Show Notes Episode 38 – Dr. Keesha Ewers:
The Sex Doctor

Yet, when we want to treat any problems related to sex, most doctors routinely prescribe hormones and drugs without digging deeper for real answers.
Dr. Keesha Ewers talks intimately about her journey that began as a quest to find answers to her rheumatoid arthritis at age 30, eventually leading her to the world of integrative medicine and becoming a renowned expert in sexology in this very special Living 4D episode.
