Functional Medicine Whitinsville

  • Have you been to countless doctors and specialists who tell you everything is "normal"?
  • Are your symptoms not improving and/or new symptoms are popping up?
  • Are you tired of taking medications that do not help you to feel better and come with numerous side effects?
  • Are you looking for an alternative to traditional healthcare?
  • Are you sick and tired of feeling "sick and tired"?
  • Do you want to spend more than 10-15 minutes per visit with your doctor? 

The Whole Body Health practice at CHC Whitinsville is run by Dr. Jess Roan and Roann Karns. Whole Body Health is a Functional Medicine approach which seeks to identify and address the root causes of disease, and views the body as one integrated system, not a collection of independent organs divided up by medical specialties. It treats the whole system, not just the symptoms.  

  • We use a detailed health history, systems-oriented approach, and functional medicine testing to help find and address the root-cause of your issues instead of simply treating symptoms.
  • We focus on reversing conditions and prevention through individualized diet recommendations, supplements, lifestyle modifications and stress reduction.
  • We spend a minimum of 60-90 minutes with new patients on their first visit so that we can get a complete picture of your health, not just a snapshot of your symptoms.
  • We partner with you on your health journey, supporting you each step of the way on your path to healing.
