Dr. Falquier's Story

To begin, Dr. Falquier (pronounced: Fall-Key-Ay) loves delicious food. She is a board certified Internal Medicine, Culinary Medicine and Lifestyle Medicine physician. She is bilingual (Spanish and English) and multicultural, born and raised in Mexico City to Swiss and American parents. This unique multilingual and multicultural perspective has shaped her work tremendously, as she has seen and experienced that our unique backgrounds, culture, taste, cultural experiences and historic expectations shape our health tremendously. 


Dr. Falquier worked as a primary care doctor for a prestigious multi-specialty group in San Diego, California, for over 15 years. In 2016 she began incorporating culinary medicine into her practice and the community and in 2020 founded Sensations Salud, which focuses on awakening the senses around ingredient acquisition and food preparation while empowering people to better health through nutritional knowledge and culinary literacy through culinary medicine education and consulting. Dr. Falquier is the host of Culinary Medicine Recipe podcast, which includes educational video episodes in both English and Spanish. She is clinical professor at the Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science, UC San Diego Health Sciences, adjunct faculty at Point Loma Nazarene University (PLNU) and adjunct professor at Bastyr University. 


She is highly involved with Olivewood Gardens and Learning Center in National City, California. A non-profit organization that empowers all age groups through gardening, nutrition and culinary literacy. She acts as their Culinary Medicine consulting physician and has been on their board of directors since 2017 currently acting as their chair. Her work there can be seen through the powerful documentary: The Kitchenistas which released in March 2021 and selected for 10 film festivals and multiple awards. She is also on the advisory board of the American College of Culinary Medicine, focusing on permeating culinary medicine into medical schools, health systems, foodservice industry and the community.


Dr. Falquier promotes Culinary Medicine throughout San Diego and internationally in a variety of ways and to varied age groups and audiences including: Hands-on cooking events, cooking demonstrations, both live and virtual, animated speaking engagements, expert panels, educational events and courses for medical students, graduate students, medical residents, chefs, athletes, and community members. She does extensive recipe development, recipe modifications for optimization of health, and is active social media. 


She has been interviewed regarding food and health by media outlets including the Washington Post, The Union Tribune, Edible San Diego, San Diego Magazine, CBS news, and TeleMundo. Additionally, she was recognized yearly, from 2009-2020, as one of San Diego’s Top Doctors.
