MEET THE DOCTOR
Dr. Sara Chong, DC, FMP
Dr. Sara Chong has dedicated herself towards helping people lead healthier lives by addressing the root causes to their problems and not just their symptoms. Combining her knowledge of Functional Medicine, Chiropractic, Korean whole foods nutrition, and Lifestyle Coaching, she has developed an integrative approach to heal gut disorders.
Being Korean-American, Dr. Sara grew up eating and loving traditional Korean foods which later inspired her to learn more about all the healing benefits these traditional recipes had. Dr. Sara specializes in healing the gut through eating nutrient-dense and delicious whole foods and lifestyle practices. She is passionate about helping other's heal one gut at a time through nourishing their guts to fuel their brains and bodies. Dr. Sara had suffered for so long with debilitating and undiagnosed IBS. She lived with chronic constipation, bloating, allergies, brain fog, weight gain, mood instability, edema, and PMS to name a few! In 2004, she was introduced to a "new form of medicine": Chiropractic Kinesiology and Functional Medicine. Within these methodologies, Dr. Sara began to learn how real food (unprocessed/chemical-free), healing herbs/supplements, proper hydration and movement were the fundamental factors to LIFE. Adding these foundational principles into her life, resolved her chronic symptoms! Looking back at her journey, undoubtedly motivated her to pursue a career to help as many people as possible suffering from the same pain.
When she isn’t in the office, Dr. Sara enjoys spending time in the kitchen creating delectable gut-friendly Korean dishes with her family. She also enjoys traveling and loves learning about different cultures and traditions. Her love of food and travel inspired her to attend California Culinary Academy where she not only cooked and devoured gourmet dishes, but also learned to appreciate the history and evolution behind every dish from all parts of the world. She is the ultimate "Clinic to Kitchen" doc!
Our mission is to balance and modulate the foundational pillars of health by addressing the underlying root cause to chronic gut issues and restoring natural health and vitality. Working together through a patient-doctor partnership, patients will receive the tools and support to improve their gut health so they can take control of their health and finally live an extraordinary life without anything holding them back!
