Katherine Erlich MD – Healing The Whole Child

Dr. Erlich takes a practical and individualized approach to pediatric care that focuses on the principles of health, wellness, and the safe resolution of illness. She is dedicated to integrating treatments that use natural methods to stimulate healing, recover balance, and support the body’s own resilience.

Her holistic approach emphasizes the necessity of looking at the whole person— the body, mind, and environment—rather than at an isolated function, organ or symptom, with the ultimate goal being to correct the underlying cause of illness rather than just treat the symptoms.

Dr. Erlich promotes the use of a wide range of health practices and therapies, with conventional medicine being just one part of many available modalities.
