Make Some Noise with Andrea Owen

What can you do when you feel unwell, but all of your medical tests come back normal? According to Dr. Efrat LaMandre (known as Dr. E), if you are healthy from a conventional medicine perspective - great. However, your feeling of unwellness still means something and needs to be addressed. 

Dr. E  is a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) with a Ph.D. in Integrative Medicine who helps people optimize their health, prevent illness, reduce medication, and feel great. Dr. E joins me on the show this week to talk about finding your personal path to wellness whether you are dealing with gut issues, joint pain, fatigue and more. 

Some of the topics we explore include: 

  • The difference between functional medicine and conventional medicine (13:24)
  • It is important to dig deeper and find the root cause (17:29)
  • Why Dr. E says, “Fibromyalgia is not an acceptable diagnosis.” (22:37)
  • Lactose intolerance: what is it, and do you have it or not? (26:21)
  • Why people get worked up over hormonal replacement therapy? (39:23)
