These issues are NOT normal, but they are not diseases! They’re a sign that something is wrong inside and nobody has taken the time yet to figure it out.
Nobody did an MRI or blood test on you and said, “there it is…there is the depression.”
Your problems have been diagnosed by symptoms alone.
You are sad, fatigued, unmotivated, uninspired, anxious, nervous, and end up with feelings of hopelessness, helplessness and racing and negative thoughts. You go to your doctor and explain how you feel and they say that you are depressed and, without any testing, they take out a prescription pad and write you a script for an antidepressant or anti-anxiety medication and tell you to give it a try.
You are officially on the medication merry-go-round…trial and error hoping somethings helps with your symptoms. Meanwhile, you still feel down, lethargic, gaining weight and nothing changes. Sound familiar?
Don’t you wish someone had an answer for you?
We do extensive testing, looking at known causative and contributory factors in blood, urine, stool and genetic testing that helps to create a plan to attack the problem, not just treat the symptoms.
