Dr. Kather's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Kather "Because of my own struggles over a decade ago with fatigue, I became interested in Metabolic Medicine. Hypothyroidism, hormone imbalances, issues of energy are my specialty as these are all concerns for my life also. I am board certified in Family Medicine and anti-aging medicine and furthered my studies in functional medicine. I am married to nutritional biochemist, Stephen Cherniske, a brilliant man that directed the first FDA licensed nutrition and immunology laboratory. We co-authored the book "The Metabolic Makeover: It's all about Energy" and it receives rave reviews. Thousands of people have already benefited from the science-based principles presented in this book. It is also available in Kindle, CD audio and MP3 format. Please read it or listen to it if you want a better idea about the health approach I use. The Advanced Family Wellness team is excited to assist you in your journey for better quality of life and better energy each day!"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Kather "The human body has an amazing capacity for repair. Each day, your body makes over 300 billion new cells. The state of those cells depends upon only 2 major forces in the body: damage and repair. How you treat your body, feed it, exercise, and replenish repair signals will determine what those new cells will be like: healthier or weaker than their predecessors. At Advanced Family Wellness, we want to help you have a better quality of life by optimizing the message of "REPAIR!" and minimizing the message of damage."

Dr Kather's agenda seems to make as much money off the patient through selling her products, ordering numerous tests and overprescribing medicine. I was on a huge amount of progesterone and estrogen. Now I am dealing with getting fibroids often. Her office staff is also rude. I would not...more

I have been a patient for over 8 years. Dr Kather has helped me tremendously with my health. Her personality is rigid and she doesn't listen very well. Her prices are very high and she does seem to want to do more tests, more this and that. It is very expensive. I did recommend a friend to her and...more

I started having heart palpitations, and I called her...more
