Integrative medicine is a healing-oriented practice, designed to encompass how one lives and embraces life. Being preventative and proactive allows you to optimally age, while at the same time, derailing and halting chronic disease processes. Integrative medicine emphasizes the therapeutic relationship between the practitioner and the patient, taking into account the whole person, mind-body-spirit, as well as all aspects of lifestyle, from diet to exercise to sleep. When used appropriately, a combination of conventional and integrative methods can successfully facilitate the body’s innate healing mechanisms.

Founded in 2013
Synergistiq Integrative Health was founded in 2013 by Dr. Verma. After years of feeling unfulfilled treating patients traditionally, Dr. Verma decided to change course, following her passion to educate and heal each individual as a whole, not as a fragmented and dissected collection of systems.
Today, Dr. Verma is deeply committed to the importance of integrative medicine and practices exactly what she preaches, living her life the same way that she expects her patients to. Synergistiq Integrative Health represents peace, renewal, and rebirth, as the practice was born during a challenging time in Dr. Verma’s personal life. From the beginning, her goal has been to create a practice that could give patients an opportunity for a healthier and happier version of their existence.
As a well-known TV personality and blogger, Dr. Verma strives to enrich the lives of everyone she meets. She understands the frustration and angst of patients who are sick and tired of feeling tired and sick. Dr. Verma’s training has taught her that in order to find a long-term cure, patients need treatment that addresses the root cause of their symptoms, not just addressing their lab numbers. Dr. Verma’s relentless pursuit of total well-being embodies the essence of Synergistiq Integrative Health.
Ayurvedic Medicine with Dr. Verma
Integrative medicine draws from the principles of Ayurveda, which is arguably the world’s most ancient and intricate medicinal system. Ayurveda states that the mind and body are inextricably connected. There is nothing more powerful than using the mind to heal the body. To be free from illness depends on an individual’s ability to bring their mental awareness into balance.
Ayurvedic medicine comes naturally to Dr. Verma, as she is of Eastern-Indian origin, with these theories flowing through her veins. Born and raised in America Dr. Verma has the advantage of harmonizing Western and Eastern medicine. As a 1st generation Indian in America, she grew up always finding a way to bridge these two cultures.
Dr. Verma firmly believes that everyone should be given a chance to create a happier and healthier version of their existence. The preservation of health is easier than the cure of disease.
