Wellness Pearls from Dr. McMinn
My Favorite Patient- The Woman with “Total Body Funk”
I generally don’t like to play favorites. However, over the years my favorite patient has become the exact same patient that other doctors hate to see. It’s the lady with profound fatigue, brain fog, low mood, can’t sleep, hot flashes, night sweats, aches all over, and no libido. This common condition, that afflicts so may women, has a profound impact on a woman’s life. She cannot be the person she wants to be, the wife she longs to be, or the mother that she needs to be. My eyes light up when these women come into my office, because I know that I can fix them. I look forward to the day when they come back in and everything is better. The transformation is life altering. They commonly say “thank you for giving me my life back,” and their husbands say “Thank you for giving me my wife back.” The solution is not simple. It has to be customized to each patient, and then the patient has to do her part by following the recipe. However, at the end of the day, nine times out of ten it works. As a provider it brings me great joy to see her transformation into her new, energetic, life-loving, vibrant, joyous, sexy self again.
