Getting a diagnosis is a key and often essential step in our health care system. It can give clarity, help chart the course for treatment, and give insurance a code for billing. What a diagnosis tells you though isn’t the complete picture…
Do you know why Hashimoto’s is called Hashimoto’s? Why Alzheimer’s is called Alzheimer’s?
Those were the names of the doctors who discovered and classified those sets of symptoms and gave them a name… their own.
Do you know why its called bronchitis? Pancreatitis? Laryngitis?
“itis” means inflammation of the…
…whatever it is.
All those names are telling you is what body part is inflamed.
Does it tell you why?
Now I’m not a doctor. I can’t diagnose these things.
But there’s something I can do that your doctor can’t…
I can help you figure out why the dynamics at play in your body are happening and help you change them.
Our Western approach to medicine needs a diagnosis to be able to prescribe and then insurance.
What most conventional docs are not trained to do is to put the pieces together to figure out why it’s happening in the first place.
It’s the business of name it blame it tame it.
Which we DO need. Medication to stabilize a situation, get relief, so you can do something about it is a god send.
You need both.
You need, what’s come to be known as “conventional” medicine to help manage the condition.
And you need a functional medicine approach to help you untangle it and restore the body to proper functioning so you can get on with your life.
This is what we do here at No Rules Nourishment through functional health coaching.
I take a functional approach and combine it with health coaching (read: support and accountability — the things most of us need to make real, lasting change).

P.S. If you’re struggling with a health issue, are frustrated with a lack of answers from your doctor, or have just been given medications without much else, the functional medicine approach may be the missing link that can help you get to the bottom of what’s going on so you can regain your health.
