Dr. Anita Wang’s introduction to Western Medicine originated from symptoms of fever, sore throat, headache and neck pain. A pediatrician examined her and determined she needed a spinal tap to rule out meningitis. When she became ill with severe coughing and chest pain her grandfather took her to a Chinese medicine doctor. He checked her pulse and tongue and gave her little pellets that soon restored her health. Her relatives believed that food was directly connected to well-being as her grandfather used to suck on ginseng root for energy and her mother brewed Chinese herbs to alleviate her brother’s asthma.

As a conventionally trained physician in acute care medicine she believes in the merits of western technology but one should not wait for symptoms before seeking medical advice. Being proactive using Functional Medicine provides a deeper approach to investigating the root cause of chronic illness. It identifies cellular dysfunctions by designing a personalized treatment plan based on examination of hormones, genetics, environment, nutrition and lifestyle. The ultimate goal is to extend lifespan and wellness with optimal cognitive capacity, energy and stamina.

Traditional Western Medicine treats disease by dividing patients into sub-specialties ie: heart, lung or colon, yet despite these divisions, problems remain unsolved. Dr. Wang determined that Functional Medicine, which incorporates plant based medications, proved to be more significant in healing and treating the whole person vs. individual parts.

On Thursday, June 7th from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, Dr. Wang will speak at the Woman’s Club about Functional Medicine and non-surgical procedures for women with urinary incontinence. She is pleased to introduce the FDA approved Exilis Ultra Femme device. There will also be a screening of Escape Fire: The Fight to Rescue American Healthcare and a light meal will be provided for those attending.  RSVP at: 949-734-0580.

Her wish for all is a wonderful healthy long life full of vitality and beauty!
