I am Kirti Kalidas M.D., N.D., Board Certified in Internal Medicine and a Licensed Naturopathic Physician, licensed in the state of Oregon. I have been in medical practice for more than 25 years. I earned my medical degree in South Africa and completed my residency with the Georgetown program in Washington D.C.
I practiced as an Internist at my successful, busy internal medicine/family practice office for more than 15 years in the Orlando area. However, I started becoming concerned about contradictory health claims and pharmaceutical side-effects. I was sincerely interested in addressing the root cause, instead of merely masking the symptoms. I felt I was helping my patients only to some extent by alleviating symptoms, but by not addressing the root cause, I was not healing my patients.
I sold my practice and spent an additional two years broadening my medical knowledge at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine. I am now one of few physicians in the country to hold dual doctorate degrees, and am thus uniquely positioned to truly integrate both disciplines to optimize wellness.
Health and disease come from a complex interaction of physical, emotional, dietary, genetic, environmental, lifestyle, and other factors. I prefer safe, effective, non-invasive and supportive therapies to treat a patient as a whole person to restore their natural balance. I am continuously reading new literature, attending seminars and conferences. I received additional training in Intravenous Vitamin-mineral therapy, Chelation therapy, Ozone, Hyperbaric and Oxidative medicine. I am trained in Prolozone therapy for pain and am also a lifestyle educator for preventative care and healthy fat loss. These innovative therapies have profound therapeutic value, especially when combined with traditional Naturopathic treatments. Complete health histories, diet diaries, symptom charts, reviewing past medical records, physical examinations and comprehensive baseline blood tests (or specialty lab tests), are all standard tools in my assessment and evaluation of a patient. I believe that a collaborative approach is the best form of medicine. A patient can benefit from the strengths of each discipline of medicine.
I enjoy music, playing the guitar and tabla and travelling with my wife Anita and family. Recently I have been exploring the world of photography. As a lecturer and an educator, I hold monthly seminars to raise public awareness about the benefits of natural medicine. With this advanced training and increased knowledge, I offer treatment options in Natural Therapeutics and Preventative Medicine. By treating the whole person, these programs optimize immune functions decreasing illness and enhancing the positive outcome for health and well being. My functional approach truly provides, “A bridge to health, hope, and healing.”
I am Amar Kalidas D.O. I graduated in 2010 from medical school at Nova Southeastern University and completed my residency training in Family Practice in 2013 at Florida Hospital in Orlando Florida. As a Board Certified Osteopathic Family Physician, my training has taught me to look at each patient as a whole person. I believe that it is the doctor’s job to find the root cause of illness and remove obstacles, so the body can heal itself.
I furthered my training and am a Certified Practitioner with The Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM). As a member of the International Lyme and Associated Diseases Society (ILADS), American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine (A4M) and the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFM), I am always looking for new treatments, strategies and modalities I can use to help the chronically ill patient.
My interests include but are not limited to holistic approaches to diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, auto-immune diseases, inflammatory bowel disease, men’s health and wellness, chronic infections, Lyme disease, Epstein Barr Virus, mycoplasma pneumonia, hormonal replacement and Hashimoto’s disease.
I spend 60 minutes with all my new patients so that I build a rapport and get better acquainted with their medical history and old records. I use a combination of specialized testing, and extensive traditional lab testing to find the root cause of disease. Then together with the patient, we work on a customized treatment plan which may include diet, exercise, vitamins, hormones, supplements, nutritional IV therapy, Ozone Auto-Hemotherapy, Hyperthermia heat therapy or Prolozone.
I enjoy music, playing the sitar and traveling with my wife.
