Dealing with frustrating mystery symptoms with no clear diagnosis? 

It happens to so many of us. 

The average woman sees 4 to 6 doctors before the correct diagnosis is made. And this unfortunately can take years of suffering for some. 

That’s why Dr. Sara Szal Gottfried joins me again today to help YOU take charge of your symptoms for good, and find the answers you deserve. 

In this podcast, we address how trauma presents in the body and impacts your immune system– leading to autoimmune diseases. 

But don’t worry, you’ll get the tools you need to understand your trauma response, what labs to always check for, and simple lifestyle tips you can incorporate every day to help you feel your best.
