Every body is different, and your personal needs vary.

We treat a variety of conditions to see you live well!

Acute and Chronic Pain

Acute and chronic pain, whether stemming from injury, surgery, or chronic conditions, can be managed effectively through integrative care which combines physical therapy and mind-body therapies. This holistic approach helps to alleviate pain, reduce inflammation, and improve overall quality of life.

Suggested Treatment: 

Adrenal Fatigue

Adrenal fatigue, characterized by persistent tiredness and other symptoms resulting from chronic stress, can benefit from integrative care. Treatments such as stress management techniques, nutritional support, and hormone balancing therapies can restore adrenal function and enhance energy levels.

Alcohol / Substance Use Treatment and Recovery
Statistics are bleak: SAMHSA’s 2020 National Survey on Drug Use and Health reports that approximately 19.3 million people aged 18 or older had a substance use disorder in the past year.

The terminology can be confusing: addiction, substance abuse, and substance use disorders are terms most commonly used to define, what the American Society of Addiction Medicine, calls addiction: “Addiction is a treatable, chronic medical disease involving complex interactions among brain circuits, genetics, the environment, and an individual’s life experiences.” People with addiction use substances or engage in behaviors that become compulsive and often continue despite harmful consequences. continues by explaining:


The Disease Model of Addiction

Addiction is defined as a disease by most medical associations, including the American Medical Association and the American Society of Addiction Medicine. 

Like diabetes, cancer, and heart disease, addiction is caused by a combination of behavioral, psychological, environmental and biological factors. Genetic risk factors account for about half of the likelihood that an individual will develop addiction.

Addiction involves changes in the functioning of the brain and body due to persistent use of nicotine, alcohol and/or other substances.

The consequences of untreated addiction often include other physical and mental health disorders that require medical attention. If left untreated over time, addiction becomes more severe, disabling, and life-threatening.

Treatment for Addiction and Substance use Disorders

As disheartening as it may be to recognize that the condition persists in a loved one, friend, or oneself, there is a silver lining in this cloud: prevention efforts and treatment approaches for addiction are generally as successful as those for other chronic diseases. 

At Advanced Integrative Care, we specialize in the treatment of

Angina, CAD, HTN

Integrative care for angina, coronary artery disease (CAD), and hypertension (HTN) includes a combination of lifestyle interventions, stress management, and dietary modifications alongside conventional medical treatments. This comprehensive care can improve heart health and reduce the risk of cardiovascular events.

Anxiety, Depression, PTSD


Relieving Anxiety, Insomnia, Depression, and Pain

Ditch the Meds

​Prescription medications attempt to target an issue or imbalance in the body with the use of chemicals. But your body is both chemical and electrical. And since an enormous part of the nervous system is controlled by internal electrical impulses. why treat your body with chemicals in the form of pills or injections?​

What Alpha-Stim Is and How It Works

Alpha-Stim is a small device that generates unique, patented waveforms to modulate the cells’ signals to return to baseline, normal functioning. Using a method called cranial electrotherapy stimulation (CES), a current (actually, a microcurrent– so tiny, just millionths of an ampere, and so gentle that most people don’t even feel it) is administered to patients through attachable clips.

Alpha-Stim begins at the electron level, allowing your body’s cells to return to their natural functioning state and help induce a pleasant, relaxed feeling of well-being and provide long-lasting, cumulative relief without the risk of negative effects such as tolerance and medication addiction.

It can be used on its own or in conjunction with physical therapy, medication, and other forms of pain management.

Autoimmune Diseases
Much attention has focused on the human immune system of late. 

The Immune System Defined

In its simplest terms, the overall function of the immune system is to prevent or limit infection. The immune system is complex and pervasive. There are numerous cell types that either circulate throughout the body or reside in a particular tissue. Each cell type plays a unique role, with different ways of recognizing problems, communicating with other cells, and performing their functions.

Click here for more about your immune system and how you can help keep it healthy.

Generally, the body does an impressive job of regulating itself, however, complications can arise when it does not function properly.  For people suffering from autoimmune disorders, the body may feel as if it is under siege.

Immune system disorders cause abnormally low activity or overactivity of the immune system.  Some issues are less pervasive, such as pollen allergy, while others are extensive, such as genetic disorders that wipe out the presence or function of an entire set of immune cells. In cases of immune system overactivity, the body attacks and damages its own tissues (autoimmune diseases). Immune deficiency diseases decrease the body’s ability to fight invaders, causing vulnerability to infections.

Causes of Autoimmune Disorders

The NCBI states that:

  • 30% of all autoimmune diseases are connected to genetic predisposition
  • 70 % are due to environmental factors, including toxic chemicals, dietary components, gut dysbiosis, and infections. ​

Autoimmune Disorders

Healthline indicates that there are more than 80 different autoimmune diseases. Here are 14 of the most common ones.

