Dr Roca on Your Optimal Health & Wellness
Everything that has ever happened to you, every choice you have ever made brings you to the health you have today. Each choice you make today creates the foundation upon which you can build the health you desire. Together, we can reach that goal of optimal health and wellness.
Health is a challenge to achieve and an ever greater challenge to maintain in our toxic world. The agents of illness are ever present and behaviors learned in childhood routinely move many of us away from our optimal health.
Dr Roca is committed to the optimal health of all individuals and communities. For him, the concept of personal and community health is a national emergency. As a Family Medicine physician, Dr. Roca understands that health behaviors are born within family, community, and social systems. His mission is to provide evidence-based information to help people retain their health and reverse chronic disease. Dr. Roca provides the information on this site as a public service. He is also available for consultation to help individuals achieve their wellness goals.
Dr Roca is among the very few physicians in the nation who practice holistic, integrative, functional medicine. He understands there is no separation between the mind, the emotions, the spirit, and the body. The effects of one on another are instantaneous. He is skilled in interpreting these interconnecting webs of cause and effect to get to the underlying root causes of dysfunction. His extensive training allows him to use multiple modalities including health coaching, acupuncture, herbs, vitamins, supplements, minerals, medications, hypnotherapy, nutrition, energy therapies, shamanic journeying, biofeedback, yoga, and iv nutrition among other modalities.
His goal is to return the foundational functions of the body back to the best place of balance possible in order to resolve symptoms and disease states. In doing this, the patient and his or her story are the prime focal point rather than the disease.
Dr. Roca, you’ve made me very healthy this past year and I’m extremely grateful. I think you’re by far the best healer I’ve ever known – you practice medicine the way I wish every doctor did. I’ve recommended you to several people already and intend to keep directing patients your way.
The complementary therapies help patients to relax and feel better during the treatment process. It’s a very common-sense approach to healing and wellness.
“Doctor Roca has played an absolutely transformative role for our entire family’s health physically and mentally. He has helped cure our boys from various kinds of illnesses and allergies, and for my husband and me he is THE health care provider we entrust with our lives and health. We have recommended him to many of our friends and will keep doing that to whomever wants to make the right decision for their health.”
Dr. Roca and his team gave two workshops about stress; one for the parents, and the other for the faculty. Since that time, I have heard from many faculty members who are using the techniques they learned that day to help the children in their classrooms feel better and perform better.
After many years of searching for a doctor who could get to the cause of my symptoms and not just deal with the symptoms, Dr. Roca was able to identify the basic medical issues and is helping me take a holistic approach to dealing with them. His work has helped me tremendously, and I would recommend him highly to anyone looking for an integrative, holistic, medical, scientific approach to his or her healthcare.
I’ve seen patients with back pain and no mechanical explanation for it. That’s where alternative therapies can be helpful. Often times these patients are referred to pain specialists and treated with strong medications, but there’s now a huge expansion of options for a lot of people for whom we don’t find the answer in the typical medical lore.
I will always be indebted and grateful for the wonderful, thorough and compassionate care you have shown me. You have not only empowered my health significantly, but given me peace of mind. I am a new person because of your care. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!!
Thank you to Greenwich Integrative Medicine for having Dr. Roca come to our church to speak about his Whole Person Approach to Weight Loss. Dr. Roca was engaging, warm, and informative. He had so much useful information to offer that attendees were captivated. We all went home equipped and inspired to make some healthy changes in our lives.
