Tina, a native New Yorker, practices Integrative Holistic Medicine in NY. A Graduate of the UAG Medical School in Guadalajara, Mexico, she completed a residency in Emergency Medicine at Metropolitan Hospital Center in NYC and became board-certified (ABEM) in 1996. She practiced full-time Emergency Medicine until 2006. She began to explore the world of alternative therapies while dealing with some personal health struggles of her own. It wasn’t until her daughter was born with a serious congenital cardiac condition that Dr. Discepola was able to truly experience the healing power of acupuncture, cranial-sacral manipulation, and herbal therapies. As her personal journey in holism evolved, so did her medical practice. She became a Certified Acupuncturist in 1999, and quickly integrated Acupuncture as well as Guided Imagery and Visualization/ Relaxation techniques in her patient encounters. 10 years ago, Dr. Discepola became very interested in the role that inflammation played in the various chronic ailments that plagued most of her patients. She quickly learned the key role that an inflammatory diet, inactive lifestyle, negative thoughts, and hormonal decline played in all of the major illnesses that she sought to heal.Dr. Discepola now fully dedicates her practice to the art of creating health and longevity through whole food dieting, nutritional therapy, and Bio-identical Hormone Replacement therapy.
