Chronic Complex IllnessWorking Together to Rebuild Your Health
Patients often come to our clinic after a long and frustrating healthcare journey. They may have had test after test and appointment after appointment, only to come up short on answers and relief.
Our clinic offers a different experience. Here, we welcome the opportunity to treat complex conditions, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, and persistent tick-borne illnesses. We are particularly trained to serve patients whose symptoms include neurologic or psychiatric symptoms such as anxiety, brain fog, and challenges related to mood, sleep, memory, and sensory processing.
Together, we look deeply at the “why” of illness, and seek to rebuild the foundations of health. We are:
Whole-Body Oriented. Conventional medicine tends to compartmentalize the body, with specialists focusing exclusively on their area. By contrast, we use a systems biology approach, which views the body as an interconnected unit: we consider connections between symptoms, and work with patients to build resilience in the body as a whole.
Broadly and Deeply Investigative. When textbook diagnoses don’t fit, we continue to search for constructive ways forward by delving deeply into the causes underlying symptoms. We consider a wide and subtle range of stressors, from environmental exposures to long-term antibiotic use.
It’s Not All in your Head. While we acknowledge the importance of the mind-body connection, stress, and early life trauma, we also take symptoms seriously. We’re informed by emerging research that supports measurable biomedical imbalances in chronic “mystery” illnesses, such as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and autoimmune conditions.
Slow Medicine. We honor the body’s natural rhythm of healing, acknowledging that the roads to illness and health are both long-term. Our appointment lengths reflect that approach, allowing a more comprehensive picture of health to emerge than in standard fifteen-minute appointments. Rather than short-term fixes, we opt for gentle interventions that create conditions for long-term health.
