Today on the Chronically Healing Podcast I was fortunate enough to talk to naturopathic doctor, Dr. Lori Bouchard! Lori and I had such a great conversation about natural medicine and how to fit it into your healing team. During our conversation, I dove into my experiences with conventional medicine vs. naturopathic medicine and how it was able to help me move forward in my chronic illness.
This episode is not a space for bashing any type of medicine, but instead a safe space to talk about the importance of having a multidimensional team. Natural medicine, testing and digging into the root cause of your chronic illness is essential in fully healing or just feeling better on the day to day. I’m passionate about finding a functional, integrative and/or naturopathic-trained doctor to see if you feel like you can’t make any headway with how you’re feeling.
I’m so grateful for talking to Lori and learned so much… which I know you will, too!
In today’s episode we chat about:
What is naturopathic medicine and how does it differ from other medicine?
Jessie’s personal experience with naturopathic medicine and how it’s helped her with Hashimoto’s and other chronic issues
The importance of finding a doctor that will take the time to investigate what’s going on in your own personal experience and journey
How Lori specialization in complicated conditions, cancer and those who can’t get answers
The importance of asking the right questions with any practitioner you’re seeing
How Lori’s mom influenced her to look into natural medicine and eventually make it her career
There needs to be a culture change when it comes to our health to stop chronic illness and cancer
Functional medicine testing and how Lori tests right away to see where to focus first
