#27: Thomas Sylvest Håkansson – Finding a Way When The Doctors Say There is Nothing More To Do

How do you deal with a chronic disease that the doctors say there is nothing to do about? What do you do when the healthcare system you have been depending on for years has not provided sufficient alleviation to what you are suffering from? This is something way too many people experience today. Thomas Sylvest was one of them and with a solid health background as a master in pharmaceutical science, he put his trust in new medicine for several years without seeing the results. That is when he embarked on a journey to learn more about functional medicine which has moved him from a wheelchair, lots of different medicine and severe pain to today’s walking, having a child, living with little pain and almost no medicine.  

Thomas shares his journey with Rheumatoid Arthritis and several other diseases that he has been affected by. He shares concrete tips for what has worked for him, what is backed by science and how you can structure your own health journey – because what works for Thomas might not be the same that works for you. But the overall strategy is similar for finding solutions.

If you listen to the end you can even win a price – more details in the show notes 🙂
