Dr. Amy Beard shares her Functional Medicine journey as a patient. When conventional medicine failed her, a Functional Medicine approach changed her life.
Amy’s Functional Medicine Journey
I was not your traditional medical school student. I was in my early 30s during medical school. (My classmates referred to me as “Nana”). I worked as a Registered Dietitian for several years prior to attending medical school. I have always known that our lifestyle choices and environment play huge roles in our overall health. Inflammatory diets devoid of nutrients, too little or too much physical activity, chronic stress, lack of sleep, high toxin burdens, etc. are major contributors to chronic disease. Unfortunately, these things were barely covered, and outright neglected, during my medical school education and residency training.
