Torsak Tippairote, MD, MS, IFMCP

Medical Doctor, IFMCP, Toxicologist, Nutrition Researcher, and French Cuisine Chef

Dr. Torsak

As a medical doctor and researcher with a graduate degree in diet, nutrition, and environmental toxicology, I realize that traditional medicine excels in treating acute conditions, but may fall short in managing chronic illnesses. To truly care for these ongoing complex conditions, it's important to understand the underlying imbalances and their impacts on long-term illness progression. That's why I have been practicing a functional medicine approach since 2003, combining big-data handling and analysis with nutritional and environmental principles to provide personalized and effective lifestyle management for my patients. With this approach, we can navigate the complex and ever-changing landscape of chronic illness and help you on your recovery journey to long-term health.
