How I Turned My Health Story Around and What That Means for You
When I was in my second year of medical school, I discovered something huge.
I had an autoimmune disorder.
Before I got a diagnosis of Graves' disease, doctors had dismissed it as all being in my head. They attributed my tremors, insomnia, and anxiety attacks to the stress of medical school.
And once I had a diagnosis? The options before me were all harsh medications, a surgical procedure, or radioactive iodine with side effects that didn't seem any better than the symptoms of my disease!
Even when I conceded and took the harsh medications, and ultimately the radioactive iodine that destroyed my thyroid, I knew - in my gut, that there had to be a better way. An approach to health that worked with my body's natural healing ability instead of attacking my body with harsh drugs and invasive surgery.
That's when I discovered the world of functional medicine, I knew I had to help other people in my shoes to connect the dots. There were so many pieces of information on various websites and in different books it was overwhelming to find the answers I needed. I wanted to make it easy to find not only the symptoms of their illness, but the solutions to them.
Functional medicine changed my life, and that's why I created The Myers Way®.
Through my unique solutions-oriented approach, I'm able to empower you to reverse your autoimmune disease. Without keeping you on harsh medications ridden with side-effects. Not only freeing you of your symptoms, but giving you your life back in the process.
