On this episode of the podcast, I welcome Dr. Sharad P. Paul to discuss medicine and health. Dr. Sharad P. Paul, MD is a skin cancer surgeon, family physician, academic, skincare expert, evolutionary biologist, storyteller, and social entrepreneur, as well as an adjunct professor at Auckland University of Technology. Born in England, with a childhood in India, he is a global citizen who lives Down Under. In 2008, was featured in international editions of Time and in 2015 was awarded the prestigious Ko Awatea International Excellence Award for Leading (Health) Improvement on a Global Scale.

In this episode, we discuss:

-The most important questions to ask your physician at a yearly check-up

-The Genetics of Health: making medicine personal

-How historical human migration and diet patterns influence your Vitamin D levels and Omega 6:3 ratio

-Should the medical system be proactive or reactive with illness?

-And so much more!

 

The healthcare system today is primarily focused on reactively treating illness with very little resources going towards proactive treatment and advice. Dr. Paul stresses, “Medicine isn’t health. Medicine is an industry... It doesn’t automatically mean good health.”

 

Dr. Paul believes that achieving good health is done by both recognizing genetic risk factors and adjusting your environment appropriately. For those seeking to provide more personal healthcare, Dr. Paul advises, “It’s important to get to know the person and not just the illness.”

 

Dr. Paul advocates people become knowledgeable about what it takes to live a healthy lifestyle and take action to achieve their health goals. Dr. Paul recommends to, “Increase your sense of personal responsibility.”
