As an ER doctor on the front lines of acute care, I thought the entire medical system was broken.
I created a new path that embraces a personalized approach combining the power of epigenetics, lifestyle, and nutrition to achieve optimal health and vibrancy.
Hi there, I’m Dr. Nashat
For the last 20+ years I’ve been on the front line of acute illness (ER doc here … and yes, these past couple years have been tough.)
Despite spending two decades in the trenches of conventional medicine, I’ve always had a passion for health, wellness and preventative medicine. There was always a “missing link”, I just couldn’t figure it out.
Before we go any further into my background, it’s critical for me to share my story. There was a critical event that changed my life forever and propelled me into a new arena where I felt compelled to forge my own path in the field of functional medicine.
It starts with my mom.
My mom was my best friend and the person I trusted with absolutely EVERYTHING. She was my northstar and inspired my career and passion for health.
BUT…. in May of 2018, the unimaginable happened. I lost my mom suddenly. My mom…who strictly ate organic, never touched a cigarette, exercised 4-5 times per week and did everything “right” was diagnosed with a neurodegenerative disease and rapidly declined right before my eyes…at the age of 66.
As a practicing physician working on the frontline of acute care “saving lives” daily, I could do NOTHING to help my mom. I felt helpless and disempowered.
We bounced around from city to city, specialist to specialist and every time, left without answers.
For me medicine, as I had known it, was broken .
How could I have lost the healthiest person I knew, so quickly? Is there something I could have done to help her prevent her sudden illness?
I had witnessed first-hand the need for a more comprehensive approach to healthcare and vowed to reimagine a new way of caring for patients.
For years, I had added Functional Medicine training to my 20+ years of medical experience. I received my formal Functional Medicine training through the prestigious Institute of Functional Medicine, American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Institute for Integrative Women’s Health, as well as completed a mentorship with The Kalish Institute.
II am committed to creating a movement away from the sick-care model of medicine and towards one where disease is reversed and/or prevented. My goal is to make my patients feel and look their best through lifestyle modifications, optimization of epigenetic expression, movement, nutrition, mindfulness, meditation, and the strategic implementation of natural supplements.
My evidence-based approach is aimed at re-igniting the body’s innate ability to heal itself by optimizing and nourishing its conditions. My approach is one that is collaborative. I will meet you where you are and we will work together to achieve YOUR health goals.
