In addition to her training in western medicine, Dr. Lansman studied herbal medicine at the Pacific School of Herbal Medicine and is experienced using homeopathic medicine and energy medicine techniques in her practice. Her focus is promoting wellness through proper nutrition and a balanced lifestyle, addressing the physical, emotional and spiritual dimensions of illness.
"Early on in my pediatric career I realized that the disease-focused care I was trained in did not fit my beliefs of how to best care for children, and that we needed a new model. Since that time my goal has been to create a model that is wellness-based. The knowledge of what is true health, combined with the insights I have gained through my own experience being a mother, guides me in my practice of medicine."
LINDY WOODARD, MD
A Board Certified Pediatrician, Lindy graduated from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1979. After completing her pediatric residency at Milwaukee Children’s Hospital in 1982, she raised her children Sam and Abby and practiced pediatrics in Milwaukee, WI, until moving to California in 1995.
A desire to learn another system of medicine led her to the Institute of Classical Homeopathy, where she completed course work in 2001. “I found my way to integrative medicine through my stomach. My love of food, a brother with celiac disease and a sensitive stomach sent me to my laboratory, the kitchen. I have always felt that food is medicine and can be the cause and cure for many childhood diseases such as allergies and eczema. I consider homeopathy, nutrition and gut health to be the framework for understanding wellness and curing disease.”

"Growing up in Marin, my mother used everything from homeopathy to Bach flower remedies to Ayurvedic dietary principles to keep us well. I
discovered early on the healing powers of many alternative systems of medicine from firsthand experience, so I always knew that I wanted to
practice in an integrated medical model. I chose to go to medical school so that I would have a broad knowledge base with which to evaluate and utilize other forms of medicine. I love having so many tools at my disposal to help the families I care for."
