Healing from Chronic Illness

Dr. Jill Carnahan is dual board-certified in Family Medicine and Integrative Holistic Medicine, and serves as the Medical Director of Flatiron Functional Medicine. As a survivor of breast cancer, Crohn’s disease, and debilitating mold toxicity, she brings a unique perspective to her practice by helping others find hope, health and healing through personalized care. In this episode, Dr. Darin and Dr. Jill discuss her journey into functional medicine, why trusting intuition is important, and insights from her Doctor/Patient Documentary.

Addressing the root cause of illness is a crucial step for achieving improved and long-lasting wellness. Functional medicine focuses on identifying these underlying triggers and imbalances, and restoring healthy function, rather than merely managing symptoms. This personalized approach empowers individuals to take an active role in their healing journey, resulting in tailored treatments, effective health outcomes, and an overall improved quality of life.
