    Chronic health issues are more common today than ever. One of the biggest challenges people face is cutting through all the different advice & information and figuring how to get back on track. Often we get no help from our doctors. There’s conflicting information on this diet and that diet. A Google search just convinces you that you’re dying. We’re embarrassed to admit to our friends and family that we’re STILL struggling.

    I’m happy to report that there is hope. I know it for sure because I’ve been there. I struggled for years with fatigue, frequent infections, weekly migraines, atrocious acne, awful PMS, and on and on.

    And, I know first hand about autoimmune disease. I have Hidradenitis Suppurativa. What, you’ve never heard of HS? You’re not alone. Turns out most people, even doctors, haven’t either.

    I tried Plan A: Wait & see what happens. Just got worse.

    I tried Plan B: Medicate it. So now I’m on prescriptions but not getting healthy.

    Past that, what is there? This is where most people get hung up.

    There is a Plan C! Learn about your body. Work with a good guide. Do smart things to get you healthier. Change your future.

    I followed Plan C and now I’m in the best health of my life. And my autoimmune condition is 99% in check because of how I’ve learned to live.


    I work with chronically ill people all from all over the U. S. who have a reason to live a good life. Want to be a better mother, go for that MBA, travel, follow your passion? Life is meant to be fun and meaningful, but you can’t show up as your best self if you feel like crap (that’s a technical term).

    The benefits of working with me one-on-one are that you get education, guidance, and support that you need to heal. This is not a “Here, just take this pill approach.” You will learn how to manage your health, inspire your family & friends to be healthier, and how to make changes to your lifestyle so that your chronic health problems are never a problem again.

    I’ve helped hundreds of people reverse the symptoms of chronic illness and start living the rich and fulfilling life they’ve only imagined.

    If you are struggling to find good health, I’d be happy to help you get started.

    We start with an initial 30-minute online consult so I can hear your story and design a starting plan for you. Schedule yourself on my online calendar.


    I was a Woodruff Scholar in a pre-med track at Emory University, where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Human Biology. I am a Magna Cum Laude graduate of Parker College of Chiropractic (now Parker University), where I was 4th in my class and received the “Outstanding in Diagnosis” achievement award.

    I continue with rigorous post-graduate training in Functional Wellness, nutrition, and Applied Kinesiology in order to stay current with new research findings and to offer my patients the most effective and individualized treatment recommendations.

    I am a 2012 graduate of the Institute of Functional Medicine’s AFMCP (Applying Functional Medicine in Clinical Practice) program. I also served on the Board of the International College of Applied Kinesiology from 2012 to 2014.

“I have been working with Dr. Carpenter for 3 years, and she has truly changed my life. For ten years I have struggled with mysterious symptoms … metabolic, neurological, physical, hormonal. I saw a myriad of doctors, physical therapists, chiropractors and more, and failed to make real progress for about 7 years. …

“…Dr. Carpenter’s expertise goes far beyond traditional chiropractic. She brings functional medicine, nutrition, applied kinesiology and more tools, as well as a patient problem-solving approach. …

“…The results for me have been phenomenal. Three years ago I couldn’t walk my dog around the block, and now I walk miles a day. I am strong, active, out of pain and able to keep pace with a very hectic life. And best of all, I make improvements every day. I would recommend Dr. Carpenter to anyone with a desire to improve their quality of life and health.”
