New solutions for chronic health problems

With Avery Carpenter, D.C.

Center for Functional Medicine and Advanced Healing

When you work with us, you are no longer alone. You have a partner in the quest to feel better. You won’t hear, “You just have to learn to live with it,” or “Maybe you need an antidepressant.”

We know your body is designed to be healthy, and if it isn’t, then something is wrong. So together, we investigate. 

We focus on identifying and addressing the underlying cause of your illness rather than just suppressing the symptoms.

This approach is the foundation of our practice and has enabled us to help hundreds of people reverse and heal chronic health issues.

Finding the root cause is the key to getting well

Our approach to health care is to find and address the root causes of your health problems. We don’t mask symptoms with medications. The goal is that you bring your body back into balance and become healthy again. We use the most effective, safe, and natural ways to get you there.

Your body has the ability to heal itself

Our bodies are designed to be healthy. We help you tap into this self-healing ability so that you recover from chronic health problems, learn to maintain good health, and feel great. 

Every person is unique and has individual health needs

Our bodies are made up of complex systems, and a one-size-fits all approach to health care doesn’t ​work. With functional medicine, ​we figure out what your unique body requires to be well and thrive. We work closely with you to create an individualized health plan to get you feeling better.

Best decision ever!

Dr. Carpenter has made a huge difference in my life. Best decision ever!

David Isham

I've finally found someone who truly cares about my health...

I'm a believer! I can honestly say that I've finally found someone who truly cares about my health and well-being. For almost 7 years, I'd met with a variety of doctors for a host of seemingly unrelated health issues. Not one doctor/specialist ever spent the time to really talk to me and dig into my history like Dr. Carpenter did. Armed with LOTS of information, Dr. Carpenter set forth a plan of action to get me back to good health. Her plan did NOT include lots of prescriptions or unnecessary surgery. Her holistic approach makes perfect sense to me. I feel like I've been let down by the traditional medical community compared to the care and healing that I've received from Dr. Carpenter. My current good health is all the confirmation I need. Dr. Carpenter is an amazing doctor.

I'm thankful that I found her. I wholeheartedly recommend her to my family and friends!

Her concern and approach are both refreshing and reassuring.

Dr. Avery has taken care of my family for about 5 years now. I cannot say enough about how professional and intelligent she is. Dr. Avery truly possesses a deep knowledge of human anatomy and physiology. Her concern and approach are both refreshing and reassuring - I feel and function so much better!

I have actually never met a more personable doctor...

I have actually never met a more personable doctor than Dr. Carpenter... This place really seems to care about solving (rather than Bandaid) your health issues.) Huge plus.

She is a caring doctor who truly desires to treat the whole person.

Finding Dr. Carpenter was truly an answer to prayer. I had seen multiple doctors for various issues from IBS-like problems to a chronic bladder infection-like feeling and no one could ever give me a reason for them or figure out how to get rid of them. I was suffering from fatigue in a way that even after getting a good night's sleep I would wake up wishing it was time for bed again. I also started gaining weight for no apparent reason.

Since seeing her my fatigue has gone away, I lost weight, my bladder infection-like feeling has gone away and I no longer have IBS issues... I take no drugs or harmful medications to get my Hashimoto's under control. I feel better than I have in years.

I highly recommend Dr. Carpenter. She is a caring doctor who truly desires to treat the whole person. She is passionate about what she does and has extensive experience and education in understanding the body and finding the core reason for someone's issues.
