Dr. Haiden's Approach to Health Care
Doctor Ann Haiden is an internal medicine physician who uses a Integrative Functional Medicine approach to health care. We are located in the greater San Jose and San Francisco Bay Area in Los Gatos.
Integrative Functional Medicine is a holistic approach that looks for the underlying cause or causes of a condition, then focuses on trying to resolve those things. The body has a remarkable ability to heal when given the chance.
Looking at the whole person, the environment of each person, and the individual biochemistry and genomic predisposition of each person is a major principle of functional medicine. It is important to gather a good history of the problem and to use testing to help discover the root of the problem and to follow progress.
We work with you to come up with a mutually agreeable plan which might include dietary change, supplements, lifestyle change, and sometimes medication.
Some of the most common conditions we see are:
• Irritable bowel syndrome
• Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
