What is Nephesh?
“Nephesh Health is a functional and Integrative health care model that supports the individual needs of our patients on their unique health journey. Wendy Finkelstein believes that treating the whole person involves more than just treating the symptoms. Wendy looks deeper into the nutritional and biochemical pathways while simultaneously addressing the imbalances one may be experiencing on a subconscious level. Wendy’s diverse background in theology, internal medicine, sports medicine, and dermatology, has strengthened her clinical acuity and intuition. Wendy can personalize her treatment approaches by utilizing precision-based testing as well as deep listening and no rush appointments. She works with compounding pharmacies that understand the involvement and importance of the formulations. Her practice focuses on balancing the whole person by synthesizing all of its parts. This includes, gut/microbiome health, hormones, immune system and thyroid disease, skin issues and joint health. Nephesh is meant to infuse the body with its life force and keep it moving in the world in ways that continue to astonish you.”

I believe there is a sacred “space” at the edge of our skin where our spirit begins. The origin of this space expands out from our heart and functions as an important gateway into and out of the body. Our conscious and unconscious thoughts, habits, stressors, and struggles can sometimes threaten this “space” and weaken its interface, not only with ourselves but how we deal with the outside world. Once this “space” is infiltrated too deeply or if it's left unrealized, it becomes susceptible to permeable toxins, illnesses, and chronic diseases, all of which compromise how we are presented in the world. I am in service of this “space” and in support of the process of its healing and repair. I support the first steps to wellness and believe in as many chances and opportunities a lifetime can give.
