On today's episode, I interview the Sherlock Holmes of depression: psychiatrist and functional medicine doctor, Achina Stein.
As a board-certified psychiatrist for over 25 years, Dr. Stein’s osteopathic roots set her apart from the conventional psychiatrists because of her use of the biopsychosocial approach paired with functional medicine, which has made her a diagnosis detective.
Her son’s psychological health crisis in 2010 was the catalyst for exploring functional medicine, then establishing her practice, Functional Mind, and now the release of her book – the whole reason I knew I had to have her on the show – which is titled “What If It’s NOT Depression?”.
