Health Clinic

Having been raised in Europe, I took up a smoking habit in my late teens. Although I ate a very healthy diet, I was always getting sick. My smoking habit resulted in waking up one day with severe chest pain. I was determined to quit smoking and restore my body to optimal health. In order to not gain weight, I took on training for a marathon. I remember running on the first day and not making it to the end of the street. The damage I had done to my body was evident and I was determined to reverse it. Our body is a complex system that is influenced by many factors such as diet, environment, genetics and lifestyle.  I completed my first marathon six months later. That is when I became acutely aware that given the proper tools, our bodies have an amazing ability to heal themselves.

I had over 15 years of clinical experience as a nurse before I became a Nurse Practitioner. I will always cherish my years of working with HIV/AIDS and cancer patients. They taught me so much about the strength and perseverance of the human body and spirit. Years of watching patients cycle through a system that is profit driven and forces physicians to practice mass-produced, assembly line medicine made me realize that I could not in good conscience practice in such a setting. Don’t get me wrong, conventional medicine is unsurpassed in diagnostics and treating acute situations. The conventional medical model falls short in the treatment of chronic disease such as heart disease, diabetes, auto-immune disease to name a few.  Functional medicine looks to  understand all that influences our health, getting at the root of illness and how lifestyle and environment interact with genetics to create the imbalances or balances that are the  causes of disease.

I have extensive training through the Institute of Functional Medicine (IFM) and the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS)  . Having worked in health care for many years has taught me that the current system neither promotes health or provides good care any longer. Most physicians don’t have the luxury of spending time getting to know the patient.  Good food is good medicine and bad food is bad medicine. I have seen it work first hand not only for my patients but also for myself. Over a third of American adults are obese and obesity has more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescent in the past 30 years. Diet related illness is costing over 250 billion dollars per year and we are sicker as a country than ever.

My approach to health and wellness includes identifying elements of your life that influence the course of illness and health. Genetics play a significant role in our overall health.  I believe that our genes load the gun and the environment and our lifestyle pull the trigger. I focus on wellness, prevention and creating a self-care plan that supports healing with the use of dietary, nutritional and occasionally pharmaceutically appropriate interventions. We are much more than merely our symptoms. Our bodies are designed to heal themselves, given the proper tools.

Listen up folks !!!!! I had some bad experiences through misdiagnosis and courses of treatment until I was finally recommended to Jen and her staff at synRG Integrative. The compassion, knowledge and understanding from the moment I walked through that door is something I will never forget. Lyme is a terrible, painful and debilitating disease. Jennifer and her staff (Katie and Julie are incredible passionate people) are with you every step of the way during your course of treatment. I normally don't complete reviews, but I had to in this case to recommend synRG Integrative to people who are struggling with Lyme or any other tick borne disease.

Let me start out by saying that I have not felt well for almost a year and have had no luck getting any answers. Nothing is more frustrating. Enter Jennifer Goldstock. Jennifer is incredibly knowledgeable, thorough and compassionate. I felt like she listened to me and validated how I was feeling. She explained every aspect of my test results and what they meant in relation to how I felt. I now have a plan for healing. Most importantly, I feel like I have a partner on this journey who listens and educates. Such a gift!!!

Jennifer has helped me through quite an uphill battle with various tick born illnesses. If you aren't getting any answers from other providers or just feel like a diagnosis is not the whole story, come here. I had IBS my whole life, and Jennifer helped me realize I had food intolerances that no other doctors (even allergists!) even tried to find out. I had been told my symptoms were in my head for years. I went to a therapy. My therapist told me to get more tests since I didn't have any obvious mental issues (after a year of seeing her). Sound familiar to you??? Get in here and get help.

Jennifer and her staff are amazing. Felt comfortable the moment I walked into the office. Sat down with Jennifer and discussed my symptoms at great length. She suggested some blood work should be done . With the results from the blood test, Jennifer then prescribed treatment which over a short period of time made my symptoms disappear . I took her advice and made some life style changes as well and have never felt better. Thanks again to Jennifer and her whole staff for a great experience. Highly recommend SynEG.

Jennifer Goldstock is amazing. She absolutely listens to your symptoms or lack of symptoms, and works with you to get to the bottom of things. I've been told by my GP that I'm hypothyroid (or borderline), many times, although I have absolutely no symptoms. He wanted to put me on medication but it just didn't feel right to me. I went to Jennifer, she ran blood tests, recommended a vitamin, I adjusted my diet and my thyroid is testing normal. She is smart, she is passionate, and she CARES about her patients!!!

Jennifer Goldstock is amazing. She not only helped me balance my hormones and get my life back after years of struggling with symptoms related to thyroid dysfunction which were missed by my conventional doctor but she also saved my husbands life. My husband was having severe shortness of breath for a month and was being told he was just “getting older”. Jen insisted he get a full work up which resulted in a diagnosis of a pulmonary embolism. The doc told us he could have died had he not been treated right away. We recommend her highly and are so grateful for her care.

synRG Integrative Health & Wellness is an amazing medical practice that feels more like a self care oasis. I have worked with Jennifer Goldstock for several years now on several dietary issues that I have struggled with for years, and I have never felt better since being in her care. My daughter sees Natasha Ruiz in this practice and she’s incredible as well. Jen & Natasha have such a tremendous amount of experience & knowledge and we feel blessed to be in their care. Julie is always wonderful about getting us scheduled, managing any supplement needs, and always so pleasant! Katie RN is amazing! An IV genius!!! We are so fortunate to have access to such quality care in this area! We feel blessed!
