YOUR Total body health

Have you spent years battling a chronic disease or vague, unexplained symptoms? Maybe you’re tired of not getting any answers, and you’re looking for relief. 

By looking deep into the body’s complex network of systems, Dr. Katherine can identify patterns of dysfunction and return you to your personal best. She has seen many patients in the ER with serious symptoms not explained by conventional testing or diagnostic studies.

Many patients may have felt unwell for years but have never been offered treatment because there was no diagnosis, or even worse, dismissed after being told it was psychosomatic or just part of the normal aging process. Dr. Katherine uses advanced diagnostic testing to identify the imbalances that may be at the root of your symptoms.
