Nafysa Parpia ND
Nafysa Parpia, N.D
Naturopathic Doctor/Independent Practitioner
Dr. Parpia uses a functional and integrative medicine approach in treating her patients with complex chronic illness. Biochemical imbalances, epigenetic expression, toxin exposure, microbial exposure and emotional imbalance are often key in unraveling the mystery of and treating chronic illness. External factors to the body such as environmental toxicity, pathogens, diet, and lifestyle can alter the expression of internal factors like susceptibility to infections, over or under expression of immunity, genetic expression, cellular biochemical function, mood and nutritional status. Each of these aspects is different for each patient. Thus, with compassionate listening and cutting-edge laboratory tests, Dr. Parpia creates treatment plans that are highly individualistic and healing. She strives to help her patients find balance between the external factors of their lives, their body’s internal mechanisms and their mind.
