Founder and Director
Dr. Taz Bhatia, MD, is a board-certified physician, specializing in integrative, functional and emergency medicine with expertise in pediatrics, prevention and womens health. Personal health challenges in her twenties motivated Dr. Taz to go beyond her conventional training and pursue an alternative definition of health and healthy living. It led her to opening her now nationally recognized practice, the Atlanta Center for Holistic and Integrative Medicine, where providers help patients to navigate their journey to WHOLE health.
Dr. Taz MD, is a Fellow of the University of Arizona Program in Integrative Medicine led by Dr. Andrew Weil, completing the fellowship in 2008.

She has served as a medical expert for CNN Headline News, a Dr. Oz Sharecare expert and been featured on numerous media outlets, including TODAY, Access Hollywood, Good Morning America, The Weather Channel, EXTRA!, Live with Kelly and Michael and the Meredith Vieira Show.
Dr. Taz has since authored two books: What Doctors Eat and The 21-Day Belly Fix, frequently featured in Atlantas Top Docs and voted numerous times as Best Atlanta Integrative Medicine Physician. When not caring for patients, she can be found spending time with her husband and two young children.
Mark Gonsalves has enjoyed a very successful 30-plus year business career building brands for major companies. He became interested in health and the impact our food has when he and his wife found out their then 5-year old daughter was diagnosed with a medical condition called Absence Seizures. Traditional medicine made things worse so they looked to nutrition as a way to address her challenge which proved quite effective.
Having owned a GMP-certified nutraceutical manufacturing company which made dietary and nutritional supplements for many popular brands, Mark and his wife Donna now have a weekly radio show, The Food Conspiracy, which airs Sunday’s on two AM stations in Atlanta. They educate listeners on what the Food Industry doesn’t want you to know about, how improper food contributes to sickness, obesity and disease and what you can do about it.
