I felt off. Out of sorts. I had been plagued by headaches that were affecting my sleep. My hormones weren’t right. I was constantly exhausted. After a few months of this, I went to my doctor. He gave me a prescription and some suggestions. The problems did not go away. I thought this was my new normal. Dejected, I began to accept it as fact. There was nothing medicine could do to help me! But, I wanted to know why I was having these problems. What could I do to work with my body to get back on track? I found an article on functional medicine that gave me a little hope. After researching on functional medicine in Baton Rouge, I came across Mint Health. Dr. Buchert offered a different way to address my symptoms. She helped me to investigate into the root cause of my problems and gave me a tailored plan to get my health back. She looked at the whole me, and together we are working towards feeling great again.
Chronically feeling unwell can drain a person of his or her energy and hope, and this is more common than we realize. One in two children are living with a chronic health problem, and many adults are also medicating similar issues. But despite the prescriptions, they still don’t feel great. People not only want to feel better, but they want to actually learn to find some resolution and not be dependent on various medications. And, yes, there is a way!
Mint Health works diligently with their patients to discover the root causes of their health concerns, rather than just trying to cover them up with a procedure or a prescription. This is a different approach than is usually taken in most medical practices, and it is much more effective to protect long term health and maximize wellness.
Education and understanding are the tickets to helping people take control of their health and stay well for the long term. With Mint Health, women of all ages can work with their team on frustrating issues such as PCOS, infertility, chronic stomach issues, allergies, chronic fatigue, resistant weight or metabolic problems, hormone imbalances (both pre and post menopause), and preparing maximal health before getting pregnant.
Change your life and find out how you can optimize your hormones, regain your zest for life, and restore your health, as well as pass better health on to your family.
