Long-term partnership

The Functional Medicine doctor sets a long-term partnership with the patient, verifying his or her medical history and carefully studying how genetic, environmental and lifestyle factors interact and influence the long-term health.

Environmental factors

The air we breathe and the water we drink, our eating habits, the quality of foods, the level of physical activity and the toxic exposures or trauma that we have experienced represent factors that affect our health.

Mind-body connection

Psychological, spiritual and social factors can have a profound influence on our health. The Functional Medicine specialist need to consider all these factors in order to assess a person in addition to the physical symptoms.

Generic structure

Although individual genes can make us prone to certain conditions, DNA is not a constant. There are ongoing researches showing that genes can be influenced by a multitude of factors in our surrounding environment, as well as by our experiences, attitudes and beliefs. This means that it is possible to change the way genes are activated and expressed.

Evaluating and assessing all factors in any type of dysfunction are important in the process of understanding how vital processes of the human body are affected.

The success of the partnership between the patient and the functional medical specialist is based on the constant feedback from the patient

I met Dr. Ana Maria Stoica at a time when I no longer had hopes that my health would improve, but I said let's try it, though. I had various symptoms that, after years of investigations and visits to various doctors and practitioners of alternative medicine, were attributed to a tick bite, in the absence of a clearer diagnosis. From the beginning, the collaboration went smoothly and clearly, I understood that this is a system that approaches health holistically and not just on parts and symptoms, and the process is a long one and, as a patient I needed to have an active role, which suited my way of being. Bogdan, 44 y.o.

Doctor Stoica’s approach is very thorough, involving tests processed both in the country and abroad in laboratories carefully chosen by her, regular discussions and consultations, diet plans, physical exercise and mindfulness, and the necessary supplements for the treatment are of the highest quality.

After about 2 years, most of the symptoms have disappeared, my general condition is good, my energy level is high, and over this time I have learned a lot about my body, about my psyche, about the important role of nutrition and physical exercise. I can say that I have benefited not only from a medical act, but also from many lessons and tools that I can easily integrate and use throughout my life.

Dr. Ana Maria Stoica is not your typical “every-day” “go-to” doctor. Before we talk about her infinite knowledge in the field of anti-aging, functional medicine, and metabolic medicine, I must mention her capacity to explain, support, fascinate, inspire and motivate any possible human being aiming to become healthier, living longer and be happier! Ana Maria is my life savior. As I started to age and became more careful at the things that might influence my body’s functional systems, having her in my life as my nutritional doctor, endocrinology expert and health mentor was a miracle. Mihaela V, 49 ani

I met Ana Maria through a family connection. She was highly recommended and portraited as an amazing professional who can transform my body and change the way I look at the overall life’s nutrition.

The entire experience was a mind-blowing journey through various childhood memories, growing up, things I did and did not, my mistakes, my relationship with food, my blood tests, questions about my family members and my lifestyle in general. After the first, so-called “interview/life-scan”, I felt like I passed an exam for embarking on a space shuttle to Neptune Planet, as an astronaut.

The period following this interview reminded me like going to school. I had to learn now to interpret different sensations, observe and monitor my digestion, taste different foods, read the labels, make notes, look in the mirror and get to know my body. Read my body. Very inspiring.

Various treatments and food programs followed, mainly to test my body’s ability to accept and absorb the nutrients from different food items and groups. Again, the way my body reacted to those supplements and food programs was something that I’ve never experienced before, but it felt good. I was good. I was on the right track.

We are in our 5th year anniversary since we met, and I have learned a lot about me, my body and my entire existence. She is my doctor, health confidante, and friend for life.

A Good, healthy lifestyle and nutrition should be for life and understanding how your body evolves and transforms over the years is very important to create a stable and happy relationship with yourself and your own personal environment.

And this is what Ana Maria helped me to achieve. A greater, healthier and more dynamic relationship with myself and my own body.
