The Anatomy of Death- A Montage
October 5, 2022
Hosted by Dr. Trevor Campbell, MD, CCFP
Part I of a two part discussion on Death with the author Ivan Obolensky. A much needed discussion on an even more greatly avoided subject, our inevitable departure from Life. As the title suggests, a synthetic (rather than analytic) approach was adopted, using an array of approaches and disciplines, employing paradox and sometimes even anachronism to assemble snippets that shed light on the complexity and scope of this slippery chimera. But are we even looking in the right direction? Do we already have more than a foothold?

The podcast focuses on health rather than disease. The conversation centers on resilience and epigenetics, the study of how other factors like behaviors and environment can influence gene expression. It also highlights daily healthful behaviors and techniques that may reduce the progression and facilitate recovery from chronic physical and mental diseases including chronic pain, addictions and trauma.
Lastly, it highlights helpful usable technologies as well as education on current trending medical delivery issues such as over-investigation and over-diagnosis. The aim is to encourage and educate you to take a more active and holistic approach to your own wellbeing.
