Welcome To


The North Carolina Integrative Medical Society invites health care practitioners to join NCIMS in promoting safe and effective patient-centered health care.

Join Our Community & Help Transform the Future of Medicine


Our nonprofit membership society, a 501(c)6, was founded to expand the practice of integrative and functional medicine throughout the Carolinas (and beyond!) NCIMS does this through its well-established, high-quality educational events: the Southeast Regional Integrative Medical Conference, which offers continuing education credits for many functional med practitioners, two Grand Rounds per year, and exclusive discounts from our partners (like up to 40% off select A4M fellowship modules, programs by ILADS, Primal Trust, and SAFM!) We are an inclusive community of like-minded providers who share a passion for functional/integrative approaches to health. Our members learn not only through our programs, but also through networking to share knowledge, experience and best practices.

Network – Learn – Connect

What Our Members Have To Say...

What Makes Us Different?

At NCIMS, we focus on getting to the root causes of your chronic wellness issues – examining the key cellular imbalances that are responsible for virtually all symptoms you’re experiencing right now.

Also known as functional medicine, our care is so effective because we focus on dealing with the “up-stream” catalyst of chronic illnesses – including toxicity in your home or work-place, potential food intolerances and allergies, to gut & hormonal imbalances, and mindset issues that all determine how healthy you are.

Our Unique Approach

Our approach is so unique because we address your current AND longterm health in our comprehensive programs. Our goal is to restore your body’s innate healing potential by removing triggering conditions & events, supporting detox and cellular rebuilding. 

After our in-depth intake, exploring both past and present symptoms and reviewing lab tests, we’ll craft a personalized treatment protocol for your specific needs so you can finally leave your chronic dis-ease behind.

Our Philosophy

Functional Medicine is the “medicine of the future” because it focuses on restoring your body’s innate healing potential, and not just treating symptoms. It uses a combination of science-driven testing with holistic health practices, to treat the whole person and not just parts of your body.

 Since each person is biologically unique, a “one size fits all” approach never works. That’s why when you have a precise understanding of what triggered the symptoms, you can craft a precise treatment plan without relying on guesswork!
