I felt confident I was HEARD, in good hands, and on a "healthy" health journey

My health journey began at 40 with a lot of prayer!! I had no support from my pcp or rheumatologist. Much to my own ignorance, I thought they would support gut health and diet changes for healing. I was very disappointed with blank stares and arrogant smirks. I left their offices in tears. I had never heard of functional medicine. As I joined rheumatoid arthritis/methotrexate facebook groups, I stumbled upon a diet called the Autoimmune Protocol (AIP). Then, I began joining facebook groups for AIP support. From there, I learned what functional medicine is, but I had no idea where to find an FMD. I had tapered myself off all of my medications and cleaned up my diet SIGNIFICANTLY, but I knew that I still needed help. I wanted to do these changes in a healthy way and knew that I didn’t know what I didn’t know!! 

I prayed for guidance to find an FMD. Many friends knew all of the steps that I had taken on this health journey. Through another “God” series of events, I learned about Dr. Beard.

I set up an appointment. After my appointment with Dr. Kinard, I felt confident that I was HEARD, in good hands, and on a “healthy” health journey. My health coach has been phenomenal. It seems like my body defies logic, and I get very frustrated with how weird it seems. But, as Jennifer Pickett has told me, ” You’re at the right place. We are great at weird!” And, they are!

I am so thankful for Dr. Beard and her staff, and I am SOOOO thankful that she is significantly more affordable that many other FMDs.
