Ask a Mindful Man: James Maskell – Parsley Member and Founder of The Functional Forum

March 1, 2019

James Maskell has been looking for levers to create significant positive change in healthcare for a decade.

He co-founded the Functional Forum, NYC’s biggest monthly meetup for functional and integrative health professionals who are passionate about the evolution of medicine. James Maskell’s conference brings together the industry’s leading innovators and covers the latest in heath news, functional medicine research, practise development and health technology.

At his TEDx Talk in Guernsey last year, James said “Community, not medicine, creates health”.  James talked about the close correlation between positive health outcomes and a strong sense of community in areas like the blue zones where people live longer and have lower incidence of chronic disease.  “They eat together, they cook together, they play together and they pray together”.

Parsley’s membership model is designed to create a community around health.  We believe that expert support from a healthcare team and ongoing access to a wellness community is what makes us different. We’re lucky to have James as a Parsley member and a global advocate for holistic, high-tech community-backed health care.

Robin recently appeared on James’ Evomed podcast to talk about Crushing the Functional Medicine Membership Model.  Listen to it here.

James answered our 6 short Mindful Man questions:

1. Hey Man, what’s you mantra lately?

“Are you a sheep or a sheepdog?”

2. Did you sleep okay last night? What do you do when you can’t sleep?

When I can’t sleep I get up and write.

3. Any sweet vacation plans coming up? 

I’m currently on a 9 week worldwide trip with my family. LA – Vegas – Phoenix – San Diego – Necker Island – London – Stuttgart – Berlin – NYC – Mexico City – San Miguel de Allende – LA.

4. The most important thing your mother taught you? 

“The truth will out”.

5. We have a kitchen at Parsley – when you come over what will you make us?

Crepes (gluten free if you insist).

6. What do you look for in a doctor?

Less than a 17 year gap between new science and practice, hopefully more like 17 days. Someone who makes it easier to take healthy steps.


Want a better doctor? We’re it.
