Dr. Koperski’s Philosophy
“Healing is about integrating all parts, truly reconnecting you to your body as part of the whole on your journey towards optimal health. My focus is to determine the underlying cause(s) of your symptoms and treat with natural therapeutics, while empowering you to take an active part in your healing process. We’ll work together to build a strong foundation that includes diet and lifestyle choices, supporting it with botanical, physical, and mind-body medicines.”
What Makes Dr. Koperski Different
Having gone through her own struggle with complex illness and autoimmunity, Dr. Koperski recognizes that symptoms which have not been attributed to a specific disease process are real and need to be explored more thoroughly.
Dr. Koperski will sometimes look for answers in places not typically considered – looking for the cause of the cause, the underlying piece that has manifested as the patients’ symptom picture. To uncover such sources, she starts by closely listening to the patient’s story. Frequently, explanations arise during the conversation that lay initial groundwork on where the healing process might best begin.
An intrinsic desire for knowledge has been the driving force in Dr. Koperski’s medical career. A pursuit of knowledge that grants her access to an in-depth understanding of complicated illnesses and how to best tailor treatment plans. Her passion for learning is something Dr. Koperski readily shares with her patients, empowering them with a complete understanding of their condition.
