SHILPA P. SAXENA, M.D.
Health is not just the absence of disease. Health is not even about just looking good on the outside or on paper. Total well-being is knowing that you are at your highest expression of health, and that your future is primed for countless great moments doing what you love and being with the ones you love.
The truth is, all too often seemingly 'healthy' people have heart attacks or get cancer earlier and earlier in life. Why? Because the standard medical system was created to react to urgency, not create resiliency. Functional & integrative medicine provide the solutions for people unwilling to risk being the next statistic.
