I truly believe that healing comes from addressing mind, body and spirit. I always try to find the deeper issues that may be causing disharmony or dis-ease in the body. Since 2007, I have specialized in neuro-endocrinology - which is essentially addressing the way the brain is communicating to the endocrine (hormone) glands. This involves balancing the brain neurotransmitters for changes in mood (depression, anxiety, irritability), sleep, pain, cravings, libido and digestion as well as any changes in thyroid, adrenal, pancreatic and female/male hormone status.mThis also involves taking the body out of the fight or flight response.

My treatment focuses on mobilization of the joints with muscle relaxation. Chiropractic is more effective when the muscles are addressed concurrently with adjustment. To better serve my patients I use myofascial release (a deep tissue therapy that breaks up muscle adhesions and scar tissue) with trigger point work and stretching. I also believe strongly in active care and give my patients exercises to do at home that complement the treatment in the office. A patient who does the active care will get better faster than those who rely on the treatment alone.

When you have not been satisfied with your doctor's understanding, diagnosis or treatment of your condition then I give it a more comprehensive look and in a more holistic way. Homeopathic medicine is a true holistic medicine. It can be combined with any other form of treatment, even chemotherapy! The word cure is now a word I commonly use in my practice.

"Nine months, seven specialists at a famous medical hospital" verses one integrative medicine office visit with Licensed Acupuncturist L. Francesca Ferrari to address the nagging abdominal pain and bloating. The patient clearly needed an accurate diagnosis, which all seven specialists at the hospital missed. Integrative medicine can offer both a Chinese medicine and Western medicine differential diagnosis, and that is exactly what I did. I told my new patient she needed a lactulose breath test to rule out small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO). Voila- the western lactulose breath test confirmed she had SIBO.

In Japan, acupuncture has been used extensively to treat childhood ailments. For youger childrens, I use special pediatric tools that developed about 300 years ago in Japan. Childrens, actually, respond better and faster than adults due to their sensitivity.

The second is stress which leads to hormonal imbalances. The third is trauma. We can have falls and accidents that occurred in the past, which can cause undetected and long-lasting damage not just to muscles but also to nerves. Nerves control all functions in the body. Headaches, numbness, back or neck pain usually come from undetected nerve damage.
