Dr Bill Code
At 42, Dr. Bill Code was at the height of a successful and challenging career in Anesthesiology when a Neurologist diagnosed the symptoms that had plagued him for fifteen years as progressive Multiple Sclerosis (or MS), an autoimmune disease where the immune system attacks the central nervous system (brain, spinal cord and optic nerves), often resulting in severe pain and neurological deterioration.
Because treatment options were extremely limited in the traditional medicine model, Dr. Code lost his hospital privileges and could no longer work in the field of Anesthesiology.
It was not until 1997, while attending a conference entitled Complementary & Alternative Medical Choices for Multiple Sclerosis that Dr. Code began to have hope. He immediately gave up wheat and experienced an improvement in his symptoms.
Dr. Code began to investigate the integration of organic foods, vitamins, supplements and other holistic wellness regimens to facilitate his healing process. It was his own progression over the next few months that drove Dr. Code’s passion in Integrative Medicine, an approach to medicine that encompasses both conventional treatments but also combines natural medicine paradigms.
As an acclaimed speaker and author, Dr. Code's books include; Who's in Control of your Multiple Sclerosis, Youth Renewed, Winning the Pain Game, and Point of Return. In early 2008, Dr. Code fulfilled one of his dreams - an extended bicycle tour of Sicily with his wife Denise.
In this episode, Dr Bill will share with us:
- the story of his MS diagnosis
- how traditional and modern medicines overlap
- the importance of emotions and self-belief in developing and recovering from illnesses
- ways to reconnect the mind, body and spirit
