In this page, you are privy some of the top alternative medical doctors and functional medicine doctors I used along the way in Manhattan, New York. Without these supportive medical professionals, I would not be where I am today. My doctors and I strongly believe that lifestyle changes are the foundation for healing and with the right care, illness can be reversed.
Alternative Medicine & Functional Integrative Medicine focuses on prevention through diet, exercise, lifestyle changes, laboratory testing and other diagnostic techniques, prescribes combinations of holistic herbal and botanical medicines, supplements and stress management techniques.
Think of your medical symptoms as a puzzle. Integrative M.D.'s help put the puzzle pieces back together and focus on why the pieces came apart in the first place. They focus on the root cause. The foundation.
I spent decades trying to decode what was wrong with me, and to no avail, I barely had any answers. I spent years doctor hopping because every doctor told me they were not impressed with my case and felt I was completely fine. I wasn't. I stayed strong, persistent and followed my gut (no pun intended), and found a wonderful community of Functional Doctors that focused on Prevention that not only were able to help me but were able to see beyond the superficial symptoms and continue with extensive testing and get down to the root causes.
Here is a list of M.D.'s and Health Professionals that focus on Functional Integrative Medicine in New York that I have personally worked with as a patient. They are all amazing professionals who really care about their patients well being, and who work to find the root causes of any illness or pain.

If you haven't been feeling right, and you know something is wrong, even though all of your MRI's, CT Scans, X-rays and other various testing shows up with nothing, then click HERE to find an Integrative Functional Doctor in your area. You can also email me if you have any questions.
It is so important to listen to your own instincts when Doctor's tell you nothing is wrong. You have to be your own advocate, and trust that you know your body. If you sense that something wrong, it usually is.
