At the Connecticut Center for Integrative Medicine in Stamford, Connecticut, Drs Robert Kachko, Paul Epstein, and Veena Verma-Dzik offer solutions for overall health and wellness. This includes the integration of nutraceutical supplements into your already healthy, balanced diet.
What are nutraceutical supplements?
In today’s society, many men and women have an obsession with diets. Diets are not only ineffective in the long term, but they can cause the development of poor eating habits. It is also not a sustainable lifestyle. Instead, naturopathic physicians encourage patients to consider nutraceutical supplements. These supplements include the vitamins and minerals you need to feel your best every day and can be administered by pill or IV, depending on your preference. These supplements are tailored to your unique needs.
How do I know if nutraceutical supplements are right for me?
During your consultation appointment with our team, you are evaluated to determine what support your system needs to function at its best. We conduct genetic and microbiome analyses to fully understand your genetic makeup and how it impacts your health outcomes. Some of the challenges you face nutritionally may be overcome with the knowledge and experience of our qualified team. We can also work with you in finding the right types of foods for your body and body type, ensuring you achieve a healthy weight and sustain it over time with the integration of nutraceutical supplements. Combining education and knowledge with supplements of vitamins and minerals is the best way to look and feel your best–and to provide support for your body as your needs change with age.

Dr. Robert Kachko discusses about nutraceuticals at CT Center For Integrative Medicine
What are nutraceuticals?
Hi, this is Dr. Robert Kachko. I’m here to talk to you about nutraceuticals that we use in our practice.
Nutraceuticals might be a funny-sounding word, but basically, it’s high doses of nutrients or botanical medicines applied in precise and targeted ways for each condition.
Almost every patient who comes in, in addition to the comprehensive care we provide that includes acupuncture, IV therapy, mind-body medicine techniques, and comprehensive functional lab testing, usually gets a recommendation for nutraceuticals.
Why would an individual need nutraceuticals?
The nutraceutical that we use are of the highest quality and are specific to your needs, often prescribed either based on your health history or the testing done.
As one example, we do many nutrient testing in our office, and many of our patients are deficient in vitamin D.
Vitamin D is very important for a host of conditions, including the prevention of heart disease, cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
So, when we have your particular vitamin D levels, we can prescribe a well-absorbed nutraceutical to get your vitamin D levels up.
Is getting nutraceuticals safe?
There are dozens of other nutraceuticals that we may consider for each patient, and they’re always prescribed with precision and personalized care.
The nutraceuticals that we use are also proven to be effective and safe, and for this reason, they are only available through doctor’s offices.
