Thank you for visiting AIMA of Nashua, home of AIMA Functional Medicine. At AIMA, cutting edge modern integrative care is delivered with the triple advantage of personalized functional medicine, conventional medicine, and ancient traditional medicine.
Our provider holds the distinction of being the first and only Certified Functional Medicine Provider in Greater Nashua, having passed final examinations after a rigorous program, and is a dually board certified and licensed clinician with 30+ years of practice.
We specialize in gastrointestinal (GI) microbiome health because of its profound influence on the immune system, energy production, metabolism, and multiple organ systems.
As a “gut health specialist”, the practice focus is at the level of the GI microbiome — utilizing both preventive and restorative measures to address chronic health conditions and lifestyle diseases, to prevent future health conditions, for healthy aging, and for prevention and treatment of immunological, gastrointestinal, metabolic, and multisystem disorders.
At AIMA Functional Medicine, we deliver personalized medicine with clinical excellence and compassionate care. We offer safe and evidence-based non-pharmacological treatment, and we strive to discover and address the “why” or underlying cause of symptoms and disease.
We work with you to design individualized goal oriented therapy targeted to address the root disorder, restore and improve your function, and maximize your independence in self care —
in addition to relieving symptoms.
Our care is characterized by trust and collaboration between provider and patient; a mutual investment in reaching your goals. We value integrity, clinical excellence and compassionate care.
Come visit us at our office on Main Street overlooking the south bank of the Nashua River in Nashua NH, or visit with us remotely. Our HIPAA compliant secure telemedicine platform enables you to receive functional medicine services at your convenience.
We look forward to seeing you!

Face Mask Policy
Face masks will always be provided, and are encouraged for those that remain at the greatest risk of severe illness from respiratory infection including senior adults, people with weakened immune systems, people with chronic health conditions (such as heart disease, lung disease, diabetes, and obesity), and medically fragile individuals. Effective 4/01/2023, face masks are optional for visitors, non-infectious patients, and vaccinated staff and students, with some exceptions. Face masks will still be required in our facility:

If you are sneezing, coughing, or have a fever, please stay home.
Seek medical assistance as needed, and always call 9-1-1 for life-threatening emergencies.
AIMA Functional Medicine is a healthcare facility that promotes prevention and wellness, and we strive to keep our patients well and to help them prevent illness whenever possible. We see individuals who are more at risk to become severely ill with common respiratory infections and transmissible diseases, and it is for this reason that we may ask you to wear a face mask inside our facility.
Online Check-In is required within 48 hours and no later than 24 hours prior to scheduled appointments. We ask that you use hand sanitizer upon arrival and let us know if anything has changed since your Check-In.
We remain committed to your health and safety.
The level of community transmission of COVID-19 in Nashua is variable. CDC Standard Precautions and NH Universal Best Practices utilized to mitigate risk of COVID-19 and other transmissible diseases are routine everyday practice at AIMA.
AIMA Functional Medicine is following CDC, State of New Hampshire, and City of Nashua Public Health Department guidelines for public safety. Our policy is subject to change at any time and in accordance with these recommendations.
We follow stringent protocols for safety and disinfection, and we continue to space appointments to reduce waiting room traffic. We are happy to always do our best to keep you safe and healthy. Thank you for continuing to partner with us at AIMA Functional Medicine for your functional medicine and integrative care. We look forward to seeing you soon!

What infection control procedures do you follow?

Will I have to do the Check-In before every visit? Yes.
