Katherine Igah-Phillips, MD, MHA
Dr. Katherine Igah-Phillips works within the realm of Integrative Medicine as a Holistic Wellness Coach. As owner of both her holistic wellness educational platform and blog (Returning to Nature, LLC), and her Atlanta-based Integrative Medicine practice (Mind Body Spirit Wellness Center), she has nationally and internationally impacted, empowered and coached on the importance of mental, spiritual, and physical balance.
Dr. Igah-Phillips was born and raised in the inner city of Dayton, OH by two Nigerian visionaries (Dr. Frank and Dr. Flora Igah). It was their passion for education, success and living a purpose-driven life that cultivated and shaped Dr. Igah-Phillip’s personality and character. This led to the solidification of her interest in health and wellness by the time she was in Junior High. From the age of 12, she began spending large portions of her summer vacations volunteering at local hospitals and clinics to confirm this interest in medicine.
Dr. Igah-Phillips began her journey to becoming a doctor at Kent State University, obtaining a Bachelor of Arts in the concentrations of Biology, Pre-Medicine/Chemistry, and Psychology. She went on to complete her Master’s Degree at Walden University, in the concentration of Healthcare Administration, graduating in the top five percentile of her class. Dr. Igah-Phillips ventured on to complete her Medical Degree at Xavier University School of Medicine, where she again graduated with honors (Suma Cum Laude and President’s List).
While in medical school, Dr. Igah-Phillips was confronted by the excessive emphasis on the use of side effect-ridden pharmaceuticals to manage disease. This was also coupled with an alarming absence of addressing the underlying cause of the patient’s ailment, rather than merely silencing symptoms. Immediately upon graduation, she began exploring the world of natural medicine through about 5 years of mind-altering post-graduate training in Integrative and Holistic Medicine. Dr. Igah-Phillips also pursued further life transformational work through Landmark Education, with the completion of their Curriculum for Living and 12-week Integrity Seminar.
As a result of this extensive training, Dr. Igah-Phillips is responsible for founding Returning to Nature, LLC. in the Spring of 2013, and assuming 100% ownership of Mind Body Spirit Wellness, Inc. in the Summer of 2017. With a rapidly growing following, Dr. Igah-Phillips demands a change in the way we view healthcare forever, empowering everyone to live lives that they truly love!
