Susan knew she wasn’t crazy. Although she hadn’t felt like herself for a while, she knew her symptoms weren’t made up. She couldn’t figure out why she was so tired and moody seemingly all the time. After all, she always took care of herself and enjoyed being active at age 51. Now, getting a good night’s sleep is almost impossible. At times she even feels depressed.
Her symptoms are starting to affect her relationship with her kids, her husband, and friends. Little things that never used to bother her now seem like huge events. An accomplished professional, she experiences “brain fog” at work. And her diminished libido . . . well that’s a new one. Sometimes she feels like she could “lose it” at any moment.
Her primary care doctor ran a battery of tests, including for low thyroid, but her results came back “normal”. The advice of “you’re just getting older” doesn’t sit well with her. Her PCP even prescribed anti-depressants and sleeping pills for Susan. That’s when she decided to take control of her health. Susan isn’t someone who just wants to “take another pill” to treat symptoms. She wants to get to the bottom of her issues.
She was always curious about alternative health treatments. She'd heard about "integrative medicine" but wasn't sure what it entailed. She suspects that traditional medicine doesn’t always have all the answers. Susan values her health immensely.
She’s spent so much time taking care of others and now it’s time to take care of herself.
Susan, we look forward to meeting you!
