They get discuss the details of how a functional medical practitioner (FMP)is different that a standard General Practitioner medical Dr. And why a performance athlete may benefit from the closer look a FMP will provide.

They discussed what Chris’s intake looks like and what working with him is like. Why is it important to get proper lab testing before starting a supplement regimen? How can that save you time and money? Elijah asks those questions and more on this episode of the obstacle order.
