THE SPECTRA WELLNESS TEAM
In this day and age many people are searching for answers. Unfortunately traditional medicine doesn’t always have them. Traditional medicine is based on establishing a diagnosis and utilizing primarily medication to treat and control the issue. While this is needed in many scenarios such as acute infections, high blood pressure, etc. in many other conditions medications don’t help and can in fact worsen the symptoms. This was the boat I found myself in over 10 years ago.
As a teenager I was saved by traditional medication when I required 5 different years of intense chemotherapy for a form of leukemia.
I did relatively well with the treatment (other than heart issues from one of the meds) and was even able to get pregnant on my own. After the birth of my daughter I never bounced back and remained exhausted, developed recurrent sinusitis (required surgery), psoriasis, and Hashimotos thyroiditis. I went to a traditional endocrinologist, dermatologist, and ENT. None of the recommendations that they had were any different than what I was already doing and I felt no better. I had a newborn, busy husband, and a full practice of patients that needed my help. I had been exploring alternative/integrative medicine my whole career because I never understood WHY the focus of traditional medicine was on the symptoms and not the CAUSE.
When I was left without answers I decided to go out and find them myself.
I started attending seminars and got board certified in anti-aging and functional medicine and taught myself nutrition. I got exposed to alternative techniques such as applied kinesiology and orthogonal adjustments. What I found was that I started to improve! My energy, skin, and sinuses were better. I was also able to help all of my patients who had been stuck in the traditional medicine conundrum.
As my own quest for optimal health has continued I have created a village of healers in all of the modalities that have truly helped to heal me. The journey is a busy and fun one that I am thrilled to share with the world. Our signature program, The Koche Approach, is a 12 week complete body healing process that is a culmination of my 15 years of experience.
Best in health,
Dr. Lisa Koche

Dr. Lisa Saff Koche
Dr. Koche is triple boarded in Internal med, bariatrics, and alternative medicine.
Ever since her own exposure to the medical field due to childhood leukemia she has been focused on finding the CAUSE of issues instead of treating the symptoms. She attended Emory Medical School and completed her internal medicine residency at USF in Tampa. She started her practice focusing on preventing cardiovascular diseases and obesity. That experience led to further training in alternative medicine and nutrition and eventually a comprehensive clinic focusing on all aspects needed for total body healing. She has a team of gifted healers that all work together to create individualized treatment plans and has created a signature program, the Koche Approach, which is a 12 week comprehensive course to get patients optimally functioning on all levels.
She has lectured nationally, been featured on numerous television segments, and is almost finished with her first book.

Dr. Amanda Campbell, a native Texan, graduated from Parker University in Dallas, TX with her Doctorate of Chiropractic, Bachelor of Anatomy and Bachelor of Health and Wellness. She furthered her education in specific techniques, traveling throughout the country to learn from experts in their craft.
