When I was practicing traditional medicine following medical school, I always wished for more time to spend with my patients. I wanted to help them do more than just get through each day with their chronic health issues. I wanted to help them regain function, zest for life, and simply feeling like themselves again. I soon realized that my passion and calling were in integrative medicine.
Integrative medicine allows me to utilize so many more tools than were available to me in my traditional medical toolbox. I have more ways to guide my patients through their management of chronic illnesses. With more time to devote to each patient, I am able to provide better answers and solutions for developing individualized care plans that get at the root cause of their symptoms. In my practice, patients are fully involved in their treatment plans as they discover ways to actually change how they feel and function.
I find it so satisfying to be able to help people feel healthier and younger with increased energy, vitality, and cognition!
Areas of expertise
I take special interest in regenerative medicine as a part of my integrative medicine practice. In particular, cognitive improvement. Many people struggle with cognition as they age, but don’t realize that they can actually improve it through lifestyle changes, hormone optimization and nutritional supplementation. In addition, I have expertise in the management of hormone imbalances (particularly in women) and thyroid conditions. I spend a lot of time working with my patients on developing unique personalized care plans focused on dietary and nutrition changes. These lifestyle modifications are key in supporting different mechanisms in the brain, helping to keep it functioning as it did in younger years, and to prevent further memory and cognition loss.
Dementia and Alzheimer’s are especially challenging, sensitive conditions for both patients and their families to manage. Because of this, I devote special care and attention in education and incorporating best medical practices to help these patients take back control of their livelihood.
A note from Alexandra
In my own time, I enjoy keeping myself updated in the field of integrative medicine in general. I’m also a published author in metabolic syndrome. I like to continue my own health and wellness journey through maintaining a healthy lifestyle so that I can continue to learn, and in turn, further educate my patients.
