Hi, I am
Ruben Valdes,

Doctor of Functional Medicine, author and director of the Integrated Health Center of Miami. More than 1,000 patients visit my practice to learn to live a healthy life and thus achieve the reversal of their symptoms; control your depression or anxiety, recover your libido, stop hair loss, among others.


I’m committed to helping you reach your best health.  Looking for the root cause, treating the underlying disturbance, and restoring balance are more important than simply treating the symptoms.


I believe that health is more than merely the absence of disease. It is a total state of physical, mental, emotional, spiritual and social well-being.


Becoming proactive in one’s health is essential but difficult, we cannot be passive anymore. We need to take responsibility for our own health, the health of our families, our society, and the world at large.

I know you have a lot of choices in who you read, so I know I have to earn your trust with every post I make. If you’re curious, here’s a little bit about me.

On this site you will discover a set of Beautifully Crafted “Clinical Swords”, designed to empower yourself to carve A WAY OUT of the never ending frustration of Chronic Diseases such as Hypothyroidism. The value of putting all the data together is that it Provides Certainty Every Step Of The Way. Every day we have more and more concrete data teaching us how to drive Chronic Disease out of our society, yet most people do not have access to this knowledge. This website is designed to change that.

Our mission is to change the odds in your favor, making sure that all of the knowledge is cohesively put together into actionable steps ultimately leading to successful outcomes in self care.

Dr. Valdes is a Functional Medicine Samurai dedicated to eliminating all Guesswork in your efforts to heal yourself. With the overwhelming amount of “Self Help” information now available to those afflicted by Hypothyroidism, it has become increasingly difficult to figure out a customized approach that can bring about certainty and superior results for each individual sufferer.
