Dr. Sy Powell – Rogue Gynecologist
I started on the path to becoming a functional medicine doctor because of issues surrounding my own fading health. Despite my profession and expertise as a conventional medicine doctor and gynecologist, I myself was struggling with issues of being overweight, overworked, spiritually bankrupt and, to top it off, was getting absolutely nowhere with my doctors whenever I came to them with yet another medical problem. It felt like my life was filled with weeds and I was on the fast track to completely burning out! I was making poor diet and lifestyle choices in an attempt to self medicate and numb my pain and the stress from trying to do it all: be a good mother, a dedicated doctor, a loving wife, a doting daughter to aging parents, and a choir member—and it was finally starting to take its toll.
I felt like I was banging my head against a wall until, in 2015, I discovered the Institute of Integrative Nutrition and got my professional certification as a Nutritional Health Coach. More importantly, I used my new education and the coaching I received to lose 50 pounds and to rid myself of all the noxious drugs I was taking just to mask my problems.
In other words, I blossomed. I became vibrant again.
Then… I went Rogue!
I was no longer satisfied with just conventional medicine.
Don’t get me wrong, conventional medicine works when you have an acute care issue—but not so well for chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, autoimmune disorders, anxiety, depression and cancer. That’s because conventional medicine wasn’t designed to cure you, it was designed to keep you coming back for ways to deal with and manage the symptoms of disease.
I am now a Functional Medicine doctor FIRST, and a Conventional Medicine doctor second!
As a Functional Medicine doctor, I work with corporations, groups, and individuals. I visit and consult with corporations to evaluate and create corporate wellness programs that actually work. I am a sought after motivational speaker and also lead retreats and workshops to educate people about holistic health practices. As a certified heath coach, I also offer several programs designed for individuals!
I created my Balance to Bloom program based on the functional medicine concept of finding the root causes of obesity and chronic diseases. No more Yo-Yo diets, mutilating surgeries, toxic prescription drugs, or crushing feelings of hate and self-loathing.
I have rediscovered the power of the body’s natural healing mechanisms. My coaching programs are the missing link between wanting to lose weight and taking the action to make it happen.
With my programs, you will learn how to achieve sustainable weight loss by:
- breaking the on-and-off-again dieting cycle
- overcoming sabotaging cravings
- conquering the subconscious limiting beliefs that are keeping you stuck
- getting your biology to work FOR you instead of AGAINST you
- receiving group support, guidance, and accountability
You will learn how to tend to the beautiful garden that is your body by balancing the four basic life issues that apply to everyone: having a healthy diet, incorporating natural movement, stress resilience, and self-awareness. You see, wellness isn’t just a state of mind, it is the mindset and lifestyle of being well.
