Suffering from Complex, Chronic, Mysterious Illness?… There is Hope

September 21, 2023

Are you or someone you know suffering from a mysterious, undiagnosed illness?

Have you experienced medical gaslighting?

Then welcome to this message of hope.

Click HERE to watch Cassie describe her 18-year struggle to find a diagnosis and the hope she found at Minnesota Personalized Medicine.

Her story may be your story.

In the video, Cassie talks about the three stages she experienced on her health journey:

  • The Diagnostic Odyssey – Seeing many practitioners looking for answers
  • The Agony of Disbelief – Being dismissed, discounted & denigrated
  • The Joy of Diagnosis – Finding answers & starting on a path to wellness

As you move toward your own Joy of Diagnosis, we recommend you and your physician consider these health categories:

– Hypermobility
– Adverse food reactivity & cross-reactivity
– Dysautonomia & autonomic nervous system dysfunction
– Nutritional & metabolic
– Genomic
– Microbiomic issues (i.e. Intestinal ecology, digestion/absorption, inflammation & products of intestinal ecology)
– Toxicology/toxin exposure & clearance
– Hormonal
– Infectious
– Mast cell activation

We recommend the following introductory resources to help you learn more about these health categories:

Hypermobility: Ehlers-Danlos Society

Adverse food reactivity: Assessment for Adverse Food Reactivity. A Clinician’s Guide

Dysautonomia: Standing Up to POTS, Dysautonomia International or The Dysautonomia Project

Nutritional & metabolic: Nutritional Assessment of the Symptomatic Patient on a Plant-Based Diet: Seven Key Questions

Genomic: Invitae, GeneDx or Variantyx (Multiple genetic testing companies now exist. The choice of testing companies will depend upon one’s goals.)

Mast Cell Activation Syndrome – Dr. Lawrence Afrin Discusses Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS)
