About Integrative Brain and Body

Unlike conventional medicine that focuses more on the diagnosis and prescription, our team at Integrative Brain and Body takes a much more holistic approach: By focusing on why your symptoms manifest the way they do, we seek to identify the root cause behind your chronic dis-ease – so that we can craft a personalized plan just for you.

Our Core

Values Of Care


An Integrative Approach

Unlike conventional medical care, we first help patients heal and then empower them with the knowledge and tools to avoid many of the pitfalls that created their illness in the first place. No matter where you are right now... with our expert guidance you can heal and lead a vibrant life!

Guided step-by-step by our care team, you will implement an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the most up-to-date nutritional science and lifestyle medicine, to significantly improve your health and alleviate symptoms.


Personalized Care

Not only is each patient biologically unique , but their illness is unique too. There are so many factors that may be to blame for your illness – from lifestyle choices, food choices, allergies and even toxins in your immediate environment... plus let's not forget mindset (which plays a big role of your health).

.After we do your intake, we may conduct further specialty lab tests (that your current doctor may not even know about). Plus, we also use other assessment tools to get the full picture of your health so that with a precise diagnosis, we can come up with a precise "healing prescription".


Co-Creating Health

Changing your lifestyle may seem daunting, but we teach you how to use mindset tools to overcome stubborn habits that aren't serving you any longer. We make the prospect of getting healthy "fun" and have a wide range of tools in place to support you during your health transformation and beyond.

We also leverage health coaching and other forms of support and accountability so your new healing lifestyle practices can become an integral part of your everyday life. We also harness the support of online communities to give you support remotely, as you make important changes that translate into lasting health.


Dedicated Attention

In your typical 7-minute doctor's visit, there is little time to understand the depth of your illness... let alone the contributing factors that may have caused it.

During your in-depth intake consultation, we take the time needed, one-on-one, to conduct a thorough review to understand all the potential triggers for your illness. This review includes your past medical history, your past and present diet, environment, stress levels, and gut health. Your in-depth health history is the start to unraveling the root causes of you illness.


Root Cause Resolution

Unlike conventionally-trained doctors, our care team always focuses on getting to the root causes of your illness. We also examine the key cellular imbalances that are responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.

Also known as functional medicine, our care is so effective because we focus on dealing with the "up-stream" catalyst of chronic illnesses – including toxicity in your home or work-place, potential food intolerances and allergies, gut & hormonal imbalances, along with mindset issue that all determine how healthy you are to date.


Innovative Treatments

Did you know that it takes on average 17 years for clinical breakthroughs to make their way into your conventional doctor's office? That means many health care practitioners are dispensing outdated advice and not using the best lab testing available for your case. Chances are they are not even aware of the proper testing that could make all the difference in your healing plan.

At Integrative Brain and Body, we are trained in up-to-date medicine – including the best, most advanced testing and we pair that with current nutritional science so that you can finally achieve your health goals .
