I’m honored to have Dr. Jeoff Drobot, one of the founders and medical directors of the American Center for Biological Medicine in Scottsdale, Arizona, on the podcast today. If you haven’t ever heard of biological medicine you’re probably not alone, but Dr. Jeff is here to explain how it differs from other forms of medicine and why he’s so passionate about it.
Dr. Jeoff has spent the last 20 years seeking out cutting-edge science and technology to assess and amplify human biology and physiology. Thanks to his work Dr. Jeoff is now considered a leading authority in biological medicine worldwide and ACBM is the largest and most comprehensive biological medicine facility in North America. (I really want to plan a visit!)
Is Biological Medicine for You?
So what is biological medicine? Here’s how the ACBM website explains it:
Inside your body are a multitude of biological processes, all working at the same time. The relationship between these processes determine how the body is able to defend and heal itself. Those doctors dedicated to Biological Medicine understand that the focus must be on identifying the problem processes within the body and not the symptoms that those processes are exhibiting.
Armed with this approach, Dr. Jeoff helps his patients with chronic and autoimmune treatments, detoxification, hormonal imbalance correction, and even customized sports medicine and nutrition. He’s a wealth of knowledge and I can’t wait to get started!

This episode is brought to you by Four Sigmatic. My kitchen is always stocked with their coffee mushroom blends, their Matcha mix, and their straight mushroom drinks. Four Sigmatic has figured out how to get the benefits of mushrooms like chaga, lions mane, cordyceps and reishi into delicious instant drinks. My current favorite is their adaptogen coffee blend that has tolsi and astragalus. But I love all of their products. They have options with or without caffeine so if you’re not a caffeine person you can find products that you will love. And I find that even their coffee blends that do contain caffeine have less than a normal cup of coffee. But don’t let this fool you. I have found that I get so much more focus and mental clarity from these mushroom blends than I do from regular coffee, and without the jitters. The addition of the mushrooms, which are considered nootropics, meaning that they are good for the brain makes these super food blends more effective and much healthier than just regular old coffee. I love them with a dash of macadamia milk personally. I also love that many of their drink mixes are instant and packaged into individual servings so they are perfect for travel or on the go.
