I live in Alabama. I've been a vegetarian for about 18 years but it's been a heavily processed diet with some fruits and veggies mixed in. I want to live a more raw lifestyle so I was considering finding an holistic doctor to talk to. How do I find one? Or do I really need one? Thank you!
I recommend having a functional medicine or integrative medicine doctor. You may find a local practitioner or you could check out a research/academic/teaching hospital. Such doctors helped me me a lot with an autoimmune disorder & food allergies.
Look in the larger cities like Birmingham, Huntsville, Anniston, Mobile. Do an online search for them. I know there are a few in Northern Florida but if you are in Blount County that's a long drive. Some of the local herbal shop owners have a great deal of knowledge that they are glad to disseminate for free. Good luck in your search!
