How do I know if Functional Medicine is Right for Me?
If you have struggled to find answers and true solutions in the traditional medical communities, you may need a more health focused and patient centered approach. Masking symptoms with drugs will only provide temporary relief, but will never solve the underlying problem. With a Functional Medicine approach, you can expect more one on one time with your provider, coaching, education, advanced lab analysis and other diagnostics along with various forms of treatment including supplements, compounded medications, specific nutrition and exercise programs and more. If you have experienced any of the following symptoms or conditions, we can help.
How is it Different at Carolina HealthSpan Institute?
There are many different terms and organizations for medicine outside of the traditional circles. Alternative, integrative, functional, anti-aging, preventive, proactive, holistic… The key is finding the right group of healthcare providers, lead by Medical Doctors with a never-ending thirst for knowledge and understanding of how to really solve the conditions and issues of their patients. Since 2004, Dr. Brown has been identifying and treating the root causes to his patient’s symptoms. Our team has grown from one to nine medical and mental health providers, our services and knowledge has expanded, but our principles have not. Proper education and certification is critical and our providers are all board certified in their specialty. However, experience is of the utmost importance, and we’ve helped over 10,000 individuals take control of their health and improve their lives!

What Can I Expect From My Visit?
We start with up to one hour with every patient. This first visit will be with one of our Medical Doctors, and you will be asked to fill out some medical and health information prior to the visit. After understanding your current health concerns and some history, one of our MD’s will discuss the details of our programs and together you will mutually decide if one of our programs is the right fit for you, your health goals and timelines. If it’s a match, we move forward and will schedule some diagnostic testing, office visits and get you set up with one of our health coaches or patient liaisons. Usually, programs last up to six-months and contain education, diagnostics, office visits and various forms of treatment. You will become an active partner in achieving your health goals rather than a passive participant.

An explanation of Functional Medicine from the Institute of Functional Medicine
“Since doing Neurofeedback in the summer, I feel like a different person. Neurofeedback has really helped change my life and I feel like I’m getting to know myself in a new way without all my anxieties!
Local Business Owner
“When I came in I was experiencing a lot of panic attacks and anxiety. Panic made me afraid of doing everyday things like driving, flying and working in a tall building uptown. With neurofeedback, I was able to conquer my fears. I just feel like a normal person now.”
“I am a 57 year old flight attendant who lives in Florida and feels unquestionably Dr. Brown and the Carolina HealthSpan Institute has literally changed the way I migrate my way through life as a woman in her fifties and travels a lot.”
