“Cooking is all about creativity. Something I taught myself on my journey of 10 years of chronic illness was to include my creativity in my life- especially my food! While everyone else was out drinking beer and eating pizza (which I couldn’t do) I made my life extra special by using ingredients such as tahini,…Details

Dr. Jill recently treated a family member for a chronic problem that other doctors were unable to uncover. Her persistence and integrative approach was finally what led to a diagnosis after months of no answers. What was even more amazing was Dr. Jill did this while she was 1000 miles away in a new practice! She was able to offer phone consultations and email communications were always returned quickly. She is top notch!
I wanted you to know that as an Integrative Functional Medicine doctor you are 10 out of 10. In fact I tell people that you are the only one in the USA that could effectively treat my condition, and I really believe that 🙂
I believe that people who go to functional medicine docs are typically desperate. We are the patients who are at the end of our proverbial rope, tired of taking drug after drug with no relief, and who traditional MDs don’t know what to do with. We just dream of a life without pain and to be able to function again. Thanks to Dr. Carnahan, I have no signs of the rheumatoid arthritis I was diagnosed with in 2012, and I’m regaining function that was stolen by the MS I was diagnosed with in 1991. I am recovering and regaining my life. Dr. Jill Carnahan is simply phenomenal.
