Integrative Medicine Treats the Whole Person

Integrative medicine looks at the patient holistically, and may assess a patient in different ways in addition to traditional medical examinations and lab tests. These assessments are useful in telling us how the body is functioning, and in identifying  the root cause of your health issue. Identifying and treating the root cause of illness or imbalance  is a tenet of integrative and functional medicine. We offer more treatment options and therapies for healing mind, body and spirit, not just treating the symptoms.

Holistic & Biological Dentistry: Biological dentists use only safe, mercury-free, biocompatible materials and view your oral health as an integral part of overall health. Call 202-237-7000 ext. 2 to learn more about 21st century family dentistry or Request a dental appointment.

"NIHA saved my health and my life- twice!"

I first came to NIHA in 1999. After that I went for 5 years without so much as a cold. I'm 69 years old and on no prescription medications at all! I attribute that to the health restoration from NIHA when I worked with the practice from late 1999 into 2001.
But recently I have had several other issues with pain and diverticulitis and abcesses found in my colon. I went through my insurance and sought medical advice from traditional physicians. In a short period of time, they recommended that I get a pic line for antibiotics, and schedule a hospital stay for colon re-section surgery.

I know the importance of a whole body approach, a healthy diet, and practicing meditation and Reiki (Master level) on a daily basis and do my best to make my health a priority.The thought of colon surgery as my only option for healing did not fit with my understanding of what my body needed. So- I went back to NIHA because I needed a program with hope. I needed to find a physician who knew what was going on with me internally and could help me address my health issues.
Dr. Margarita Kullick is that person. She was able to read the MRI and immediately put me on a protocol addressing colon inflammation, diverticulitis pouches, two abscesses, two fistula and boosting overall health. Both my previous and current health issues were stress induced but created extremely different symptoms.
Now, months after being on Dr. Kullick's protocol, I feel the best I have felt in 10 years. My body has come back into balance to heal itself. The change is unbelievable. I no longer have colon inflammation, the diverticulitis pouches are no longer swollen, the abcesses are smaller and healing, and the fistula has healed.
She is wonderful and I adore her. NIHA has saved my health- and my life- twice! It is worth every penny to me. 11/17
