Rabia Vaughns, PA-C Physician Assistant, dedicated to supporting women live their happiest and healthiest lives now usin As a certified physician assistant and co-owner of Elevate Functional Medicine, I support healing using a unique, "functional" approach to medical care.

I work to offer solutions to the crippling numbers of individuals suffering with chronic health conditions by shifting focus from managing diseases to optimizing health and investigating underlying causes of disease. In the functional medicine approach there is a partnership between the provider and patient, and the focus is on treating the whole person – mind, body and spirit. I got my start in f

Oh man. 😳😳😳 This hits hard.

Giving of yourself to others can be a wonderful thing. 🤗 Over giving, not so much. ☹️ It is often a sign that we do not feel inherently worthy of love.

It requires us to sacrifice our boundaries to please and appease others. Over giving makes us sad, sick, and resentful. There is no joy in over giving. It leads to burnout and chronic illness.

But if we tune in, we can usually find there is a part of us deep inside, that is in need of our time, attention, generosity, patience, and love. We think we are waiting for someone else to show up to meet those needs but really we’re waiting for ourselves.

What if we took all that energy we were extending to others on the outside, and instead we gave it to ourselves? What if we got in the habit of asking ourselves “what are you needing” and we showed up for ourselves?

If you are done starving for your own attention and ready to finally show up for you drop a 💓 for yourself below!

Nobody can do your life better than you can.

Own who you are.

The opportunity of a lifetime is shedding the false ideas you have about who you are, and working to discover the truest version of yourself.

You know you’re getting close when “just being me” brings more and more peace.

💓 What does “being who I am” mean to you?

Start running some experiments with yourself. Pay close attention to what makes you feel great and what doesn’t. Learn what conditions are required for you to feel your best. Other people can give you information and guidance m but you are the only one who can choose to implement consistently. Choose more of what makes you feel good! 🙌

We think there is one of us inside, but we actually have many parts.

There are parts that feel abandoned and lonely, and want to be loved and liked by others. There are other parts that tell us we need to be perfect or change to get that love.

There are parts that are sad, and other parts that try to protect us from the sadness by covering it up with shopping, gossiping, wine, or scrolling on social media.

There are parts that are angry, parts that feel nervous when the anger comes because being angry is “wrong”, and parts that overwork, over eat and overspend to deal with the war inside.

Then there is our real Self, our higher self. That part can watch all the other parts, notice their patterns and meet them with love.

We are inherently good. Everything our parts do is to protect us. Sometimes what a part used to keep us protected no longer serves us.

In order to find peace, love, and healing from within we must bring our higher Self on board. Our higher self can meet all other parts with compassion, and whisper “I know you had to do that then, but I’m going to show you a better way now.” Our higher Self can take new action including loving and accepting all parts of us.

Estrogen is essential for many roles in the human body.

Too much estrogen, however, can lead to unwanted symptoms and disease. Having too much estrogen and/or not enough progesterone can cause symptoms of estrogen dominance. This is common as a woman nears menopause because our bodies are not able to make as much progesterone.

When it comes to estrogen, you want just the right amount and focus on balancing your levels with appropriate amounts of progesterone.

If you need support bringing your hormones into balance call ☎️ (470) 266-1380 for a free 15 minute discovery call.

I have had 35 year olds come in to my office, naming a long list of symptoms they are having and then telling me they assumed it was because they were “getting older”. It always turns out that there are functional imbalances that once corrected, results in a return to health.

What’s worse is many women's symptoms are dismissed by their doctors because it's "normal for your age".

I once went to a G.I. doctor because I was having a lot of stomach bloating. Instead of looking into what was causing my bloating she told me "you're just bloated, that's what happens when you get older… look I'm bloated too" as she pointed at her puffed out stomach. Needless to say I got a new doctor.

The truth is that symptoms show up as a way to alert us to imbalances in the physical, emotional, or mental parts of us. Age alone is not a reason to feel ill. Don’t settle for a doctor who blames your symptoms on age. Get to the root cause.

The reason you feel stuck is not because you are broken, crazy or lazy.

The reason you feel stuck is because you have needs that that are not being met.

Instead of judging yourself for having struggles, try meeting yourself with curiosity and compassion.

Watch how you speak about getting healthy.

Does it seem like a chore or something that excites you?

Feel the difference between
- I HAVE to and I WANT to
- I SHOULD and I COULD
- HAVE to and I GET to

What do you notice??

It’s hard to commit to things long term when they carry the energy of another thing you have to do. Small changes in your words translates to a much more enjoyable and easy journey to health and well being.

An under functioning thyroid can contribute to a variety of “dis-ease” states including depression, obesity, fibromyalgia, constipation, hyperlipidemia and chronic fatigue.

This often leaves people searching for symptom relief for each of the above instead of addressing the root cause.

If you are having symptoms of low thyroid function but still not getting answers I can help.

As we continues navigate the pandemic it’s so important to focus on what we are in control of.

Integrative medicine means we leverage all tools available to support the highest health outcomes for individuals and populations.

Vaccines may not be appropriate for everybody but they should be included in the conversation when we consider an integrative approach to Covid.

I encourage you to seek out evidence-based information about the vaccine, weigh the pros and cons, seek support from your medical provider, and make the decision that is best for you. Remember you can use all the tools in your toolbox, you don’t have to pick just one. 💓
