Have you ever gone to see your healthcare provider with bothersome symptoms only to be told, “everything looks normal” ? OR – you are offered an antidepressant, sleeping pill, or some other drug? Or maybe you are told, “it’s just part of life.” There is a difference between normal and optimal. If you are not even feeling “normal”, then something is definitely off and you have the right to be heard! Your body has an amazing power to heal itself – but only when you give it what it needs and get to the root cause in a holistic way.
