After a year and a half of no doctor listening, every doctor minimizing my knowledge about myself and my body, and the only options ever being offered involving drugs I was unwilling to take and invasive procedures I was unwilling to undergo, I found her.
Yes, I found her.
A doctor, a real – live – certified – professional – well respected – published – knowledgeable – MD, who is board certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology AND board certified in Holistic Medicine.
I am here to tell you, it is not an urban myth; this enigma is not like the loch ness monster–rumored to have been sited, but never found. She exists!
And, when I walked into her office, my entire body felt like a deep, long, exhale–even before I met her. All of me knew this was the right place for me; this was the woman who would partner with me to re-awaken my fertile self.
When we take the time to truly know ourselves, to listen to the rhythms of our bodies, and to walk away quickly from those who don’t, our persistence will take us where we most need to be.
I spent an hour, yes that is one full hour, sitting in a bright, warm, comfortable office, with this board certified OBGYN. Listening to her talk about adrenals and explain extreme adrenal fatigue and stress hormone imbalance was like listening to her tell me what the last year and a half has been like for me.
There ARE other ways to heal our bodies that live outside of a prescription pad. There are doctors out there who are passionate about healing women, about restoring fertile health, and about first discovering the underlying cause of our fertility challenges.
Seek them out, don’t give up, don’t settle or accept what doesn’t feel right. Keep looking, never stop, until you walk into a doctor’s office and your whole body feels like a deep exhale. Then, you know you’ve found it.
