Functional medicine is providing relief for some people with chronic illnesses. With this alternative approach, physicians look at the patient as a whole, taking in factors like diet and stress, in an attempt to find the root causes of disease.
In this episode, Linda talks with Dr. Karima Hirani who switched from practicing conventional to functional medicine 20 years ago due to frustration about not being able to provide patients with enough answers and solutions. Dr. Hirani shares how she treats patients suffering from several on-going illnesses, including depression, anxiety, chronic fatigue and a host of digestive ailments as well as the strides functional medicine is making with autistic children.
We also hear from a woman who says functional medicine changed her life. Maryam Henein says it helped her to finally heal after a life threatening accident, ultimately inspiring her to found her alternative medicine/health & wellness website Honey Colony.
