It all Begins with Lifestyle modification
Both Doctors Dos Ramos at Integrated Health Solutions are passionate about healing. We are all about restoring your health and ensuring that you stay healthy by giving you the knowledge, the tools, the dietary and supplemental advice (and sometimes the medicine) to help you heal from dis-ease, maintain or better your current health. We are continuously studying the physiological and biochemical pathways to understand possible mechanisms that contribute to the proper functioning of the body. We take the time to look at what you do daily, what is going in and what comes out – including all the physiology and biochemistry in between.
Illness and disease are, simply put, your body’s way of showing you that it is at dis-ease. The root of this dis-ease varies widely from person to person but, apart from certain hereditary conditions, it essentially boils down to some kind of imbalance in the physiological or biochemical pathways that have contributed to you becoming ill. How we look after our bodies, soul and spirit ultimately determine how healthy we are. What we eat and drink, how, when and how much we sleep, how much we stress, how we relax and have fun and how we recharge our spiritual batteries all determine how healthy we are. To complicate matters, we cannot avoid understanding the hormonal symphony, hormones are responsible for our basic life functions and our ability to survive

I have a special interest in digestive imbalances as much of your immune system is regulated here, while healing the digestive system many illnesses such as allergies, autoimmune disease, arthritis and rheumatoid arthritis, to name a few are improved if not healed.
I also have a special interest in hormonal imbalances, our hormones are like a symphony, they all need to be regulated and once in balance the sound they produce is of health, wellness and vibrancy. No one hormone is more important than another, healing the symphony of hormones will deal with issues such as adrenal burnout, anxiety, stress, depression, fatigue, cravings, weight gain, fertility etc.
Some important principles that I try my best to adhere to:
I continuously strive to understand the physiology of how the body functions, I assist patients in correcting their physiology once we understand the root cause of their dis-ease.
I also have a desire to EDUCATE people about how their bodies work and how it is often time within their reach to heal themselves. To be healthy we need to eat well, sleep well, have good energy, good libido and generally feel happy and content, I desire to facilitate my patients on their healing journey.
