At NaturalStart Medicine, you will experience the doctor's office like you have never experienced it before. Dr. Carrie will combine her background in internal medicine with her knowledge of functional medicine to support you in your journey to health. Conventional prescription medications will be used when necessary, while the underlying condition is being addressed using lifestyle and functional medicine techniques.
For Chronic and Recurring Health Issues
Initial 4 month program
This program is designed for adults with chronic or recurring health conditions. Dr. Carrie works with patients who are already on medications or those who would like to address a chronic issue and may require medication, but would like to treat the underlying condition simultaneously with functional medicine.
The initial program with Dr. Carrie starts with one month of detective work to uncover the root cause and three months of initial treatment. Visits after the initial four month program will continue every 3-12 months until your health has been restored. Dr. Carrie will work with you to tailor a program that fits your health goals.
In this program, Dr. Carrie will take the time to get to know you and understand your condition. After a thorough investigation of your case, Dr. Carrie may prescribe medications and suggest an individualized treatment plan to remove the "obstacles to cure" and restore health.
Dr. Carrie can act as your primary care doctor (although she is not on call after hours) and she can work in collaboration with Dr. Fong or your other medical doctors, if necessary.
Visits every 3-12 months
This program is designed for patients who have completed the initial 4 month treatment with Dr. Carrie or those who would like preventive care. Visits are typically every 3-12 months, depending on your level of health, or as needed for acute conditions (illness, injuries, etc.).
In this program, Dr. Carrie will track your health and get follow-up labs every 3-12 months. She will provide you with the tools you need to live a healthy life and help you understand how to optimize your system to guard against acute and chronic disease.
The goal of this program is not to get you healthy, but to KEEP you HEALTHY!
