Addressing Mysterious Illness

I For individuals who have been chronically unwell, been to every doctor and every specialist, and are left with zero answers and labs that always come back as ‘normal’ – I call these cases ‘mysterious illness’ 

addressing mysterious illness

This is a term that has been coined by many in the integrative and functional medicine world. In our office I use it to describe a certain patient, they may sounds familiar to you… It usually goes a little something like this:

“I’ve been to every doctor and every specialist… I’ve been sick for years! My labs are normal and no one can figure out what’s wrong with me. My friends and family are starting to think I’m overdramatic, or that it’s just anxiety, but I know something is wrong.” 

I see a lot of this in our office! Mysterious illness seems to be on the rise, but with our expert clinical experience I have been able to identify and heal those suffering with these undiagnosable conditions.

How I address “Mysterious Illness” at Balanced Healing: 

First, I start with an extremely in-depth consultation which consists of a review of past medical labs, detailed history of the symptom trajectory, going over what you’ve already tried, what’s worked and what hasn’t, exposures to environmental toxins, and present analysis of symptoms. Often times I start with functional labs, for example, a mycotoxin panel or comprehensive stool analysis, that your primary and specialty doctors may have missed.

I implement manual muscle testing (an alternative practice that helps us determine your body’s priorities in addressing your concerns). I use manual muscle testing as a guiding post, not as a diagnostic modality, in order to help come up with the most comprehensive individualized protocol specific to your needs. 

At Balanced Healing of Jacksonville, I know what it’s like to feel like you’ve hit every dead end with your symptoms, but I also know healing is possible and have helped hundreds of clients like you regain their health from mysterious illnesses.
