Have you ever spent 45 minutes in a doctor’s waiting room, and then 5 minutes with the doctor only to be told that all your labs are normal, and there’s nothing wrong with you?
Well, this was my story too.
When I graduated college, I was 20 lbs overweight (I’m only 5’3”), severely anemic, hypoglycemic, tired, and depressed. I went from doctor to doctor only to be told that all my bloodwork was in range and there was nothing wrong.
I just couldn’t accept that. If I knew anything, I knew there was something wrong. That’s when I started looking outside conventional medicine and found refuge studying under the pioneers of functional medicine. This is also when I started getting better.
Simply put, functional medicine gives you a chance to look at how your body’s core systems are functioning at the root level presently as opposed to focusing (and waiting) on diagnosing a disease only to warrant the proposal of a prescriptive drug, or even worse, surgery.
