I don’t feel good, but nothing’s wrong with me

 Have you ever felt like this?

 

You aren’t feeling as good as you want. You have some pesky symptoms that disrupt your life. Maybe you aren’t sleeping as well as you used to, you’ve put on some weight, your digestion gives you problems daily. Maybe your cholesterol numbers or blood pressure are rising.

You often don’t feel good, your energy is low and you don’t want to get up and go in the morning. You don’t feel terrible, but not happy, either.

Your body hurts more than it used to, and your allergies are worse than ever. Headaches – well, a few ibuprofen can get rid of those. You begin to notice some anxiety for no reason – that’s not normal for you. What’s that about?

Your periods are a little heavier, or they hurt a little now, or they’re becoming irregular.

Dr. Mayfield is amazing at her craft! I am pharmaceutical free and I feel better and have more energy than I have had in years. She has a true gift in solving your personal puzzle of health and wellness!!!*

You want to feel lively, sleep well and have more joy in your life. Why can’t your doctor help you?

You go to your PCP and say “I don’t feel good, but I’m not sick”. The PCP says you are stressed and need to relax more. Then s/he prescribes a Statin for your cholesterol, tells you to lose some weight and exercise more. A little Flonase for your allergies, and you’re good to go. 

You go to your Ob-Gyn/PCP for your annual exam, and s/he suggests getting on birth control pills or synthetic estrogen or testosterone to regulate your periods. And maybe that might help your headaches, maybe not. Energy and sleep? Well, would you like some Ambien? We checked your thyroid and it’s all ok. Says “you’re working too much”.

You go to a cardiologist to talk about your blood pressure. You hear that you just need to exercise more, and here’s some blood pressure medication that may or may not work for you. And it is guaranteed to make you feel crappy, but your blood pressure might go down. If your doctor is younger, s/he might suggest some Fish Oil.

Who do you talk to about your energy? You insist on thorough blood tests from your PCP or Ob-Gyn. Of course, they are all “normal”. There’s nothing wrong with you. Go home, relax, enjoy your life. And maybe talk to a therapist.

Your therapist says you are depressed and suffering from anxiety disorder. The psychiatrist you are sent to adds in some anti-anxiety medications to your cocktail. Now you gain weight and feel even more lethargic, but you are less anxious.

You go to your chiropractor, who says you need to come in more frequently. Your adjustments aren’t holding, and it could be arthritis, degeneration, or stress.

This is such a common scenario in my clinic. Patients want to know why all of this has happened, not just take a chemical to mask the symptoms or force a blood test to be better. You just want to get healthier and mostly to feel good again. Why aren’t you feeling good?

Dr. Robin Mayfield has been the answer to my prayers. I have had Fibromyalgia for about five years. I was on a roller coaster of pain, from waking up every day with the all-over achiness, to being curled up in writhing pain, and everything in between, but I am now pain-free.

Dr. Mayfield’s approach is a natural one, first with an assessment of your current health. Then she decides which systems need support and where to start…. Dr. Mayfield is a gifted healer and most gentle in spirit. l have felt nothing but love and nurturing, and a true partner in my journey toward my best health and well-being. I feel lifted and hopeful after each session. Don’t miss out on the only practitioner who has made a difference in my Fibromyalgia.*

Everyone has a different path to their symptoms, and each person will have their own solution. But there is always a solution – it may lie in your adrenal glands from stress and trauma in your life, it may lie in your endocrine system as a result of genetics or surgeries, it may be in the immune system, the neurotransmitters, or the digestive tract.

Getting to the root of all of these symptoms is what I love, and what I’m good at. 

One of the reasons I’m successful at what I do is because I love to solve puzzles. Because of this, my expertise lies in getting to the root of your symptoms. Your story is unique in how you got to where you are today, and diagnosing is my best skill.

While your problems might feel overwhelming and unfixable, the key is breaking it down into smaller, fixable segments of health. We’ll become a team and approach your rebuilding vitality brick by brick.

Dr. Robin Mayfield, Austin’s finest holistic health doctor can help you feel better, regain your energy and enjoy your life again.
