Functionally Integrated Medicine
CARE ON A CASE-BY-CASE BASIS
Seeking to understand the causes of disease, functionally integrated medicine starts with the patient’s individuality first, rather than just the symptoms of the disease. This understanding relies on western medical science, as well as traditional medicine and respects the complexity of the patient by taking into account social, emotional, environmental, and physical components.
Vitamins and supplements can play a powerful role in both treatment & prevention of disease, as well as overall well-being & longevity. To be safe and effective, the approach must be undertaken with a full understanding of patient’s unique constitution, current conditions or diagnosis, potentially undiagnosed conditions, and any existing medication or supplement regimes.
AN ENGAGING COLLABORATION BETWEEN DOCTOR AND PATIENT
Dr. Kandel has been pioneer in integrative medicine for over thirty years. Throughout his career, he has practiced with a deep curiosity about the links between the mind & body, nutrition & environment, and constitutional & genetic factors, and the roles they play in overall health.
Dr Kandel takes time with each patient to establish and record a thorough case history. This is taken into account in order to make judicious recommendations for supplements or before ordering laboratory results (if the existing tests aren’t already available for review). The case history and or tests are reviewed in order to understand current ailments, potential disease and also the functional capacities of the body’s organs and how they can be improved. Dr. Kandel’s utilizes experience as a clinician, ongoing up to-date-studies, and a personal and collaborative style of patient care to ensure that the right care is provided.
I bring together the precision of modern medicine with the time honored techniques of traditional medicine to provide a holistic and comprehensive treatment plan/approach.
