I started my private medical practice, Abundant Living Integrative Medicine, after restoring my own health and well-being with a combination of western and eastern medicine. I am one of the most comprehensively trained integrative MDs with completion of fellowship and certification training in Integrative, Functional, and Ayurvedic medicine. I thoroughly review each person’s health history and use innovative laboratory tests for the most up-to-date, personalized health assessments.
I specialize in reversing chronic imbalances that affect digestion, immune resilience, core energy pathways, heart health, brain health, mind-body detoxification, sleep cycles, cellular repair, cancer prevention, and healthy weight and metabolism. These are foundational physiologic functions underlying all human disease. Once the imbalances are corrected, health is restored and maintained in the body.
Health begins with honest self-reflection and an understanding that our body naturally seeks equilibrium when we nourish and nurture it. I prefer the description of balancing functions in the body in a proactive and preventive way rather than using disease language. The most helpful steps emerge as we work together and create your personalized integrative treatment plan.
