MBODY360 Featured in James Maskell’s Newly Released Book “The Evolution of Medicine”
MBODY360 announced today its platform and application connecting integrative health practitioners with their clients and patients has been featured in James Maskell’s new book “The Evolution of Medicine.”
Maskell, one the most influential thought leaders in the integrative health movement, speaks globally on “community micropractice” approaches to improving health by extending traditional medicine. His new book lays out a way for physicians to, as the subtitle puts it, “Join the Movement to Solve Chronic Disease and Fall Back in Love with Medicine.”
MBODY360 is referenced in the book as one of several digital platforms that are completely changing the ways health and wellness coaches can communicate with their clients, setting up nutritional plans that can be easily delivered and tracked conveniently and effectively.
“James Maskell’s vision for the opportunities for physicians to connect to the wisdom of integrative, holistic medicine has long been a source of inspiration for the MBODY360 team,” said Kari Thorstensen, founder and CEO of the company. “In his talks and in this book, James opens the door for physicians to contribute to this evolution and revolution in health and wellness care delivery.”
One of the highlights in Maskell’s book is the concept of the “micropractice” – what he calls the “low-overhead, technologically-enabled practices in a community setting.” He shares smart use of e-mail as an initial educational too, and in a chapter on increasing efficiency he covers, in addition to MBODY360’s platform, Living Matrix, IGGBO, Fullscript, MDHQ, NudgeCOACH, and Mymee.
Maskell’s Evolution of Medicine organization, which he co-founded with Gabe Hoffman, has a goal to “to empower 100,000 Integrative and Functional ‘micropractices’ that treat the root-cause of disease and become centers of health creation in their respective communities.” initial goal.
Deepak Chopra, MD, FACP, and founder of the Chopra Center for Wellbeing, said of the book: “With physicians losing faith in industrialized medicine at record speed, a new paradigm is needed to engage both physicians and patients into health creation. The ‘Functional Micropractice’ is a fascinating concept and will accelerate the movement towards truly integrated healthcare. I recommend this book to any physician colleague.”
