How to Find Balance in Functional Medicine

Share This:

I wanted to go through some 2020 impacts that will make a massive difference for you. 

There are certain challenges we see in functional medicine that if you don’t get them right, it becomes very, very difficult. 

We asked a question in our group the other day – “What made you decide to join the FMFT program?”

Now, these practitioners we support are very committed and very decisive. The immediate answer from them was…Because you’ve simplified it down

It was such a massive few words because functional medicine is awesome, but there’s so few functional medicine practitioners that get it right. 

What I mean by that is, it’s about keeping the balance to create that impact for our patients, making sure that your lifestyle is giving you energy, and being happy with your income (ideally with no ceiling on your income). 

When you have that balance, that’s what we define as “getting it right”. 

So, what we heard from those practitioners in the program is the simplification and bringing systems into place. It’s so fundamental to getting things right.

One of the things we see most, time and time again, is functional medicine practitioners who have been in the game for 3, 5, 10, 25 years, but they’re not getting the income they wanted and they’re completely burnt out. They have all the skills but can’t bring all the systems together for a process that is sustainable long-term.

One of the biggest problems that we see is we take this paradigm from conventional medicine and we try to put it into functional medicine. And that just simply doesn’t work. 

One of the big paradigms as a practitioner is you think that you’re paid for your time. If you stick with that, that’s where things go wrong. What you have to realize in functional medicine is you should be paid for getting a solution. Once you understand this, then you can begin to bring the systems together, and then it becomes so much easier. 

In this video, I'm discussing:

  • The importance of attracting the right patients, committed to their goals, using a simple system called ACD.
  • Why a constant connection and support throughout the process is so important to delivering on your promise to patients.
  • Why functional medicine doesn’t have to take a long time to integrate, but it does need systems in place to work.
If this intrigues you, then go over to our website and have a look at our webinar. This will be able to explain things in more detail and break things down for you, so that you’re able to understand the processes that are needed to succeed.
