I’m Dr. Kourtney and I believe that to fully experience optimal health and wellness that an integrative and holistic lifestyle is fundamental. I have worked with thousands of women for over a decade from across the globe helping them to get to the root cause of their health issues and empowering them with integrated plans to help them not only heal but thrive.
I found my way to the holistic integrative path because like you I have had my own health challenges. Over my life I have dealt with various health issues that weren’t fully treated by the traditional medical model like:
Extreme eczema through my childhood and teenage years
Auto-immunity battles from chronic urticaria to lung disease
Hormones and mood completely out of whack with worsening cycles
Digestive Absorption Issues and Nutrient Deficiencies
Chronic gut issues with extreme bloating and water retention
I know what it is like first hand to not be able to get out of bed and to feel trapped and helpless by your own body. And I know from experience that when you adopt holistic principles and take the time to get to the root cause of your issues then the path to true wellness becomes crystal clear.

I am a true proponent of unlocking the true power of the body to allow it to heal.
I describe true wellness as living a life that optimizes the best of ancient holistic traditions including those from the Ayurvedic, Eastern, and Herbal medical traditions as well as Western medical principles and knowledge. It is from this place that I believe that health is truly optimized. It is here that I have found that even some of the most challenging chronic disease states will respond.
What Do I believe about health and wellness?
#1 The human body possesses many tools to heal itself and that it is up to us to load the toolbox.
The body is truly an amazing machine with an all encompassing drive to return to “homeostasis” or balance. Our bodies speak to us in the only language that they can which is how it makes us “feel” as we either approach or get further away from the ideal balance. But like any machine it does require the appropriate parts for repair and function and often times we are neglectful in replenishing our inventory properly as we should with the right lifestyle, nutrition, mindfulness, meditation, movement, recovery periods, spiritual and emotional connections.
#2 Your body did not go to medical school
Your body has an innate knowledge all it’s own and although it does follow general conventions each one of us has a blueprint that is truly unique. Some people may need to start with a root gut issue while for others it may be emotional traumas that are the biggest trigger point. It is through you listening to your body and peeling back the layers to discover the root causes underneath that you can truly discover where the problem lies and start to heal.
#3 There truly are NO shortcuts!
While I am all for traditional medications in the appropriate circumstances we as a population have really dug ourselves in a hole with our “get it quick” attitude. The body’s optimal state of wellness is like water carving a rock slowly over time. It take consistent practice of the correct habits specific to your blueprint that will optimize it’s function—it’s as simple as that. Of course no one is perfect but you have to not just know what’s good for you but actually make the space within your life to make yourself important enough to do what’s good for you.

How do you find your path?
Putting your body back in balance is part art, part science. I know that having only 1 or 2 “good weeks” out of the month is an absolutely miserable experience. I know how frustrating it is to not have enough energy to life your life to the fullest. I know what it’s like to feel like your insides are betraying you every time you open your mouth for a bite.
