Dr. Sandra McCowen
Dr. McCowen received her medical degree from Michigan State University College of Human Medicine in 1999. She is also board certified in Family Medicine. After residency she attended the American Board of Holistic Medicine review course for several years and in 2010 she was certified in Integrative Medicine by the ABIHM.
Dr. McCowen started her health care journey as a Registered Nurse, and during her nursing career she became interested in lifestyle and natural supplements as a pathway to health. She has maintained this interest throughout her career and brings a great balance of care to the table at NatureMed. Being a part of the NatureMed team has been wonderful as it gives her a chance to use her integrative medicine skills to the full extent, as for most of her career she has worked in conventional medical settings.
Family is very important to Dr McCowen. she and her husband are grateful to live close to their two daughters and grandchildren.
We define integrative medicine as the marriage between naturopathic and conventional medicine. We are a full service clinic providing physical exams, and prescriptions in addition to all of the cutting edge non-conventional services. We offer evidence-based natural medicine, Complementary and Alternative Medicine (CAM), integrated care and a logical plan for the future.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is used to help treat symptoms of menopause, perimenopause, premature aging, osteoporosis and post-menopause.
This program has proven to be safe and effective in helping people lose weight. We have seen patients overall health improve as well, including lowering blood pressure, improving blood sugar levels, enhancing other hormone levels, and lowering cholesterol. Although this diet is very low in calories, our patients are rarely hungry or tired.
I am an M.D. and I work with my colleagues to make prescription approval, when necessary, an easy process.
