As a child, I was expected to become a concert pianist. This was my parents’ choice (typical tiger parents). I obeyed this prewritten future until I came to the US at age 17. In college, I majored in bioengineering, a choice I made out of pragmatic necessity. During my college years, I was mesmerized by my science classes and the wondrous dynamic of the mind and body, working together in perfect unity. I went to medical school, following my curiosity rather than doing what my parents wanted or choosing the financially safe option. For more than 25 years, I am honored and humbled to have the privilege of doing what I love most every day: practicing medicine.
In the first few years of practicing, a series of medical issues made me lose hope. I slept poorly through the night, my hormones spiraled completely out of control, and I lost all my hair. I became moody, crazy, cranky, and depressed. During my pregnancy, a thyroid storm hit me, and I subsequently found out I had full-blown diabetes. My specialty doctors couldn’t help me, and medications caused more side effects than relief. I felt like I had become a shell of my previous self. This felt like a loss of my own identity. I couldn’t see myself as a wife, as a mom, or as a woman.
Out of my despair came my quest to repair and heal. After years of re-educating and re-training in integrative and anti-aging medicine, I discovered how to use all the tools in healing, not only pills and prescriptions.
Today, my purpose is to restore your energy, improve your sleep, balance your hormones, and fix your autoimmune disease by improving your immunity and healing your medical dysfunctions with natural remedies as I have walked that journey of healing 25 years ago myself. I am well, happy, healthy, AND full of energy, enjoying my life as your doctor, but also as a wife, as a mom of two kids, and as a woman. This is my message of hope to you because I want to help you see the truth and heal from your foundation, so you can also enjoy your life full of vitality, happiness, and health. This is my divine calling and the driving force behind what I do and why I practice medicine every single day.
