embracing holistic health

At the Unscripted Clinic, we prioritize patient-centered care that views health as more than just the absence of disease. By understanding each patient's unique story, we develop personalized health plans that allow health to thrive. Our science-based approach, led by Cara Merak, our Functional Medicine nurse, examines the complex interactions in a patient's history, physiology, and lifestyle to identify root causes of illness. We consider genetic factors and both internal and external influences on health. Integrating traditional medical practices with proven elements of alternative medicine, we focus on healing and prevention through nutrition, exercise, sleep optimization, functional tests, and tailored treatments that may include herbal remedies, supplements, and stress-management techniques.
