Dr. Kat Cotter, D.C.
Orange County, California, United States
Dr. Kat Cotter holds a Doctorate in Chiropractic and has received certifications in several other areas. Born in 1957, she is one of the so-called “baby boomers”. She has an extensive background in the health field spanning over 30 years. She is certified through the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine in conjunction with New York Chiropractic College as an anti-aging practitioner and was the director of the Lifespan Anti-Aging Center in Los Angeles. She left private practice to work with the Maximum Life Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to age reversal. In the mid-80s she moved from New York to Los Angeles and adopted the California lifestyle. She started as a fitness instructor and then became certified as a personal trainer. Her past experience includes training in a hospital E.R. as a certified emergency medical technician. She was surprised by the amount of people who came into the E.R. with illnesses and diseases she felt sure could have been avoided with a healthier lifestyle - sometimes as little as exercise or a change in diet. So many of them looked 10 or 15 years older than their actual age. It was during that time that she began to study holistic medicine and how proper exercise, nutrition, supplementation, detoxification and stress management affect the way we look and feel. She has devoted more than 30 years to the study of alternative and natural medicine and has trained extensively in clinical nutrition. She is the founder of “Create-a-Diet”, a computer-generated diet program. She was the co-founder of Virtual Health Fair (vfair.com) an internet health resource site and online health expo. She was involved with Cells4Life, a biotech company providing viable cell storage for humans, pets, and endangered species. She has served on the boards of four biotech companies and two non-profit organizations. She has chaired many health-related conferences and seminars and in 2002 she started The Longevity Bootcamp, a weekend retreat featuring 12 experts in all areas of health and longevity for those who wanted to look and feel younger. Today she speaks to groups, large and small, about how they can rejuvenate themselves and slow down the rate at which they are aging. She also works one on one with clients, both in person (or by phone and email if they are not in the Southern California area.)
