In the summer of 2014, Dr.’s Cuny and Nuño merged their individual practices and founded Seek Optimal Health, P.C. in order to offer comprehensive wellness care to the community in which they live.
While there are a plethora of available holistic approaches to the modern integrative practitioner, follows one simple edict in the application of these therapies – “Does this support the health within?” We all have amazingly powerful healing forces within our bodies. Sometimes, due to stress, toxicity, trauma, etc. we have difficulty expressing our health. This is where a competent, integrative physician can help bring you to optimal health. This is his goal in working with patients – to optimize their health.
