Meet Iva Lim Peck of Integrated Center For Oriental Medicine in Plano
Today we’d like to introduce you to Iva Lim Peck.
Iva Lim, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I was born in Singapore. At the age of one month, we moved to Malaysia. We grew up in poverty in a third world country. There were eight of us and thinking back now, I don’t know how our mother did it and how she managed to feed us with all natural, healthy foods. What seem to be the fad today, like bone broth and organic foods were our normal diet. The healthy nutrients we had were from our home or local grown vegetables, eggs, good cuts of bones and organ meats, which were the cheapest sources of protein.
Growing up, I remember my mother would give us different natural remedies. I had no clue why, until I studied Chinese medicine. There were many that I still endorse in my own life as well as for my patients.

Younger kids can perceive their caretakers’ stress and older kids are better aware of what’s going on for their families and in the world around them. As we navigate our own stress each day, it can be hard to know how to protect children from theirs.
Traditional Chinese Medicine can support you in doing so, maybe lightening your personal load in the process. continue reading
