Values Of Care
An Integrative Approach
Unlike conventional medical care, we first help patients heal and then empower them with the knowledge and tools to avoid many of the pitfalls that created their illness in the first place. No matter where you are right now...with our expert guidance you can heal and lead a vibrant life!
Guided step-by-step by our care team, you will implement an integrative approach to your wellness, drawing from the most up-to-date nutritional science and lifestyle medicine, to significantly improve your health and alleviate symptoms.
Not only is each patient biologically unique, their illness is unique too. There are so many factors that may be to blame for your illness – from lifestyle choices, food choices, allergies and even toxins in your immediate environment... plus let's not forget mindset (which plays a big role in your health).
After we do your intake, we may conduct further specialty lab tests (that your current psychiatrist may not even know about). Plus, we also use other assessment tools to get the full picture of your health so that with a precise diagnosis, we can come up with a precise "healing prescription."
In your typical 15-minute psychiatrist's visit, there is little time to understand the depth of your illness... let alone the contributing factors that may have caused it.
During your in-depth intake consultation, we take the time needed, one-on-one, to conduct a thorough review to understand all the potential triggers for your illness. This review includes your past medical history, your past and present diet, environment, stress levels, and gut health. Your in-depth health history is the start to unraveling the root causes of you illness.
Changing your lifestyle may seem daunting, but we teach you how to use mindset tools to overcome stubborn habits that aren't serving you any longer. We make the prospect of becoming healthy "fun" and have a wide range of tools in place to support you during your health transformation and beyond.We also leverage health coaching and other forms of support and accountability so your new healing lifestyle practices can become an integral part of your everyday life. We also harness the support of online communities to give you support remotely, as you make important changes that translate into lasting health.

Dr. Bhopal takes time to educate and discuss mental health rather than just prescribing a medication to fix the problem. She introduces both eastern and western medical perspectives, which has allowed me to find a happy balance in my daily life. It takes effort but it is worth it, and it it helps when you have an encouraging and warm person to guide you along the way.
