Kathleen Hopkins, DO Related seminars and products


Kathleen G Hopkins DO, IFMCP, AIHM Fellow, is a board certified family physician whose passion for Integrative Medicine began over 20 years ago while doing fieldwork in Ayurvedic Medicine. It was through combining the philosophies of Ayurveda with the practice of family medicine that she had watched growing up as the daughter of a small town Iowa doctor, that she was able to resolve her own chronic GI, pain and skin issues that she had experienced since childhood. She has found that Functional Medicine training has allowed her to combine her love of the patient’s narrative as well as the evaluation of the microbiome, genetic makeup, metabolics, movement, sleep, nutrition, relationships and sense of purpose. She believes that health is a dynamic balance and that medicine should be patient centered versus disease centered
