What Is Functional Medicine?
What does your gut health have to do with chronic disease, chronic pain, and chronic fatigue? EVERYTHING! A toxic and leaky gut will pass along everything to your small intestine, liver, and kidneys. Your blood circulates throughout your entire body, remember?! If your GI lining becomes permeable, the toxins we ingest everyday, and the byproducts of chemical reactions in our body leak out into our blood system and cause some of the most common symptoms I see in my practice-fatigue, muscular aches and pain, skin rash, acne, migraine, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain just to name a few. And waking up one morning and deciding, today is the day I am going to be health, just isn't going to be the magic pill, unfortunately. We have foundational work to do, we have to heal the gut, prime your liver and kidney to tolerate a detox, and get your entire body to work together and excrete those toxins, all BEFORE you can start feeling well again. If you are ready to truly feel better again, please don't wait any longer! Today can be the day we start healing your body, the right way!
