There is no doubt that chronic illness is complex and challenging to deal with.

There is no doubt that chronic illness is complex and challenging to deal with. Just ask somebody who has suffered through chronic illness to paint a picture of their health journey.

Imagine seeing 45 different medical practitioners, going through numerous tests, receiving different diagnoses, and being told to go see a psychiatrist because it is all in your head….yet you are suffering debilitating symptoms that completely paralyze your life.   

This is what my guest today had to go through and the reality of many people suffering from chronic illness.

Our healthcare system is wonderful in dealing with acute/emergency conditions but woefully inadequate in dealing with chronic illness.

Luckily, we have people like Scott Forsgren who are at the forefront of helping people understand that there is HOPE. There are strategies, and resources to help us achieve optimum health.

Scott Forsgren, FDN-P, is a health coach, blogger, podcaster, health writer, and advocate. He is the editor and founder of BetterHealthGuy.com. He shares his 21-year journey through the world of Lyme disease, mold illness, and the myriad of factors that chronic illness often entails.

11 Steps for Optimal Health 

Scott has developed an 11-step process through trial and error and consultation with top integrative medicine experts on how to rebuild better health.

One of the most important things that Scott recommends to people suffering from chronic illness is to keep an open mind. Many people miss out on excellent opportunities to improve their health because they don’t want to try out new things nor seek out an alternative opinion outside of what they’ve always known.

A lot of things that I would not have been open to 20 years ago when this whole journey started are the things that I ultimately now have found to be the most beneficial,” said Scott Forsgren. 

Listen in 🎧to Part 1 of this two-part episode as we dive deep into steps 1 to 5 of Forsgren’s 11-step process to give you hope, tools, and resources to deal with chronic illness.
