With the best of all the worlds (a board certified family practice and integrative holistic physician, a mom of four crazy busy boys (ages eight, five, two and a newborn), wife, daughter and a lifelong student), I am dedicated to help educate others towards wellness and happiness. I have always been drawn to the idea of true healing, not band aiding the problem. I LOVE getting to the root cause and thereby healing. I help to aid healing using lifestyle management (stress reduction, nutrition, gut healing, exercise, social and spiritual growth), parenting/child wellness, homeopathy and minimal supplements.
What an Integrative Holistic MD Does Differently
We are the best of both worlds, honestly. As an integrative holistic family practice doctor, I use all my medical skills, but with heart, compassion and a sense of connection with nature and spirit (all with a huge smile and laughter). I combine multiple therapies with the goal of enhancing the patient’s optimal health as a whole person: body, mind and spirit. I love preventing and treating disease by addressing contributing factors.
With stress reduction and lifestyle modification, I seek to restore the various imbalances (mental, physical, hormonal, psychosocial, spiritual) that may be resulting in conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, pre-diabetes, diabetes, gastrointestinal issues, depression, anxiety, insomnia, weight problems, fatigue, muscle aches, and other conditions that could be affecting health and wellness. This evidence based approach results in better outcomes.
How I Can Help
I LOVE to help and heal! I help those who need a different approach to healing or in conjunction with medication, as well as those who would like to live as healthy as they can to prevent disease and thoroughly enjoy life. I teach simple tips for overall healing and prevention. These are tips I have learned from great teachers and extensive research. I have applied them to my family and patients with great success!

Key points in prevention and holistic treatment :
Chronic inflammation gradually destroys the beautiful system that we were born with. It’s the common denominator of chronic diseases–the increase of chronic illness we see today is a direct outcome of an increase in inflammation. Unfortunately, most people suffer from one or more of these disorders, but don’t know how to eliminate inflammation. Instead of addressing the root cause to chronic diseases, many doctors today are prescribing pharmaceuticals to simply address the symptoms until the issue is just manageable.
To be truly effective at managing and/or overcoming a disease, we need to address these processes at every level. What causes inflammation and how can we effectively treat it? Any deficit of the factors below can cause inflammation.
