Carchedi offers, “I believe that medical cannabis will change people’s lives by improving their quality of life and providing hope to those that have been struggling with chronic disease.”
Lower Gwynedd Functional Medicine Institute is a solution-oriented, multi-specialty holistic practice that offers patient-centered care through individualized integrative treatment plans, holistic supplement utilization, homeopathic medicine, advanced laboratory and diagnostic testing, intravenous therapy, acupuncture, integrative pediatric consultations, homeopathic immunizations and nutritional/lifestyle counseling.
The practice confronts and deals with myriad issues, including immunity, disease prevention, energy problems such as fatigue, hormonal imbalance, women’s health, cancer, inflammatory diseases, weight management, sports medicine and nutrition.
Carchedi has more than 25 years of clinical experience as an emergency room physician and now specializes in integrative health and functional medicine. He is board certified, holding medical degrees in both the United States and Europe.
“Patients today are well-informed, and I encourage them to ask me questions so that together we may find therapies that will optimize their health and well-being,” Carchedi invites, adding that he educates and trains to stay abreast of the latest medical techniques and advances, such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and high-dose intravenous therapy.
