Living your Best Life through Functional Medicine – Dr Libby Wilson

May 1, 2023

Are you living your best life? After a visit to the doctor do you still feel something isn’t quite right? Are you feeling a lack of energy and maybe living in survival mode rather than thriving?

In this episode of the Women Living Well After 50 Podcast, my guest is Dr Libby Wilson an G.P. who decided that there was more to looking after patients than just writing yet another perscription. When her daughter was struggling with an illness that traditional medicine just couldn’t fix, Dr Libby decided to probe deeper and studied Functional Medicine – treating the cause not the symptom.

During the interview we discussed:

Meet Dr Libby Wilson

Dr. Libby is the owner of Best Life Functional Medicine. She works with two groups of patients:

(1) Men and women 40+ who are trying their best to take care of themselves, but despite their best efforts, aren’t seeing the results they’re hoping for. She helps them get beyond the line of fine and

(2) Patients of all ages who aren’t finding answers to their problems in
conventional medicine. She helps them figure out what’s wrong and together
they create a plan to FIX it

She spent 15 years as a family doctor prior to starting her functional medicine practice. While her conventional background provides a good knowledge base, she now combines her functional medicine training and her life coach skills to get to the root cause of what keeps people from feeling vibrant and optimally healthy. She partners with patients to identify imbalances and find solutions through her one-on-one care, online program, and now her best-selling book, The Path of Intention–Five Habits to Optimize Your Health and Create a Life You Love.

    This sounds fantastic Sue – so many of us have chronic conditions (I get headaches and have a long term cough) that aren’t a big deal but are long term and never get sorted. Finding an alternative to standard medical treatment – from a person who has a medical background – sounds like the perfect alternative pathway to explore. I’ll be listening to this today.

      Hi Leanne, I found Dr Libby so easy to chat to but also she had great information. I would love your thoughts if you listen to the recording xx

    So strange that Leanne mentions a long term cough. I have been coughing since October. Not constantly but it is always productive. And I just don’t feel ‘right.’ Have been to my doctor, she’s checked things out and can’t find anything wrong. I will listen to this podcast tomorrow on my walk. Have pinned Dr. Libby’s book. Wish it was available at my library. Thank you, both!!

      I have a cough which really is like asthma – when I’m in a cold place I tend to have a ‘bark’. I hope you enjoy the podcast, Dr Libby was lovely and full of information.x

    I love hearing from you and your comments are important to me
