Magdalena Kerschner was only 12 years old when her family left Poland for the United States. Her father,
a physician, made the courageous decision to flee the country which remained under Soviet influence
through the late 1980’s.
Excited for new opportunities following years of economic and political oppression, Magdalena studied hard, learning English quickly. A voracious reader and an excellent student, it wasn’t long before she would follow in her father‘s footsteps, earning her M.D. from Wayne State University School of Medicine, Detroit, MI in 1987.
Dr. Kerschner completed residencies in Internal Medicine at Detroit Medical Center, Detroit, MI as well as Anesthesiology at both Michael Reese Hospital, Chicago, IL and in 1996 completed her residency in Anesthesiology at University of Kentucky Hospital in Lexington, KY.
Choosing to focus on making a difference in the lives of others, Dr. K (as she is commonly known) observed countless patients suffering from advanced chronic pain and illnesses as an anesthesiologist. Many of these conditions could have been reversed or averted had someone intervened, showing patients alternative and preventative lifestyle options sooner. With a passion to provide a “road map” early on, Dr. K wanted to educate and empower individuals with making healthier choices leading to wellness not illness. She was already a leader in the field of interventional pain management to mitigate addiction to opioids and Heroin. Targeting common patient complaints and symptoms, which she too experienced, Dr. K researched the possibility of a connection between low energy, depression, insomnia, weight gain, lack of interest in sex, inability to perform sexually, moodiness etc.
Collectively known as the life force needed to fuel one’s “Mojo” as the movie character, Austin Powers described it.
Using evidence-based research, Dr. K discovered many of these symptoms were connected to hormonal imbalances and lifestyle choices in men and women at various stages in life. She tailored treatments to each individual.
