About this Provider
Prachi Garodia, MD, is an internal medicine pioneer at Asante. She has training and certification in integrative medicine, with a focus on people who have chronic diseases.
“We are faced with stress and anxiety every day, making it difficult to stay grounded in one’s self. I focus on taking health to the next level — not just maintenance — to help patients get to the root of their problems. Together, we look at treatments that address the causes.”
The integrative medicine approach allows Dr. Garodia to address how stress, lifestyle, personal history and mindfulness influence health. She may use Ayurvedic medicine (balancing mind, body and spirit), yoga or meditation within a treatment plan. Healthy eating, sleep management, acupuncture recommendation, gentle detoxification, targeted nutritional therapy and other holistic healing methods might also be considered.
Though her private practice is no longer accepting new patients, Dr. Garodia offers one-on-one consultations and shared medical visits for patients of any Asante provider. Topics include: digestion and immunity; arthritis and pain; weight loss for diabetes; healthy heart and healthy weight; nutrition for cancer; and anti-inflammatory diets.
Dr. Garodia enjoys balancing her work life at Asante with gardening to grow both food and flowers. She enjoys a focus on healthful plant-based nutrition and cooking, outdoor recreation and painting. She continues her artistic pursuits by maintaining her training and practice of classical Indian dance. She is fluent in Hindi and speaks two additional Indian languages – Gujarati and Urdu.
