Dr. McSwain considers herself a partner in health for her patients. She is a Doctor of Osteopathy with residency training in Obstectrics and Gynecological Surgery. She began focusing her practice on wellness medicine with an emphasis on age management. She has received training from the Institute for Functional Medicine as well as the American Association of Anti-Aging Medicine.
A large emphasis in her practice is using Osteopathic Manual Medicine (OMM) to realign the body. Improving one’s function comes from adjustments to one’s form. She has a keen understanding of how the body’s systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others, promoting healing and increasing overall mobility.
Dr. McSwain received her undergraduate at Arizona State University. She attended Midwestern University College of Osteopathic Medicine. Now, she serves the communities of Lansing and Grand Rapids as a Functional Medicine Doctor and Functional Gynecologist.
Dr. McSwain recognizes that optimal health is different for everyone, so she takes the time to know and fully understand her patients and how their bodies function individually. This ensures that each health plan is specifically designed for the individual patient.
She is committed to identifying the unique underlying causes of disease and treating them with the best diagnostic tools and technologies from conventional medicine, as well as emerging tests and toold that help to identify critical imbalances that are the root of all illness. She believes in patient-centered, not disease-centered, medicine.
