Find the underlying causes
of disease and treat them
to balance your body
You aren't defined by your symptoms. Yet, Western Medicine often chooses to focus on a specific symptom and treat it with medicine quick. What's wrong with this method? It often covers up the problem rather than treating it. You may feel better at first, but the issue can continue to grow and other side-effects may pop-up.
Dr. Afshari's approach to whole-body Functional Medicine revolves around a balance of East vs West. He combines science-based approaches with holistic integrative medicine to reprogram your body to live healthier.
We understand the complexities of integrated health
