After 15 years of practicing a type of medicine that helped people believe in their disease, and enriched pharmaceutical companies by putting people on lifetime medications, I came to the harsh realization that we only treat symptoms and don’t really bother attempting to restore health. We never talk about the cause of disease and have a long list of conditions that are “incurable”. Adults are on antidepressants and sleeping tablets, children are on ritalin, we’re almost all overweight – is it possible we’re missing something here? Diabetes is rising, antibiotics aren’t working. We are in real trouble if we continue on this path. Functional Medicine has some real solutions and I'm excited to introduce them to you with the popular BetYaLife Weight Loss Course.
Grant Fourie, MD is firm in his belief that we all deserve a life of optimal vitality – and that each of us has the potential to actualize this ourselves; a long, healthy, drug free life. As opposed to engaging solely in symptomatic treatments, Dr Grant Fourie is devoted to establishing the root cause of chronic disease and illness by harnessing the power of Functional Medicine to transform both our understanding of our bodies and healthcare as we know it to be today. Intimately involving himself with his patients to gain an understanding of the people that seek his advice and their lifestyles, instead of focusing on the symptoms of their illness. Dr Fourie works closely with his team of dedicated practitioners to enhance not only our social and economic resilience, but also to empower people and communities to heal their bodies and their minds from the inside out.
