A Holistic Approach. An Enhanced Complement of Care.
Our philosophy as an integrative medical clinic is based on an integrative approach to patient care which includes the most advanced technologies in traditional medicine in combination with the best of complementary therapies. Through IFSMED, patients will receive a personalized “prescription” for care that draws from the three areas that are the pillars of our integrative medical clinic:
The efficacy of your treatment begins with a proper diagnosis – a core focus of our practice. Our comprehensive diagnostic evaluation consists of complete physical examination, individualized biochemical, immunological and genetic testing as well as state-of-the-art ultrasound and radiographic assessment to elicit a clear, well-founded identification of your complete state.
Based on the established diagnosis, we offer our patients a highly individualized therapy which typically incorporates traditional pharmacological agents (drug therapies), customized diet, appropriate food supplements and herbal remedies, and optimized protocols for physical activity and daily exercises.
Our facility was expressly designed to bring diagnosis and care together, and is equipped with an infusion center where we administer biologic agents and chemotherapy for patients with life-threatening rheumatologic diseases. For patients with non-life-threatening illnesses we propose, as an option, a complete natural route of the therapy.
Research has shown the immense role that diet plays in wellness – both in eradicating unfavorable symptoms and conditions, and in promoting better health systemically. Our in-depth nutrition consultations are conducted by our highly experienced naturopathic doctor, Stacey McLarry. She has extensive experience developing plans that achieve your goals while fitting into your lifestyle.
She uses various tools to develop a highly personalized program including: food intolerance testing, your medical history, current eating habits and lifestyle, and provides guidance on how to get optimal benefits from dietary changes. She works individually with you to provide advice that allows you to discover proper nutritional habits within your specific dietary plan.
At IFSMED, we believe supplements can also play an integral part in optimizing health. After many years in development, IFSMED offers a line of nutraceutical supplements, GLUTEN-FREE REMEDIES, a specialized line of restorative food supplements and herbal preparations designed to enhance our holistic treatment of musculoskeletal and inflammatory disorders. Featuring unique composition, improved absorption capacity and optimized strength, these naturally gluten-free supplements work to address biological deficiencies and provide condition-specific benefits. An individual selection of supplements, if appropriate, is included as part of your overall dietary plan.
Currently, the complete line of food supplements and herbs specially manufactured for IFSMED is available both in our clinic and online.
IFSMED offers physical therapy services that identify problem areas and work to maximize your quality of life and movement potential.
We evaluate and develop protocols for various issues to improve: posture, range of motion, flexibility, muscle imbalances/asymmetries, spine stabilization, muscular strength/endurance, balance, and gait.
IFSMED offers our clients one-on-one pilates classes with fitness and body energy assessment before, during, and after treatments. Pilates promotes wellness on multiple levels – both enhancing physical fitness and supporting the mind-body connection that is so essential to optimal health.
