My Story: How Pregnancy Struggles Helped Me Reclaim My Health

Many of us practicing functional medicine have a personal health story that brought us here. My story became most apparent after pregnancy complications and recurrent miscarriage helped me to uncover underlying health issues associated with gut infections, food sensitivities, hypothyroidism and environmental toxins. I share my very personal experience because I want people who are struggling to know that there is hope. I want my patients to know that I can relate to what they are going through much of the time. I’ve been through a lot with my health – truly this story is just the beginning – and while it was a challenge, I’m thankful for the experience because it has made me a better physician.
