    Disease from a Functional Medicine Perspective

    Disease from a Functional Medicine Perspective

    Today we talk about Functional Medicine with Jill Carnahan, MD, ABIHM, ABoIM, IFMCP, Founder and Medical Director of Flatiron Functional Medicine and a world-renowned expert on this medical subspecialty that is based on personalized medicine and focused on the root causes, such as lifestyle instead of symptoms like high cholesterol.

    Utilizing state-of-the-art lab testing and biochemical analysis, Dr. Carnahan helps each patient identify the root cause of their illness by identifying nutritional or metabolic imbalances that may be contributing to their symptoms. She uses nutritional protocols and supplements, lifestyle changes, and medication to increase patient level of function and always seeks the gentlest and least invasive way to restore health and optimize healing.

    Dr. Carnahan was part of the first 100+ healthcare practitioners to be certified in Functional Medicine through the Institute for Functional Medicine (IFMCP). She is committed to educating other health professionals how to address underlying causes of illness through the principles of Functional Medicine.

    After completing her residency at the University of Illinois in Family Medicine at Methodist Medical Center, Dr. Carnahan received her medical degree from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.
