My Pure MD is a next generation medical practice

At My Pure MD, our belief is that medical care should not be viewed as a cookie cutter solution, rather it needs to be personalized medicine. We view the body as one integrated web with a fine and delicate balance between different organ systems.

With the current medical approach the body is divided between different medical subspecialties. Our approach is to take all aspects of one’s health history into consideration, including our unique genetic makeup, nutrition, exercise, stress, environmental toxicity, social relationships, and treat the body as a whole. We use the latest diagnostic tools and technologies from Integrative and Functional medicine, and combine it with Conventional medicine to help identify the critical imbalances that cause illness. Our goal is to get to the root cause of ailments and not just to mask the symptoms temporarily.

We practice patient-centered, not disease-centered, medicine. We provide answers. This is the way medicine should be.

WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE?

Dr. Shezi Kirmani

Integrative Medicine is healing-oriented medicine that takes account of the whole person, is informed by evidence, and makes use of all appropriate therapeutic approaches, both conventional and alternative.

Integrative medicine combines modern medicine with established approaches from around the world. By joining modern medicine with proven practices from other healing traditions, Integrative Practitioners are better able to relieve suffering, reduce stress, maintain the well-being, and enhance the resilience of their patients.

The principles of Integrative Medicine:

  • A true partnership between patient and practitioner in the healing process
  • Use of both conventional and alternative methods to facilitate the body’s innate healing response
  • Consideration of all factors that influence health, wellness and disease, including mind & body, spirit as well as community
  • Use of natural, effective, less-invasive interventions whenever possible

 

WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE?

Dr. Shezi Kirmani

Functional Medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century.

Functional medicine shifts the traditional disease-centered focus of medical care to a more patient-centered approach. It addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine physicians look at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic diseases.

The principles of Functional Medicine:

  • Understanding of the biochemical individuality of each human being, based on the concepts of genetic and environmental uniqueness
  • Awareness of the evidence that supports a patient-centered rather than a disease-centered approach to treatment
  • Search for a dynamic balance among the internal and external body, mind, and spirit
  • Familiarity with the web-like interconnections of internal physiological factors
  • Identification of health as a positive vitality, not merely the absence of disease, emphasizing those factors that encourage the enhancement of a vigorous physiology
  • Promotion of organ reserve as the means to enhance the health span, not just the life span, of each patient
