Dr. Shalev tackles illnesses as a puzzle to solve—with respect for the whole health of the human being. She believes that symptom relief is important to get you functioning again, but for truly long-term healing to occur, the root cause must be found. Dr. Shalev looks at any particular symptom’s connection to the rest of your body and mind and believes that this truly holistic approach contributes to her success in caring for her patients.

While Dr. Shalev excels at treating complex, chronic illnesses (such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, and autoimmune conditions), she particularly loves endocrine system management for any and all genders. She is experienced in thyroid and adrenal conditions, menopause, insulin resistance, PCOS, testosterone replacement and transgender hormone management. Additionally, she is well versed in environmental medicine and detoxification, as well as in conditions affecting the brain, such as age-related cognitive decline, “brain fog” and adult ADD.

As a Naturopathic Medical Doctor, Dr. Shalev can prescribe pharmaceutical drugs, hormones, herbs and supplements, nutrition, homeopathy, and energetic medicine—and she often moves between these modalities depending on what works best for her patients. She is exceptionally skilled at utilizing advanced laboratory testing to illuminate the root cause of a patient’s symptoms but also finds that energetic testing (such as muscle testing/Applied Kinesiology/Autonomic Response Testing) can be helpful in providing treatment direction.

More than anything, Dr. Shalev enjoys helping people regain the vitality, energy, and clarity of mind that they have been missing.
