Coronavirus Update

Our office is open and ready to help you stay healthy! To protect you and our staff, we have some new policies.
  • If you are feeling well, you are welcome to come in for all of your medical needs.
  • All patients will be screened for fever upon entering the office.
  • All exam rooms will be thoroughly cleaned after each patient visit (we’ve always done this!)
  • If you feel ill or don’t want to come in, we can do a telemedicine appointment.
  • If you are concerned that you might have coronavirus, we can support you remotely, helping you get tested, answering questions, giving advice on supplements and home therapies, and helping you get admitted to a hospital should you need additional medical care.

Who We Are

The Integrative Medical Group of Irvine blends the best of conventional, naturopathic, and holistic medicine, providing comprehensive, integrative healthcare for women of all ages.

Integrative Medical Group of Irvine provide a wide range of services, including physical exams and annual women’s visits, acute and chronic care, and a full spectrum of preventive and wellness care.

Because coordinated care at one site provides the best opportunity for achieving optimal health, IMGI provides:

  • Comprehensive healthcare
  • Integrative gynecology
  • Complex disease diagnosis and management
  • Advanced testing
  • Anti-aging medicine
  • Aesthetics and skincare
  • Nutrition and fitness

Additional services include naturopathy, acupuncture, massage, and IV therapy.

We believe that…

A doctor and her patient are equal partners in health. As our patient, you should fully understand and consent to all recommended treatments.
The best treatment is the most natural, least toxic treatment. Many pharmaceuticals have terrible side effects. These powerful drugs should be last resorts, not first-line treatments.
Illnesses are usually interconnected. We want you to tell us about all of your symptoms so we can treat them together.
In many cases, the body can heal itself. Your body is designed to be healthy. If you give your body what it needs, it can usually heal all on its own.
The goal of medicine is optimal health, not tolerable illness. We want you to feel amazing.
Health is an ongoing journey. As you travel through life, we will be here for you.

Dr. Felice Gersh Interview

Dr. Gersh is the medical director of IMGI and is board-certified in Integrative Medicine and OB-GYN. She is a globally-renowned expert in women’s health and complex disease management.

Why do women live longer than men? Does the ability to bear children play a role and to what extent do evolutionary forces discriminate between men and women?

In this in-depth interview Dr. Gersh explains why she “had to unlearn” about half of everything she learned at medical school calls for a fundamental “shake-up” in the delivery of health care.

There is no greater honor and joy than being a warrior for my patients and helping them unleash their own self-advocacy powers. I’m so grateful for the role I played in @kaliwellness ‘s diagnosis and care and I am beyond thrilled that this story has a happy ending.

Almost exactly one year ago I was hospitalized for the first time since getting my tonsils out. In this picture I'm crying from excruciating pain. I assumed my appendix bursted.

I had just started getting really busy with work. Kali Wellness was picking up and we had become a third partner of @magnoliaorganicsalon in July of 2019. I started ordering @modelmeals because I was so busy at work and was forgetting to eat. My cell counts were already compromised at this point but I didn't know it yet. So when one of my @modelmeals came with undercooked chicken that had a bacteria called campylobacter in it, it sent me to the hospital. If my counts were normal I probably wouldn't of needed to be hospitalized, and just had a stomach ache for a few days. But I had no white blood cells, and no way to fight so the infection took a hold of me. In the midst of this Hoag was giving me the wrong antibiotics, with the infection getting worse.

This is first situation I really learned how to use my voice strongly. I was running around that hospital floor advocating for myself, and better treatment. Once we got the confirmation of the bacteria from the stool sample I researched the antibiotic I was on and realized it wasn't going to help me.

@dr.felicegersh is my gynecologist and luckily had Hoag access at the time. She gave me her cell phone number and demanded the attending physician call her. The Doctor at Hoag was literally jaw dropped I had my doctors cell phone number, and couldn't believe how helpful she was. She made them put me on the correct antibiotics and give me a bone marrow biopsy, which resulted in my correct diagnosis of Aplastic Anemia - complete bone marrow failure. They didn't know what was wrong with me so they just kept saying cancer over and over. I knew I didn't have cancer and was so disappointed by my experience at that hospital. Even one of t

So excited to join @livewellintegrative for an Instagram Live all about fasting and hormones!

Thanksgiving has come and gone and if you are like me you may have put on a few pounds from enjoying all the yummy food.

So it’s perfect timing to hop on with our colleague and friend @dr.felicegersh to chat about fasting and it’s unique implications for women.

Dr Felice Gersh is among the few physicians board certified in BOTH OB-GYN and Integrative Medicine. She is a globally recognized expert on women’s health and speaks regularly at conferences around the world. She is the bestselling author of #PCOS SOS.

Tomorrow the focus of our Q & A will be learning about the symphony of hormones in different stages of a woman’s life and how fasting can be a powerful tool to use if done correctly.

I have my list of questions ready to go. Things like :

1. What types of #fasting are there and why would you choose one over another

2. Is there a reason to fast if you are already at an ideal weight

3.What’s the best way to do #timerestrictedeating

4. What is the best time in the month to fast if you are premenopausal

5. What is the impact of declining #hormones during #perimenopause and #menopause. Why does it get harder to lose the weight as we age

6. Can fasting help PMS?

7. What is the impact of fasting on the immune system and is it safe to do during the pandemic

8. Can fasting help PCOS

And much more.

Let us know if you have any questions for Dr Gersh so we can make this a super high content efficient session.
So excited 💃🏻👏🥳

Taking a good prenatal vitamin is essential for the months leading up to pregnancy, the pregnancy itself, and the months or years of breastfeeding afterwards. Growing a baby requires extremely high levels of nutrients and most women cannot get everything that they and their baby need through diet alone.

I was happy to consult on this important article by @iamwellandgood.
