The Carolina Center
Founded in 1994, the Carolina Center for Integrative Medicine assists patients of all ages in regaining their health and maintaining good health throughout their lives through proactive self care, scientifically-based complementary therapies, and preventive medicine. We believe that the best medicine involves the careful integration of conventional, complementary, and alternative therapies and that this approach will lead to safer, more affordable, and more effective healthcare. We believe that the most effective health care is aimed at comprehensively addressing the unique and diverse needs of each individual. We provide a range of biologically based, innovative treatments for chronic disease as well as self-care strategies for keeping people healthy over the long term. As the oldest integrative medicine facility in the Triangle area, the Carolina Center combines complementary, alternative, and conventional therapies in a systematic way so as to establish a strong foundation for health and healing.
What's New at The Carolina Center
Intravenous Immunoglobulin Therapy Now Available!
New Uses for an Old Therapy - An Immune System Transfusion
There have been ever-increasing recommendations from many experts in the fields of chronic disease, chronic infection and immune dysfunction that physicians caring for these patients not only address underlying infections but also help restore optimal immune function especially in conventionally documentable cases. Responding these encouraging reports, the Carolina Center has begun providing intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIG) therapy which can generally be covered by insurance with proper validation through lab testing. This therapy can transform the response to treatment for many, especially those who have plateaued in their healing process. (See IVIG handout)

Breast Cancer Screening
Carolina Thermascan has been providing Breast Thermography since 2004.
A Thermascan is highly effective in detecting breast abnormalities and an excellent tool for breast health risk assessment.
It involves no direct contact, carries no risk or side effects. It is pain-free, non-invasive, and carries NO risk of radiation exposure.
The sensitivity is superior to that of mammography and ideal in situations where mammograms tend to be inaccurate or unsafe.
