Dr. Alina Olteanu is the founder of Whole Child Texas, a pediatric integrative, holistic, and functional medicine practice in Frisco, Texas. She is board-certified in pediatrics and in integrative and holistic medicine. She holds a PhD in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina, in Chapel Hill. She did her pediatric residency at Baylor College of Medicine, in Houston, Texas and received her medical degree from the University of Medicine in Cluj, Romania.
She has extensive knowledge about herbs, supplements, homeopathy, aromatherapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, mind-body medicine, Ayurveda, and Traditional Chinese Medicine, which she practices in combination with western medicine. Dr. Alina is also a meditation instructor certified by the Chopra Center and attended multiple meditation courses in India and the U.S. She loves teaching parents how to use meditation as a stress management tool.
Dr. Alina believes that healing is multilayered and multifaceted. There isn’t a one-size fits all cure or treatment. At Whole Child Texas, our approach is slightly different from traditional medicine. We are not focused on just treating disease and symptoms; we treat the whole child by addressing all aspects of a child’s health — mind, body, emotions, spirit, family, and parenting. Our practice is rooted in integrative and functional medicine principles, along with a great respect for the progress and marvels of modern medicine. We also teach parents and their children — both healthy kids and those with autism, ADHD, anxiety, depression — how to cope with challenging, stressful situations in life, at school and at home, by offering guidance on a variety of mind-body techniques like meditation, breathing exercise, and guided imagery.
Services offered include wellness and sports physicals, acute sick visits and care of chronic conditions like eczema, asthma, allergies, PANDAS/PANS, ADHD, autism, depression, anxiety, defiance and other mood disorders, stress management and meditation, homeopathy, nutritional counseling and functional medicine. We also have a natural pharmacy on-site, that includes carefully selected, safe, and palatable herbal and nutraceutical grade products for children.
Dr. Alina believes that the environment plays a crucial role in healing. As you walk into the Whole Child Texas clinic you feel your stress melting away, like walking into a spa. Every design detail has been thought of with one goal in mind: healing. The soothing music, the relaxing essential oils diffused in the waiting room, the soft colors of the paint and the quiet cork floors, are an invitation to relaxation and safety, as a path to healing.
Dr. Alina strongly believes in treating the whole child, addressing all elements that contribute to a child’s health, using safe and scientifically proven treatments, and a large dose of LOVE.
