The journey to better health starts with our comprehensive approach to bloodwork and personalized medicine
Sick of feeling sick? Tired of being tired all the time? No matter what other doctors may have told you, your aches, pains, and symptoms are not “all in your head.” You have arrived at the right place to get real and highly personalized answers to the root causes of any chronic symptoms or conditions you may be experiencing. Often, to get to the bottom of perplexing and disruptive symptoms, at the Connecticut Center for Integrative Medicine in Stamford, we start with blood work. Our comprehensive approach transcends “standard” lab tests and “typical” health assessments.
In addition to their roles as experienced and talented naturopathic physicians and functional medicine providers, Drs Robert Kachko, Paul Epstein, and Veena Verma-Dzik also view themselves as “health care detectives.” They collect myriad information from comprehensive blood analyses (as well as other health assessments) and piece it together to partner with you in uncovering the root cause of your suffering. Our team can then address the sources of those limitations that constrain your ability to thrive and to feel your best.
Our thorough blood work assessment is always personalized for the individual. Some of the items we may test for include:
- Complete Blood Count (white and red blood cells)
- Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (electrolytes, protein, liver and kidney function)
- Lipids including High cholesterol
- Inflammation and Auto-Immune antibodies
- Elevated blood sugar
- Insulin resistance
- Leptin resistance
- Essential nutrients
- Hormone (thyroid, cortisol, sex hormones like estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone)
- Environmental factors (heavy metals, infections, viruses)
This information is powerful. We apply it to develop your one-of-a-kind, personalized medicine treatment plan. By assessing exactly what your body needs, we can tailor vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, targeted botanicals, and even precisely-recommended prescriptions for reversing chronic conditions and allowing your body to (efficiently) flourish. We might even recommend adjunctive therapies such as IV therapy, mind-body medicine or acupuncture to support your physiology and biochemistry.

Importance of comprehensive blood work and IV therapy.
How important is it to carry out a comprehensive assessment of blood work?
Hi, this is Dr. Robert Kachko. We take a comprehensive, holistic look at your health care needs.
To understand what your brain and body need, we have to do a thorough assessment to look and find the root cause of what’s keeping you from feeling your best.
For most of our patients, that comprehensive assessment often starts with blood work.
What can be analyzed through blood work?
We can use comprehensive blood work to look at lipids and high cholesterol, inflammation, elevated blood sugar, and insulin resistance.
We can assess for essential nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and fats. We can look to see how your hormones are functioning and balance them.
We can also see if there are any environmental causes that might contribute to how you’re feeling. This can be things like heavy metals or infections due to different viruses.
What are the steps taken after a comprehensive analysis of blood work?
Once we get a comprehensive look at the human body, we can create a targeted treatment plan. One of the most powerful therapies to help each individual with a personalized plan is IV nutrient therapy.
When it comes to IV therapy, we can help the body more efficiently by giving the body what it needs in terms of vitamins and minerals, antioxidants, targeted botanicals, and precisely recommended prescriptions.
What are the benefits of IV Therapy?
Once an individual gets IV therapy based on their unique needs, the body has an opportunity to flourish. Chronic conditions can be prevented and sometimes even be reversed.
At our practice, we first do an intense assessment and then create a customized treatment plan.
Alongside IV therapy, this plan might include things like acupuncture, mind-body medicine, and targeted nutraceuticals.
