Dr. Lissa Rankin, an OB/GYN physician writes:
As a gynecologist, it breaks my heart to see how many women suffer this way when we have so many tools to help them. But they don’t teach you many of these tools in medical school. Before I started practicing integrative medicine, I worked my butt off in a busy managed care practice where I was expected to see 40 patients/day. Trained at high powered academic institutions, I was brainwashed to believe what I was taught and didn’t open my mind to alternatives until I ultimately quit my job because I intuitively knew there was more we could do for women than a traditional medical practice was allowing me to offer.
