We are thrilled to bring our services to a new location
We are a healthcare practice that strives to integrate the best of conventional and complementary medicine in a caring and healing environment. We believe that both health and disease are functions of physical, emotional, nutritional, and spiritual influences. Many health issues are rooted in a patient’s personal biography – the story of your life – and are most effectively treated by addressing root causes rather than symptoms alone.
Dr. Jerry P. Gore, MD
Dr. Gore received his medical degree at University of Illinois School of medicine, and then received his post graduate education at Northwestern University's Institute of psychiatry while also completing a 3 year program at the Gestalt Institute of Chicago. He then studied Yoga and Tai Chi and began an apprenticeship with Dr. Ballentine at the Center for Holistic Medicine at the Himalayan Institute, then in Glenview, Illinois, which was the first of its kind in the Midwest.
Functional Medicine Physician
By supporting the basic naturopathic principle of working with the body versus against the body, Dr Lazzell is able to bring your body’s innate healing ability to the forefront. She works with general lifestyle modifications such as diet, movement, stress, and detoxification to optimize overall health while also being able to support you with higher interventions such as direct supplemental support, IV nutrients, and peptide therapy.
Functional Medicine Physician
Dr. Parisa Samsami is a Chiropractic Physician specializing in Functional Medicine. She has great success in treating patients unable to find answers in the traditional medical paradigm. She places a strong emphasis on patient education and believes that diet and lifestyle play an important role in achieving optimal health and chronic disease prevention.

Can I please have some more pain and chaos?” Said nobody ever—but the truth is, any area of pain or chaos we may be experiencing is an attempt to alert us to what we need to change. The pain is saying to us, “hey you! I’m trying to get your attention here, because “this” isn’t working anymore, so can you please make some changes?!” Nobody likes pain and chaos, but there is a purpose and positive intention, which is to serve as a notification center that alerts us to what is no longer serving us.
Heading into Winter can feel bleak. We are getting less sunlight, and perhaps less exercise, than we have been accustomed to during warmer months. The cycles of seasons may also be mirrored in our own hormonal cycles, as suggested by data studied by The Weizmann Institute of Science (as reported on in Scientific American). Have […]

But how exactly does changing someone’s energy help […]
