General Health At Whole Gut Health and Wellness, we understand the fundamental importance of comprehensive general health care. General health encompasses the overall well-being of an individual, extending beyond the boundaries of specific medical conditions.


We firmly believe that by addressing and optimizing general health, we can help our patients achieve a higher quality of life and better manage their gastrointestinal health.

We recognize that the body is a complex system with various interconnected factors that influence overall wellness. By taking a holistic view and considering the interplay between physical, mental, and emotional health, we provide our patients with the tools and support they need to achieve optimal well-being

In today's last-paced world, it is increasingly important to prioritize general health. Factors such as stress, poor nutrition, sedentary lifestyles, and environmental toxins can significantly impact our overall wellness.

Dr. Alexandra Shustina, a Board-Certified Gastroenterologist, combines the best of conventional medicine with evidence-based integrative therapies. We believe in a patient-centered approach, taking the time to understand each individual's unique circumstances and tailoring treatment plans accordingly. By considering the whole person and addressing underlying imbalances, we aim to not only alleviate symptoms but also enhance overall well-being. We understand the importance of an individualized approach and are dedicated to providing compassionate care that focuses on your unique goals and aspirations.


At our practice, we believe in providing comprehensive and personalized treatment options to enhance general health. Our approach combines conventional medical practices with holistic techniques, personalized care, and lifestyle modifications. By addressing the underlying causes of symptoms and adopting a multidimensional perspective, we strive to optimize the overall well-being of our patients.

Treatment options for general health may include:

Nutritional Counseling
A healthy and balanced diet plays a vital role in maintaining general health. Our experienced healthcare professionals provide personalized nutritional counseling to help patients make informed dietary choices, manage weight effectively, and support overall well-being.

Lifestyle Modifications
We recognize the impact of lifestyle choices on general health. Our team works closely with patients to identify areas for improvement and develop strategies for incorporating healthy habits into their daily lives. This may include stress management techniques, regular exercise, proper sleep hygiene, and more.

Integrative Therapies
In addition to conventional medical treatments, we integrate therapies to support general health. These may include acupuncture, herbal medicine, mind-body techniques, and other evidence-based holistic modalities. Integrative therapies can help alleviate symptoms, reduce stress, enhance overall vitality, and promote general well-being.

General Health Syntoms We Regularly Encounter

Adverse effects of medications
We understand that medications can sometimes have unintended adverse effects on the body, including gastrointestinal symptoms. Our experienced team conducts a thorough evaluation to identify and understand these adverse effects. We then work closely with our patients to develop strategies to manage and minimize the impact of these symptoms. This may involve adjusting medication dosages, exploring alternative medications with fewer side effects, or implementing supportive therapies to counteract the adverse effects.

Brain Fog
Brain fog, characterized by cognitive difficulties, a lack of mental clarity, and memory issues, can significantly impact daily life. In our practice, we take a comprehensive approach to addressing brain fog by investigating its potential underlying causes. We consider factors such as gut-brain axis imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, chronic inflammation, hormonal imbalances, and lifestyle factors. Based on the individual's assessment, we develop personalized treatment plans that may include dietary adjustments, nutritional supplements, stress management techniques, targeted gut health protocols, and other therapies to support overall brain function and alleviate brain fog symptoms.

IV Management
Weight management plays a crucial role in promoting general health. Excess weight can contribute to various health issues, including gastrointestinal problems and hormonal imbalances. In our practice, we recognize that weight management is not a one-size-fits-all approach. We take a personalized approach, considering factors such as individual metabolism, gut health, hormonal balance, nutritional status, and lifestyle factors. Our treatment plans may involve a combination of dietary modifications, customized exercise programs, behavior modification techniques, stress management strategies, and ongoing support to help patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight. By addressing weight concerns, we aim to improve overall health outcomes and reduce the risk of associated conditions.

At our practice, we have witnessed remarkable success in treating a wide range of symptoms associated with general health concerns. By employing integrative medicine techniques and gastroenterological expertise, we have effectively addressed adverse effects from medications, alleviated brain fog, restoring hormonal balance, and facilitated weight management. It's important to note that the success of treatment may vary for each individual depending on their specific circumstances and adherence to the personalized treatment plan. We are committed to delivering the highest quality of care and working closely with our patients to optimize their general health and overall well-being.

Together, we can work towards restoring balance, improving your symptoms, and helping you achieve long-term digestive wellness.
