A challenging diagnosis both for the patient and the doctor. Fibromyalgia is a pain syndrome that has little treatment available and no certain cause. Dr. Herbst has a personal interest in this health challenge and her comprehensive functional medicine approach is rooted in genetics, biochemistry, and applied pathophysiology. Outcomes are promising.
