Meet Dr. Aarti Midha, MD(Psychiatry), Functional Medicine Expert USA
Many would think that a doctor’s life easily goes by living without any of the chronic diseases or if their family members are lucky enough to have a doctor at home but that isn’t the truth. Like many of my patients even I have gone through the phases of difficult times. I say this with utmost honesty that I wasn’t spared either with the usual and the unanticipated shortcomings that life has to offer.
My family has had a couple of episodes including me and there came a time where recovery just wasn’t visible but as a practitioner, I kept striving for the success. In that process I encountered things that completely changed my perception and philosophy of wellness and healing for all autoimmune diseases and especially with regards to psychiatry.
I had already given 15 years into conventional medicine but when I got introduced to functional medicine to get the answers that I wasn’t getting while practicing conventional medicine; my professional life took a massive change.
I healed myself and my son from an autoimmune illness through integrative medicine.
We have been often told that recovery from diabetes, thyroid, and from many other diseases isn’t possible. But functional medicine came as a catalyst in my life and shocked me to my core and I finally realised what I should be doing as a medical practitioner and what I shouldn’t be doing.
