Dr. Mielke is the founder of Optimal Health Spectrums clinic. Dr. Mielke graduated from the Indiana University School of Medicine, and did her Psychiatry residency at UCLA’s Neuropsychiatric Institute, where she became board certified in the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology. She has done extensive training on anti-aging medicine through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M).
Dr. Mielke’s interest in Integrative Medicine started years ago when her youngest son was diagnosed with Autism and she realized that the standard medical approach was not useful. She then started going to Integrative Autism conferences and founded the Developmental Spectrums clinic to treat autistic children.
Later, when she started having troublesome symptoms of age-related hormonal decline that her doctors brushed off, did not know how to treat, and told her she would just have to accept, she began going to adult anti-aging and wellness Integrative Medicine conferences as well, and founded the Optimal Health Spectrums clinic. Dr. Mielke goes to anti-aging, bioidentical hormone, and wellness medical conferences every year and is now part of one of the fastest growing medical specialties in the world.
Dr. Mielke has discovered that these effective medical treatments improve both mental and physical health, and are unfortunately not well known by most doctors. She knows that it is impossible to have a deficiency of a prescription drug, but it is very possible to have a medical imbalance or deficiency that can be corrected with natural treatments most of the time. She has learned that achieving optimal mental and physical health goes beyond just medicating symptoms, and often requires testing for and treating chronic underlying toxicities, immune problems, hidden infections, nutritional deficiencies, bioidentical hormone deficiencies, and more. When these underlying health issues are addressed, most patients experience dramatic improvements in their health and quality of life, and are often able to get off of many of their prescription medications – all of which have more potentially toxic side-effects than most people are aware of.
Dr. Mielke has given numerous talks to parent and doctor groups, has trained several other practitioners on Integrative Medicine, networks frequently with other top Integrative Medicine doctors around the country, constantly researches new effective treatments, and has been interviewed extensively in the media, including local and national newspapers and television. Helping her patients reach optimal health is her personal and professional mission.
