Our philosophy and belief is that every illness is basically a disturbance of the normal physiology somewhere in the body caused by and triggered by various environmental agents. Dr Rubina Azam will work with you to find the root cause of your illness, and once that root cause is identified and removed, the downstream effects can be reversed as well.
To treat every patient as a whole person, to understand the system, not just the symptom, to find the underlying cause before prescribing any supplement or conventional medication.
To educate families on how to look at their bodies and minds and spirits as one integrated system and to understand that any imbalance in one of these three areas will cause symptoms which may not be treatable with conventional medications and pharmaceuticals. To enable every patient to understand their body and their mind and their needs and identify their strengths and weaknesses.
