More from Jon Mitchell’s webiste:
I was halfway through my medical education when it hit me.
Medical school was failing me.
I wanted to help people resolve their chronic health issues, but was instead taught the name it, blame it, tame it, game.
I learned how to put a name to a patient’s symptoms in the form of a diagnosis, blame the disease for how they were feeling, and tame their symptoms with a prescription.
I wasn’t healing my patients, I was managing symptoms.
And when the prescriptions didn’t work, we were taught to send our patients off to a specialist who would play the whole game all over again.
It was soul-sucking.
As someone who questions EVERYTHING, I couldn’t understand how my colleagues didn’t see that we weren’t really healing anyone.
So I began to search out clinicians who were getting amazing results for their patients and I soon discovered Functional Medicine. Functional Medicine works by recognizing that each person is unique and treating them as such. When practiced correctly, Functional Medicine is identifying all of the environmental, nutritional, mindset, and lifestyle factors that contribute to disease and resolving them.
It’s understanding that eating well is only a small piece of the health puzzle and that you cannot expect to feel amazing if you are staying up late staring at your phone, guzzling coffee, and spending your days indoors.
And while it took me a while to find other clinicians who understood this, I finally discovered a world-class mentor who’d been in the field for over 20 years. Through him, I learned how to leverage the body’s innate capacity to heal from all sorts of issues, from fatigue and brain fog, to gut issues and autoimmune conditions, and more.
I’ve come to understand that even though our world is constantly evolving and it feels like it’s hard to keep up with all of the new information and technology, the principles to achieving peak health stay the same.
And I will show you exactly how.
