This week host Laura Reagan, LCSW-C revisits a past interview with guest Dr. Leslie Korn, who has been interviewed previously on the show. You might remember that last week we heard a replay of the interview with Dr. Jodie Skillicorn, a holistic and integrative psychiatrist. If you liked that conversation, you’ll want to listen to this!

In our interview, you’ll hear Leslie speak about using integrative nutrition, including herbs, for optimal emotional and physical wellbeing. She is the author of 9 books, including her most recent book, Natural Woman.  

Leslie E Korn, PhD, MPH, LMHC, is a renowned integrative medicine clinician and educator specializing in the use of nutritional, herbal, and culinary medicine for the treatment of trauma and emotional and chronic physical illness. She completed her graduate education in psychiatry and public health at Harvard Medical School and her life training in the jungles of Mexico, where she lived and worked alongside local healers for more than 25 years. 

Leslie introduced somatic therapies for complex trauma patients in outpatient psychiatry at Harvard Medical School in 1985. She is the author of nine books including, Rhythms of Recovery: Trauma, Nature and the Body,, the seminal book on the body and complex trauma, Nutrition Essentials for Mental Health; The Good Mood Kitchen; and her most recent book, Natural Woman: Herbal Remedies for Radiant Health at Every Age and Stage of Life. She was a Fulbright Scholar and an NIH-funded scientist in mind-body medicine. She is also the director of the Center for Traditional Medicine, a project of cwis.org.
