Dr Teets’ interests in Integrative Medicine and current practice have root in his life prior to medical school. He grew up on a farm in rural Ohio, where his parents raised vegetables and goats. In addition, he worked at an organic farm during his summers. His parents were also both teachers, and taught science and nursing. Dr. Teets pursued philosophy in college, at DePaul University, in Chicago, and graduated with a B.A. in Philosophy. His experiences nurtured in him an interest in nutritional approaches to health, as well as an appreciation for teaching. Dr. Teets also maintains an interest in philosophy, as he works to investigate how medicine and the healing arts are affected by the histories of science, medicine, and knowledge.
