A New Take On Health

Dr. Burkhart is the only physician in the U.S. who is also a registered dietitian and board-certified in integrative medicine. She approaches problems from a unique perspective using traditional medicine, nutrition, and integrative medicine. When asked what she does for a living, she often replies, ” In my office, I help people struggling for answers, as well as those looking for a different type of health care. Outside of the office, I write about topics that address health in ways others may not have.”


Areas Of Special Interest

Gut Health / Chronic Digestive Problems

Bloating, reflux/heartburn, nausea and other chronic stomach problems can be challenging. Gut health affects immune function, mental health, weight control, heart health and more.


Stands for Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth. It causes bloating, fatigue, brain fog, and other symptoms. It often goes undiagnosed and is increasingly common. It can also accompany histamine intolerance

Celiac Disease

Dr. Burkhart is an expert on celiac disease, an autoimmune condition affecting 1 in 100 people. If affected, eating gluten causes long term health complications. Eighty percent of people with celiac disease do not know they have it. Click here for a free article to take to your provider to educate them on celiac disease.

Gluten Sensitivity

Dr. Burkhart is a specialist in gluten-related disorders. These occur in people who don’t have celiac disease but get sick from eating gluten. These are even more common than celiac disease. A free article I wrote can be printed and taken to your provider to educate them on gluten sensitivity and other gluten/wheat-related disorders.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Prolonged episodes of diarrhea and/or constipation are often labeled as IBS. There is frequently an undiagnosed, underlying reason for these ongoing symptoms.

Histamine Intolerance

 Histamine intolerance (HIT) is a condition that many feel is underrecognized. For those suffering from HIT, the low histamine diet is the primary treatment. The low histamine diet is being used to treat problems such as rashes, headaches, bloating, and long-haul COVID-19 symptoms.
