Welcome to The Other Side of Medicine


A visit with Dr. Krystosik starts off by developing a healthy doctor patient relationship—a therapeutic partnership between the doctor and the patient. By listening to each patient’s story, drawn from a time-line of their health history, Dr. Krystosik then creates a personalized treatment plan addressing each patient’s unique needs. Patients are encouraged to take an active role in their health care by asking questions, learning how the body functions to heal itself and embracing lifestyle changes. The doctor’s role is to educate, investigate, guide, direct, encourage and protect the patient’s well-being.


The foundation of Dr. Krystosik’s healthcare is based on three important core principles; common sense, science and cooperation with nature. Dr. Krystosik looks upstream to identify the cause of ill- ness, instead of merely treating symptoms. Rather than guess, Dr. Krystosik tests the weakest body systems with functional medicine tests. Next, he identifies imbalances in the body systems, and a strategy to restore their integrity. After he interprets the test results, Dr. Krystosik provides the patient with a GPS system—and the best treatment options to help guide them through the maze of illness and back to optimal health.


Dr. Krystosik relies on what the ancient Greeks referred to as “Vis Medicatrex Naturae,” (the healing power of nature). He cooperates with nature to restore his patients back to health with nutrition, a personalized diet, herbs, vitamins, minerals, detox programs, exercise and stress-management tools. Dr. Krystosik’s ultimate goal is to help his patient become independently healthy and able to enjoy a healthy, drug free, long life—relying on their “doctor within.” Dr. Krystosik’s patient cen-tered approach allows each person to be in control of their health and wellness.
