What should you do when doctors can’t diagnose you?
Sometimes symptoms show up that seem to have no rhyme or reason.
You’re exhausted, your stomach is a mess, and maybe you’re having headaches, skin rashes, or weird sensations.
Or maybe your body just feels “off.”
The real trouble starts when you go to the doctor to find out what’s wrong, only to be told that your blood tests are normal. So, you’re left to try different medications or therapies with no guarantee of success. It can feel like a guessing game, where each treatment is a roll of the dice.
Please know that your doctor truly does want to help you.
It’s just that they’re working within an insurance-based system that was never designed to address the real underlying reasons for sickness.
The mainstream medical system can work very well for conditions that have very specific or direct causes, but most people have multiple imbalances brewing beneath the surface.
These so-called “functional” imbalances can be very subtle.
They aren’t things that traditional doctors look for, and most of them won’t even be detected through regular medical testing.
Examples of functional imbalances include:
- Sneaky infections
- Imbalances in your gut microbes
- Low stomach acid and weak digestive enzymes
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Out-of-sync circadian rhythms
- Unresolved trauma
- Toxic environmental exposures
- Mitochondrial dysfunction
- Side effects of current or past medications
It’s also possible that you have a more common or widely-recognized medical condition, but nobody has done the proper workup for you to arrive at the right diagnosis.
We see this all the time, where a patient has been from doctor to doctor, including specialists, but none of them considered the full myriad of diagnoses that could be causing your symptoms.
At Attune, we play detective.
Not only do we explore all of your possible diagnoses, we take it a step further and figure out what is causing that condition in your body so that we can remove those triggers at the root- cause level.
A Path Forward
If you’ve got “unexplained” symptoms that nobody can seem to figure out, and you want help getting to the bottom of what’s REALLY causing them, we offer our 8-week Body Bliss program to help with that.
In Body Bliss, we’ll start with a comprehensive self-assessment (and the option to order a specialized lab test for yourself) to figure out your main problem areas and reveal the specific triggers and functional imbalances that have been missed.
Then we’ll work on supporting the non-negotiable foundations of your health – like mindset, sleep, gut health and nutrition – so that your body is properly positioned to heal.
From there, we’ll recommend the most effective supplements, botanicals and lifestyle strategies for symptom relief and helping your body come back into balance.
We also offer private 6-month and 12-month Health Transformation Programs where you’ll work with us one-on-one to figure out your unique symptom triggers and get a clear diagnosis — leaving no stone unturned.
Both of our programs use our 3-step healing framework called “Flourish” that elegantly supports your body’s own self-healing mechanisms.
When we support our patients using this framework, many of them start to notice things like better energy and easier digestion within a couple of weeks, with deeper levels of healing that follow.
So when doctors can’t diagnose you, and you’re looking for a “medically unexplained symptoms” clinic, Attune is the place to go.
We are experts at figuring out mystery symptoms and undiagnosed conditions. You don’t have to live without answers.
