Digital Detox and the Importance of Mindfully Disconnecting

When it Comes to Health, Sometimes We Need to Unplug

Mr. Brandon LaGreca, LAc, MAcOM, a licensed acupuncturist, author, speaker, and holistic medical practitioner joins Dr. George to discuss the importance of digital detox for physical, mental and spiritual rejuvenation.

Initially, Brandon shares about his own personal experience with cancer. Back in 2015, he was diagnosed with stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He achieved full remission eight months later by following an integrative medicine protocol that included immunotherapy without the use of chemotherapy, radiation, or surgery. As a result, Brandon created his Empowered Patient Blog to share his experience growing stronger through and beyond cancer.

Afterwards, he delves into the increasing amount of patients he has seen over the last year with elevated stress levels. This stress is overwhelmingly the result of fear and the overuse of digital devices and social media. Therefore he offers some simple solutions and ways to measure the overuse of electronics.
