“I sincerely believe that when there is a will there is a way. If you have the will to change to a healthier lifestyle and feel better, that’s half the battle. Are you ready for change? My goal is to help you feel your best, so you can enjoy your family and loved ones with a healthy lifestyle and no chronic ailments.” – Erika Bradshaw, M.D.
Erika Bradshaw, M.D.
Originally from Los Angeles, Dr. Bradshaw was raised in a holistic environment. After completing medical school, she was eager to find other ways to treat patients. “I attended an ACAM (American College for the Advancement of Medicine) conference and the rest was history.” Dr. Bradshaw has been practicing in the Tampa Bay area since 2003 and by way of patient care, personal exploration and education with both ACAM and A4M (American Academy of Anti-Aging), she has found that there are many alternatives to traditional medicine available that have proven to be very successful in the achievement of optimal health and well-being. Integrative and holistic medicine entails diagnosing and treating present conditions as well as preventing others from occurring.
“There are so many layers of success for each person. Most patients present with multiple symptoms and a variety of goals that they wish to achieve,” she said. She explained the body is like an onion. “Together we have to peel back the layers and work through the various symptoms and concerns piece by piece. By repairing one, you open the pathway to allow repair of another and so on.” Oftentimes, we don’t know specifically what is wrong, but we know we just don’t feel our best. Dr. Bradshaw can help with those “grey” areas as well when it comes to hormones, fatigue and other components of our health that affect our well being.
Success in achieving better health with Dr. Bradshaw has been experienced in a variety of areas. Chelation therapy has been researched (TACT trial) and noted as an alternative for those cardiac patients hoping to avoid surgery. For patients suffering from menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, irritability and mood swings, fatigue and insomnia, implementation of Bio-Identical Hormone therapy is a possible treatment solution. Dr. Bradshaw explained that by evaluating thyroid function in a more holistic way, natural treatments can be utilized which more closely mimic normal thyroid function. “Getting an idea of the complete, bigger picture also allows evaluation of any underlying factor or condition such as iodine deficiency, auto immune disorders, etc.” she said. The office also treats patients suffering from chronic or adrenal fatigue.

Licensed Facial Specialist & Licensed Tattoo & PMU Artist
My passion for the beauty industry began well over 10 years ago. I was always searching for the best way to manage my clinically dry skin and the constant rough texture that came from not having a thyroid.
When I turned 30, I started receiving professional treatments and finally started understanding my skin. By embarking on my own journey, I realized helping people transform their skin was what I ultimately wanted to be doing. In 2015 I enrolled in the Medical Esthetics program at American Institute of Beauty, where I graduated with honors and received my FL Esthetics License. Since then, I have pursued a career in Medical Esthetics and have gained experience in multiple settings from Day Spas to Dermatology offices. I am certified in Sculpt Ice, holistic body sculpting; and am also a Licensed Tattoo Artist through the State of Florida, with a certification in Lip Blushing, a Semi-Permanent Makeup technique.
My passion is to educate people and help them feel confident about their skin. My constant search for further knowledge for skin health and curiosity about new techniques, new treatments and esthetic breakthroughs is something I love to share with my clients.
Quality, result driven treatments and care, given by a licensed professional with medical strength products are vital for optimal goal-oriented results. There is nothing more rewarding to me then to help you achieve your goal of healthier, glowing skin.
