Dr. Rachel Abrams, M.D. offers a new approach to healing, showing women of all ages how to decode their symptoms so that they create vibrant and lasting health.
Are you tired? Do you suffer from chronic pain—headaches, backaches, or pelvic discomfort? Do you experience depression or feel anxious? Do you have allergies, rashes or autoimmune issues? Have you lost your sex drive somewhere along the way?
If you have one or more of these symptoms, you may be suffering from a condition that Rachel Carlton Abrams, M.D. calls Chronic Body Depletion. The condition can be related to weight gain, high blood pressure, exhaustion, and many other symptoms that leave the body run down.
