Your Longevity Blueprint and Thyroid Health with Dr. Stephanie Gray
“There’s no pill, potion, or powder that’s going to replace positive lifestyle changes.” – Dr. Stephanie Gray
Dr. Stephanie Gray is a functional medicine provider who helps men and women build sustainable and optimal health and longevity so that they can focus on what matters most to them.
While going through a health crisis of her own, Dr. Stephanie recognized how overwhelming the options available through functional medicine could be. To solve this problem, she decided that patients needed a functional medicine blueprint to help them navigate the challenges that conventional medicine couldn’t address.
In Your Longevity Blueprint, Dr. Stephanie describes how your organs and body systems work together to build your longevity, using the analogy of building a home. She believes you need a blueprint to ensure every body system is addressed to have a long and healthy life.
In this conversation, Dr. Stephanie and I discuss how a personal health challenge fed her passion for functional medicine, the big difference between functional and conventional medicine, how Your Longevity Blueprint can empower you to overcome health challenges and rebuild your health, what you need to know about hormone replacement therapy, and more. Enjoy the episode!
