Certifications and Training
Rina Kapoor, MD
After over a decade of practicing within the confines of Internal Medicine, I realized that the system I was operating within wasn’t allowing me to make the difference that I knew my patients needed. I was frustrated and burnt out, tired of handing out prescriptions rather than helping my patients get to the root of their health issues. Through my own personal battles with gut dysfunction, fatigue, and mold toxicity, I came across the approaches of Integrative and Functional Medicine. With the use of advanced labs and genetic testing, I was able to customize my diet, lifestyle, and supplements to initiate my own healing. I came to realize that I needed to practice a different kind of medicine. I wanted to embrace what I have always intuitively believed: that the mind and body are inseparably linked, lifestyle and nutrition are more vital than any medication, and prevention is the best tool we have to manage disease.
“The doctor of the future will give no medication but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame, diet and in the cause and prevention of disease.” — Thomas A. Edison (1847-1931)
