Welcome to the Evolution of Medicine podcast! This episode is the third and final installment in our series with Carrie Jones, ND, MPH and DUTCH Test. Dr. Carrie Jones is a force in the functional medicine community, a modern doc with a holistic approach who can appreciate the best of both medical practices. In her own words, she “helps hormonally challenged people feel less crazy” by using testing and her own extensive knowledge to help people understand their hormones so they can feel empowered to take control of their health.
In this episode, Dr. Jones dives into case studies explaining the cortisol awakening response, assessment and treating chronic diseases. Through these explanations, she provides a clear picture of how CAR testing can be practically applied and the opportunities it provides practitioners trying to help patients caught in a cycle of stress. It was a fascinating 30-minute episode, and an excellent way to cap off our series with Dr. Jones and DUTCH Test.
