Dr. Edmond Sarraf, better known as “Dr. Ed”, graduated his residency program from Akron Children’s Hospital in Akron, Ohio in 2004. He later went on to complete and get certified as a homeopath as well as finish several courses at the Institute of Functional Medicine in order to do sub-specialized testing and get to the root cause of disease.
Dr. Ed started his career as a “traditional doctor” in very busy traditional practices. He easily saw 40 patients per day, moonlighted in Urgent Cares, and worked in several hospitals from seeing newborns, to treating hospitalized patients with serious infections/disorders. During that time, he knew that simply prescribing medicines was not his only calling as a doctor. That is when he decided to leave everything behind and move back home to LA, start over, and create So Cal Integrative Wellness Center.
Since 2008, Dr. Ed found his true calling when he started combining Naturopathic and Western medicine. His desire and passion is to see families use food, herbs, homeopathy as “medicine” and to change the vary spoken language of what is called “medicine” at home from a very early age. He cut down his prescription medications by 85%. He believes in the Mind-Body-Spirit connection and balance.
Having become one of the premier, best established integrative centers in Los Angeles, Dr. Ed’s motto has become gratitude, love and growth in good health. “I am so privileged to work with so many amazing families from the beginning, creating a grass root change where they grow up thinking of food, herbs, homeopathy and mindfulness as their primary medicine”.
Dr. Molly Jarchow graduated from Bastyr University in Seattle, WA where she completed a 5 year intensive medical program in Naturopathic Medicine and Midwifery, including 3 years of supervised clinical practice. Dr Molly chose to become a Naturopathic Doctor and Licensed Midwife because of her passion for providing holistic healthcare for women and children throughout all stages of life.
Dr Molly attended births in Los Angeles for 7 years and co- founded LA Midwife Collective. She supported hundreds of families in their journey to parenthood and was honored to welcome over 400 babies into the world. After retiring from births in 2017, a natural next step was joining Dr Ed to continue supporting families and growing children within a pediatric practice. Dr Molly is very excited to share her love of food, herbal medicine and homeopathy with the families of LA while collaborating with her longtime friend and mentor Dr Ed. In her Santa Monica office, Dr Molly continues to see women for holistic prenatal and postpartum care, fertility support, holistic gynecology, thyroid health, digestive issues, allergies and mood support.
