Do you think that Functional Medicine can heal or cure you? Do you think it’s a surefire silver bullet that’s guaranteed to reverse any amount of damage to your body? Well, I think it’s high time for a dose of reality for managing patient expectations regarding what Functional Medicine can and can’t do for you.
Don’t get me wrong here, I am a fan of Functional Medicine. But what I see online and hear from readers of my newsletter seems like there are some real misconceptions about how this type of medicine can help you (as well as how long it will take to actually feel better). Managing expectations is important no matter what you do.
Remember, there are no magic pills nor any silver bullets when it comes to your health. The longer you put off seeking help, the longer it may take to get better and somethings may not improve. While Functional Medicine is a beacon of hope for many (including myself), it’s important to keep a realistic view of what it can do so that you don’t inadvertently find yourself disappointed.
