Once you see the benefits of functional medicine, there is no turning back.
You are driven to find answers that are going to help people get well. You become consumed with it, learning everything you possibly can. Anyone that practices functional medicine is definitely a lifelong learner.
This passion leads many health practitioners to leave the conventional model of practicing medicine at some point. Just like I did a year ago. There are many reasons why this happens. One of the main reasons, I believe, is to have more time with patients. To hear their story and to provide individualized medicine. To ask why and get to the root cause. To get away from the pill for every ill mentality. This is certainly is as true for me now as it was a year ago. The passion to help others has not waiver.
I always have said there are 4 people in the exam room when you go to see your health practitioner. There is you (the patient), your healthcare provider, the government, and the insurance company. The later too are a necessary part of life, but healthcare today has become more catastrophic care.
You get maybe 5-10 minutes with your provider. Given the increasing insurance premiums and out of pocket costs, what value are you getting? Don’t blame the providers. It is a broken system. Many of us chose to leave the broken system and not take insurance so we can truly practice the art of health and healing. I have so appreciated having reclaimed this time with my patients over the past year since starting my virtual health practice.
If you are frustrated that you are not getting the answers you need, and tired of paying high deductibles and co-pays, I may be able to help. Sadly many put up with “what the insurance will cover” and go through life never getting well, while spending thousands on medical visits and prescription drugs. What if you could invest that money in “health care” and not “sick care” by spending 60-90 minutes with a functional practitioner? What if you could get to the root cause?
