Today we share a new podcast from the series “The Doctor’s Farmacy” with Mark Hyman, M.D.
During this podcast, Dr. Hyman speaks with Dr. Cynthia Li on her relationship between practicing medicine and her personal journey with an autoimmunie disease. Dr. Li discusses how being a physician has helped her re-imagine her illness and utilize functional medicine to treat her health challenges.
“Think about how different our medical system would be if all doctors were required to have an extreme health crisis before practicing medicine. It’s through those toughest times with our own health that many of us turn to Functional Medicine, as we realize conventional care isn’t getting us what we need. But sometimes, being so involved in treating others’ diseases makes it difficult for doctors to even see our own symptoms for what they really are.” – Dr. Mark Hyman
Both Jeff and I have made powerful improvements to our own health concerns with a functional approach, and every other functional doctor we know has, too. This is often the kind of approach that is best understood by living it first, then our minds can wrap themselves around the new paradigm of health care that this model truly provides. We hope you enjoy this podcast, and we look forward to connecting with you on your health journey.
