In today’s episode we take a look at what functional medicine is and discuss how this approach differs from conventional medical practice of relying heavily on prescriptions to treat symptoms. This approach of multiple prescriptions, while sometimes helpful in triage, sometimes create other secondary problems that can be as debilitating as the original symptoms.

Topics covered:

Functional medicine to address symptoms such as fatigue, brain fog, neuropathy, insomnia that often are created by traditional breast cancer treatments

Important differences between traditional and functional medicine practitioners in using lab work to identify issues and develop a long term treatment plan

The podcast dedicated to the real life issues for women facing recovery from breast cancer.
