Allen Lewis - Healing the Brain with Functional Integrative Medicine
Allen Lewis, MD is the founder of Sancta Familia Center for Integrative Medicine. He is recognized as a leading physician in his field focused on helping patients achieve optimal wellness utilizing integrative and functional medicine to restore health to the mind, body, and spirit.
He specializes in treating children and adults with learning, mood, developmental, behavioral, and immune disorders, including autism spectrum disorder, ADHD, PANS/PANDAS and Lyme Disease. In addition, he treats patients with stress and anxiety disorders and gastrointestinal issues.
His medical career was directed down a different path when his child was diagnosed with autism at age two. Without a functional framework in traditional medicine for treatment of his child’s autism and associated medical problems, Dr. Lewis began to explore integrative, holistic, and functional medicine therapies. Dietary intervention, targeted nutrient supplementation, and approaching treatment with a more integrative/functional framework proved to be effective in helping his child, as well as many of his patients. In response to seeing such profound effects with these treatments, Dr. Lewis continued to explore other integrative medicine modalities and was certified by the American Board of Integrative Holistic Medicine. He serves on the Scientific Advisory Board of Advanced Brain Technologies and incorporates The Listening Program® in his practice as one of his therapeutic modalities.
Listen to this inspiring episode as Alex and Allen share a deeply personal conversation, that will provide hope and guidance to families impacted by the wide range of medical conditions he treats in his practice. Together they discuss family, functional integrative medicine, stress, autism, patient stories, and how to heal the brain.
