Tired of not feeling well?

Frustrated about seeing many doctors who don’t know how to help?
Looking for help putting the whole picture together?
With nearly 20 years of experience in holistic and integrative medicine, Dr. Michael Sharp leads a small multi-disciplinary team dedicated to transforming chronic illness and pain into enduring well-being at our holistic wellness center. Instead of treating symptoms with prescriptions drugs, our work aims to heal the underlying causes of chronic illness and create conditions for well-being to blossom. Our medicine is holistic, based in our experience that all elements of health are connected, and roots of illness cannot be discovered or healed in isolation.
We believe our most powerful tool is the meaningful, personal, working relationship with our patients.
Our holistic wellness center is located in a peaceful rural setting 10 miles south of Chapel Hill, North Carolina. We are pleased to work with people of all ages, from far and wide, in a synergistic collaboration that involves
- cutting edge Functional Medicine diagnostic testing
- expert nutritional counseling
- nutritional supplementation based on lab findings
- stress resilience training
- resolution of unresolved trauma
- integrative health coaching
- education for healthy behaviors and habit change
- continuous communication and support
- in some cases, high dose intravenous nutrition infusions
As our patient, your individualized program starts with an in-depth evaluation of your health history, current challenges, and aspirations for well-being. Dr. Sharp then designs and proposes a program of 3 to 6 months of comprehensive personal care by our team to address the physical, nutritional, emotional, social, and spiritual aspects of healing. Your program will initiate with a comprehensive set of diagnostic tests chosen to illuminate physiological and metabolic factors of your illness. You will be provided a program of nutritional supplementation. For most of our patients, a supervised cleanse diet is a profound factor for improvement of symptoms and establishing much healthier eating habits. Visits with Dr. Sharp will include exploration of the possibility that traumatic experience has contributed to your illness, and gentle relief of unresolved trauma reactions that can be obstacles to your healing. Regular sessions with your integrative health coach will nurture your ownership of your healing process, guide you in practices to calm your nervous system, and bolster your commitment. All elements of your program support permanent physiological, behavioral and emotional changes necessary to bring about enduring well-being.
If you are a cancer patient, we will apply our continuously-researched expertise to provide support for your body and mind to combat the disease and increase your chances of survival.

We are glad to work with your oncologist to establish the best strategies for minimizing harmful side effects of treatment and improving quality of life.
