Healing Myself Empowered Me to Help You
My journey as a doctor began with my desire to serve humanity. My path began to shift because of my own unexpected health issues. Upon returning from post 9.11 service in the Middle East as an Air Force Flight Surgeon, I developed a host of vague and often baffling symptoms. Honestly, I just chalked it up to being tired and having dry skin from being in the desert. How good was I supposed to feel anyway? When my military service was complete, I returned to medical training in radiology residency and then specialty fellowship. During this time my symptoms worsened and I was diagnosed with autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto’s) and then thyroid cancer. CANCER?!! Traumatic, yes but I felt I had an answer. Naturally, I pursued traditional medicine. However, despite taking thyroid medication, exercising, resting, and eating what I thought was good healthy food; my new normal was plagued with fatigue, memory loss, and an expanding waist line to name a few. Now a young practicing physician, I came to accept that traditional medicine alone would not cure me and I turned to holistic methods. Finally finding an amazing naturopath who not only believed she could help me, but was able to explain what was happening gave me great hope. I shed tears of relief. Hence my introduction to Functional Medicine and holistic health and nutrition.
Through the process of my own healing I was inspired to learn more. I knew holistic health would be at the core of my personal practice. We often look to those who have traveled the path before us. I’ve made the journey, so let me be your guide!
