My guest this week is Amy Jaramillo, Scientific Director of BodyScience.

In this episode, Amy and I discuss her scientific approach to looking at diseases and the body. Her goal is to get to the root cause of health issues. She looks at health through a different kind of scientific lens where she is able to look at patterns and see the body as a puzzle. We talk about how her and her team treat underlying infections and reverse diseases such as ALS. Even if you are well versed in infections this episode covers a lot. Lastly, no episode would be complete without touching on one of our favorites–peptides.

Amy Jaramillo is the Founder of Body Science LLC, a science based medical center developed with a mission to identify the root cause of health syndromes.  We identify the triggers, exposures and genetic predispositions responsible for conditions including: Motor Neurone Disease, Thyroid Dysregulation, Adrenal Fatigue, ADD/ADHD, Auto-Immunity, Diabetes, Leaky Gut, and Infertility and then we correct them.  Our goal is to cure, not merely to medicate.  A graduate of Florida State University with a B.S. in Biology and Chemistry, Amy has over 21 years of experience in the healthcare industry. She is a member of the American Academy of Anti -Aging (A4M) since 2011 and a past member of the Association for the Advancement of Restorative Medicine (AARM).  Amy has extensive experience working in the fields of bio-genetics and bio-technology understanding the genetics-disease link as well as in the field of brain stimulation, implantation and neuromodulation for neuro-degenerative disease.
