Perhaps you’ve gone to multiple doctors to get help with your symptoms and no one has been able to explain what’s going on or why you’re feeling the way you’re feeling.
Maybe you’ve been told this is a “normal part of aging” and there’s not much you can do except go on prescription drugs.
Maybe you’re suffering from skin trouble, exhaustion, pain, or bloating after everything you eat. You’ve had these symptoms for a while, and nothing you’ve tried has really helped.
You may have already been diagnosed with a specific medical condition, or maybe you’re just annoyed that none of your doctors have been able to make sense of your symptoms and tell you what’s wrong. You might be feeling hopeless and wondering if you’ll ever figure things out and be “normal” again.
I’ve been in your shoes, and I know how scary it is when you don’t quite understand what’s going on with your body. It’s also really frustrating when you seek help from medical professionals who are supposed to have answers for you, only to be told that “you’re fine.”
You know something is wrong. You know your body better than anyone, and you want answers.
Maybe you’re like Lisa who felt tired all day. Her brain felt fuzzy like a cloud was hanging around, and she had a hard time finding her keys or remembering the little details like what was next on her calendar.
But she had to keep going, she’s has kids and a full-time job. Caffeine was her crutch during the day, and a few glasses of wine in the evening helped take the edge off when she got home.
Her anxiety caught her off guard at the worst times such as when she was about the go to an important work dinner. It also flared up her IBS (how could she leave the house?) and added to her reflux (how could she leave the house without a bunch of Tums?).
She was tired of taking her Prilosec for reflux, Lipitor for cholesterol, Zoloft for anxiety/depression, and Zyrtec for her allergies.
She tried an elimination diet and bought vitamins, a probiotic, and even threw some spirulina in her morning smoothie. She was eating pretty darn healthy. She didn’t even have Diet Coke in her house anymore.
Her doctor told her she was working too hard and needed to relax. He told her to eat more protein for her brain and take some fish oil. He said to keep taking her PPI’s and even drew some blood.
All labs came back normal except for a low Vitamin D.
She knew something was wrong with her and he wasn’t finding it; something was “off.” This wasn’t how she used to be. She felt so darn frustrated with her health and confused as to what to do. Was this her new normal? Was this just part of growing older?
I’m here to tell you that this is NOT normal.
It doesn’t have to be part of getting older.
And Lisa can tell you that she now feels better than she did in your 30’s.
