Hi! I'm Dr. Jen!
Creator of Healthology by Dr. Jen
Dr. Pfleghaar (Dr. Jen) attended medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. She then went on to residency at St Vincent’s Mercy Medical Center for Emergency Medicine. Dr. Jen spent one year flying with Life Flight as a flight physician. She now works at local emergency rooms in the community and her office in Perrysburg, OH practicing Integrative Medicine. She is a graduate from the The University of Arizona: Andrew Weil Center for Integrative Medicine's two year fellowship program (1,000 hour program). Dr. Jen has been featured on the local Podcast Thrive Tribe 419, a guest on Rebecca Regnier’s Full Plate (WTVG 13 ABC), has lectured at the Way Public Library, and for the AOA (American Osteopathic Association). Her own health history of Hashimoto’s and having children sparked her interest in Integrative Medicine. She is very passionate about helping patients with chronic disease and letting our body heal itself. For example, Dr. Jen shares her experiences and expertise as the host of the Heal Your Thyroid and Reverse Hashimoto’s Summit. She is a published author of the book- Eat. Sleep. Move. Breathe: A Beginner's Guide to a Healthy Lifestyle. Her hobbies include spending time with her husband and four children, running, paddle boarding on the Maumee river and reading the Bible.
Dr. Jen is very passionate about health. She completed a fellowship in Integrative Medicine. Healthcare is often symptom-focused and reactive, rather than prevention-focused and proactive. Patients and physicians rarely discuss nutrition, exercise, and lifestyle change, and instead focus mainly on diagnosis and treatment of disease. Many clinicians feel unprepared to discuss the safe and effective use of dietary supplements or herbal medicines, or how to help patients incorporate relaxation or mind-body practices into their lives. She believes it is important to take the time with each patient and develop a strong relationship. Her own health dilemma of Hashimoto’s disease (which is now in remission), having MTHFR mutations and having her own children made her journey into Integrative Medicine a passion and a way of life
