The Biology of Food Addiction

The Calorie Hypothesis Current view:  Obesity is just lack of will power …eat less, exercise more This model fails because: Our body’s wise compensatory mechanisms defend against weight loss by decreasing energy expenditure and increasing appetite as we diet High glycemic carbohydrates (like added refined sugars, sugar-sweetened beverages, refined grains, and starches) light up the nucleus […]

What people are saying about Dr. Jill Carnahan


I wanted to say THANK YOU!!!! When I woke up this morning I hit the lowest I have weighed since I was in High School and my waist size is actually smaller. Not to mention, I feel like a totally different person. My goals and outlook on life have totally changed because of you and your expert analysis, guidance and most of all SUPPORT.

I will never forget sitting in your office and hearing you say “When we take care of the this bacteria over growth you will start loosing weight” and thinking it couldn’t be that easy… but it was. With proper diet, the right supplements and medicine it’s made a greater change in my life then you will every know. I tell everyone I see about… how spectacular you have been. As I stated above you have changed my life and all in less than 6 months!!!!


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.


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 :-)
