If you recall, in Part 1 of this blog I delved into the definition of Health and Lifestyle Alchemy – this week I will share with you some first hand experiences I’ve had working with people as an alchemist in the world of healthcare.
You have tried medications, supplements, going from doctor to doctor trying to find answers, and even changing your diet but with little or no lasting results. Symptoms come back, things stop working, and you’re left to survive rather than thrive.
It’s your annual medical exam, and you know the routine - you spend 5-10 minutes with your doctor or the nurse practitioner/physician’s assistant, they weigh you, then measure your blood pressure and body temperature. If you’re lucky, they order a basic lab panel for 10-30 blood markers, which is fewer than half of what you really need for quality insight into your health.
