Kenneth A. Litwin, MD FACP IFMCP, is a highly respected, board-certified Primary Care/General Internal Medicine physician. In recent years, Dr. Litwin has taken a more holistic and integrative approach to patient care. This exciting and reinvigorating stage in his career began after a colleague fortuitously introduced him to Functional Medicine. Using the techniques learned through his training with the Institute of Functional Medicine, Dr. Litwin has been able to provide even more effective care for his patients. He now can focus his attention on the prevention of disease through nutrition and lifestyle improvements. He has discovered that he is able to treat his patients much more successfully through searching out and treating the true causes of their conditions rather than by simply prescribing medications to relieve their symptoms. He is therefore better able to help those patients for whom conventional medical approaches have helped only marginally or even failed completely.
