Dr. Gemelas is deeply committed to breaking the mold of conventional medicine by collaborating with her patients to provide individualized, patient-centered solutions to prevent and treat chronic illness and optimize wellness.

As a functional medicine practitioner, Dr. Gemelas places emphasis addressing root issues through nutritional therapies, hormone balancing, optimizing detoxification and lifestyle improvements.

Functional Medicine is an approach to healthcare that seeks to identify and address the root cause of health concerns, illness and Disease. Our practitioners believe that chronic disease is almost always preceded by a lengthy period of declining health in one or more of the systems of the body. At Aligned Modern Health we begin by conducting a thorough history of current lifestyle and behaviors, combined with specialized Diagnostic tests that we will perform or prescribe. Treatment is individualized and cooperative and we seek to create sustainable lifestyle and behavioral changes that seek to not just treat the symptoms but create a plan that will change the way you live.

Dr. Gemelas specializes in complex chronic health issues such as auto immune diseases (thyroiditis/hypothyroidism, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease), gastro-intestinal issues (inflammatory bowel disease, constipation, diarrhea, “leaky gut") food sensitivities, and general weight loss and improved health.

“I am excited to continue to help bring to light the new discipline of Functional Medicine and Clinical Nutrition at several of Aligned Modern Health’s northside locations,” said Dr. Alaina Gemelas. “We believe that living a healthy, balanced life should be fun and we will continually offer unique ways to keep your mind, body and spirit aligned.”

Dr. Gemelas is currently accepting new patients. She offers a free 15 minute consultation for Functional Medicine and Clinical Nutrition or with the clinic’s Acupuncturists or Chiropractors. In addition, Dr. Gemelas is in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield. They are more than happy to check your coverage prior to starting any treatment.
