Dr. Andrea Matsumura was born in San Antonio Texas And attended the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio for medical school. She had a desire to explore and thought she was an east coaster for sure. Little did she know when she did an externship as a fourth-year medical student in Oregon that she would fall in love with the West Coast and all things involving the outdoors. She quickly switched gears and ended up finishing her internal medicine residency in Portland Oregon.

She worked as a hospitalist for a few years and moved into the outpatient care setting as a primary care physician. It was there that her spark for the love of sleep medicine started. While trying to manage chronic medical conditions she quickly realized that sleep is the juggernaut for wellness. 
She went on to complete a fellowship in sleep medicine at Oregon Health and Science University  (OHSU).
 
Dr. Matsumura describes herself as a holistic sleep medicine physician and enjoys public speaking on all things sleep.  Sleep is a vital sign that has yet to be discovered as the key to how everything else is managed in one’s life.

In this bonus episode of Thrive Bites, I review the book This Is Your Brain On Food. Listen here! Pick up your copy on August 4th, 2020, wherever books are sold.

From the publisher, "Did you know that blueberries can help you cope with the aftereffects of trauma? That salami can cause depression, or that boosting Vitamin D intake can help treat anxiety?

 
When it comes to diet, most people's concerns involve weight loss, fitness, cardiac health, and longevity. But what we eat affects more than our bodies; it also affects our brains.

In this episode of Thrive Bites, I sit down with Michelle and discuss how fitness came into her life and how she uses that as a tool for chronic pain and also finding balance in our lives!

"I was born and raised in Houston, TX, and graduated from the University of St. Thomas in 2002 with a BA in Biology and a minor in Music. I earned my MD at the McGovern Medical School (UT Houston) and matched into anesthesiology residency at UTMB in Galveston. After graduating from residency, I moved to San Antonio, TX where I completed my fellowship in interventional pain management at UTHSC-San Antonio. I moved back to Houston in 2012 and began practicing pain management in the Greater Houston area.

After practicing pain management for several years, I noticed that my patients were still suffering, and I knew that there must be a way to help my patients lead to higher-quality lives. I consider myself an avid yogi since 2012 and had the opportunity to complete my 200-hour yoga teacher certification in 2014 and restorative yoga certification in 2015. After doing some searching, I stumbled upon integrative medicine and found a way to meld the two worlds of yoga and medicine together. I completed the integrative medicine fellowship with the University of Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine (founded by Dr. Andrew Weil) in the fall of 2018. I am currently in the process of completing a health coaching program through the National Society of Health Coaches.

I am a part of Texas Orthopedic and Sports Medicine with 2 locations in North Houston - Tomball and The Woodlands, where I offer my patients a variety of modalities to manage their pain."
