Addressing mental health issues
through diet & lifestyle.
I take a functional medicine approach to mental health, which is a root-cause approach to understanding and treating illness.
The brain is a physical organ, vulnerable to inflammation and poor health just like any other organ in the body. Mental health issues are often rooted in physical health in addition to psychology, thought, and behavior patterns.
When working with me, we’ll consider the whole you in order to identify and address the root problem. The goal is not to suppress symptoms through medication, but to understand the cause and to design a solution specifically for you and your lifestyle.
Together we will create a comprehensive, holistic set of tools and strategies you can use today and for the rest of your life.
- Adult ADHD
- Digestive Issues
If you suffer from any of these ailments, I can help. Contact me today and let’s stop the cycle and put the happy back into life.
My goal is for my patients to connect with their intuition, feed and treat themselves from a place of self-love, and regain their vitality.
“Dr. Vora has helped me beyond words. I came to her feeling hopeless, anxious and seeking answers. She is both knowledgeable and kind and taught me the power of clean eating and self-love. With her help, I’ve been able to turn my health around, nourish my body and respect my mind. My anxiety has become a distant memory and I’m excited to continue living my life without constraints through this new lens of self-care.”
“Dr. Vora is truly an incredible doctor! She understands the value and importance of treating her patients from a holistic approach, and it has absolutely changed my life! Her intellect, compassion, and patience are just a few of many traits she practices with each and every one of her patients. She is the best of the best, and I can’t imagine having any other doctor besides Dr. Vora!!”
“Her mind-body-spirit approach along with patience and persistence proved miraculous again and I gradually became symptom free. Without medication. My skin has cleared up, my lifelong horrible PMS has dissipated, I now wake up refreshed, enjoy better interpersonal relationships, and found new passions and directions. Most importantly, I’m a happier, healthier, more balanced mother to my daughter. For all this, I feel truly blessed to have had the privilege of being Dr. Vora’s patient and will forever be grateful to her.”
