Learn which supplements are being used effectively against COVID19 and what is just snake oil.

She has witnessed, first-hand, the need for a more comprehensive approach to healthcare. Her practice philosophy employs the benefits of traditional medicine while also embracing its limitations. Dr. Latib has spent much of her free time over the course of her career studying functional medicine and integrative health while applying those practices to her life and with her patients in the ER daily. She has received her functional medicine training through the prestigious Institute of Functional Medicine, Institute for Integrative Women’s Health, as well as a mentorship with The Kalish Institute. She is passionate about creating a movement away from a sick-care model of medicine and towards one where disease is reversed and/or prevented.

Her evidence-based approach is aimed at re-igniting the body’s innate ability to heal itself and creating optimal conditions for health!
