Sick and tired of being sick and tired? Done with a doctor dismissing your symptoms away after not even giving you the time of day? Our health care system is broken.  It is a system based solely on sick care; not health care.   Doctors are forced to treat parts and pieces of the body without looking at the entire system.   Care is focused on addressing the symptom without investigating the root cause of WHY the symptom is happening. Treatment options focus on expensive medications and surgeries.  Little thought is given to disease prevention and lifestyle medicine.  The current sick care system benefits when you stay sick! Does this resonate with you? Do you find yourself frustrated because you can't get the help you need from your doctor? There is hope!

Listen to a doctor's perspective on what is wrong with our health care system and learn about a positive solution found in Functional Medicine. Join me as I have a candid conversation with Dr. Carol Villanueva, a board-certified Internal Medicine physician who has a passion for using functional and lifestyle medicine to address the root cause of chronic disease. 

Remember, if you are looking for support and you need a health coach to help you tackle the obstacles that you keep running into time and time again...I've got your back! A client recently referred to our coaching sessions as "a breath of fresh air!" Consider a virtual, one hour session for a health strategy personalized just for you.  Check availability at  and I'm looking forward to meeting with you soon!
