About the Host: Macy Mathew

In 2020, after a series of events, I was diagnosed with POTS (Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome), attributed to post-COVID/Long-hauler syndrome. When traditional medicine failed to provide me with complete answers, I knew integrative/functional medicine would ultimately lead to me gaining my life back. I got connected with a provider in my area that introduced me to a side of medicine I knew existed, but never fully understood. 

A passion ignited inside of me throughout my own healing journey and I knew I wanted to be apart of something greater. I knew I wanted to help others know this side of medicine and get integrated on a deeper level, outside of my prior experience of being an Occupational Therapist. I began my career with Ortho Molecular Products in 2022 as an Account Executive. This role has allowed me to connect with many providers and assist them and their patients on how to navigate their own healing journeys. 

My hope and vision for this group is to bring a community of providers together to support each other and continue to transform the practice of medicine!
