Our Approach

We employ multiple healing modalities in addressing our patients needs. Some of them are explained below.

Conventional Medicine

We believe that conventional medicine has much to offer patients when used prudently and wisely. In combination with other proven modalities, it can be a powerful tool in healing many ailments.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine is a systems biology-based approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of disease.  This field of medicine looks at the human body from cellular to organ levels and involves the study of fundamental biological processes which cuts through organ systems and medical specialties.

Natural Medicine

Supplements, nutrients, and vitamins play an important role in fighting illnesses and keeping us healthy. By focusing on proven natural remedies, which also includes diet and lifestyle changes, we can help the body’s vital ability to heal and maintain itself.

Mind-Body Medicine

Stress is a major culprit in many ailments and our state of mind has a great impact on how our body responds to stress. A well-adjusted mind-body utilizes relaxation response as a healthy way of dealing with daily stress. The body’s natural relaxation response can be triggered using breathing techniques, meditation, progressive muscle relaxation, and guided imagery. Through workshops and private consultations, we will address stress and ways of dealing with stress.

Other Useful Approaches  

Other methods that can be utilized in the integrative approach may include acupuncture, aromatherapy, ayurvedic medicine, homeopathy, massage, and chiropractic care, etc.

Diagnostic Testing

In addition to a detailed history and physical exam, we employ cutting edge, advanced laboratory testing to help us diagnose and treat your child’s illness. We offer detailed testing of your child’s hormonal, digestive and immune systems as well as your child’s current burden of main toxins and infections.

Wellness Program

You do not need to be ill to visit us. We believe that health is not just a lack of disease but also a sense of well-being. The primary goal of our wellness program is to enhance your child’s ability to experience optimal health. This is not your typical yearly physical but rather the ultimate “tune-up” visit. During this visit, we can also help you to identify your child’s risk for diseases and give you information that can protect your child from illness. We can help you craft a personalized health plan for your child by combining the scientific approach of Western medicine and the wisdom of Eastern medicine.

Team Approach

We are pleased to offer a fresh approach to addressing your child’s health issues by also having available the services of a registered Doctor of Pharmacy during different stages of your child’s treatment process. This novel concept in addressing health issues is quite unique in this area and offers you with more resources and experience in addressing your child’s health concerns.

This team approach will be utilized in areas such as:

  • Medication consultation
  • Supplement Selection
  • Detoxification process
  • Nutritional Counseling

-> A Personalized Comprehensive Evaluation:

We specialize in physical ailments and behavioral issues affecting children and teens.  Our approach includes a personalized comprehensive evaluation of mind-body connection, digestion, assimilation, metabolism, deficiencies, allergies, and toxicities, etc. Our experience has shown us that many symptoms and conditions unresponsive to conventional treatment may yield to the application of nature’s remedies. We can also help you to craft a health maintenance program based on your past medical history and genetic risk factors.

-> Science-Based Therapies:

Our integrative and functional medicine therapeutic approaches are scientifically based.  The therapies used at our clinic are based on scientific studies compiled over the years by Dr. Zaiim. Our treatments continue to be guided and defined by the most recent science-based research.
