Have you ever heard the saying: "When you hear hooves, think horses, not zebras"? It's how most doctors are taught to think- to give people the most common diagnoses. That style of analysis works for most people- that's why doctors are taught that way, after all! But what if your body doesn't "behave" like it's supposed to? What if you're actually one of the zebras? If your symptoms don't fit neatly into a box, it is easy to fall through the cracks, and it is distressingly common to be disbelieved or to have your symptoms dismissed as "all in your head".
When I look at your case, I take an extensive history. I want to know how your symptoms fit into your life, how they started, and what your ideas about them are. I consider your diet, lifestyle, constitution, family history and beginning in 2018: your genetics.
Working together we can often uncover lesser-known causes of illness: food sensitivities, hormonal imbalance, dysbiosis, chronic infections (like Lyme, mold, and Epstein Barr Virus), inflammation, nutrient deficiencies, and others.
If you're curious about how I can help, schedule a free, no obligation phone call to discuss your case.
I offer Naturopathic consultations, acupuncture, Bowen therapy, and genetic & laboratory testing when necessary.
