S2 Ep10. How to Cope with Pandemic Burnout: Advice from Functional Medicine Investigator Dr. Christina Carew
If you’re feeling empty, done, or burned out, you’re not alone. Burnout is real and more prevalent now than ever before. We chat with Naturopathic Doctor, Founder of HealingMe, and Functional Medicine Investigator Dr. Christina Carew. She shares typical signs of burnout. Dr. Christina also explains how we can shift the way we think to deliver a better tomorrow instead of lingering in the struggles of today.
Dr. Christina Carew is a functional medical investigator who approaches health with an out-of-the-box problem solving attitude. Her patients love that she breaks what seems like complicated mumbo-jumbo into humorous stories, and digestible information nuggets. She witnesses that empowering patients to better understand their own health leads to better outcomes and healthier lives.
Christina became a naturopathic doctor after experiencing her own complex heath journey. Her passion is to make health “easy to understand” for everyone. She is a forever learner, especially around the role our environment plays on our health, how our gut really is the centre of many health concerns, and how our mental wellness affects our daily living.
She is an international speaker, a published author, and an outdoor enthusiast. Her husband refers to her as a mermaid for her love of water sports and the ocean. Be sure to check out Dr. Christina’s website, and follow her on social media:
