What they should have said was 'It's all a product of your amazing, yet complicated, brain'!
The brain controls every aspect of our physical and mental health. And, because of this, our physical and mental health is affected when our brain is not working at its optimal potential.
Genetics (physical traits inherited from your parents), diet, environment, medications, and so many other influences play a significant role in your brain's ability to function properly.
Some patients come to my practice after years of feeling like a guinea pig, tried on medication after medication without success.
What if there was a piece of the puzzle that was missing? A vitamin or mineral deficiency that your Provider didn't catch? Possibly even a genetic reason for why your symptoms didn't get better?
I believe these possibilities shouldn't be overlooked.
Your safety is my #1 priority.
I believe you deserve honesty and respect.
I believe it is important to consider your physical, social, economic, and spiritual health throughout my decision-making process.
I believe information is power and you deserve to understand your health, your treatment, and to participate in the decision-making process (it is your body after all)!
