#1 I’ve tried “everything”.
This is a phrase that we hear over and over on our consultation calls. Many patients feel like they’ve done everything that they can to get better. However, within a few short minutes it becomes clear that there are many stones still unturned. When a person submits to the thought of having “tried everything” they subconsciously submit to the idea that nothing more can be done.
#2 “If this worked, my doctor would know about it.”
#3 “I don’t have time”
#4 “Functional Medicine is expensive”
This is the biggest misconception about functional medicine – primarily because we’ve been conditioned to expect insurance to pay for everything. In doing so, we have unwittingly ceded control of our wellness over to the lowest bidder – at the expense of our own health. In reality, functional medicine is the most affordable form of healthcare on the planet, especially when you consider that the average person spends more money in their lifetime in the allopathic model managing a disease or illness without ever truly healing.
