Practitioner Sara AlRawi

Sara’s initial exposure to traditional medicine began when she was a young girl watching her grandmother care for the whole family with fresh, seasonal and wholesome cooking, and listening to stories of how her grandmother prepared tea from herbs she collected in the market or those growing in her backyard. Her fascination and intrigue with traditional systems of medicine coupled with her studies of psychology led her to Naturopathic medicine. Sara received her naturopathic doctorate from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in 2004, and Masters of Public Health from the University of Michigan also in 2004, with an emphasis in Human Nutrition and Reproductive and Women’s Health.

  • Practitioner Jesse Ozimek
Practitioner Jesse Ozimek

Jesse’s passion for Traditional Chinese Medicine and the healing arts was ignited by her
brother’s lengthy and pernicious struggle with Lyme disease. When he contracted the
disease her family spent years working with the medical community to address it with
little success. Her brother’s condition spiraled downward; no one knew how to help.
The disease nearly took him.

      • Office Manager Megan Zakar
      Office Manager Megan Zakar

      Megan’s love for traditional medicine was introduced and influenced by her elder family members. The garden was the medicine cabinet growing up. From a very early age Megan felt empathic and intuitive. She often took roles as leader and caretaker into young adulthood before embarking on her own self-discovery.

      Megan obtained a BA in Psychology at Michigan State University. Following her undergraduate she attended a two-year Naturopathic program in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  With a strong belief in the mind-body connection, or psychosomatic conditions, she was naturally drawn to nutrition, herbalism, and energy work.  She believes with improving emotional intelligence and overall awareness, while strengthening the connection and wellness to the physical body wondrous healing can happen! Believing that lifestyle changes, along side intellectually working through old thought patterns, you can retrain the brain and body into balance and harmony.

      Working with Dr. Lu has been an absolute dream come true! It is the exact mentoring and training Megan has been looking for to carry with her for a lifetime. She feels blessed and much gratitude for the clinic and each practitioner, as well as the clientele.
