About Dr. Gersh

After receiving my medical degree from the USC School of Medicine, I studied Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Kaiser Hospital in Los Angeles, where I was awarded the CREOG award as the top resident every year. Soon after graduating I became Board-Certified, and over the following years as a practicing OB/GYN, I developed a unique take on women’s healthcare.

From the beginning of my career, my approach to medicine has been inclusive, which is why I have always incorporated treatments rarely found within the confines of conventional American medicine.

I followed my interest in holistic approaches to healing, and graduated from the two-year Fellowship in Integrative Medicine at the University of Arizona.

My primary job is Director of the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, which focuses on understanding women’s innate physical and emotional make-up. Through my research, using state-of-the-art procedures and technology, I have come to understand that women have an internal natural rhythm.

This rhythm is affected by hormones, namely estrogen, and may be kept in balance through both conventional and holistic treatments. While pharmaceuticals deal with symptoms, they can also disrupt the body’s natural ability to heal and affect women’s reproductive functions.

At the Integrative Medical Group of Irvine, we help our patients understand what drugs can and can’t do for the body to enable them to take control of their health.

Outside of my practice, I speak at various lectures, host webinars and appear on numerous podcasts. I’m a prolific writer on numerous topics relevant to women’s health.

I am also currently writing my first book, on PCOS, which is due to be released in the fall. My goal is to provide the very best care for my patients, using every tool available, and to teach doctors around the world about the importance of creating a healthy environment within the female body.

I’m very proud to have been recognised for my work. I have been awarded the Orange County Medical Association’s ‘Physician of the Year’ Award for the last 13 years consecutively, and Southern California’s ‘SuperDoctor’ Award for the last several years.

In my role as a physician teacher, I served as Assistant Clinical Professor of OB/GYN at Keck USC School of Medicine for 12 years, for which I was awarded the Outstanding Volunteer Clinical Faculty Award.

I also serve my medical community, and have been active in organized medicine; I have served on the Legislative Committee at the Orange County Medical Association and as a delegate to the California Medical Association numerous times.

Tune in today at 1:00PM for my Women and Fasting IG Live Series. We are going to talk about the most powerful form of fasting, the prolonged fast, and my favorite variation, the fasting mimicking diet. I'll tell you why this form of fasting has the potential to improve a variety of metabolic markers and truly prolong healthspan.

Join me today to learn about overnight fasting. This is the simplest form of fasting that virtually everyone can do. In fact, if you sleep, you are already doing it, but if you aren't doing it right, you aren't getting the amazing benefits. I'll be discussing when you should eat, when you should fast, and how extending your overnight fast can dramatically improve your health. I'll also share a bunch of tips for fasting longer overnight without feeling hungry.. Today, Friday, June 26 at 1:00PM

I love tea so much and many teas have a wide range of health benefits. One tea you might consider adding to your routine is thyme tea. If you've never had it, it is delicious. I was so happy to contribute to this article by @iamwellandgood on one of my favorite topics.
