Joseph E. Scherger, MD, MPH, is a family physician of 40 years and an avid runner who has carried over his passion for fitness and nutrition into treating patients.

He achieved this through moving to practicing functional medicine a decade ago.

According to Scherger, functional medicine “shifts the whole approach [to family medicine], recognizing that people’s chronic diseases, like hypertension and diabetes, are completely reversible, and the reason why is because they’re caused by what we eat and how we live.”

Dear Eartha, I know that changes to the climate are real, but they’re not really affecting my life. I love this warmer weather! What do I really have to lose?

Many of us get up and go to work or school, talk with friends and family and pursue our interests without feeling the inconvenient intrusion of the climate crisis. Even with last year’s record-setting wildfires, continued extreme drought and compounding low snowpack,
