Hello! I’m Kinder Fayssoux MD.
Physician Professor Wife Mother Daughter Sister Friend
So glad you are here. This site is about natural cures prescribed by MD’s for multiple chronic medical problems, low energy, and weight loss from an Integrative and Functional Medicine viewpoint. I started this site because in my clinical practice I can only see a handful of patients, but as multiple patients, friends, colleagues, and random people that ask me medical questions because they know I’m a doctor have said to me “how come none of my other doctors ever told me that?”
I am a conventionally trained Board Certified Family Medicine Physican. I also am board certified in Integrative Medicine and have the maximum certification available through the Institute for Functional Medicine.
Ohm & Oot Wellness Medicine
The Ohm and Oot Wellness Clinic of Rancho Mirage, California specializes in bio-identical hormones and personalized longevity genetic medicine, but offers full spectrum Functional and Integrative Medicine care. Dr Fayssoux is board certified in Family Medicine, Integrative Medicine and certified in Functional medicine as well.
She holds additional certifications for Advanced Hormonal Endocrinology through The American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine as well as genetic medicine training through both DNA Life as well as Genomix.
Core to Integrative and Functional medicine is getting to the root of your symptoms. Dr Fayssoux works with you to assess your health goals, order necessary labs, and present you with a plan to take back your health. We see multiple patients that come in because they know something is not right or they don’t feel 100%, but they have been told that there is nothing on their labs and that their physician has little to offer them.
As a conventionally trained physician herself, Dr. Fayssoux, can attest that prior to her getting Integrative and Functional medicine training she was not aware that there were other labs that can be ordered and other markers which can be explored. We offer deeper testing of hormones, adrenals, food sensitivities, and nutritional status. We can look at your genetics and help you decide the best diet and type of exercise for your body.
My Hormone Story
The Reason This Practice Exists
A lot of it was my own experiences as a woman and a mom trying to also have a career. It’s a story initially that I had heard from my patients, but it became mine. In my late 30s things just started to change; I was feeling tired all the time, exercise didn’t seem to help with weight, I had belly fat all of a sudden, and I felt constantly irritable. I recognized that I had a lot on my plate and being a mother of four was a lot of responsibility. I also knew I’d had a lot on my plate and been a mother for the previous 8 years and had not felt this and so that couldn’t be the whole story. Because of my background I was already doing a lot of the things that I know make a difference like meditation, eating right, exercising, but I just couldn’t get on top of it.
When I started to recognize how me feeling this way was affecting me being the mother and the wife that I wanted to be, was when I finally reached out to my physician. Long story short, my labs did not show anything wrong per conventional guidelines and so I went back to just trying to do more lifestyle changes. I wasn’t convinced though, so I continued to learn and did a lot of my own research and reading into bio identical hormones and one thing led to another and I started to work with a physician that could treat me, and slowly but surely I found myself feeling a little more like myself.
I can’t tell you how many women have experienced this same story and sought treatment with us and come out on the other side- Balanced.
But, don’t worry if hormones are not your issue- I got you too!
I have plenty of experience with Food Intolerances, Peptides, Autoimmunity, and Health/Cognitive/Performance Optimization.
Did I hear you say Longevity Medicine?
That’s my other favorite topic!

Food Sensitivity Testing
The IgG Food Antibody Assessment is a blood test that measures antibodies to 87 commonly consumed foods. The panel also includes a total IgE measurement. The body can react to foods in many different ways. Adverse food reactions can lead to distressing symptoms and chronic health conditions.
Functional Medicine is a systems biology–based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease. Each symptom or differential diagnosis may be one of many contributing to an individual’s illness.
We treat the whole body to cure the root cause of illness.
Genetic medicine is a very interesting field that is constantly advancing. We are able to offer patients a look into their own DNA and the unique code that they carry.
We offer the DNA Diet test, the DNA Sports test, the DNA Health test, and the DNA Mind test which looks at SNPs specific to risk for dementia and cognitive decline.
