What sets TRUE Medicine Apart
I started TRUE Medicine not really knowing what to expect. I finished the program with so much more than I anticipated. I feel like I have allies, I have support and I have resources that I know are trustworthy because I had the opportunity to talk and listen to Dr. Payrovi and the health coach.”
Angela RM, California
It was so nice to be in a group of people who get what it’s like to have MS who are all having their experiences and share stories of overcoming and providing support. Dr. Susan and the health coach are amazing, insightful, generous with their time, and provide very useful feedback on how to improve what you’re already doing.”

Your TRUE Medicine Team
So glad you're here!
When I was diagnosed with MS after the birth of my first child, I was overwhelmed. I wanted to take back control and improve my health, but I didn’t know where to start. I researched integrative medicine to expand upon my conventional medicine training. What I found changed my life.
These evidence-based lifestyle strategies are centered around one key concept: if you want to improve your health, you must to create a healthy environment. While there is so much about MS we cannot control, we can optimize our diet with nutrient-dense foods, improve the quality of our sleep, practice better stress management, and gather with supportive, like-minded people. When I implemented these lifestyle changes, I soon experienced improvement in my symptoms and overall health. As I have maintained these habits, these changes have been long lasting.
Better health is within reach for all of us who live with MS. I want to share True Medicine with you so you too can reclaim your health and get back to being you!
