Would you rather just manage the symptoms of an illness or disease, or would you drill into its root causes so you can fix the underlying factors? 

Joining me today is Dr. Soyona Rafatjah, a board-certified family medicine physician, and the co-founder and medical director of PrimeHealth Denver. PrimeHealth is a functional medicine practice that uses a whole-body approach and advanced diagnostic testing to provide exceptional and individualized care. Treating a variety of conditions, they also specialize in gut health, women’s health, thyroid disorders, and mental health. 

Where Western medicine struggles with – is where they thrive. But that’s not to discredit the role of Western medicine, which is also important. Therefore, a combination of both can be helpful. PrimeHealth is a great place to start if you’re on a budget, but still, need a lot of help and support from a functional standpoint. 

Soyona is passionate about integrative therapies – focusing on nutrition and wellness, meditation, yoga, massage, community support, etc. – things which she found to be a very important part of a person’s healing, as opposed to how medications are causing all these crazy side effects. 

In this episode, you will hear:

  • How she got started in integrative medicine
  • What is integrative medicine
  • Most common root causes of stuffiness 
  • Getting to the bottom of the root causes of your symptoms
  • Why gut health is a huge part of functional medicine
