OPTIMIZE NATURAL HEALTH, NUTRITION, & BALANCE:
Integrative & Individualized Health Care
Whether the goal is to lessen pain, find an alternative to pharmaceuticals, or improve your quality of life, Dr. LoBisco’s Naturopathic Medicine offers a perfect integration between the conventional medical system and scientifically sound, safe, and natural therapies.
The Naturopathic Principles regard the whole person and aims to get to the underlying cause of a health concern. In this philosophy it is not considered advantageous to suppress and hide symptoms without addressing the reason for the imbalance. Therefore, drug therapy is utilized only in conjugation with natural means that will support and assist the body’s repair.
Functional Medicine provides insight into one’s unique biochemistry. It utilizes a holistic model that incorporates specific biological assessments to help determine individualized nutritional needs and deficiencies. Functional Medicine also offers insight into how various supplements or medications affect every body differently.
These two medical paradigms are rooted in an understanding of conventional medicine and how it interacts with integrative therapies. Dr. LoBisco incorporates these approaches into a personalized and specialized plan for every established client. Through the process of healing, Dr. LoBisco holds reverence for the collaboration of a safe and mutual respectful therapeutic relationship.

Did you know what’s good for your brain is also good for your body? At least, according to Dr. Amen, MD. Dr. Amen is a psychiatrist who uses SPECT scans to visualize how the brain FUNCTIONS. In other words, he looks at the brain’s activity and its neural pathways, not just the structure of the brain. He has performed more than 50,000 scans, and uses various techniques which include lifestyle modifications, nutritional support, supplements, and medication, in order to assist and achieve balance in the brain’s biochemistry. The results are profound.
I have been studying his techniques, specifically incorporating some neurotransmitter balancing protocols, and have seen the results turn around many of my patients a lot quicker than other modalities. Still, do we need all this fancy biochemistry to have healthy brains? Although it’s fun, what is the easiest and best secret for both brain and body health may surprise you. It’s not found in a pill, it doesn’t cost a thing, it makes you look good, and it gives you energy. Do I have you interested? (Click link to continue).
