Like many doctors, Tina began her career in emergency medicine. Yet, when her daughter was born with a congenital cardiac anomaly requiring her to have multiple surgeries at birth, she found conventional medicine to lack guidance and solutions that improved her symptoms.
Feeling desperate and determined to help her child, Tina found an osteopath, who with just one simple spinal adjustment helped her daughter start to breath normally for the very first time.
Tina was blown away that the even best doctors in the field were not equipped to address her daughter’s issues, and here an “on the fringe” osteopath succeeded with one simple touch.
Although it was 1995 and very few integrative medical resources were available, Tina paved her own way. First in becoming a medical acupuncturist as a supplement to her time in the ER, and next as an integrative internist at a private practice.
She found that manipulation of the diet along with acupuncture treatments were incredibly effective at addressing chronic conditions like asthma, digestive issues, skin issues, fatigue, and more.
From that point forward, Tina became a pioneer in the emerging field of integrative medicine and worked closely with her fellow practitioners to make it the more mainstream approach it is today.
Tina has been a highly sought after doctor for celebrities, top executives, and countless individuals interested in taking a more holistic approach to their health and wellbeing.
In her 20+ years as a physician, functional medical doctor and acupuncturist, Dr. Discepola has found that the most effective way to facilitate long-term health for her patients is through three key wellness pillars.
- Finding the root cause of disease or dysfunction in the body through in-depth testing and detailed discussions.
- Treating each patient with a customized plan that leverages plant-based nutrition and holistic treatments first, and medication second.
- Empowering each patient to become her own health expert by helping her tune into the useful signals of her unique body.
Dr. Discepola summarizes her approach, “I have developed an effective way to correct health issues that leverages the insight of science along with the ancient wisdom of alternative therapies so that true healing and transformation can occur.”
