Dr. Lisa Broyles
Dr. Lisa Broyles, MD, is trained in the Bredesen Protocol, a personalized program to prevent and reverse cognitive decline. It is estimated that nearly 50 million currently living Americans will die of Alzheimer’s disease if effective prevention and reversal are not implemented–almost 100 times more than have died of COVID-19. Mainstream medicine would have you believe that it can’t be prevented, is untreatable, and progressive, with most patients not surviving beyond three to eleven years post-diagnosis.
But we are learning that the disease is a pathology of multiple causes that is preventable and even reversible in the early stages through the kind of holistic and individualized approach prescribed by the Bredesen Protocol.
A certified functional medicine doctor with an interest in holistic/integrative medicine, Dr. Broyles is transforming medical care in rural North Carolina. Addressing the underlying causes of disease rather than simply treating symptoms, Dr. Broyles uses a systems-oriented, holistic approach that engages both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. The result has been a palpable rise in health IQ and wellness in the community she serves.
“People are hungry for this kind of patient/physician collaborative care. They want to take charge of their well-being. They want to feel empowered. Too often, though, the insurance system in America limits choices for physicians and patients alike. Functional medicine represents a fundamental paradigm shift from symptom suppression to an integrative body/mind approach to optimal health,” said Dr. Broyles.
Hoping to help more people than her limited practice can accommodate, Dr. Broyles is reaching out to her community through the Cutting-Edge Health podcast and other platforms. At the end of each podcast, Dr. Broyles will answer your questions.
Having graduated from the Brody School of Medicine at East Carolina University and completed her three-year residency at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville, Dr. Broyles is currently a family practitioner in Saluda, North Carolina.
