Join Patti Katter and her guests, Boone Cutler and Geoffrey Dardia, as they talk about the book called FPL, which stands for Functional Personal Lifestyle. Boone and Geoff wrote the book FPL for military veterans to help them understand the different wounds and treatments available for those who have been wounded in the war. Don’t miss out on this episode! You’ll surely be touched by how courageous our military veterans are and that they deserve all the support they should receive after surviving the hardships in war.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
· Boone and Geoff’s amazing partnership and how they both inspired each other.
· They wrote the book FPL to empower warfighters to take ownership of their health.
· A fantastic book for warfighters by warfighters, trying to help people stop suffering.
· If you don’t take ownership of your health, you’re never going to get better. The second you do take your health into your own hands, that’s when things change.
· Getting rid of the mentality that military veterans are disabled people.
· The people working in the Task Force Dagger Foundation Health Initiative Program are incredible and they have a very inspiring mission.
· And much more!

About Geoff Dardia and Task Force Dagger:
The Task Force Dagger Foundation Health Initiative Program started with Geoff Dardia, a SOF community member, in 2013.
His story started like many others: he was “banged up” physically, mentally, and emotionally. Facing divorce, medical retirement, deep depression, and suicidal ideation, he refused to accept the standard of care and refused to believe a large portion of his symptoms were “all in [his] head.” About the SOF Health Program.
Geoff sought care outside the conventional medical system. He started a transformational health experience that he later continued with the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine, the flagship clinical care and research facility for the Institute of Functional Medicine. This experience not only showed Geoff what was driving his conditions and causing his symptoms, but it also empowered him to address these root causes and protect himself from exposures inherent to the Military Operational Environment.
Ever since his healing experience in 2013 — in true force multiplier fashion — Geoff has been recruiting diverse professionals and advocates who share his Mission, Purpose & Focus. Their work through the Health Initiatives Program continues to empower others in the community and build the case for taking a Person-Oriented Medical Approach to care for our soldiers and special operators.
