Have you ever hit a wall (enter symptom here) and ran in circles with “normal” labs or medical provider input - and wondered if a Functional Medicine practitioner could get to the root?
So often women ask, “Will I ever feel like myself again? How can I feel at home in my body?” Women are filled with doubt because a doctor told them there is no way to overcome their diagnosis, whether it be of fatigue, overweight, depression, an autoimmune condition, diabetes, PCOS, infertility, or one of the myriad other health problems women face.
If you’ve never heard the term or of this type of care, this is a MUST listen to episode where we have the pleasure of speaking with Women’s Health expert Julie Tebben on the serious state our health care and the role of Functional Medicine. Julie and I met 11 years ago on the trajectory of training for functional medicine, and we share similar views about the need for providers like health coaches and nutrition consultants in supporting women along their health and hormone journey.
Since then, natural medicine has grown in sophistication and this first episode lays the groundwork of removing the fear of stepping outside the conventional medicine network.
Julie and I discuss what to expect as you start to venture seeing a functional medicine practitioner. This epidemic of immunity decline is a slow-motion plague that is sabotaging our hormones, destroying our quality of life, shortening our lifespan, threatening the health of future generations.
Studies reveal percentages of pain, autoimmune issues and stress are significantly higher in women over men. I love Julie’s honesty and humbleness as a practitioner and her love for her clients and their results.
I look forward to sharing future episodes digging into hormones, enrichment for a better libido, nutritional tips for to clean up our gut health, and more!
“85 percent of the risk of chronic disease is environmental, not genetic.”
