Do you ever get frustrated when you visit the doctor? It can be, especially when you’re uncomfortable and in pain. This is because doctors are good at looking at the symptoms instead of the root cause of the pain.
Most doctors want to either prescribe you pills or offer you surgery to stop the pain. This leads you back to the same pain months later.
But is there an alternative to this?
The good news is that a new wave of medicine called functional medicine is helping people get to the root cause of their pain, instead of putting a band-aid on the symptom.
In this episode, we are joined by Dr. Caplan, a chiropractor to discuss the revolution of healing using functional medicine to keep you healthy.
