Dr. McLeod is currently pursuing her passion to focus on prevention and a healthy life style instead of disease by starting a pediatric integrative health practice in La Jolla, CA with a Pediatrician colleague. Her practice will focus on combining Ayurveda with traditional Western Medicine. The goal is to create a new model of collaboration for pediatric care by bringing together practitioners in many fields of healing to educate and nurture families along their journey to health. The practice will utilize the highest standards of conventional, complimentary and alternative medicine in a child-centered health model. The practice is dedicated to furthering evidenced-based research and education in the field of integrative pediatrics. Pacific Integrative Pediatric Health is scheduled to open early in 2020.
