One World medicine
Dr. Chopra and Dr. Raphael Kellman, founder of the Kellman Center and a specialist in Microbiom, explain in this episode how the Microbiom are trillions of bacteria in our gut, outnumbering our human cells, 10 to 1. These bacteria play a role in metabolism and gut function, a critical role in immune function, and a critical role in the function of the brain. This is something the Western medical practices have terribly overlooked until recently. About 20 to 30% of chemicals circulating in our blood are the metabolic product of these bacteria, cross-talking back and forward with the human genome. The Microbiom is the master key to a healthy immune system as well as healthy brain function, something ancient tradition have known for thousands of years!

Raphael Kellman, MD, graduate of Albert Einstein College of Medicine, pioneered a groundbreaking new brand of medicine and healing. He seamlessly integrates holistic and functional medicine with his visionary understanding of the world and nature, the root of who we are and its connection to health and healing. Dr. Kellman was the first doctor to recognize the profound importance of the microbiome; he speaks on the topic around the world and literally coined the term “Microbiome Medicine.” Widely respected as a groundbreaking force in holistic and functional medicine, Dr. Kellman has diagnosed countless thousands of patients around the world suffering from undiagnosed thyroid disease through his innovative testing approach which goes much deeper than conventional testing. Through his deep understanding of the importance of the microbiome, Dr. Kellman treats gastrointestinal issues, chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, Lyme disease, cancer, autism spectrum disorders, and unexplained, unresolved health issues.
Informed by his background in the philosophy of science, Dr. Kellman’s treatments are administered with compassion and kindness. He draws on the latest research to address patients’ biochemistry, metabolism, hormones, genetics, environment, emotions, and life circumstances to help them achieve optimal health.
In addition to providing patient care and managing a thriving medical practice, Dr. Kellman publishes and lectures all over the world, advocating for whole-patient care and discussing his cutting-edge approach to curing illness through healing the microbiome.
