"Dr. Porter has received the best training available in integrative medicine," stated Dr. Andrew Weil. "I consider her fully prepared to go out in the world and help transform the practice of medicine and healthcare in the directions consumers want," he said.

Board-certified in General Preventive Medicine and Integrative Holistic Medicine, Dr. Porter serves as the Director of Women's Health at The Chopra Center for Wellbeing in Carlsbad, California. She is also certified in medical acupuncture, Ayurveda, and Healing Touch therapy. For more than 15 years, she has helped thousands find relief and healing from conditions including chronic pain, heart disease, cancer, stress disorders, depression, chronic fatigue, headaches, and weight issues. Before coming to The Chopra Center, Dr. Porter served as a physician and researcher at La Jolla Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine.

"For a long time, my goal has been to practice medicine in a way that supports the patient and not the health industry. The research and clinical care I completed for my Integrative Medicine Fellowship dovetails perfectly with my daily work with patients at The Chopra Center, which also offers a truly holistic healing approach," said Dr. Porter.

"In contrast with conventional medicine, which generally focuses on symptom relief, we work with patients to get to the root cause of an illness so that healing can take place at the deepest level," she said.

Dr. Porter's integrative medical consultations are available for weekly guests of The Chopra Center's Perfect Health wellness program, daily out- patients, and visitors to The Chopra Center in Carlsbad, California.
