Working with a good holistic practitioner is essential. Good news is that holistic (whole person) and Functional Medicine (FM) — aka root cause medicine — are becoming more mainstream. In fact the Cleveland Clinic has recently added a Center for Functional Medicine. Unfortunately many of these practitioners do not accept insurance. Please consider how much your condition is costing (and will cost) you physically and emotionally. A skilled practitioner will help you shortcut your path to healing. Below are links to organizations that offer a “Find a Practitioner” link by zip code or country:

The Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM)

International Society of Environmentally Acquired Illness (ISEAI)

Functional Medicine University (FMU)

American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP)
