Dr. Jade Teta is a man of many things. In his own words..."I have a degree in biochemistry and I am a physician. Although, my friends give me a hard time for never referring to myself as "Doctor." I guess I always found it too formal, have grown past the need for accolades and, depending on who you ask, some don't consider me a doctor at all. Given my specialty in natural medicine, I have been called everything from "quack" to "witch doctor." Believe it or not, I take that as a compliment. The choice to go into alternative medicine was conscious and deliberate.
My medical specialty is in a subset of medicine called naturopathic medicine. Think of your family doctor, but instead of using drugs and surgery first, while knowing little to nothing about diet and exercise, I use drugs second and I am an expert in nutrition, exercise and supplements.
My specialty is "integrative endocrinology." It's the study of hormones & metabolism. The integrative part just means that I integrate both conventional and alternative methods. Most of my career has been helping the most difficult metabolic cases lose weight."
Anthony and Jade had an awesome conversation around human performance, mindset, and the human experience as a whole.
Jade works with a lot of executives and high-profile clients who are looking to rebound from adversity or change their lifestyle and way of thinking.
