You are justified in asking for help. The damage that has been done to your body is reversible. I've even experienced it myself.
I will take the time to help you learn and feel what your body should be doing that will be applied across all areas of your life. I want my patients to be self-aware enough to know when they have a problem they need help with, and self-sufficient enough to push their own envelope to get better daily.
Past movement, nutrient absorption and genetic interplay are the big things that will limit performance, progress and also cause those “unknown etiology” symptoms and conditions. Every single person is different genetically and adapts to environmental stimuli differently. There are only so many diagnoses and peer reviewed scientific research available to the public and is on average 15 years behind.
So I began tackling the nuts and bolts of what makes each human tick the particular way they tick…… and it works. An energy problem, a sleeping problem, reliance on caffeine or prescription medications to control symptoms…. rosacia, indigestion, heartburn, headaches, etc.
Unless you were born with it, you developed it over time. If you developed it over time and you are willing to put in the work and allow for time, anything is possible. Overcoming obstacles is quite common for those willing to put in the time, effort and energy.

This all started with my body breaking down far sooner than I felt appropriate. Constant neck and upper back pain as a college student (when it became bad enough and constant enough for me to note daily pain) and lots of symptoms: daily headaches (6 Excedrin migraines per day coupled with coffee and BC powder), insomnia, ovarian cysts, ulcers, bloating, weight gain, inability to lose weight without extreme measures, extreme fatigue, irritability, anxiety and depression, severe acid reflux (prescription for aciphex at 21)
Fast forward to 30 - I tore my patellar tendon (½ of my one rep max for the lifters and crossfitters) and could not walk without fear of falling on my face - keep in mind my job was to help people move better for a living. I went from working out 5-7 days per week to nothing. Depression and more weight gain. Searched for any solution I could find. Mobilized everything I could think of. Found root of my movement problems that led to the tear (under heavy load for many reps) via a car accident where I shattered my right clavicle at 16 years old. There is a metal plate in there now. Since I was 16, my body has been re-routing movement to compensate for a really really old injury.
I had to develop muscular connections that had fallen dormant due to compensation, and retrain basic movements. This was highly frustrating and felt like the end of the world. I felt like I’d never be able to do anything I wanted to do (snow skiing, surfing, basic walking without pain) and like my life was over at 30.
I have respect for the process now. My biggest weakness is impatience and trusting the process. I now understand that everything takes time. However I can absolutely relate with those who want it last year. This is the delineation between the people who will constantly flip flop between “almost made progress” and those who will “move mountains” and defy expectation.
Slow and steady. Small changes over time.
