Dr. Melanie Keller (@dr.keller) specializes in the treatment of IBS, SIBO, and other chronic health conditions. This includes genetic and epigenetic influences now being linked to environmental toxins that contribute to an imbalanced gut microbiome and gut motility dysfunction. She is alumna of National University of Natural Medicine (NUNM) and founding physician in the development of their SIBO Center and SIBO Symposium(s). She is currently practicing in Los Angeles, CA and virtually. When she is not seeing patients she enjoys stand-up comedy and therapeutic walks with her dog.
