Holistic Healing Center – Home

The team at the Holistic Healing Center considers the whole person and seeks to uncover root causes of health issues in order to optimize health and well-being.

Deborah R. Bernstein, MD, MS, IFMCP of The Holistic Healing Center, creates a partnership with her patients using her unique blend of specialties in Functional Medicine, Integrative Holistic Medicine and Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation.


Functional Medicine is a patient-centered healthcare approach that focuses attention on biochemical individuality, metabolic balance, environmental factors and an individual’s unique personal experiences. It creates a framework for looking at root causes. This often requires in-depth history taking and both conventional and Functional laboratory testing.


Integrative / Holistic Medicine is the art and science of healing that addresses the whole person: mind, body and spirit.  The practice of Holistic Medicine integrates the best of conventional treatments and therapies, such as nutritional, herbal, mind-body, acupuncture, chiropractic, physical therapy, etc., to promote optimal health and well-being.



Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, also known as Physiatry, is a medical specialty that considers the whole person and looks at non-surgical methods for reducing pain, restoring function and enhancing quality of life. A team approach to chronic conditions is emphasized to coordinate care of patients.
