True North is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) health care practice and research organization devoted to integrating state-of-the-art medical care with proven complementary therapies. We provide a patient-centered environment that allows enough time for a partnership to develop between patient and practitioner.

We believe a healthier model of health care is based on:

  • Viewing health as a positive vitality, not merely the absence of disease
  • Providing enough time for patients and practitioners to meet together to establish trust and allow the full details of a person’s history to unfold
  • Providing a way for physicians and complementary therapists to collaborate, which gives our patients access to the best combination of appropriate therapies
  • Offering a Functional Medicine approach to treat the underlying causes of illness through highly individualized therapies
  • Providing a physical environment designed to emphasize healing, partnership, and relaxation.

Our Model: Our model is based on the idea that anywhere in the country, you can find a group of like-minded practitioners who want to offer health care in an integrative setting. The core elements of our model include:

  • Physicians, nurses and complementary practitioners working together under the same roof
  • Patients having time to tell his or her story
  • Patients and practitioners using their time together to develop a relationship of trust
  • Individualized treatments created based on appropriate therapies
  • Integrated health records (charts) to provide maximum access for collaboration/integration
  • A nonhierarchical form called circle process is used to govern the organization
  • An emphasis on Functional Medicine as a medical model that mirrors our integrative approach
  • Removing barriers to care (ex. insurance provider) while enhancing the doctor-patient relationship
