Teresa Fuller M.D., Ph.D., Holistic Pediatrician, Joins National Integrated Health Associates

Posted by admin on Thu, Feb 06, 2014

National Integrated Health Associates, NIHA, is pleased to announce Teresa Fuller M.D., Ph.D, Holistic Pediatrician, as part of the integrative medical team.

Dr. Fuller is Board Certified in Pediatrics and Integrative Holistic Medicine.  

Dr. Teresa Fuller, M.D., Ph.D,  is double board certified in pediatrics and integrative holistic medicine. Having a doctorate in physiology, she understands the complex metabolic processes of the human body. This powerful combination of the pediatric, holistic and physiology disciplines places Dr. Fuller in a unique position to positively impact the health of children and young adults.  

In her practice during the last ten years, Dr. Fuller has seen increasing numbers of children suffering from chronic conditions such as ADHD, allergies, chronic pain, autism and even traditionally adult diseases such as type 2 diabetes.  Often, medication offers only partial relief while the root causes of these disorders goes undiagnosed. This has prompted her to learn how to identify the root cause of chronic illness, and use a holistic approach to correct underlying nutritional deficiencies and toxic accumulations to restore health.

Caring for the Whole Child

In assessing a patient, the integrative physician will inquire not only about health history and symptoms, but will also ask about diet, exercise, stress, home and school environment, and emotional well-being. A treatment plan may include a nutrition plan, herbals, detoxification and perhaps antibiotics, designed to correct deficiencies and enhance the natural healing process. Dr. Fuller fully supports parents to make educated, informed, individual health care decisions for their families.
