Dr. Rashmi Mullur is an integrative endocrinologist leading practices at UCLA and the VA in Los Angeles. She works with David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA curricular faculty, chairs a course in endocrinology for first-year medical students, and leads UCLA Health Integrative Medicine Collaborative as its education director. Dr. Mullur pioneered clinical programs using integrative medicine techniques for the management of chronic disease and she is recognized as a national leader on the use of integrative medicine for patients with diabetes.
The focus of her practice is in fully integrating Eastern and Western approaches to clinical care, using teachings from yoga, TCM, Ayurveda, and other modalities to truly connect mind and body in the treatment of endocrine disorders such as diabetes, thyroid disorders, stress management, and fatigue – often referring to acupuncturists, movement specialists, and other practitioners to complement her work.
In this podcast, Dr. Mullur shares her experiences with patients living with chronic stress and fatigue, how she manages as a special-needs parent, and her integrative approach to treating stress, fatigue, pain, and addiction.
