Leveraging Lifestyle and Epigenetics: Surviving to Thriving
Dr. Stickler co-founded the Apeiron Academy to introduce a new style of education and learning to the world of precision wellness. The Academy is a culmination of a long held vision that nothing can be fully known without first having been fully experienced.
Dr. Stickler entered medical school with a vision of helping people to create an optimized life. He quickly found that the training focused solely on treating disease and postponing the stepwise progression to death.
In the search to make an immediate difference, Dr. Stickler trained as a general and vascular surgeon specializing in laparoscopic weight loss surgery. He developed a highly successful, whole systems approach to health and collaborated with a comprehensive team of dietitians, health psychologists, and exercise physiologists to provide his patients with the best possible outcome. After 10 years and nearly 3,000 operations he came to the conclusion that the surgical approach was not the ideal option. He discovered that lifestyle change was the way to create an optimized life.
His journey to find the ideal approach to optimizing human potential took him on a path through functional medicine, alternative care, holistic, naturopathic, and age-management medicine. Each encounter fell short of the outcome of a truly optimized human and in fact was not much different from the allopathic approach.Back to speakers Register
