What is Functional Neurology?
What is Functional Medicine?
Non-drug approaches to working with the body for thyroid, neurological, and other chronic conditions.
Aren’t you practicing Medicine?
Absolutely not! Medicine uses drugs to rule over body processes by suppressing the symptoms. I use common sense methods that support and work with your body through neurological stimulation, nutrition, diet, sleep, exercise, and more. I am more concerned with restoring function.
What testing can I do through your office?
Any blood test, toxic elements assessments (Blood, hair, and urine), urinalysis, and digital xrays.
What do you check in my blood?
We will perform the most comprehensive nutrition and health program in the Jonesboro / Northeast Arkansas area. Based on a 52-point blood panel and an in-depth analysis of your urine and hair, your plan will include recommendations for supplements, foods to avoid, a comprehensive review of your medications, side effects, and more. As well as planned follow-up visits to make sure that you are headed in the right direction!
Do I have to buy my vitamins and supplements from you?
Absolutely not! But, if you DO prefer to buy them from us, we will have a fresh stock of vitamins on hand for purchase that Dr. Scarbrough recommends.
Can you help if I’m taking medications?
Yes. However, the more drugs you are taking, the more difficult your case will be. But taking medications does not disqualify you from getting our help and getting great results. But you need to understand that I will NEVER tell you to stop taking any medication, only your medical doctor can do that.
Our goal is to get you healthy enough that your doctor will decrease or take you off your medications because you wont need them anymore.
Why doesn’t my doctor know about this stuff?
The problem that I've seen, is that your doctor is so inundated with running their practice and trying to follow the constantly changing rules of the government, insurances, and the drug reps, that they no longer have time to keep up with the most current methods. They just simply don't stay current with scientific research on non-drug methods of supporting the body. Or they are either stuck in a time warp from 30 years ago. You would not believe the demands on your medical doctors time to just stay in practice now days.
I live out of town/out of state/out of the country…can you still help me?
Yes. Their initial visit and blood work is done in my office and locally, then their follow up care is remotely done via email and by telephone. My front desk can help you with travel plans.
Do you still see chiropractic patients or do DOT physicals via walk-in?
Sure! We still do walk-in chiropractic and DOT physicals.
But hours are set aside to spend with neurometabolic patients suffering with more difficult cases such as thyroid, gut dysfunction, and other chronic diseases. These patients are scheduled with an appt so that I can spend more time with them.
