For 19 years, I have studied Eastern philosophies and medicine, and for 12 years, I have been applying this knowledge in practice. People ask, “What even is a an Eastern Medicine Doctor?” We study ancient and intricate medical theory from the East, which is mind-blowing, and we pair this wisdom with the current western scientific understanding of the human body.
We have rigorous undergraduate, master’s, and doctoral degrees covering: Anatomy and physiology, chemistry, pathophysiology, pharmacology, psychology, biology, neurobiology, integrative pain management, nutrition, laboratory testing, diagnostics, evidence-informed practice, red-flag referrals, and more.
I am incredibly grateful that a calling led me to practice the world’s first integrative and functional medicine. Thousands of years of practice and refinement in human healing have passed down through generations. Seriously, think about that.
The ancients peered into the universe and decoded how our minds, bodies, and spirits worked from a macrocosmic perspective. These days we are in reverse, looking microscopically into every detail, missing at times that we are not pieces but a whole human whose needs and functions are interconnected.
Part of the magic and results at Iris Wellness Center come from working on all aspects of our human existence- physical health, mental health, relationships, career, spiritual/religious purpose, and connection.
By uncovering treatment blocks on all levels, your body can heal stubborn ‘untreatable’ physical manifestations.
