Meet Kyrin Dunston MD
With a successful career in the medical field, family vacations, a house in a gated community, new cars and a beautiful growing family, from the outside I looked like I had it all. But on the inside, I was dying. Any spare hour I had was spent sleeping. I was tired, overweight, and my hair was falling out. I was depressed, anxious, and lacked self-confidence. I had stomach issues and low libido.
I felt broken, defective, frustrated, and like a complete failure. As a doctor, I was giving out advice to my patients for their health problems when I couldn’t even solve my own. Nothing I tried worked, and I didn’t know where else to turn. All the knowledge I’d learned in medical school was failing me and many of my patients as well. I was losing hope.
Then one day a patient with all the typical health problems came in to my GYN practice. I prescribed her the usual protocol and didn’t see her again until a full year later. When she returned, she was like another person. It was clear to me that her health had improved unlike many of my other patients who went on year after year just as sick as the first day I saw them.
I asked her what she did, and her answer surprised me. She said she decided not to take the medication I prescribed her, and instead she looked into ways she could solve her problems naturally. She began taking some herbs and vitamin supplements, and her symptoms disappeared, her energy returned, and she looked so full of life. I knew I had to learn more about what she was doing.
On a Saturday morning after meeting with this patient, I finally began my research into functional medicine, and for the first time in a long time, I felt hope. I knew what I was reading was truth. Treating the body as a whole and finding a root cause to health problems rather than just treating the symptoms made sense. The science was undeniable. I had to try this out for myself.
Starting with my own health, I began to learn functional medicine first hand by running my own hormone and thyroid tests at home. I quickly discovered that I had thyroid, progesterone, and low cortisol issues, so I began to address them with herbs, vitamins, and supplements. I later did stool testing to find out what was causing all my stomach issues. After my results came back, I was able to pinpoint the best diet for my digestive system. I took the next steps making appropriate diet changes, and the pounds began melting off, my energy came back, and my self-confidence returned.
My patients noticed the changes in me and began to ask what I had done. That was when I knew I couldn’t continue running my practice the same way I always had. The results I’d experienced through functional medicine were revolutionary compared to anything I’d ever seen or experienced within the conventional medical system. Long story short, I closed my GYN practice and opened a functional medicine practice so I could help my patients achieve the same radical results I had.
It wasn’t long before people from all over the country wanted to work with me, so I decided to take my practice to the web so I could work with my patients virtually and in a way that is convenient for them. That is when Her Brilliant Health was born.
Are you ready to experience the brilliant health you deserve?
