"As a healthcare provider myself for over 30 years, I am very particular about whom I will have as my own & my family's healthcare practitioners. When, due to relocation, I needed a new primary care doc, I got lucky. Another professional I trust recommend Dr. Chris & he surpasses what I'd hope for in a primary care doctor: warm, attentive, patient, supportive, thorough, current, creative problem solver, excellent communication & clinical skills/resources, someone I can learn from & more. A gem!"
"As a fellow practitioner I highly recommend for any one seeking health to spend time learning from Dr.Chris. Hours of discussion , open lines of communication, immediate research. Where would you ever find a doctor who is so dedicated? I advise everyone to make him your own personal doctor. "
A MAN THAT CARES!
"The reason why Chris gets 5 star reviews is because he is what doctors should be. He is a doctor that finds the root and treats the problem, not the symptom. He understands what it means to live a truly healthy life style, and he does it by example. Dr. Chris makes himself available 24-7 and he has shown me that his true motivation is helping, not money. Anyone contemplating using him will be surprised because he is not like any other doctor. I would recommend him 100%."
"Dr. Deszynski is the embodiment of what a doctor should be. He is a genuine and compassionate individual whom focuses on the root cause of an issue, rather than superficially treating ailments. I visited Dr. Deszynski for the first time a couple months ago, and was literally able to make an appointment within the same week. Meeting with Dr. Deszynski and following his suggestions have allowed me to finally see signs of improvement, naturally. I truly hope more people reach out to this gentleman!"
GUT ISSUES RESOLVED!
"I came into the office sick and four months later I feel 20 years younger! It took time and effort but I feel really, really good for the first time in years. Dr. Deszynski was kind and compassionate. His knowledge of the intricacies of the digestive system is simply astounding. Every issue I had, he knew the cause. I felt cared for and cared about. This was a completely different experience than I have had with my GP. No pushing of meds to cover symptoms but working toward a cure."
ONE OF THE BEST CHOICES I HAVE EVER MADE
"If I had to write a list of the most life changing and influential people in my life, Dr. Chris Deszynski would be on that list. I have been seeing him regularly for over a year for private exercise and weight lifting sessions, and hydrotherapy. He also has given me advice for various health problems. He is the perfect healer for me as he "walks his talk", he listens well, he is extremely knowledgable, he continually challenges me, and he is just plain fun to be around. "
AMAZED AT QUICK DIAGANOSIS!
"I have had skin issues for decades. I was told years ago I had herpes. For years I refrained from sex when I had a flare up which was often. Turns out I have dermatitis herpetiformus - not herpes at all. I have full blown Celiac Disease. At Dr. Deszynki's reccomendation I quit wheat, gluten and other grains. To my surprize, but not his, my skin is finally clearing! I will never be able to convey this monumental discovery. Thank you! "
OUR MEDICAL PHILOSOPHY
Soil vs Seed
What is disease? Is it random? Is it an unfortunate occurrence of symptoms?
Or, is it a structured and systematic attempt to signal internal dysregulation? Dr. Deszynski helps explain this concept using the analogy: Seed vs. Soil:
A plant has a yellow leaf: There are 3 primary options: 1) Remove the leaf. 2) Utilize chemicals to alter the coloring of the leaf. 3) Diagnose the cause of the yellow leaf (Wet soil, lack of sun, lack of fertilizer, etc).
As a physician, a doctor who understands life as a whole – my primary goal would be to understand the causation of the yellowing of the leaf, prior to removing it or temporarily fixing the color.
Imagine the "yellow leaf of the plant" is “Eczema” in a Human. The conventional approach – or Standard of Care - is that Eczema is not dangerous or contagious disease, but rather a discomforting disease caused by inflammation. The exact cause is "unknown". It is likely "genetic". The primary management options are immune suppressants, corticosteroids, and anti-histamines. The conventional model "Standard of Care" in American medicine is to remove the symptoms of disease.
If botanists took this same philosophical approach " It is an inherited disorder or an issue of the plant's immune system, the cause is unknown" - to human disease, as conventional medicine indicates, botanists would be in the business of developing immune modulating and steroid drugs for any plants which had discoloration of the leaves.
But they are not! - Why? Because botanists, and humans with common sense, first look for the cause of the yellowed leaf.
Because they understand that the yellow leaf is an attempt for the plant to display an INTERNAL issue. Botanists understand that there are many factors involved in the yellowing of a leaf. Most likely, the "root cause" is based on poor conditions of the soil/environment/water.
Did the soil contain adequate nutrition, minerals?
Did the plant receive adequate light?
Were there adequate microorganisms growing in the soil, aiding in the decomposition of matter?
These questions – in essence, are the exact medical approach Dr Deszynski uses in diagnosing and treating disease. Rather than determining that “it is an inherited disorder or condition of inflammation and immune system – and treat by suppressing the inflammatory and immune system” – the physician should ask WHY there is inflammation and immune system suppression.
I do not believe in symptom management. I understand that the most important work I can do as a physician, is to determine the true causation of disease, so that symptoms no longer exist, not because we removed, masked, or suppressed the symptoms, but rather because the body no longer has reason to display these symptoms, and in effect, the body is truly cured of disease.
