Midlife hit me hard! I struggled to get through a day and tried all the remedies touted in magazines and on the Internet to no avail. Symptoms like fatigue, headaches and uneven moods persisted. No matter what I did, I had no energy. I wasn't sleeping well. I didn't feel like myself anymore. I needed to get back on track.
Then I discovered Avera Medical Group Functional Medicine, and it changed my life.
The biggest correction for me was achieved through a personalized hormone replacement program thanks to the compounding pharmacy at Avera. Rather than just taking meds geared toward anyone they formulated meds specific to me. It made a huge difference and I felt like my old self again.
I was encouraged to address all aspects of my health. The program looks at your entire wellness. They see you as a whole person.
I learned that emotional stress can do actual physical damage to your body. I began to carve out time every day to slow down and de-stress.
I took up meditation and yoga, and I enjoy reading, playing piano and walking my dog. All the steps that I took toward better health individually are good - but combined, they added up to the answer. I feel 10 years younger and. I have more energy, I'm back on track thanks to the medical specialists available here!
