Dr. Lekkos is a functional medicine doctor and the founder of Bios Functional Medicine in Santa Monica. He earned his doctorate in osteopathic medicine from the University of North Texas Health Science Center, has a master’s degree in metabolic and nutritional medicine from the University of South Florida Medical College, and is board-certified in anti-aging, regenerative, and functional medicine. Unlike most doctors, Lekkos looks at you as a whole person. I was told by multiple people this man solves the unsolvable and man were they right. In our first session we just talked for two hours, just like, about who I am – which I don’t know about you, have never happened to me in a doctor’s office. Rather than bandaging symptoms, he looks at you as whole person, and address true underlying causes. His goal is to make you feel better now, while preventing disease so you can literally live your best life. He also offers really cool regenerative services using adult stem cells to activate the body's built-in mechanism of self-repair and restore function to once declining health - essentially, he’s a master bio-hacker. Listen, I understand a service like this comes with privilege, so until our healthcare system makes much needed changes, I did my best to you all answers you need, including what most people should be eating, the importance of sleep hygiene, what supplements most people should be taking, why we need to cut out chemicals and most importantly, how effects of mental health on your body. This conversation was important to me, so we decided to skip out on our relationship Q&A this week. Enjoy!
