Call in to speak with the host
Dr. Martha Calihan has practiced Family Medicine for more than 20 years, during which time her interests and her practice have gradually evolved into a holistic, integrative approach to medicine. She is licensed to practice acupuncture and is also trained in both Mind-Body Medicine and Functional Medicine.
Dr. Calihan graduated from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 1982 and then completed her residency in Family Medicine at the Fairfax Family Practice Center, in Fairfax, Virginia, where she served as chief resident. After completing her residency, she served as a faculty member at the residency until she moved to Leesburg-Sterling Family Practice in 1990.
Dr Calihan studied acupuncture at the UCLA School of Medicine program with Dr Joseph Helms. In 1997, she trained with Dr Jim Gordon at the Center for Mind-Body Medicine center in Washington, DC, and was subsequently a preceptor at his program for training health care professionals in Mind-Body Medicine skills. In 2000, Dr. Calihan was Board Certified in Holistic Medicine.
It is from this learned background that Dr. Calihan has come to practice Integrative Medicine; a field for which she has great passion. It is in the practice of Integrative Medicine that she is able to combine modalities from multiple traditions of medicine, and in so doing, approach each patient from a unique vantage point and develop a personalized plan with them for their optimal health and well being.
Today she joins us to shed light on the issue of Insomnia and Sleep Disturbance during Menopause and provide effective, all natural treatment options!
It's good to talk.
