If I’ve said it once, I’ve said it a thousand times: the medical model is broken. And few things exemplify that more than what a particular internal medicine doctor recently said to one of my patients about birth control pills. After hearing about this, I had to open this up for discussion, so today I’m going to share with you a Facebook Live video I did over the weekend.

In it, I discuss the ridiculous thing this medical doctor said to my patient, as well as other classic examples like it that only further prove that the medical industry needs to change. Listen in to hear me share my thoughts on my patient’s case, as well as answering questions about how birth control pills damage women’s bodies, alternative treatment options, and more.
