NIH Advisory Board members are specifically trained in holistic, proactive, and diverse approaches to health. These physicians, practitioners, therapists, trainers, and mentors all have extensive experience in successfully guiding individuals and families in their respective practice specialties. Our experts are deeply passionate about these integrative principles and incorporate them into their daily lives.
The premise of functional, integrative, and complementary medicine is to look at all areas of someone’s life and consider many different factors contributing to their health concerns or symptoms.
Each person is different and the same treatment won’t work for everyone. There are multiple ways for the individual to successfully uncover the true cause of their health issues. With a customized treatment plan, clients can accomplish their desired health resolution.
