Dr. Claudia Chica & Dr. Schoen

For 6 years I had the honor and the blessing of working in collaboration with a very dear friend, and one of my most influential Integrative Medicine mentors, Joya-Lynn Schoen, MD.

Dr. Schoen has been a caring, persistent, and passionate pioneer in the field of Integrative Medicine, Hormonal balancing, Functional Medicine and Anti-aging medicine.

After a prolific and fulfilling medical career helping thousands of patients regain their health, Dr. Schoen retired in the summer of 2016 and reunited with friends and family in California.

I am forever grateful for everything I shared and learned from Dr. Schoen and will further my commitment to being in grateful and joyful service to the community. It is a highly regarded privilege to continue empowering the patients to make safe, wise and informed decisions concerning the latest advances in natural healing, nutrition, rejuvenation, longevity resources and wellness.

I firmly believe that when addressing the body-mind connection and when given the right support, the body can and will move toward self-healing, self-regeneration and harmony.
