Physician health support Dr Ann Seide Integrative medicine


Helping medical professionals heal and find balance while rediscovering their passion for life and work. Tailored health support for health professionals from an experienced allopathic doctor.


To be integrated in relation to health means we leave nothing out. Not your emotional health, your environment, or your lifestyle and habits (like nutrition, exercise).

In the following video, Dr. Seide talks about our physiologic response to stress, and ways we can modulate this with breath and awareness.

Just as mindfulness practices affect our physiology, so too what our bodies do affects our minds.

Western medicine has always been good at fixing problems, but it is less adept at supporting our bodies' innate ability to heal.

Integrative Medicine physicians view the whole person, offering a multi-dimensional approach to healing that has the potential to profoundly relieve suffering on all levels.
