A new outlook on personal health.
After more than two decades of practicing conventional primary care medicine, Dr. Cathy Kim gradually developed a more root-cause approach for addressing patients' medical problems. In 2017 she attended the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) Annual Conference and found resonance with the compelling lectures of renowned scientists like Dr. Jeffrey Bland, Dr. David Perlmutter, Dr. Joseph Pizzorno and Dr. Dale Bredesen. Discovering the Functional Medicine principles of the IFM accelerated Dr. Kim's evolution as an integrative-thinking physician. Using her knowledge of body mechanics and organ systems to understand pain and other chronic conditions, she founded Integrative Body Medicine (IBM). In her practice, she provides insights and education to help patients learn how to heal themselves with clean nutrition and practical exercises.
