206: Allergenuity with Dr. Nikhila Schroeder
Just because others think your way is wrong, doesn’t mean that’s true. Dr. Nikhila Schroeder and her husband opened their clinic, Allergenuity Health, with no lack of skepticism coming at them from all sides. They were determined, however, and now they have a loyal customer base and a business that feels right.
Nikhila has been working in the medical field for over a decade and knows that it can be better. She and her husband started Allergenuity Health to change how we approach immunology and workplace practices, and it’s working.
Their approach has helped hundreds of patients of all ages experience fewer and fewer symptoms related to allergies. It has not been an easy road, but it has been extremely rewarding.
Listen as she shares some of her beliefs on patient care and the role of medicine in our everyday lives. Additionally, she gives us a deep dive into why she’s looking for alternatives to immunology beyond injections and daily pills.
As a chronic allergy sufferer I was extremely excited to get to speak with Nikihla and I definitely learned some things. Listen in and see if you can apply her experience to your life and practice.
