We Are a Functional Medicine Practice: Diagnosing and Naturally Treating Women with Low-Thyroid, Hormonal, Allergy and Gut Issues
If chronic problems are robbing you of productive days and restful sleep, you can feel better. Have too-general lab tests failed to explain your symptoms? In hypothyroidism, for instance, there are at least 23 potential places in the body where thyroid function may be disrupted. A Functional Medicine approach involves natural treatment and is more thorough.
I had been very ill for many years and had been to every kind of doctor. Dr. Carrick helped me gain a higher level of function where no one else could. . . . She is a brilliant, caring, and gifted healthcare professional who has made a big difference in my life.* –DP, Raleigh

Be Well and Stay Well
Dr. Carrick’s goal is to help patients be genuinely well and stay well— patients who didn’t get better with traditional medical care. Unique Care in the Menu describes in-office diagnostics and in-depth lab tests available, if needed. Also, if someone ordered any direct-to-consumer test before becoming a patient, Dr. Carrick can interpret those tests—together with any blood tests and a patient’s health story—and advise about next steps.

Dr. Carrick practices personalized medicine because everyone has a unique physiology, diet and life experience.
