To participate fully in the Longevity Economy, our health becomes our most important ally. Most of current Western medicine is based on managing diseases with medications, but often there are things we can do in our lifestyles to stay healthy and prevent problems from occurring in the first place. Join Dr. Katie Takayasu, an Integrative Medicine specialist in Stamford, to learn about the future of Integrative Medicine - a holistic approach to care that focuses on lifestyle factors like nutrition, exercise, sleep, spirituality and alternative modalities like acupuncture and herbs/supplements.

Katherine Takayasu, M.D., M.B.A. practices Integrative Medicine combining traditional Western medicine with evidence-based complementary modalities at Stamford Health. She helps patients heal naturally with acupuncture, mind-body medicine, botanical medicine, nutrition, and lifestyle optimization. She is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at Columbia University/New York Presbyterian and teaches the next generation of doctors about healing the whole patient mind, body and spirit. For her own wellbeing, Dr. Katie practices what she preaches. She engages in yoga and meditation regularly and enjoys experimenting with plant-based cuisine in the kitchen.
