The Spectra Wellness Team
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 approach is outlined in my first book, GET LIT. The journey is a busy and fun one that I am thrilled to share with the world.
Best in health,
Dr. Lisa Koche
Lisa Saff Koche, MD

Ever since her own exposure to the medical field due to childhood leukemia and heart failure from chemo, 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.
