The Practice

We pride ourselves on the depth, breadth and expertise of services that we offer. With expertise in Western Medical and Naturopathy, we leverage cutting edge medical technology and artfully merge it with age-old principles. The following short list gives a sense of the type of care we excel in:

Functional & Integrative Medicine

At Vitality Health & Wellness,  we prefer the elegant and efficient method of clearing issues at their source. Since most illness results from a failure of the bodies normal physiologic function (whether it be immune, glandular, digestive, inflammatory, or detoxification), the downstream effects either contribute to or cause the symptoms experienced. By intervening at the problem’s origins, a “cure” becomes possible and symptoms can often be resolved permanently.

Functional Medicine involves focused testing to search for metabolic, endocrine and/or digestive abnormalities. These types of abnormalities can result in a variety of behavioral changes and worsening psychiatric symptoms; in addition to a host of physical ailments (e.g. insomnia, headache, chronic fatigue, and irritable bowel, to mention only a few). Dr. Levinson is an expert and thought leader in this field for almost thirty years; beginning in his sophomore year in medical school where he chaired and created  an alternative medicine conference for University of Miami School of Medicine in 1992 to training physicians to practice Functional Medicine since 2002.

Western Medicine

We believe in the value of scientific pursuit and the foundation created by the rigors of a modern medical education and appreciate, sometimes with awe, the power of allopathic (mainstream) interventions. Western Medicine has a place and when used appropriately can be critically important in the treatment of certain illnesses and to help stabilize body systems that are “going haywire”.   Dr. Levinson presents many options as part of the individualized treatment plan that he collaboratively creates with each patient. This is done openly and directly to make certain that not only are you making the correct choice but that you are making an informed decision as well.

This balance of respect and critical thinking is what separates Vitality Health & Wellness from other care centers. Our approaches are theoretically sound and openly discussed; thus allowing us to create a plan that may be “out of the box” but lands right on target.

Childhood and Adolescent Medicine

At Vitality Health & Wellness, we have an open door to discuss all options for your child’s health from the use of antibiotics and natural remedies to up-to-date information about vaccines. Though western medically trained, we are passionate about diet, natural medicine and homeopathy as safer, less toxic options for dealing with your child’s ailments. We offer consultative care addressing medical ailments, and emotional and learning difficulties. Though we are happy to be your sole provider,we are willing to support you in being able to make informed decisions about the feedback and direction given by your primary care physician or working with them as part of your health team.

Mind Body Medicine

If there was one clear point of difference between Vitality Health & Wellness and  other clinics, it might be Dr. Levinson’s expertise in Mind-Body Medicine and how his background allows him to be uniquely knowledgeable and effective to determine where your challenge originates and how to best treat it.

We believe that for the majority of psychiatric illness and debilitating symptoms are rooted in underlying biological abnormalities (a genetic predisposition and environmental influences) and by determining where problems exist outside the nervous system one can resolve problems within. Our goal is to help patients get off psychotropic medications or maintain the lowest possible dose supported by naturopathic intervention while keeping the suffering of medication withdrawl  at a minimum.

Dr. Levinson also offers psychotherapy to some of his clients that is tailored to be focused and usually of a short duration. His style is unique but is an amalgamation of Gestalt, Reichian and other eclectic therapeutic schools and designed to make dramatic change possible in the shortest amount of time. 

Additionally, he has created several uniquely effective therapies.  An example of this is Hypno- Ketamine Treatment. Having used Ketamine for treatment resistant depression for many years, Dr. Levinson has combined it with his yogic and hypnosis training to create a powerful tool for addressing PTSD and addictive behaviors.

Anti-aging

Aside from the imaginary realm of cyrogenics, there is no way to stop aging completely; however, we make the process more graceful and less noticeable. First seen in the Discovery Health Channel’s series “Ten Years Younger,” Dr. Levinson’s dramatically successful approach has been refined significantly over the last decade. Through a combination of lifestyle, diet, anti-oxidant and vitamin therapy; along with medical treatments that reverse inflammation and make sense; you will become noticeably healthier, more fit and embody the vitality, health & wellness that is your birthright.

Athletic Performance

Whether you are a weekend warrior, a professional athlete or a passionate player, we are uniquely qualified to help you excel, reach your goals and eradicate your restrictions. Regardless of what your challenges may be our systematic approach will help you reach your potential.

We have successfully worked with players from the NFL, the MLB, professional dancers, renown yogis and champion golfers and adventure racers. We are uniquely capable of finding and resolving most any problem with utmost confidentiality.

Telemedicine

Although we would prefer to see all our patients in the clinic, we realize that it isn’t always possible. The unique nature of our practice draws patients from across the globe and we have developed the systems and processes necessary to provide effective care without local contact. Contact with our practitioners is primarily through phone consultations. Our patients complete lab testing either in their homes or go to local laboratory for evaluations. In states where we are licensed (NY, CA, FL) we can arrange for many treatments to be done in the comfort of your home.

Don’t let your location stand in the way of working with Vitality. Contact us to schedule a phone consultation, even if you live out of the area.
