About the Author
Scott Bukow graduated from Loyola Marymount University with a degree and desire to get into healthcare. With an additional passion to see the world, he opened an International Export Business and along the way discovered what is called Functional Medicine. He became an executive with the largest Functional Medicine company in the U.S. and merged his business to develop a global presence for the company. For 20 years he developed business and educated physicians on Chronic Health conditions and new science in Functional Medicine in Europe, South America, Asia and other parts of the world. At the top of his career, he broke from stress and suffered a horrific accident that almost took his life and fractured his skull in multiple areas. After being discharged from the hospital, he was told nothing about brain injuries and the long-term effects. He developed an autoimmune condition which was attacking his brain. After being misdiagnosed and a few years of isolation and brain deterioration, he found new science in neurology that discovered his autoimmune condition and brought back a full recovery. After making a full recovery he went back to the corporate world educating physicians about blood sugar, autoimmune, brain injuries and GI disorders. Along the way he searched for an advanced degree in healthcare that combined his Functional Medicine experience with the fastest growing integrative nutrition school in the world. His certification is now acknowledged by The American Medical Association as a need and answer to looking at health from both the science of nutrition combined with addressing our mental and spiritual health as a key to health, healing and happiness. He resides in Southern California with his wife. He continues educating in the corporate world to doctors, as well as a side practice of seeing patients to use his 25 years of experience, his personal journey and certification to help prevent people from chronic health issues or turn them back to whole health.