  1. Type 1 diabetes
  2. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA)
  3. Psoriasis/psoriatic arthritis
  4. Multiple sclerosis
  5. Systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE)
  6. Addison’s disease
  7. Graves’ disease (overactive thyroid)
  8. Sjögren’s syndrome
  9. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis (underactive thyroid)
  10. Myasthenia gravis
  11. Autoimmune vasculitis
  12. Pernicious anemia
  13. Celiac disease
  14. Inflammatory bowel disease

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) is a term used to describe conditions that cause inflammation in the lining of the intestinal wall. Each type of IBD affects a different part of the GI tract.

How We Can Help

With so many conditions associated with autoimmune disorders, diagnosing might seem daunting. However, we employ Avise CTD testing.

AVISE CTD is an accurate, comprehensive, and innovative rheumatic disease diagnostic test that uses patented CB-CAPs technology. AVISE CTD can provide us with the information we need to help you get a diagnosis. 

AVISE testing uses patented biomarkers and the highest quality standards to provide us with accurate results to help make an accurate diagnosis. When combined with our clinical assessment, AVISE testing can provide the information necessary to help make a dierential diagnosis.

With the convenience of a single blood draw, AVISE CTD can save time and money and help get you on the path to better health. Getting an accurate and early diagnosis depends on you communicating your symptoms to your physician. That information, along with accurate test results may help assist in an earlier diagnosis.

Brain Fog

Brain fog, often manifesting as confusion or a lack of mental clarity, can be addressed through integrative care that includes nutritional adjustments, cognitive therapy, and lifestyle changes aimed at enhancing mental function and overall cognitive health.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) can be treated through integrative care by employing a combination of energy management strategies, nutritional support, and gentle physical therapy. This approach helps to increase energy levels and improve daily functioning.

Colitis, IBS, Crohn's Disease, Leaky Gut

Integrative care for gastrointestinal issues such as colitis, IBS, Crohn’s Disease, and leaky gut involves dietary modifications, stress reduction techniques, and targeted supplements to heal the gut lining and reduce inflammation, improving digestive health.

Diabetes Mellitus

In diabetes management, integrative care includes dietary counseling, physical activity, and stress reduction techniques alongside conventional medications. This helps in managing blood sugar levels and reducing complications associated with diabetes.


Fibromyalgia, characterized by widespread pain and fatigue, can be managed through integrative care that includes pain management techniques, stress reduction, and sleep improvement strategies to enhance quality of life.

Immune Resistance

To combat immune resistance, integrative care focuses on boosting the immune system through nutritional support, lifestyle changes, and targeted supplements, alongside conventional therapies when necessary.

Insomnia (Sleep Restoration and Optimization)

Integrative care addresses insomnia by combining sleep hygiene education, behavioral therapy, and relaxation techniques to restore and optimize sleep patterns, improving overall health and well-being.

Joint Disorders

For joint disorders, integrative care uses a combination of physical therapy, dietary adjustments, and complementary therapies like ozone to reduce pain and improve mobility.

Menopause & Andropause

Integrative care for menopause and andropause addresses hormonal imbalances through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, lifestyle changes, and nutritional counseling to alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life.


Migraines can be effectively managed through integrative care by identifying and managing triggers, employing stress reduction techniques, and using both conventional medications and alternative treatments like ozone to reduce frequency and severity of attacks.

Peripheral Neuropathy

Integrative care for peripheral neuropathy involves nutritional support, physical therapies, and pain management strategies to alleviate symptoms and improve nerve function.

Post Covid Syndrome

Had Covid and Just Feel Off?

Many of us have had Covid in some fashion or another. Regardless of the severity, sometimes even after a “full” recovery, there are nagging and lingering symptoms. It’s not your imagination. Common complaints include:

  • Brain fog
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Chest pain
  • PTSD

Methods of Treatment

We have been helping patients successfully treat and manage Long Term Covid symptoms. Often the “prescription” is a balance of medical management (our role) and self-management (the patient’s behaviors).

We tailor Long Covid treatments according to the condition of the patient. One size does not fit all. In addition to discussing exercise and sleep rituals, we may recommend clinical testing (such as chest X-rays, EKG), and other imaging and labs (including full blood or specific blood panel testing) to best determine the most appropriate therapy.

Many patients have one or more additional conditions such as diabetes, respiratory, kidney, or heart disease co-occurring with Long Covid. We are mindful of those conditions as we examine a patient’s underlining cause of symptoms and make informed judgments about treating Long Covid.

The Changing Landscape of Long Covid Protocols

Late last year, we attended the New York State Department of Health on The Use of Multidisciplinary Approaches to Long COVID Care advocating the use of holistic / patient-centered approaches. Since that time, additional recommendations from a variety of disciplines have yielded other successful approaches. We diligently monitor these updates and bring all proven strategies to our patients. Even as the treatments change, we are guided by science and the data.

It is unlikely that these conditions will go away on their own. Please contact us by email or phone (716) 277-0267 to discuss what you’re experiencing and how we might be able to help you feel like yourself again.  

Skin Conditions

Skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis, and acne can benefit from integrative care that includes dietary changes, stress management, and topical treatments to improve skin health and appearance.

Viral and Bacterial Conditions

Integrative care enhances the treatment of viral and bacterial infections by combining conventional medical treatments with immune-boosting nutritional supplements, herbal medicines, and lifestyle changes to accelerate recovery and prevent recurrence.
