Doctor T, MD

Doctor T, MD is a double board-certified internal medicine and integrative medicine physician who specializes in providing intensive natural treatments for complex or advanced medical conditions. With 13 years of experience practicing in both standard medical (inpatient acute hospital care) and alternative medical settings, Doctor T has found that healing is optimized when the patient’s unique physiology is understood and addressed; and when care is personalized and curated from all available resources with an open & analytical mind. Natural medicine brings us a myriad of options for consideration, but can be challenging to navigate and access when a medical condition is complex or advanced.

In states of advanced or complex illness, natural medicines may need to be used at high doses, in alternative delivery forms, or with close monitoring by a physician. Doctor T has designed her clinic to serve this population. She designs her treatment protocols around therapies that have a long history of use across a wide variety of conditions – indicating that these therapies are working to support our broader innate healing systems, and carry a relatively low risk of harm when carefully monitored and selected for the patient’s physiology. She provides many of the cornerstone therapies directly from the clinic in Marshall, NC.

  • Moderate Hyperbaric Oxygen
  • IV Antioxidants and Nutrients
  • Complementary & Alternative Prescription Medicine
  • Personalized Dietary, Herbal & Supplement Consultation

Advanced natural therapies are generally prescribed for brief periods at intensive doses with close clinical follow-up to track progress. While they can be intensive, these therapies are intended to be restorative and yield sustainable results – they are generally not intended to be long term therapies. Our goal is to get your health optimized by supporting your own intrinsic healing mechanisms in a sustainable, long lasting way.

The Process.

STEP 1

INITIAL CONSULT:

Understanding

Meet with Doctor T to review your health history in-depth. This is not your usual medical intake — you will focus on identifying clues in your health history that explain your personalized physiology and symptoms.  Initial therapies, testing, and lifestyle changes will be mapped and initiated. 

STEP 2

FIRST FOLLOW-UP:

Planning & Motivating

Your first follow-up with Doctor T you will discuss any testing results, early responses to interventions, and fine-tune your health plan. Doctor T’s philosophy leads her to most often use herbs and foods preferentially over supplements, and may use prescriptions, IV therapies, or hyperbaric oxygen for more advanced or severe conditions.  Adjunctive physical, psychological & spiritual therapies can be helpful for all levels and conditions. 

STEP 3

2nd & 3rd FOLLOW-UP:

Advance & Adjust

Meet regularly with Doctor T to track your progress, modify your care plan, and ultimately transition to a longterm plan that is self-sustainable and rewarding. 

STEP 4

CONTINUOUS SUPPORT

Our support staff will be easily available to you in between appointments to make sure you can easily navigate your care plan and get your questions answered in real-time. 

The Services.

MILD HYPERBARIC OXYGEN

HBOT can be a safe, effective treatment for many types of medical conditions because it activates the body’s natural healing and anti-oxidant mechanisms, even in areas with poor blood flow which can be difficult to affect with other treatment modalities. It is a therapy that yields its restorative properties with chronic & long term use, however many users start to notice improvements in their symptoms after just a few treatments.

CHELATION THERAPY

Chelation means a medication that acts as a chelator or “claw” to bind and remove substances from the body. Sodium EDTA, a medical chelation compound, was first used to remove heavy metals from the body in the 1950s and doctors noticed incidentally that patients had symptoms of better blood flow to the heart after therapy. It has since been extensively studied and used as an alternative therapy for atherosclerosis.

IV ANTIOXIDANT & NUTRIENT THERAPY

Inflammation has been a unifying feature of most identified chronic medical conditions. While our systems are equipped with intrinsic anti-oxidant and restorative systems to counter our day-to-day toxin load, these systems can be overwhelmed and depleted with chronic medical conditions or symptoms. By repleting our stores and reinstating our natural anti-oxidant systems, homeostasis can be restored and benefit a variety of conditions.

CUSTOMIZED NUTRITIONAL ASSESSMENT & SUPPORT

We understand the importance of addressing your unique physiology and curating a care plan tailored to your specific needs. With a comprehensive health assessment, we gain insight into your biology to create a custom plan that works for you. Our continuous support ensures that we can monitor your progress and make adjustments to your plan as needed.
