(Ep. 45) Let’s Talk Sex with Dr. Joseph Carchedi

On this weeks episode of The Beats, Kelly Kennedy sits down with her long time friends Dr. Carchedi to talk about sex.

Yup, you read that right folks.

We all have sex organs and we all take part in sexual activities and intimacy, yet we often don’t think or talk about how sex contributes to our overall health.

In this episode Dr. Carchedi and Kelly Kennedy break that barrier and bring to the forefront topics that we all need to hear and acknowledge. At the end of the day we are all sexual beings thus sex is also an aspect of our bodies we need to acknowledge to attain overall health.

Joseph Carchedi, MD, ABIHM, ACN, is a Board Certified Practitioner of the world renown Institute of Functional Medicine and founder of the Lower Gwynedd Functional Medicine Institute. Dr. Carchedi provides an integrative, functional approach to identifying the underlying causes of disease, rather than the traditional method of diagnosing and prescribing.

His focus is patient-centered utilizing holistic healing by treating the mind, body, and spirit. This approach includes Gene analysis (Genomics), sophisticated nutritional strategies, herbal remedies and supplements, IV therapies and the recent state of the art Platelet Rich Plasma injections, and if required, traditional pharmaceuticals.
