Dr. Kyia is a board certified ob/gyn, author and functional medicine expert who is committed to integrating the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual components of health. After complete burnout following her training, and almost retiring from medicine because she was tired of treating “symptoms” and never getting true healing for her patients, she started exploring other healing methods. She was determined to find tools for herself and her patients that would heal disease rather than putting a band-aid over it. She clearly recognized the gaps within the traditional medicine modality and began exploring ways to treat the entire person, taking into consideration the emotional and spiritual aspects of health. She came to realize that the missing piece of the puzzle involved identifying the root cause of disease, not just on a physical level, but also on the emotional and spiritual level. Unless this is holistically addressed, issues simply re-manifest, never resolve or get worse.
