Welcome to Simple Medicine!
I’m Dr. Pragati Gusmano. I’m a Functional Medicine Doctor and I like to think that I practice lifestyle medicine. As a naturopathic doctor, I offer an alternative perspective on conventional healthcare and my approach emphasizes identifying the root cause of illness, eliminating nutritional deficiencies and the preventing disease and illness through diet and lifestyle modifications. I believe that living a simple, happy and healthy life is the best medicine.
Over the years this blog has evolved in many ways. I like to share snippets of my life and integrate my medical perspective along the way. I recently had my first baby, so expect to read about motherhood, medicine and my healthyish lifestyle.
I earned my doctorate from Bastyr University in Seattle, Washington, my Master’s degree in Communications from The University of Central Florida, and my undergraduate degree in Anthropology from Rutgers University in New Jersey. I share my life with my husband, our three rescue dogs and our son. My husband is from Michigan and I grew up in Central Florida. Collectively we have lived in many places; Orlando, Florida is our home now and we absolutely love being so close to our family and friends.
Thanks for stopping by!
