Her primary areas of interest are digestive health (the root of all wellness!), mental health, pregnancy and children, the stress-sleep continuum and all of the hormonal imbalances that are at play there (adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, pancreas, pineal gland, and even liver), women's health from PMS to menopause, and immune balance (allergies, auto-immune disorders, immune fortitude). In her practice, Dr. Wile uses diet and lifestyle changes, supplements, herbs, prescriptions, acupuncture, Bowen therapy, NET (Neuro Emotional Technique), biotherapeutic drainage as needed to address health concerns in her patients. When not in practice she is a full-time, hands-on mum to her 6-year-old son (a former 26-week preemie and NICU alumni!) and 2-year-old daughter.
