About Dr. Keesha Ewers
Hi, I’m Dr. Keesha Ewers, the founder of The Academy for Integrative Medicine, an integrative medicine expert, doctor of sexology, psychotherapist, board certified functional medicine provider, Ayurvedic practitioner, medicine woman, best-selling author, speaker, and mother of four.
I help women reverse their autoimmune disease, heal their childhood trauma, and make friends with the woman they see in the mirror. This means you wind up with a healed digestive system, balanced hormones, a body you love, and energy that sizzles.
I love my work! I love the women I get to meet. I love facilitating that level of transformation.
Like many of the women I work with I have had autoimmune disease and breast cancer, been fat, fatigued and frazzled, had SIBO and candida overgrowth, been depressed (and even suicidal), and have had to heal from childhood sexual abuse. I have been there, done that, and gotten the tee-shirt. My mission? To guide other women to get to where I am now. I reversed my rheumatoid arthritis within a year of diagnosis, healed my breast cancer naturally, balanced my gut microbiome, and have learned the mighty lessons that past trauma is meant to teach us. I know how it feels like to hear a doctor tell you there is no cure. I know what it feels like to look at your children and wonder where you are going to get the energy to be a good mother. I know what it feels like to try and try and to fail and fall down. The road to health is not straight and it’s not easy, but it is marked with sign posts if you know how to read them. That’s where I come in! I am not like the average doctor out there. I won’t just look at your blood work and match a drug to your symptoms. I am a medical detective and really good at solving complex health puzzles. We are going to discover WHY you are suffering before jumping straight to WHAT can be done to alleviate your symptoms.
If you are ready to work with someone who will really listen to your story and get to the root causes of your problem, then apply to be a patient now.
