The Partnership

Carolina HealthSpan Institute

We understand that individuals experiencing Cognitive Decline are confused about their health and scared about their future. At Carolina HealthSpan Institute we empower individuals and their families to rebuild their health, avoid further decline in all aspects of life and regain control of their future.

SOF Health Initiative

The SOF Health Initiatives Program is a Mind, Body, Spirit, and Purpose-driven program focused on finding the root causes of illness and treating them with Functional Medicine. The SOF Health Initiatives Program offers a full system, patient-centric approach to medicine and creates an environment conducive to healing and recovery.

The Program

The SOF Health Initiatives Program transcends the typical approaches known today as conventional health care. Whereas, the SOF Health Initiatives Program offers a full system, patient-centric approach to resolving health complaints and creates an environment conducive to healing and recovery based on each individual’s biochemical individuality and genetic uniqueness.

Carolina HealthSpan Institute was chosen as the first Functional Medicine & Brain Enhancement practice outside of the Cleveland Clinic to provide services & guidance to SOF Health Initiatives Program participants.
