Unfortunately, Dr. Nagula developed health issues at a young age and had to exit medicine. He battled and fought cancer for many years and fortunately he is in complete remission. It was during the time of his diagnosis where he developed an interest in Integrative and Functional Medicine. Traditional medicine typically doesn’t focus on treating the patient as a whole, it treats patients by their symptoms. Dr. Nagula’s plight was secondary to poor lifestyle choices; extreme stress, poor sleep, infrequent exercise, and a standard American diet. There were no genetic links to his cancer. Recently, Dr. Nagula completed training, under the renowned Dr. Weil, in Integrative Medicine through University of Arizona. He owes his successful battle and remission to the tenets of integrative and functional medicine. He is in the best shape and best health of his life and owes it all to his positive lifestyle changes.
Dr. Nagula recently relocated to Arlington, VA to be closer to his family and friends and wants to share his passion for a healthy lifestyle to anyone who wants to listen. He believes most diseases that plague this country’s citizens can be be prevented and sometimes treated by positive health and lifestyle changes. Integrative and Functional Medicine align with his core beliefs and he looks forward to sharing his knowledge to help his patients.
Lastly, Dr. Nagula has an interest in personal growth and development. His recent interest and new found knowledge has propelled him to take a role in helping others who wish to achieve the same.
