Root Cause Medicine 

This practice is for anyone who has ever been told “everything looks fine,” when they don’t feel fine. For anyone who has felt frustrated with the lack of explanation, education, and solutions they need to resolve their health problems. This is for you if you know there must be a better, smarter way to rebuild your health and you are looking for a personalized approach so you and your family can create extraordinary health and live an extraordinary life.

Welcome to Joanne Sumpio Hinson MD PLLC!   Her clinic is focused on partnering with patients to investigate, identify, and resolve the root causes of your health concerns. And she provides you with the education and support you need to learn sustainable health strategies and skills.

She starts by listening,  to understand your story. Your experience combined with your health history and discussion of major life events helps her identify the causes of your health concerns.

In addition, she uses functional lab testing to identify root causes at a cellular level to eliminate blind spots and personalize your treatment. If you need specialty functional testing to help reach your goals, we have contracted with some amazing companies  (Genova, ZRT labs, and DUTCH) to provide  Comprehensive Stool Evaluation, and salivary, as well as urinary,  measurements of cortisol and hormones. All of these tests are done in the comfort of your own home, with the convenience of FedEx shipping labels and containers.

She helps you clarify exactly which vitamins or supplements you need (or don’t need).  While much of your treatment momentum can be gained with customized instructions on food sources and lifestyle changes, many people require temporary (or long term) supplementation based on their unique genetic limitations, digestion inefficiencies, or micronutrient deficiencies.  In this case, she will provide you access to prescription quality supplements through our FullScript dispensary, where she has personally vetted companies that show the highest purity and 3rd party quality certification.

This approach puts you in charge of your health so you can say goodbye to the limitations of annoying and painful health concerns.

A Smarter Approach To Health

Struggling with fatigue even though your thyroid levels are “normal”? You might be surprised to learn that conventional screening methods for thyroid disorders miss 80% of hypothyroid diagnoses.

Looking for medication free ways to support your mood and mental health—plus eliminate brain fog? The newest research on anxiety, depression, and brain health is showing better results by treating digestive function and inflammation than using antidepressants and anti-anxiety meds.

Suffering from zombie-level insomnia? The approach to treating your insomnia will often depend on one majorly overlooked factor: Whether you have issues falling asleep—or staying asleep.

And those are just a few basic examples where functional medicine meets and exceeds what conventional medicine offers us — not just providing a temporary band aid to cover a symptom, but providing a way to heal the from the inside out.

Dr. Joanne Hinson MD, FACOG, FAARM

Dr Hinson’s integrative  approach to diagnosis and treatment recognizes that lasting health depends on resolution of the root cause of a patients disorder.  Her approach includes investigating the whole body , as hormonal health is a result of  the interface with many systems . She believes her role to be a mentor to her patients  involvement in their health. She has a practical approach to health and wellness, smarter diagnostic testing, and prefers nutrition and supplements before prescriptions.

Her mission is to educate you on your body’s signals and help you reach your goals as an ongoing consultant.  Typical results are achieved from 3-6 months of dedicated collaboration.

Functional medicine determines HOW and WHY a disease develops and attempts to restore health by addressing the ROOT CAUSES for each individual.

“I start by viewing your medical history and symptoms through a slightly different perspective than your conventional doctor.  I organize your health story and this allows me to identify key areas of dysfunction and imbalance that can be corrected”.

Conventional medicine aims to categorize and label your symptoms as a diagnosis, in order to match it to a prescription or rehabilitative treatment.  Functional medicine goes upstream to look for causes for your problems and diminish inflammatory influences in your body.
