About My Guest:

My guest for this episode is Dr. Dawn DeSylvia, MD. Dr. Dawn DeSylvia is a nationally recognized board-certified doctor in Family Medicine, with over 15 years experience in Functional and Integrative Medicine. In 2000, Dr. DeSylvia’s honest approach and ability to speak to all areas of Functional and Integrative medicine lead her to help co-create and manage an Integrative Medical Program for the Los Angeles Free Clinic. Dr. DeSylvia soon learned she had an innate ability to create programs and connect people and organizations in a meaningful and lasting fashion leading her right into medical school. In 2003, Dr. DeSylvia entered into UCLA Medical School, where she continued her passion and commitment for integrating and evolving healthcare. After completing her UCLA residency in 2007, she accepted a faculty position as an associate clinical physician at UCLA Santa Monica Hospital and the UCLA Malibu Family Practice Office. While on staff with UCLA, she studied extensively with The Institute of Functional Medicine, The Academy for the Advancement of Medicine, The American Academy of Ozone Therapy, as well as with many of the leaders in Biologic, Environmental, and Mind Body Medicine. Through this self-directed secondary medical residency she was able to cultivate an understanding of the two underlying questions about health, healing and longevity. Specifically, they are, “What is really making us sick, and causing inflammation which we know fosters disease to grow and develop?” and “What does science, confirmed by direct and reproducible experience, tell us, and show us, can be done on a root (not merely symptomatic) level to facilitate and foster health, healing and longevity?” In 2013, Dr. DeSylvia left her position at UCLA as an Associate Clinical Faculty member to form an Integrative Medical Center of her own on the Westside of Los Angeles, Ca. Whole Life Health MD. It is her firm belief that by improving the quality of the questions we ask as doctors that we will obtain more informed and effective interventions, thus decreasing disease risks, improving outcomes, and decreasing health care costs for all parties involved.
