This article is written by a medical doctor, whose story is much like mine and quite possibly like yours.

Dr. Susan Blum was diagnosed with hypothyroidism, which is usually how autoimmune issues begin, and thought there must be a way to prevent dealing with autoimmune problems lifelong. She set out on a quest to find a way to reverse her issues.  This led her to discover Functional Medicine as a treatment option, and how it is still regular medicine but it gets to the cause of issues, not just treating symptoms.

After learning more about the true causes of autoimmune issues, she was able to use traditional medicine along with a healthier diet to reverse her condition.
