Dr. Nic Peters, MD FAAP

Summary

Dr. Nic works with children, young adults, and their families coping with chronic health issues such as gastrointestinal distress, fatigue, inattention, hyperactivity, and food and environmental sensitivities. These conditions and others can be difficult to treat by conventional medicine but frequently benefit from an Integrative and Functional Medicine approach. He believes in the power of listening to each patient’s story. By using science, clinical wisdom, and innovative tools, he can often identify the underlying causes of chronic diseases. These include predisposing factors, triggers, and events that preceded the shift from health to dis-ease and can be affected by genetics, nutrition, and lifestyle behaviors. He works with patients and families to create a personalized program by prescribing safe and effective, evidence-based treatments, behavior and dietary changes to seek optimum health.

Dr. Nic is a graduate of St. George's University School of Medicine. He completed Pediatrics residency at Dayton Children's Hospital in Ohio and Clinical Fellowship in Pediatric Hematology-Oncology at Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital in Cleveland.

Summary

Dr. Shah is internist and Gastroenterologist. She practices integrated and complementary medicine with principals of functional medicine. She is board certified in Functional medicine, gastroenterology, internal medicine, board of medical acupuncture and Arizona Board of homeopathy and integrated medicine. Functional medicine is a patient centered medicine that searches for root causes of illnesses and treats accordingly.

Dr. Shah has been practicing medicine for over 30 years. She has worked with countless patients throughout the years, helping augment their quality of life and giving them a voice in their care. With her experience in allopathic medicine, acupuncture, homeopathy, and training in functional medicine she works with her patients to guide them through their illness and help them navigate their medical path.

Dr. Shah says “Allopathic medicine is great for dealing with trauma, acute illness but falls short when dealing with chronic complex conditions. With knowledge and tools of allopathic medicine at my disposal I decided to explore other disciplines to gain more holistic understanding of how and why diseases occur, and how I can improve health and vitality of patient. I started with mind body Spirit Institute course offered by Harvard Medical School and have continued on that journey ever since.”

“My goal is to inspire hope and empower every patient to achieve the highest potential of well-being and vitality through functional medicine principles, integrated clinical practice and education.”

She treats multitudes of medical conditions. Just to name a few:
Leaky gut and associated Autoimmune conditions, Mold and Candida associated condition, Headache, Migraine, Muscle pain, body aches, Heavy metal toxicity, Fatigue, Fibromyalgia, Chronic fatigue syndrome, Adrenal fatigue, Thyroid conditions, Hormone imbalance, Food sensitivities & Gastrointestinal symptoms, IBS, Lyme, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer, Memory disorder, Brain Fog, chronic complex conditions involved in MS & ALS, Allergies, skin rash, eczema, psoriasis, Obesity, cholesterol and more.

Dr. Shah believes health and vitality is essential to human spirit. Highest expression of individual health is possible when you start looking at illness in light of who the person is who has the illness rather than what illness the person has. You can nurture the well-being of the whole person respecting physical, mental, emotional and spiritual needs.
