So, with that being said, I hope you enjoy learning a little about me and my journey so that I can help you live your best life possible!
My journey into integrative wellness started about 10 years ago when I underwent unexplained symptoms. Unfortunately, in medical school and at traditional medical conferences, we were not educated about the natural options available to us as Physicians to promote optimal health in our patients. We gained knowledge about overly used pharmaceuticals to treat our patients’ symptoms. I rarely had time to get to know my patients on a personal level by only spending 5 -10 minutes with them during their office visit.
I treated women who were often times suffering from symptoms related to PMS, post-partum and menopause. I was trained to prescribe medications related to symptoms but I had always felt a strong desire to do more. I wanted to actually treat my patients, not just their symptoms. However, due to the adherence to insurance guidelines, I was not able to spend the time with my patients that they deserved.
And then one day a light bulb went off in my head and in my heart…I was a patient at my Ob/Gyn’s office for a follow-up after giving birth to my son. While I knew I wasn’t feeling like myself, I never thought I would walk out of the office with a prescription for an antidepressant. You can imagine how I felt leaving the office that day. I didn’t understand why I would be given such a medication when I knew that I wasn’t depressed. I knew I didn’t feel like myself and I needed to find out why.
I have dedicated my integrative wellness and aesthetics practice to everyone who has been where I have been, felt how I felt, and knew there had to be another option. My passion and mission is to help find the causes of symptoms and treat the causes, not the symptoms.
I focus on bio-Identical hormones, nutritional balancing, food and gluten sensitivity, detoxification, and much more to help achieve perfect harmony in my patients’ bodies. In some cases, it only take one or two simple tests to determine the cause while in other cases, it may take multiple advanced diagnostics tests. These are tests that are very specialized and cannot be completed in a traditional medical office or lab. What I love the most is putting all of these lab findings together like a puzzle to find the missing piece! I have been fortunate to treat tens of thousands of patients over the past 20 years including local and national celebrities such as Grammy Award winners to NFL players.
