Francis Holistic Medical Center is a holistic private practice utilizing an integrative functional medicine approach based upon the Environmental Medicine model. Dr. LaCava established Francis Holistic Medical Center in the Worcester area in 1993 in order to provide safe effective treatments for allergies and complex chronic illnesses to adults and children in Central Massachusetts and the greater Boston MetroWest area.
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in
the care of the human frame, in diet and in the cause and prevention of disease."
Dr. LaCava has committed his practice to helping patients struggling with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, multiple chemical sensitivities, Lyme Disease, multiple allergies and other chronic complex illnesses. He is known and recognized for uncovering the causes of diseases and unwellness and helping to restore healthy function where usual medical care has failed to do so.
Most of the patients we encounter have had their symptoms for months or even years. They have tried and failed with conventional approaches to their problems and have often seen many other practitioners without success. Our holistic approach uses an integrative functional medicine model to uncover the underlying root cause of disease which might be related to chronic infections, environmental toxicity, genetic susceptibilities and hormonal or nutritional imbalances. Our personalized treatment plans utilize more effective and less invasive treatment methods with the goal of restoring the body’s natural healing abilities.
