Our Integrative Model
We practice a model of medicine that incorporates the standards of care in conventional medicine with the best diagnostic and clinical tools, technologies, research and resources from other field of scientific inquiry and then combines these with a systems biology approach (also known as root cause analysis or Functional Medicine).
This Functional Medicine model helps us identify the critical imbalances that are at the root of an illness and then to address them one by one. This is patient-centered and individualized (not disease-centered and protocol driven) model of medicine similar to what is going on right now at the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Functional Medicine.
This new paradigm is the future of medicine, available today.
