The Consequences of Overtesting and Overtreatment
How too many functional health tests and supplements caused a setback in Jane’s health journey
When overdone or done unnecessarily, functional health tests can impact patients financially and emotionally. Take Jane—a patient at our clinic who spent over $7,000 in total on treatment with a different doctor only to develop an eating disorder and experience worsening symptoms. In this episode, I break down evidence that explains why adrenal, glucose breath, micronutrient, gut dysbiosis, and food allergy tests didn’t help her case—and why they aren’t always necessary to do for treatment.
I care about answering your questions and sharing my knowledge with you. Leave a comment or connect with me on social media asking any health question you may have and I just might incorporate it into our next listener questions podcast episode just for you!
