About Integrated Metabolic Solutions
Integrated Metabolic Solutions offers a unique and different approach to diagnosing and treating metabolic problems such as hypothyroidism and type 2 diabetes.
What sets our approach apart from the more typical medical approach is in the focus and in the questions we seek to answer. The medical physician focuses on symptom relief and seeks to figure out which drug to give you to suppress your symptoms. Our approach focuses on figuring out what’s ultimately the cause of the trouble and then eliminating it.
There is a cause and effect for everything. The cause creates the effect. M.D.’s focus on the effect (symptoms). We focus on the cause (what’s driving the imbalances in your physiology).
We offer a personalized, patient-centered approach to assessing, preventing and treating complex chronic health problems. Our goal is to identify dysfunctions and imbalances in the physiology of the individual. We take the time to delve into the details of the intricate and interconnected biochemical framework that comprises each of our bodies.
Scientific Laboratory Testing
We utilize laboratory testing to uncover the “triggers” which are the underlying root causes of your problems. Whether your problems are due to nutritional deficiencies, food allergies, chronic inflammation, hormone imbalances, gastrointestinal problems, toxicity, anemias, autoimmune disease, adrenal fatigue, blood sugar imbalances, liver/kidney problems or a stealth infection, we will leave no stone unturned until we’ve discovered why you aren’t well.
