Integrative medicine has the ability to reduce the severity or frequency of disease episodes, decrease stress related to chronic disease, and provide a better quality of life. This integrative approach is a patient-centered way of addressing lifestyle, nutritional and emotional needs of our patients.
Our Integrative consultations provide opportunities to support the body’s natural healing process, the wish to explore all treatment options, and use less invasive treatments. Integrative Consultation has the potential to expand treatment options for you as a patient and the ability to introduce new approaches to chronic conditions. Integrative medicine prioritizes health and wellness.
Nutrition is highly emphasized within our integrative approach as well as other lifestyle and environmental factors. By analyzing your current diet and making recommendations, such as healthy food options and ways to incorporate supplementation into your daily routine, we can begin to uncover and address other issues that may stem from a poor diet.
We look at you as a whole person instead of isolating your symptoms. This helps us begin to identify underlying problems that may have never been brought to light before. Adequate sleep is a perfect example. Sleep is a critical element of good health. Ensuring you are getting the appropriate amount of sleep is important for your overall health. So many things beyond what time we go to bed or get out of bed affect our sleep.
In today’s world of electronics our sleep is disrupted by simply having our cell phone or apple watch in our bedrooms at night. Watching TV right before bed or having any form of light in your room such as the light on your smoke detector or on a device charging can drastically affect how well you sleep. All of these are factors we explore to optimize your sleep and ultimate health.
Our Integrative Consultation patients present with a small set of specific complaints or symptoms. Whether it is brain fog, low energy and weight gain or hair loss, skin rashes and stomach pain or any combination of symptoms or illnesses. Our Providers will dive deep into these specific issues to uncover the root cause and set you on a plan to capture back your health and wellness.
"I've been in those shoes. I know what it's like to feel hopeless and helpless when your health causes a roadblock in your life. This is why I chose to find a better way for myself and my patients. Together, we will look until we find answers"

What to Expect
The Benefits of Integrative Consultations
Our Integrative approach to your specific set of symptoms will be patient-centered and not disease or symptom-centered. Through extensive diagnostic testing, uncovering your health story and developing your life’s timeline we will establish a treatment plan designed to attack the root cause of your illness.
Through Integrative Consultation visits we look at many health factors including weight and hormonal issues. We know that gaining weight or struggling to lose weight is often a symptom of an underlying issue. Without proper treatment of the underlying issue you will never achieve the weight you desire. Stress hormones and inactive thyroids also play a huge role in our overall health. These are all things we evaluate as a routine part of our process.
