Functional Medicine Q&A

Functional medicine is medical care aimed at understanding the origins of complex diseases to prevent and treat them. Many things influence your health, including genetics, environment, and lifestyle. These things make your health needs unique.

Modern medicine focuses on treating the disease, not you. Functional medicine combines traditional medical practices with alternative therapies, treating your whole health, getting to the root cause, not just your symptoms or disease.

Dr. Doniparthi uses advanced lab testing and diagnostic techniques to find the root cause of your health problem. He takes a holistic approach to health includes working with patients to evaluate their unique genetic makeup, environment, and overall physical and mental health. 

Patients receive individualized treatment plans that lead to successful health outcomes and an understanding of how to sustain their reclaimed physical and mental health moving forward.

Functional medicine takes a holistic and comprehensive approach to long COVID. Dr. Doniparthi uses his advanced diagnostic testing to find the origin of your symptoms to create an effective treatment.

Long COVID causes ongoing health problems after you’ve had COVID-19. Anyone infected with the virus that causes COVID-19 can get long COVID. If you continue to feel unwell four or more weeks after your initial infection, even if your symptoms seem to come and go, you might have long COVID.

Long COVID symptoms vary but can include:

  • Fatigue that makes it hard to function 
  • Worsening symptoms after physical or mental exertion
  • Fever
  • Shortness of breath
  • Coughing
  • Chest pain
  • Headache
  • Sleep problems
  • Changes in smell or taste
  • Depression
  • Diarrhea
  • Joint pain
  • GI Issues 

 

No single test can diagnose long COVID, and many people have difficulty finding treatments that improve their symptoms because they vary, however Dr. Doniparthi utilizes testing that is available for COVID long haulers, the 14 Cytokine Panel Test.  

The Cytokine 14 panel tests for the elevation or decreased levels of cytokines following COVID-19 infection or post-COVID-19 vaccine injury leading to long haul symptoms. The results may be helpful in better understanding the pathophysiology of immunological, infectious, or inflammatory disorders or may be used for research purposes.

If you suffer from any long-term symptoms brought on by the COVID-19 virus, vaccine, or both, Dr. Doniparthi provides specialized oral and intravenous (IV) therapy that can restore your health.

Dr. Doniparthi is an addiction treatment physician who uses functional medicine when evaluating patients for his addiction therapy program. The information he gathers helps him create personalized recovery programs that improve the chances of successful treatment.

Dr. Doniparthi also uses IV therapy to restore nutritional health and a proprietary treatment called BR+NAD (brain restoration plus nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) therapy that helps heal the addicted brain.
