About Dr. Karen Carrick
Dr. Carrick founded Natural Healthcare & Diagnostics in 1996, in Raleigh. With more than 3,000 hours in post-doctoral training in Functional Medicine, she was one of the earliest proponents of this patient-centered approach to medical care in the Triangle area. With respect for a patient's time, energy and resources, Dr. Carrick advocates lifestyle changes first--changes within a patient's control.
To diagnose persistent or difficult-to-trace conditions, she evaluates deeper levels of a person's overall health: mitochondrial energy function; the body's bacterial antioxidant strength; and other crucial aspects of wellness (see Unique Care). Her expertise also includes training in interpreting the complex nutritional picture presented by DNA genetic-variant testing.
For more than 20 years, Dr. Carrick has been practicing preventive natural health and has a long list of lives changed as a result. In addition to a degree in chiropractic medicine in 1979, Dr. Carrick has received extensive post-doctoral training in Functional Medicine diagnosis and treatment through the Institute for Functional Medicine and the groundbreaking research of Dr. Datis Kharrazian.
