Experienced Patients are not medically trained or otherwise professionally qualified in health-related disciplines. They are not permitted to give advice, particularly medical advice, which may be defined as attempting to diagnose, treat or cure an illness or injury. They may only share information on their own experiences and provide moral support.
Patients should not construe anything which an Experienced Patient says or writes as advice, medical or otherwise. By making an appointment with an Experienced Patient, patients are expressly agreeing to this.
Having been chronically ill for 21 years I know the issues that affect the balance of the mind in coming to terms with its continuing limitations. I offer support to those who need a lifeline to hold onto in turbulent waters. The lessons I have learnt through applying Functional Medicine to my health issues have given me an improved emotional strength that I would like to share with those who are just beginning the journey.
