Functional Medicine Doctor or Naturopath Needed
Looking for a Functional Medicine doctor or a Naturopath to help me with what i think may be thyroid or peri-menopause issues. I have tried Kaiser, only to be completely dismissed by multiple doctors. I'm seeking a practitioner who will listen and really try to figure out what's going on, someone open to looking at things holistically. A recurring theme I'm reading in online reviews of functional practitioners is that they are VERY expensive ($3-5,000) and require a lot of lab work and supplements - and in many cases the patients didn't feel they were helped after spending all this time and money. I'd like to avoid this (currently unemployed due to COVID), and wondering if there are actually any Functional doctors or Naturopaths who ARE both skilled with female mid-life issues AND affordable? if you have personal experience with one, and are a mid-40's+ woman dealing with similar issues, I'd love to hear from you!
