Guest Blog by Dr. Anna Cabeca “I don’t feel like myself.” I hear this often in my practice among women struggling with hormone imbalance. They’re suffering wild mood swings: Irritable and snappy in the morning, depressed when the workday ends, and then anxious as bedtime approaches. Happiness rarely comes, and they can’t recall the last…Details
Dr. Jill works as a functional medicine consultant in conjunction with your current health care team and is not considered a replacement for your primary care physician. She requires all new patients to have a primary care physician to cover emergencies and routine care and screening.
While the B vitamin complex might get a lot of attention, there’s one specific type that deserves a spotlight of its own – and that’s vitamin B6. This article is more than a list of benefits… It’s a deep dive into the role of B6 in your body. I think this vitamin is often overlooked and underrated so I wanted to be sure to explain exactly why it’s so important.Details
Growing up, your parents probably told you that an apple a day keeps the doctor away. Turns out, apple cider vinegar may do just the same. From weight loss to cold and cough remedies to insect repellent, this superfood seems to be good for, well, just about everything.

More and more we are discovering toxins in many household products and building materials. So, if you think your home is toxin-free, think again.

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.

I am recovering and regaining my life. Dr. Jill Carnahan is simply phenomenal.
