PETRA DORFSMAN, ND, CNS, IFMCP

Are you struggling with chronic health challenges? Are you having difficulty making sense out of often conflicting and unclear information or advice? Are you frustrated by unrewarding  conventional strategies for your health challenges? Are you ready to move forward towards real wellness? I am here to help you.

I am a board-certified naturopathic doctor of naturopathic medicine who focuses on individuals experiencing chronic health challenges. I practice functional medicine –– a distinct form of patient-centered healthcare –– which first and foremost seeks to determine the most efficient and effective paths for patient empowerment and healing.

 

I have a deep appreciation of the importance of the interconnected nature of the body’s systems and the physiological, psychological, and pathological processes.

 

I diligently follow the latest, and most rigorous research and knowledge. It takes–– on average–– 17 years for established scientific research findings to be adopted in conventional clinical care. That is too long!

 

Functional medicine is different from other approaches to medicine in its lack of adherence to a specific and limited set of tools. Therapeutic flexibility is at its core. We will eagerly –– and appropriately –– consider all therapeutic options, including nutritional/pharmaceutical, surgical/ botanical, and detoxification/lifestyle modifications.

 

In order to comprehensively address chronic conditions we must balance and correct the basic physiology, decrease the total toxic body burden, modulate the immune system, and optimize mitochondrial function.

 

Health is a dynamic process. If you want to go far, let's go together!

DEUTERIUM DEPLETION

Mitochondrial dysfunction is the root cause of

80% to 95% of all chronic disease.

The most foundational intervention is depleting deuterium levels in your tissues.

Thereby restoring mitochondrial biochemistry and efficiency.

This is  all about water!

CARDIOMETABOLIC DYSFUNCTION

Its not just what you eat!

Elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure, and insulin resistance are all related to cardiometabolic dysfunction.

These can be resolved by addressing your light environment, metabolic dysfunction, identifying and treating microbial infections, screening for toxins, and assessing deuterium tissue levels.

RESTORE MINERAL BALANCE

Food is depleted, most drinking water compromised, and stress places an enormous demand on our body's mineral supply.

 

Restoring balance is essential. Let's check levels and improve your mineral metabolism.

What is at the root of your dysfunction?
