“During some of these conversations, the rigid doctor-patient divide fell away and I felt a human connection. In the best conversations, there were two adults in the room who respected on another. One, the doctor, had a wealth of knowledge about bodies in general and the other, me, had a wealth of information about one specific body: mine.” via It Took 12 Doctors to Solve the Mystery of My Tingling Fingers.
This tragic story (with a happy ending) is one I find replayed over and over in my office. For this woman, it was non-Celiac gluten sensitivity misdiagnosed as Multiple Sclerosis.
So many people are misdiagnosed, not diagnosed at all, told to “live with it”, told “get psychological help”, told “what do you expect at your age?” because their caregivers did not ask the right questions, or did not take their patient’s concerns seriously.
This is the reason my Initial Consultation is 3 hours. I want to – I need to – gather a LOT of information from you in order to give you the most comprehensive guidance and care.
You don’t have to live with it. You are designed to heal. All you need is the right guidance, information, and support. That’s what I’m here for.
I am a really good “health detective”.
I have so many clients who found answers and reclaimed their health after seeing multiple specialists, sometimes from all over the country and including celebrated clinics.
In an Initial Consultation, I will take a very thorough history (health, nutrition, medical, emotional, lifestyle, activity, stress level, sleep, family, etc), and review blood work, then do my very extensive “detective work”, which includes looking at food sensitivities, environmental issues, and any underlying microbial problems, and finally, I will customize a program for you, including nutrition and supplements.
You will leave your first session with a good idea of what is going on, and how to get started feeling better.
There is no more important investment than health and vitality. They make everything else possible.
If you need help or have further questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. It would be a pleasure and a privilege to support you in achieving – and even surpassing – your goals.
