I love that I am seeing articles like these in not only integrative publications, but also in the mainstream wellness community. Functional Medicine, and its science-based approach to helping the body heal itself naturally, is finally being recognized. For me, though, it seems a bit late, because those of us in the field for over a decade, know that it has been in the works for over 30 years!
Still, articles like these help to build foundational knowledge about the field, a step necessary to build trust in my patients. It is part of the process of setting you up for success when you work with me… once you understand what is going on, and why, you are open to learning the how of getting well again!
This is a whole new paradigm in medicine… where you become a partner in your own healthcare… and we work to empower you with knowledge and success so that you can ultimately become your own advocate down the line! You reap what you sow… as they say. Invest in yourself and you will see results!
