What is GladdMD?
GladdMD is a movement dedicated to empowering individuals to optimal levels of well-being by creating a culture of health. GladdMD is inspired by the transformational journey of Dr. Jeffrey Gladd, MD. After plugging through ten years of medical school, family medicine residency and private practice with the institutional blinders on, Dr. Gladd discovered the incredible power of whole foods eating. He regained his health, lost 50 pounds, and no longer depended on prescriptions for panic attacks. Through this journey, his medical practice also shifted, now appreciating and cultivating the body’s innate capacity of self-healing, Dr. Gladd promotes health rather than simply managing disease. By marrying conventional medicine with an alternative approach that incorporates nutrition, exercise and stress management, GladdMD empowers individuals to transform their lifestyles to discover true and sustainable health.
What is integrative medicine?
The focus on integative medicine is to promote health rather than merely manage disease. The University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine, where Dr. Gladd trained under Dr. Andrew Weil, MD, defines it as “healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, including all aspects of lifestyle. It emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between practitioner and patient, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapies.” At GladdMD, we partner with our patients and empower them with evidence-based tools to make the best possible choices with the goal being a return to health, or staying on the path.
