Are We A Good Fit?

At Carolina Center for Functional Medicine, our #1 priority is getting to the root cause of your chronic health issues.

Whether you are struggling with a chronic disorder or simply want to optimize your health, we can provide you with the tools you need and a personalized treatment plan to heal, rebalance, and get your vitality back! 

Patients who ARE a good fit:

  • want to learn about the true cause of their health issues
  • are open minded about learning new things
  • prioritize their health
  • are realistic in their expectations of how long it may take to correct a chronic health condition
  • understand the importance of their participation in the healing process
  • are willing to refer friends and loved ones
  • do not feel that their health care must be limited to only what their health insurance covers

Patients who are NOT a good fit:

  • only seek relief/rescue care when symptoms flair up
  • think they already know everything about their condition
  • prioritize many non-essential things in their life above their health
  • are not realistic in their expectations of how long it may take to correct a chronic health condition
  • expect the clinician to do everything, while they make very little effort in the process
  • expect a medication to be the solution to their problems
  • seek health care based only on what their health insurance covers

Why Choose Us?

A Holistic Approach

Most chronic health concerns are multifaceted, and yet the conventional approach relies on the "One ill, One pill" mentality of diagnosis and treatment.

For the first time, be able to approach your problem from a perspective that isn't just focused on symptom management, but gives you new insight into the various factors contributing to your condition.

Find The Root Cause

Finding the root cause of your problem can be challenging due to the complex interactions of the various systems in your body.

At Carolina Center for Functional Medicine, we have many tools available to assist in our investigation. These tools include a detailed history, validated symptom assessment questionnaires, orthopedic/neurologic physical examination, and cutting edge diagnostic testing.

Personalized Plan

Not only will you be able to find out about the true, underlying cause of your chronic condition, you will also receive a personalized plan to address those issues.

However, it requires more than a plan to realize lasting change. At CCFM, we have the resources and know-how to guide you step by step through your journey to discovering ideal health.

Our Functional Medicine Approach

We at the Carolina Center for Functional Medicine utilize a system for approaching chronic illness called the ADAPT Framework. ADAPT stands for: Advanced Diagnostics And Personalized Treatment. We don’t treat diseases. We treat individuals, using the most advanced, evidence-based diagnostic methods to determine the true underlying cause of a health problem, and to create a personalized treatment plan focused on our patient’s goals.  There is no, “one size fits all” in this process.

We see and treat patients holistically. This means that we recognize that their physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual states, all contribute to their expression of, or lack of expression of health. We do not have “specialists” for different body parts. Instead, we have an evidence-based system that investigates deeply, any imbalances in physiological, nutritional, and emotional well-being. The tests we run are thorough, yet efficient, and provide us with an understanding of the patterns underlying our patient’s health problems.

At Carolina Center for Functional Medicine, you’ll be joined by a care team of functional medicine doctors, health coaches, and psychologists to ensure the fastest return back to health and the most complete system of care.

As such, our integrative medicine approach under the guidance of Dr. Douglas Hanner focuses on:

  • Using a variety of treatment modalities, including using food as medicine in tandem with state of the art testing
  • Focusing holistically on all the areas that impact your health… including mind, emotions, and mindset
  • Focusing on optimal health, based on your unique biological needs, not just the absence of symptoms or disease
  • Teaching patients how to take an active role in health creation, so that they can heal and/or keep chronic illness at bay
  • Acknowledging the multi-factorial nature of complex chronic illness, which requires an experienced clinician who can pinpoint the reasons you have the illness and craft the correct treatment plan
  • Using natural, non-toxic therapies, as much as possible, harnessing the body’s amazing ability to heal itself
