looked at as part of the whole…. I love the one size doesn't fit all and we need individualization method alot!

  2. This was such a fantastic interview. I am so impressed with both of these guys’ knowledge as well as sensitivity of delivery. This is the kind of intelligent exchange that gives me faith in humanity! Hopefully it portends the death of our superficial culture which has its head up it’s narcissistic ass (yes, to Ari’s point—that includes the post-modernist relativism—particularly as it relates to its unexamined overvaluation of the ego-centric “head.”) The head is just a nerve node in the vast forest of the body, all of which is alive with intelligence. That is why, the Left (pardon me for bringing politics into it) will eventually be made to realize that it has completely abandoned biology and evolution in it’s head-centered, and actually selfish, utopian endeavors.
