I’m Dr. Crystal Whisler, and unlike many other practitioners out there, I deeply understand your struggle. In my twenties, I developed extreme fatigue and brain fog. I began having headaches every day, insomnia, severe vertigo, gut issues, and eczema. I developed multiple food allergies and even began losing my hair. Eventually, I was diagnosed with IBS, autoimmune hypothyroidism, and chronic fatigue. A few years later, diagnostic testing revealed Lyme disease and re-activated Epstein Barr virus as well.
Saying it took a toll on my performance and daily life is an understatement. I deeply understand the physical and emotional drain of trying to cope with these chronic health issues and the hopelessness and frustration that can ensue.
I personally visited numerous western conventional doctors, many integrative physicians, acupuncturists, herbalists, healers, and more. Surprisingly, none of these specialists were able to help me with my debilitating fatigue and symptoms. I even went to some of the most well-known functional and natural medicine doctors in the country.
What I learned is that even in the functional medicine and natural health world, practitioners were using the same or very similar cookie-cutter protocols, though it’s touted as being based on personalization. They often pushed my body in ways that weren’t right for me or in ways in which it wasn’t ready, creating more symptoms and dysfunction. They didn’t dive deep enough into my unique biochemical imbalances. What works for one doesn’t necessarily work for the next person. Nor did they have a proper understanding of the nuances of healing.
I began taking charge of my own health and putting the pieces of the puzzle together as I knew individualization was the key. I ran lab tests that actually revealed the root causes of my problems, not just the effects of the root causes. Yes, I had Chronic Fatigue, Epstein Barr, and other infections, but why had I lost my resiliency and immune function in the first place? Where did I need to concentrate to heal the body and mind? What had others been missing when I went to them for help? In what order did I need to repair my body?
I answered these questions and made it truly individualized! I used a framework to restore my body’s delicate biochemistry. It was targeted and took many different factors into account – Biochemistry, Environment, Mindset, and Nutrition. This was the key to reviving my health! This is also the framework I now use with my patients. No other system provides such an in-depth and comprehensive approach to support you in restoring your health.
