CARLA BROOK, NP-C
Carla Brook aims to give her patients back their quality of life.
Carla Brook approaches medicine radically different than most other doctors. Trained in a variety specialties ranging from bio-identical hormone therapy to biotoxin illnesses, she looks beyond her patient's symptoms to understand and ultimately nourish the underlying imbalances that cause illness. She's currently pursuing a fellowship in Functional Medicine from George Washington University.
Carla Brook has been in the medical field in some capacity for the past 25 years. Her career started in 2000 as an RN where she spent 10 years traveling across Montana working in the ER, OB, and ICU. Carla then graduated from Frontier School of Midwifery and Family Nursing in Hyden, Kentucky, becoming a nurse practitioner in 2007 practicing emergency medicine, family practice and internal medicine. Because of the desire to improve health with more natural modalities, in 2012 she decided to make the transition into Integrative Medicine. Her integrative practice includes both pharmaceuticals (only when absolutely necessary) and natural treatments to help her patients obtain the best health they can.
As if the medical field wasn't enough, Carla Brook has also taught nursing at Salish Kootenai College in Pablo, Montana.
She specializes in bio-identical hormone therapies and ensures comprehensive, individualized care for each patient.
In 2014 she received her certification in Mold/Lyme/CIRS illness. This has brought a whole new dimension to her practice. In addition, Carla Brook is one of the few in the nation certified in the Shoemaker Protocol, a certification process only completed with one on one training with Dr. Shoemaker.
Brook believes in the old saying, "you reap what you sow;" this is true for the human body. People need to take care of their body for it to work properly. Exposure to a toxic environment does not make it easier to stay healthy. We will discuss ways to eliminate exposure to toxins and ways to eliminate them when exposed.
She also specializes in life change counseling; there are many reasons why a person cannot lose weight. It is not always about lack of exercise or eating too much food. Food allergies and hormones also play a significant role in a person’s ability to lose weight. People are individuals and should be treated as such. We will work together to find an individual plan for each person according to your health history and the type of lifestyle you lead.
