This isn't about me. It's about you. Or at least more accurately, who I am in the context of what you're looking for.
Functional medicine. Alternative medicine. Naturopathic medicine. Conventional medicine. All these labels for different health ideologies floating around. Different philosophies. Different dogma. These are just a framework though, the bare bones. The depth and breadth of experience can vary so widely from one individual to another, both with the same combination of letters following their name, you often don't know what you're getting until it's too late. Or just in time.
My name is Dr. Andrew McParland, ND. It's my hope that you and I will get much better acquainted than we are presently. If you're still reading this it's for a particular reason. You're looking for something. Maybe you've known that all along or maybe you haven't quite put it that way for yourself yet. Regardless of whether you know it or not you've made the first step on a journey. The length may vary, the pace may vary, the difficulty may vary, and the willingness may vary. The only constant is that you have to do it. Now or later. With me or with someone else. Just let me know. I'm ready when you are.
So who am I? The long and short of it is that's a work in progress. Who am I in the context of what you're looking for? I'm part of taking that first step. I'm the result of you saying 'yes'. I'm here to support you doing something for yourself, or for your loved ones. I'm able to reinforce this decision. I can walk with you, forwards, backwards, sideways, whichever way you need to go. But I won't lose sight of the road, just point me in the right direction.
