Midlife has many struggles - older children, empty nest, career goals, relationships with loved ones - being worn out makes these challenges feel harder than they have to be.
Feel energetic, sharp, and focused.
Your mojo - your zest for life - is back.
Sleep is deep and refreshing.
With over 25 yeas of Primary Care practice, the last several years seeing health through the lens of Functional Medicine, as well as my own midlife struggles, I know how frustrating and difficult it is to feel and be your best .
To do that, you need a solution to this changing state of midlife and how it is affecting you.
The problem is how you have managed it in the past, and the experts you have consulted have failed you, which makes you feel frustrated and probably a bit hopeless.
I understand how hard it is to find your way through the overwhelm and confusion of what to do - which is why I use Functional Medicine where we resolve the root cause of imbalances, not just the symptoms - to find the right remedy for your challenges.
Functional Medicine wants to know what is behind what you are experiencing. It wants to know the "why" behind the symptoms and puts it into a framework of clinical imbalances reflecting the body's biological systems.
It looks for the "why" behind how you feel and seeks answers in a whole person, holistic way. The many connections and approaches to wellness are examined and honored. The body, mind, and spirit are essential but also key to wellness a person's community, their sense of purpose. Functional Medicine, I believe, will soon be the lens we use to approach a person's health and wellbeing.
Conventional medicine operates at its best in acute care: accidents, heart attacks, strokes, infections. And does it very effectively. However, most people have chronic issues such as heartburn, constipation, thyroid, arthritis, hypertension, diabetes, and allergies. Or, they just are not feeling their best and don't indeed have a "diagnosis" of a condition: they're tired, not sleeping well, more irritable than usual, they crave or eat regularly processed foods, or they just have much energy to do the things they want.
Conventional medicine approaches sickness as a set of symptoms that get put in buckets, each bucket labeled a disease or condition. Typically, we manage these diseases and conditions by finding a drug that minimizes the symptoms, so you feel better. However, usually, no plan is made to "end" their use, and disappointingly, the side effects can be just as harmful as the condition it is supposed to improve.
