Dr. Jill is a board-certified Integrative Holistic Medicine specialist, known as Your Functional Medicine Expert® and often referred to as “The Sherlock Holmes of Medicine,” for solving medical mysteries. She uses state-of-the-art lab testing and biochemical analysis; she helps patients identify the root causes of their illness by identifying nutritional or metabolic imbalances; and then she uses nutritional protocols, supplements, and lifestyle changes to improve function, always seeking the gentlest way to restore health and optimize function.
In this episode we discuss Dr. Jill’s powerful healing stories from multiple health challenges including breast cancer, Crohn’s, celiac, and Hashimoto’s, and finally, mold illness. Her new book, Unexpected, is part autobiography and part prescriptive wisdom from her many years as both patient and practitioner. I loved it and encourage you to read it too.
