General Questions

What is functional medicine and how does it differ from traditional medicine?

Functional medicine is a personalized, patient-centered approach that focuses on identifying and addressing the root cause of health problems. Unlike traditional medicine, which often treats symptoms, functional medicine aims to provide long-lasting solutions by considering the individual’s unique genetics, lifestyle, and environmental factors.

What types of health conditions can IVitality MD Clinic help with?

IVitality MD Clinic specializes in treating a wide range of chronic health conditions, including autoimmune disorders, digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, and chronic pain. Our personalized healthcare plans and natural health solutions are designed to address the underlying causes of your symptoms for long-lasting relief.

What is involved in a personalized healthcare plan?

A personalized healthcare plan is a tailored treatment strategy that takes into account your specific health needs, medical history, and lifestyle factors. At Texas Holistic MD Clinic, our functional medicine consultations involve thorough assessments and in-depth analysis to develop customized plans that may include nutritional counseling, lifestyle coaching, and targeted therapies to address your unique health concerns.

How does IVitality MD Clinic use integrative medicine services?

Integrative medicine services at IVitality MD Clinic combine the best of conventional and alternative healthcare approaches. By integrating evidence-based treatments with natural health solutions, we can create comprehensive treatment plans that effectively address the root causes of chronic health conditions.

Do you offer nutritional counseling services at IVitality MD Clinic?

Yes, we provide nutritional counseling services as part of our comprehensive approach to healthcare. Our team of experts will assess your dietary needs and create customized meal plans, as well as provide guidance on supplementation and nutritional strategies to support your overall health and wellness goals.

Can IVitality MD Clinic help with stress management and wellness lifestyle coaching?

Absolutely! Stress management and wellness lifestyle coaching are essential components of our holistic approach to healthcare. Our team works with you to develop effective strategies for managing stress, improving sleep quality, and optimizing your overall well-being through mindfulness practices, relaxation techniques, and healthy lifestyle habits.

What can I expect at my first appointment at IVitality MD Clinic?

Your first appointment at IVitality MD Clinic is our opportunity to thoroughly understand your healthcare needs. During this appointment, we will delve into your health history, perform a relevant physical exam, provide nutritional guidance, and create an individualized treatment plan focused on your health goals and condition. Our treatment plans incorporate multiple systems of medicine and may include nutrition recommendations, supplements, medications (if necessary), mind-body strategies, and exercise suggestions. Please note that the duration of this extensive visit will depend on the complexity of your case.

Do you accept Medicare/Medicaid or any private health insurances?

No, we don’t accept any kind of health insurance. The in-depth nature of our services in general is above and beyond the conventional “standard of care” and therefore are considered elective to most insurance companies. You can use FSA and HSA accounts for our services. We do everything we can to make sure our services are affordable and finances are not a barrier to receiving care that you need. Most of our patients are working-class or retired, normal people on fixed incomes who want to get healthy again.

What is your appointment cancellation policy?

We spend a lot of time with our patients and therefore have a limited number of available appointment slots. Please be courteous and provide at least a 3-business day notice of rescheduling or cancellation. Late cancellations or No Show will result in a 50% charge of your scheduled time.
This helps us ensure that we can meet the needs of all our patients who are waiting to get an appointment.

About Our Services

Autoimmune Disease

Autoimmune disorders are chronic conditions where the immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissues, such as the thyroid, skin, or joints. These disorders have become increasingly prevalent in recent years, now affecting approximately 1 in 5 (20%) Americans.

While conventional medicine often attributes the development of autoimmune disorders to genetic or environmental factors, it is becoming evident that a combination of specific factors contributes to their onset.

In essence, autoimmune diseases are not random or solely due to genetics or lifestyle. Instead, they result from a mix of root causes that impact individuals in unique ways.

Kidney Health

Chronic kidney disease (CKD) affects millions worldwide, prompting a search for effective natural medicine solutions. Our kidney health services focus on effective natural medicine interventions to manage chronic kidney disease (CKD) by addressing underlying mechanisms and potential therapeutic targets. We offer personalized treatment plans, which may include nutraceuticals, and holistic approaches such as probiotics supplementation, and coenzyme Q10 to promote optimal kidney function.


Our diabetes services focus on addressing the challenges of pre-diabetes, diabetes, and insulin resistance to improve patients’ quality of life. Through personalized treatment plans and lifestyle management strategies, we help individuals effectively not only manage their condition, but only focus on decreasing medications, side effects, and complications while at the same time enjoying a happier, healthier life.


Our high blood pressure services aim to address the root causes of hypertension through effective diet and lifestyle changes, providing a lasting impact on overall health. By incorporating functional medicine principles, we develop personalized treatment plans that focus on genetic predispositions, nutritional deficiencies, environmental triggers, and lifestyle habits to help patients manage their blood pressure effectively.

Gut Health

Our gut health services focus on alleviating chronic digestive issues, such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, IBS, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s disease and food sensitivities, using functional gastroenterology methods. By addressing the root causes, we help patients find relief from their symptoms without resorting to surgery or medication.
