05-22-16 Join Leah Marie for an interview with the founders of Functional Mind Optimal Medical Solutions. Dr. Achina Stein, DO, DFAPA, ABIHM and Sally Davidson, RN, MS, ANP-BC, IFMCP will be sharing their innovative and holistic approach to patients’ care.
Dr. Stein uses functional medicine to help patients find the underlying causes of illness and the nutritional and biochemical imbalances that may be contributing to them. Functional medicine is personalized medicine that uncovers the root cause of disease instead of focusing on the suppression of symptoms. Dr. Stein will search for underlying triggers that are contributing to your illness through cutting edge lab testing. She will tailor the intervention to your specific needs as an individual. She may use diet, dietary supplements, lifestyle changes or medication to treat your illness but will seek the least invasive way to help your body restore balance. She seeks to promote wellness and create hope, health and healing by partnering with you.
Sally had been a nurse practitioner for 16 years and an RN for 18 years before returning to college to obtain her master’s degree. She is the 3rd nurse practitioner in her family and having lively discussions with her sisters over the years helped mold her style of practice. Although she never was able to practice with her sisters, they often attended conferences together during the last 25 years. They were repeatedly drawn to the lectures that were more holistic in nature. They held a strong belief among themselves that patients could be better served through diet, exercise and lifestyle changes. The three sisters, always ahead of their time, were prescribing probiotics, fish oil and vitamin D long before their colleagues. When Sally discovered Functional Medicine, she knew that this was where she belonged. She spent the last 3 years attending the educational modules through the Institute for Functional Medicine to become certified in this field.
