Humanity has been engaged in a decades-long war against superbugs. These drug-resistant microbes threaten our return to a pre-antibiotic era – one in which common infections were often deadly. And so far, drug developers haven’t been able to keep up. In the U.S. alone, at least 2 million people become infected with antibiotic-resistant bacteria every year, leading to anywhere from 23,000 to 150,000 deaths.Details

This Little-Known Bacterium Could Be The Infectious Cause of Crohn’s Disease – And It Can Be Treated
If you or a loved one has suffered from Crohn’s disease, you may have been told that the exact cause of your misery is still unknown. They might have told you there are many possible causes for Crohn’s disease – age, ethnicity, family history, immunodeficiency, history of NSAIDs use, etc.Details
If you’ve ever spent time reading about allergies, you might have come across people talking about Mast Cell Activation Syndrome (MCAS). People with Mast Cell Activation Syndrome often struggle just to obtain a diagnosis – due to the complexity of the disease and the lack of awareness within the mainstream medical community, patients can go months, if not several years, without relief for their illness.Details
Now imagine this happening in your own body. Your connective tissue – the “glue” that helps hold everything in place – is poorly constructed and isn’t strong enough, meaning that your skin and joints can stretch and hyperextend beyond normal human limits. The thought of being super flexible might sound cool, until you realize that it’s not just the limbs that get all jumbled up, your nerves do, too.This is a reality for people with Ehlers-Danlos Syndromes.Details
In one way or another, we’re all touched by depression. But if you or a loved one has ever sought help for depression, you’ve probably come across the same textbook explanation: Depression is a result of chemical imbalances in your brain that affect your mood.

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.
