The autoimmune diseases impacting more than 24 million Americans, and recommendations for stabilizing and potentially reversing the course of these diseases

Steps for detoxing in an inherently toxic world

gut health

and so much more.

Here’s more about Dr. Casey and her background:

Since the beginning of her medical career, Dr. Casey Kelley, MDcontinually asked questions about health, longevity, and healing that conventional medicine didn’t answer. Seeking those answers, she began studying Functional Medicine to complement her traditional medical studies. Utilizing this multi-disciplinary approach, Dr. Kelley has been at the forefront of Integrative Medicine, devoting her career to treating patients in a highly personalized manner that focuses as much on overall health and wellness as it does on specific issues and diagnoses.

Board Certified in Family Medicine, Dr. Kelley was among the first physicians to add a board certification in Integrative Medicine as well. She has studied the causes, effects, and treatments of Lyme Disease extensively, and lectures nationally on this and other topics.

Dr. Kelley graduated from The Ohio State University College of Medicine and completed her residency in Family Medicine at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Chicago. She is a ten-year member of the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM), a Treasurer of The International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS), and is a Founding Member of the Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine (AIHM). Dr. Kelley is on the faculty at the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University.

Prior to founding Integrative HealthcareDr. Kelley practiced medicine at WholeHealth Chicago, Michigan Avenue Immediate Care, and St. Joseph’s Hospital.
