About kNew Health

kNew Health was founded to address two widespread problems, the rise of chronic disease and the limited access to reliable and effective care options that promote long-term health. Although there are solutions available today, kNew Health is the only company combining the specialized medical approach of Functional Medicine and the ease and affordability of online access. kNew Health’s mission is to revolutionize how we diagnose and promote your health as well as the access and delivery.
Our mission is to provide the best care, and the best guidance, from anywhere.
The founders of kNew Health, through their own health stories have been inspired to create something different and amazing to promote health and address current health issues. We are building kNew Health for you, ourselves, our families and everyone around the world.
kNew Founder James Maskell, author of the paradigm shifting book, The Evolution of Medicine, has spent the past decade sparking debate, shifting paradigms, and working to accelerate the evolution of medicine—starting with the doctors themselves. By empowering conventionally trained doctors, James is encouraging a seismic shift away from an over dependence on conventional medical practices and towards a wellness-centered, functional medicine model, creating not just happier patients—but happier doctors, too.
In 2013 James founded The Evolution of Medicine, a service to educate doctors and practitioners through highly curated and customized resources, tools, products, and services. Its mission, is to make it easier and more affordable for conventional doctors to embark on a new way of managing healthcare. Learn more about James.
To further his mission of revolutionizing the world’s healthcare options, James teamed up with a leader of Functional Medicine, Dr. Jeff Gladd and Drew Little, a seasoned high-tech founder, to create kNew Health in 2017.
WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?
Functional Medicine is a specialized practice of medicine that asks how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual. The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It relies on a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes.
By addressing the root cause, rather than symptoms, practitioners become accustomed to identifying the complexity of disease. They may find one condition has many different causes and, likewise, one cause may result in many different conditions. As a result, Functional Medicine treatment targets the specific manifestations of disease in each individual, resulting in more target-focused treatment.
No longer is the patient seen purely through the lens of a dysfunctional organ system, a disease, or a syndrome, but instead as a person who can be helped on the path to optimal wellness. By evaluating a matrix of fundamental causes in the diagnostic and therapeutic process, we can more accurately understand the roots of pathophysiology, leading to earlier and more effective interventions that not only extend lives but also give patients back years of good living.
