Letter from Dr. Khruana

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am a Board certified Pediatrician who got interested in integrative medicine in last few years. I enjoy incorporating traditional western allopathic medicine with nutrition and integrative medicine in my practice so that I can offer them to you and your children.  I have a special interest in children with ADD/ADHD, constipation, autoimmune disorders and gastrointestinal issues.

I have found that traditional medicine has answers to most acute diseases but when it comes to chronic diseases or mental health, it has its own limitation. This void is filled by Integrative medicine, which looks into root cause of the symptoms and treat it from inside out. Functional Medicine is a method that begins with the idea that disease does not exist but instead are imbalances that need to be corrected for optimal health.

Important elements include:

  1. Promotion of health as a positive vitality, not just the absence of symptoms
  2. Respect for Biochemical Individuality
  3. A dynamic balance of internal and external factors
  4. View of health and illness as manifestations of web-like interconnections of physiological factors e.g.immunological dysfunction can provoke cardiovascular disease gastrointestinal dysfunction can cause hormonal and immunological disturbances
  5. Patient-centered medicine
