Holistic specialists a complementary and integrative medicine center unites cutting edge western medicine such as innovative functional medicine and clinical nutrition with Chinese medicines such as acupuncture, herbal therapy and natural alternative medicines to enhance health for the whole body. For many people that are just starting to improve their future with preventive medicine, How can I lose weight? How can I be healthy, and What are natural remedies? are the most common questions, and our holistic specialists have created this website to give you the answers.

Holistic specialists are experienced functional medicine practitioners, acupuncturists and nutritionists that work side by side with medical doctors to develop integrated treatment plans. As a team we provide the safest most effective, least toxic and noninvasive ways to manage our patient's health.

We are dedicated to researching and utilizing complementary healing practices in the context of rigorous science and experience. The advantage of Holistic Specialists teaming up with medical doctors is that through environmental and functional medicine, we are able to address the malfunction and focus on preventive care rather than disease care. This combination of eastern medicine and western medicine cannot be overstated. Our professional staff can diagnose and treat complex and mixed symptoms throughout the body. An example is: The kidney, the prostate, and the bladder while being separate organs, produce virtually identical urinary symptoms such as microscopic hematuria, gross hematuria (sangre orina), and urinary retention which need to be diagnosed with a comprehensive functional medicine approach, which is available at our Miami Holistic center.

Prior to full blown disease affecting an organ or system of our body, early intervention of the dynamic systems in our body can help prevent disease from occurring. Just as genetic, epigenetic, lifestyle, and environmental factors can produce cancer, heart disease, and diabetes, functional medicine, clinical nutrition, Chinese medicine, acupuncture, natural alternative medicine, moxibustion therapy, homeopathy and medical massage can bring our systems back into its optimized state to circumvent disease before it advances into a life altering problem.

Customer Testimonials

These people are amazing. All my kids have gone to see them and in all cases, they have helped.

My youngest is the most amazing story - none of the regular doctors could find out what was wrong and they were about to go down the "endoscopy/colonoscopy" route (my daughter was 17 at the time with no previous history of stomach issues).

It took Diego no time at all to figure out what the issue was - one test to confirm it - and in depth advice on how to manage and slowly but surely improve the issue. My daughter was scared about going to camp and also to university because of her issue but now, she knows what she has to do and has survived the first week of camp without issue. Diego has always been available for support and advice and that says as much as his amazing diagnostic and healing skills.

THANK YOU Holistic Specialists!!!

PS. They also look after adults - the lady that introduced us to Holistic Specialists literally had her life saved by these amazing functional medicine practitioners.


The service you get here is personalized. I don't feel rushed in and out of the door and feel as if I am the only patient here. Combine that with the personality of Dr. Diego and you have an office visit that is one I look forward to going to.


Diego is incredibly knowledgeable as well as caring! I sincerely recommend Holistic Specialists to all of my clients and friends.


So grateful to God for Holistic Specialist. Both Shantih and Diego are incredibly knowledgable as well as caring! It has been such a blessing finding them ( a rare find indeed). They truly care about you. I recently attended a fermentation class and it was totally beneficial. There is so much info on the internet, but it was reassuring to hear from someone who not only knows what he's talking about, but who you can ask questions face to face. What I really love about this team is that they really know how to listen! They do not have a hidden agenda, but they do have an agenda, and that is to help heal and educate you. Love you guys.
