Additional Information:


Over two decades, Dr. Kim has been a pioneer in integrative medicine, creating sustainable and impactful integrative medicine programs in various settings, including healthcare systems, academic medicine, and private practice.

Personal Statement:

Because underlying causes of illness involve lifestyle choices, lifestyle medicine has become more important in the last few years. Lifestyle medicine means using lifestyle choices (things that we can do for ourselves), including (but not limited to): choices in food, physical activity, breathing exercises, meditation, having strong positive relationships, and having meaningful spiritual practices.

My own experience with illness and the experiences of my family has influenced my clinical practices. For example, I had developed devastating chronic pain unresponsive to conventional medicine, including surgery, which now is no longer an issue due to the successful application of a neuroanatomical approach to pain. Based on my own experience, I have been developing integrative approaches to living with chronic pain, overcoming pain, and thriving despite the pain.

Some of my close family members have overcome cancer, toxic mold, and severe allergies, which I was involved closely with and subsequently developed effective clinical programs.
