BIOGRAPHY

Dr. Jill Carnahan is Your Functional Medicine Expert®. She uses functional medicine to help patients find the root cause of their illness and identify nutritional and biochemical imbalances that may be contributing to your symptoms. Dr. Jill will search for underlying triggers that contribute to your illness through cutting-edge lab testing and tailor the intervention to your specific individual needs. She uses nutrition, supplements, lifestyle changes, or medication to treat your illness, and always seeks the gentlest and least invasive way to help you find hope, restore health and optimize healing.

She completed her residency at the University of Illinois in Family Medicine at Methodist Medical Center and received her medical degree from Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago. She received her Bachelor of Science degree in Bioengineering at the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana.

Dr. Jill was dually board certified in Family Medicine in 2006-2016 and in Integrative Holistic Medicine since 2005. She founded the Methodist Center for Integrative Medicine in Peoria, Illinois in 2009 and worked there as medical director. Then in 2010, she moved to Boulder, Colorado and opened Flatiron Functional Medicine where she has a widely sought-after medical practice with a broad range of clinical service including nutritional consultations, chiropractic therapy, naturopathic medicine, acupuncture, and massage therapy.

Dr. Jill is survivor of both breast cancer and Crohn’s disease and passionate about teaching patients how to live well and thrive in the midst of complex and chronic illness. She is also a widely sought-after inspirational speaker and travels around the world to teach physicians the principles of personalized and functional medicine. She is a prolific writer, speaker, and loves to infuse others with her passion for hope, health and healing!

She has been featured in Shape Magazine, Parade, Forbes, MindBodyGreen, First for Women, Townsend Newsletter, and The Huffington Post as well as seen on NBC News and Health segments with Joan Lunden.
