Overcoming Complex Conditions

I help women with fibro, autoimmune, and other life-limiting conditions take control of symptoms and transition into higher states of wellness.


-Casey Potetz, MSOM LAc. Dipl. Acu 

Managing a complex condition can be confusing, exhausting, and frustrating.


Are you limited by painful flare-ups and chronic fatigue?


Do your symptoms make day-to-day life difficult?


Are you sick of being controlled by pain?

You have the power to design and transition into a life unbound by symptoms.

As a Chinese Medicine Practitioner, I’ve helped hundreds of people deep-dive into the root of their health issues and create personal programs that incite progress and get real results.

The Medicinal Guide Programs work to optimize healing on the energetic, emotional, and physical levels.

Chinese Medicine is a doctrine thousands of years old. Ancient wisdom combined modern knowledge and actionable plans allow us to break through even the most complex health conditions.

Is The Medicinal Guide right for me?






Meet Casey

How long have you been helping people transition out of chronic pain, and how did you become a healing coach?


An Early Start in Healing Work: I knew I wanted to work with complex health conditions since I was twelve years old. My mother had been experiencing chronic illness symptoms her entire life, but they really started flaring up around this time. She had a range of confusing symptoms that were all over the map, stuck in a cycle of flare-ups and exhaustion the 'pain and drain' loop. She was extremely frustrated, always tired, and nothing seemed to help.  I could see our medical system wasn’t working for her, and so I started asking questions. I began pushing her to take her health into her own hands. Before I was a teenager, I was able to help my mom make major breakthroughs and transition into a life that supports her. She finally broke out of her suffering, was able to control flare-ups, and had a lot more energy to do the things she loved. This is where my passion for holistic healing really developed. I truly enjoyed the process of creating and living the healing journey. I loved assisting in the process of transformation and now I'm a medical practitioner who gets to help other amazing women build a new life unbound by pain.

Discovery of a 4,000 Year Old Medicine: Because I got an early start working with chronic illness, I was set on a mission to help others overcome complex conditions where western medicine was falling short. I became obsessed with profound healing experiences. I earned a medical degree under Dr. Lillian Chang Y Hsiang, a 64th generation lineage disciple, and founder of the World Medicine Institute in Honolulu, HI, a graduate school for Chinese Medicine Practitioners and Acupuncturists. It wasn’t an easy journey of sprinkling magic fairy dust and healing people... not at all. There are very complex foundational systems and theories to Chinese Medicine. I was learning a 4,000 year old doctrine in a foreign language. After more than 5 years of studying on the graduate level, I received a Master of Science in Oriental Medicine, a license to practice acupuncture, and a diplomate status from our accrediting board.


A System that Works: Throughout my clinical career, I asked myself the recurring question, “why do some people heal up easily, while others continue to suffer?”. The pivotal moment in my life came after I opened my own practice in Connecticut. After refining my work with patients, using a specific process of transformation, I discovered a system to help others overcome even the most complex and frustrating conditions. Because of my background, skills, and experience, I was finally able to make a real difference in the lives of people suffering from debilitating fatigue, and painful flare-ups like joint pain, headaches, bloating, digestive issues, emotional episodes, and skin issues. We work with a combination of science-based strategies and holistic approaches to optimize healing in every aspect of life. In turn, that synergistically levels up the patient’s ability to self-manage, or self-heal, their chief complaints. I watch patients transform from being victims of their own illness, to regaining control and practicing mastery of their bodies and their health.


I now run a remote coaching program, called Overcoming Complex Conditions (OCC), which is for women, anywhere in the world, who are ready to take back the power and create the self-healing lifestyle that they absolutely LOVE.

I’ve dedicated my life to the Doctrine of Chinese Medicine. I put the steps into a program. And now I help women all over the world overcome the most complex health conditions.

Who are your clients?


The Overcoming Complex Conditions™ Program is for women who have a chronic pain condition or an inflammatory condition. Most often I work with fibromyalgia patients, but a diagnosis is not required to enroll in the program. Helping women do their own detective work and make breakthrough self discoveries is where I find the most fulfillment, and so I work with women who:


  • have had multiple symptoms for more than 6 months (such as swelling, itching, headaches, unspecified pain, generalized pain or pain in multiple areas)

  • suffer from fatigue, inflammation, energy levels, brain fog, sleep problems, and/or digestive issues

  • have unpredictable symptom flare-ups

  • are under the care of a primary care physician

  • have tried nutrition plans and various remedies but aren’t getting the results they want

  • have flare-ups that are life-limiting (they affect work, relationships, responsibilities, etc.)

  • are looking to address the root cause of their conditions and not just mask the symptoms

  • are willing to change in multiple areas of their lives to get results

  • are ready to embark on a strategic healing journey


What types of conditions are your programs for?


I work with women who have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, autoimmune conditions, and other chronic diseases or syndromes such as HSV 1 & 2, Lyme Disease, and rheumatoid arthritis. Again, a diagnosis is not required to enroll in my program, as long as there are multiple symptoms that fluctuate in severity. These symptoms might include:


  • specified pain

  • generalized pain

  • weakness

  • fatigue

  • digestive issues

  • skin issues

  • sleep problems

  • headaches

  • arthritis

  • gerd or acid reflux symptoms

  • lack of appetite

  • neuropathy

  • anxiety

  • depression

  • palpitations

  • hormone imbalance

  • swelling, itching, or burning sensations


If you have questions about enrollment, please contact me directly at casey@themedicinalguide.com.


