Unexpected Ways to Deal with Medical Gaslighting, Biotoxins & Trauma

Jill Carnahan, M.D.

How to heal from toxic illness and relationships, cultivate emotional strength, and nurture your faith in the aftermath of unexpected traumas.


In this Episode of The Human Upgrade™...

… you’ll learn how Functional Medicine expert Jill Carnahan, M.D., who is board certified in Family Medicine and Integrative Holistic Medicine, survived breast cancer, Crohn’s disease, and toxic mold. Her unique healing approach looks to science for answers while also using methods that outright challenge conventional medicine.

During the discussion, Dr. Carnahan distinguishes between visible (e.g., cancer) and invisible (e.g., mold toxicity) illnesses. “There’s this new term called medical gaslighting where doctors actually say, “Oh, everything looks great,” right? And you’re not. You’re not okay inside,” she says. 

Her new book, “Unexpected: Finding Resilience through Functional Medicine, Science, and Faith,” explores “positive transformation against all odds.” She shares her own story of confronting life-altering illnesses, fighting for her health, and overcoming sickness using both science and faith. She also shares the experiences of her patients who transformed their health and their lives.

Dr. Carnahan approaches healing complex and chronic illnesses in ways that:

  • rely on both scientific and holistic options,
  • bridges science with meaning and connection,
  • shore up resilience, and
  • include deep faith and love.

She also encourages women to trust their intuition more. She admits that she didn’t trust her intuition in the past and that if she had, she would have known that something was dangerous and unhealthy in her failed marriage.

This episode and Dr. Carnahan’s new book provide a candid account of her own challenges in dealing with life-threatening illnesses, living with autoimmunity and mold toxicity, attempting to save failed relationships and the harsh realities of working within a medical system that doesn’t tolerate thinking outside the box. 

Get ready to learn about a new path of empowerment where you can take control of your own health and well-being.
