1 PM – INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE: A TOOLKIT FOR HEALING MIND, BODY, SPIRIT – Ashley Maltz – Enlightenment Hall
As an Integrative Medicine expert, Dr. Maltz has seen hundreds of lives transformed through lifestyle changes over her 10+ years in practice. She will discuss her most effective tools for transformational healing in a fun, relaxed style.
Dr. Ashley Maltz was born and raised in Houston, TX, to immigrant parents who taught her the value of hard work, generosity and compassion for those who are less fortunate then her. She learned these lessons with hands-on work feeding the homeless, adopting endangered species and assisting her mother in charitable causes.
As she grew older, she transformed this passion for service in to a career that goes straight to the heart of others and truly helps them create a fulfilling, productive life. She wanted to transform the way people view health and wellness. She wanted them to fall in love with wellness the same way she had while in college and saw herself as a preventive medicine advocate.
She chose to go to medical school with the intention to focus on healing and helping people discover the root causes of disease.
Unfortunately, what she experienced in medical school and residency disillusioned her as she yearned to to prevent illness, not just treat it.
This yearning drove her to seek out additional studies in nutrition, mind/body medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Ayurveda, Native American healing and Western herbalism, after residency. These Integrative Medicine modalities are safe, effective and evidence-based.
And this is what she practices at West Holistic Medicine in downtown Austin.
She blends the best of Western medicine with a penchant for Eastern medicine and philosophy. To her, no rock goes unturned when seeking out the best and most effective treatments for patients.
Having suffered from chronic pain, depression, lifelong anxiety and often debilitating fatigue, she knows what’s missing in allopathic medicine and she’s on a mission to change it.
After Dr. Maltz earned a Medical Degree and Master in Public Health from the University of Texas Medical Branch (UTMB) in Galveston, TX, she completed a combined Internal and Preventive Medicine Residency at UTMB. She then pursued and completed a 2-year Integrative Medicine Fellowship at Stamford
Hospital in Stamford, Connecticut.
During her Fellowship, she underwent clinical training in Medical Acupuncture, trigger point injections, meditation, spirituality, clinical nutrition, mind-body therapies, botanicals and herbs, as well as an intensive 1000-hour online curriculum created by The University of Arizona Integrative Medicine Program founded by Dr. Andrew Weil. During this time, she also completed a 300-hour Medical Acupuncture course through the State University of New York (SUNY) Downstate.
Dr. Maltz’s specific interests include helping her patients improve their health through lifestyle interventions including, but not limited to, eastern medical
practices, nutrition, botanicals, mind-body techniques and decreasing environmental exposures.
She is a practitioner of Peggy Huddleston’s “Prepare for Surgery, Heal Faster” program – a guided imagery technique clinically proven to decrease pre-surgical anxiety and post-surgical use of pain medications as well as decrease healing time of all types of surgeries – and the Mindfulness Based Eating Awareness Training (MB-EAT) program created by Jean Kristeller, PhD.
She spent the last year of her four-year medical residency participating in health policy, cancer prevention and environmental health rotations and most recently spent two years living in Albuquerque, NM, working as an Assistant Professor at the University of New Mexico’s School of Medicine.
Dr. Maltz is a member of the Texas Medical Association and the American College of Lifestyle Medicine, for which she served on the Board of Directors from 2013 – 2015. She is a proud graduate of the University of Texas at Austin where she received her undergraduate degree in Psychology with a minor in Biology.
In her recreational time, she enjoys spending time with friends and family, practicing yoga, meditation, dancing, hiking, cooking healthfully and exploring the world through travel and cultural exchange.
She is passionate about social justice, environmental restoration and creating healthful lifestyle change for patients and healthcare workers alike. In August 2016, she hosted an advocacy event at the Texas State Capital to bring awareness to the epidemic of medical student and physician suicide and in September, 2017, she joined a virtual rescue operation in SE Texas for Hurricane Harvey relief work.
Most of all, she enjoys being a force for change in the world.