What makes you different from other health coaches?


I can guarantee you that there is no other practitioner like me. Not only because of my specialties, knowledge, and experience, but because I’ve created a hybrid program that intersects western medical knowledge with ancient healing techniques. I have a true passion for getting to the root of the problem and working outward, helping my clients create an all-inclusive custom treatment plan that becomes a healing lifestyle that they absolutely love.


I’m different because I am 100% dedicated to getting my clients results, fast, leaving no stone unturned. Getting to the part where we have the dream life that includes leaving pain and symptoms behind is going to be challenging. Healing journeys are not all fairy dust and unicorn farts. I don’t have a magic healing tunnel filled with cotton candy and rainbows. You get it. I’m going to tell you things you may not want to hear and I will hold you accountable for following through on what you put in your treatment plan. You should expect that from me and know that everything I do is to get a healing transformation out of you.


What type of personality do you work best with and what is expected of me?


Overcoming Complex Conditions™ was created for people who are absolutely excited and dead serious about transitioning into a healing lifestyle. That means they are willing to change their lives in multiple areas in order to give their body what it needs. I work with people who are done blaming themselves, or anything/anyone else, for their painful conditions, and who are ready to dedicate time and energy into OVERCOMING symptoms and making major BREAKTHROUGHS. This is for people who are done settling for a life confined by their illness, not being able to enjoy the things they love, or fulfill their purpose.


For what type of people are your programs NOT going to work?


Please know that I am very selective in who I enroll in my programs. I will not accept anyone I don’t think is a good fit or anyone who I don’t think has the dedication or desire to complete the steps to get the results. People who are not a good fit are people who: 


  • expect me to do the work or get results for them

  • are unwilling to implement the steps

  • blame doctors or other healthcare providers for not being able to fix them

  • are so addicted to an unhealthy lifestyle that they are unwilling to change

  • refuse to give up trigger foods and substances

  • do not have access to healthy food choices

  • have not seen any doctors or medical specialist about their conditions (holistic healing includes western medicine and it would be irresponsible for any health coach to accept a client who has not seen a medical doctor in person)


What exactly is the Overcoming Complex Conditions™ system and what does it include?


The Overcoming Complex Conditions™ Program begins with a deep-dive consultation that gets us down to the root of the problem. We work together to create a treatment plan that addresses the root (underlying imbalance), as well as the branches (presenting symptoms). The program is centered around diagnostics and treatment plans, but we also work to optimize five core areas of life: mindset, lifestyle, therapies, nutrition, and relationships.


Here’s what the system gets you to do:


  1. Immediately bring down presenting symptoms

Usually clients begin the program with a list of complaints that need to be addressed immediately before moving on to the full diagnostic evaluation. This might include pressing symptoms such as severe or nagging pain, an inflammatory episode, or emotional difficulty. *


   2. Cut through symptom confusion and determine the root cause(s) of illness

This is where we use our diagnostic tools and the lens of Chinese Medicine to figure out where the underlying imbalances are. *


   3. Create a treatment plan that addresses all areas of imbalance

We work applying self-care, therapies, and lifestyle adjustments to address the root causes of illness, as well as the branch symptoms, which may or may not be related to the root imbalance. These imbalances exist in physical form, as well as emotional blockages and inner resistance.*

   4. Execute your treatment plan effectively

After creating the plan that works best for you, execution is what gets results. The program is designed to keep you accountable and consistent so that we can determine what works, and what doesn’t. *


   5. Troubleshoot flare-ups

Flare-ups are part of the process. In fact, they are necessary diagnostic tools that can bring us closer to building the perfect treatment plan. Refining your detective skills during a flare-up will help you (1)get through them easily and (2) prevent them from recurring. *


   6. Create a personalized self-care toolkit

Aside from your treatment plan, the toolkit is to be used during, or on the brink of a flare-up. Setting up a ready-to-go wellness toolkit will help you swiftly and easily get through an inflammatory episode. You can also use the tools in this kit to keep your symptom levels down during a time of difficulty or trigger exposure.


   7. Find deeper intimacy with your inner-self

Mindset work is a major key in this transformation process. All things stem from the way we feel about ourselves. We work to re-create this inner narrative and heal old ideas about how we think, feel, and experience. You can expect a deeper connection with your inner-self to manifest into better relationships and achievements in other areas of your life.


   8. Celebrate and enjoy living the supportive lifestyle you’ve created!

The purpose of this program is to transition you into the life you love waking up to every single day. The life that keeps you healthy and happy. The life that sustains you with healing energy, love, and absolute joy.

Can you guarantee my results and how quickly can I expect to get them?

But I can guarantee that, if you follow my system and complete all the steps, you will gain absolute control over your body and your life. You will have new abilities and tools not only applicable to your health, but in all aspects where there is room for improvement. Program results vary depending on symptoms, severity, and willingness to change. Some of the program modules are intended to get immediate results and some will produce results after repetitive application. There will be ups and downs, especially in the first few weeks, but the goal is to steadily increase your health and wellness over the length of the entire program and beyond.
