Health Professionals in Chapel Hill, NC
"Dr. Davis intent as a practitioner is to partner and assist her clients toward their maximum wellness. Therefore, her practice is patient centered instead of diagnosis centered. Allopathic or traditional Western medicine is superb for certain conditions such as acute infections, surgical conditions, and specific interventions, however that form of treatment may not always address the best methods of management for chronic illnesses or conditions. Integrative medicine is a lens by which a practitioner examines the patient from their perspective, genetics, environmental influences, personality, hormonal influences and other components. Each patient is unique in this perspective."

My treatment is most effective for chronic inflammatory and degenerative diseases such as obesity, diabetes, IBS, food allergies, auto-immune diseases, high blood pressure, elevated cholesterol, and cancer."
