OUR PROCESS | A STEPWISE APPROACH TO ACHIEVING OPTIMAL HEALTH
Our team takes a comprehensive look at your genetic analysis, laboratory results, microbiome, and lifestyle factors in order to craft a plan that fits your health, fitness, and longevity goals.
“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.” – John Muir
STEP 1 | GENETICS
Addressing cardiac, neurologic, performance, fatigue, or any other issue requires us to focus first on the entire system, so we start with your DNA. We sequence your DNA to analyze all of your genetic advantages, predispositions, and disadvantages. This makes up your human operating system, and knowing this code is critical to optimizing your health.
STEP 2 | EXTENSIVE TESTING
Next, we take a comprehensive look at your current health through blood testing to evaluate your lipids, thyroid function, cardiovascular risks, hormone status, minerals, vitamins, and any factor that can affect how you feel and perform.
STEP 3 | LONGEVITY
We can now test for and impact your biologic age. We do this by sending you a specific DNA methylation test kit that we combine with your genomic and blood test results to create a personalized longevity protocol. We then apply this to reverse your biologic age and perform follow up testing to make sure we’re actually reversing it.
STEP 4 | LIFESTYLE FACTORS
All of the data we have gathered at this point is valuable, however we need to evaluate it in the context of your life. So, now we take a closer look at the things we can’t measure through a test. For example:
What do you eat? When do you eat? With whom do you eat?
How is your family life? What about your social life? Who do you love and spend time with?
When do you go to bed? How do you sleep? When do you wake up? Do you wake up with an alarm? Do you wake up multiple times throughout the night?
What do you do for exercise and recreation? How often and with whom?
What are your hobbies? What are your goals? Where do you see yourself in 5 years? What are your main short-term and long-term goals?
Do you have religious or spiritual beliefs? How much stress do you have in your life and how do you deal with it? Do you have a mindfulness practice?
FINAL | TRUE PERSONALIZED MEDICINE
Finally, we combine this wealth of information to create a complete health optimization plan for you. We use a layered approach to identify your ideal diet, exercise regimen, supplements, bedtime routine, and other lifestyle factors. For example, the perfect diet for you will depend on:
Genomics – Do you have genetics that make you need more choline, folate, or Vitamin D? Does your DNA make you very sensitive to gluten, dairy, refined carbohydrates, or saturated fat?
Blood testing – Do you have insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, or other deficiencies in vitamins, thyroid, or hormones that need to be addressed?
Biologic Age – We can now test for and impact your biologic age. We do this by sending you a specific DNA methylation test kit that we combine with your genomic and blood test results to create a personalized longevity protocol. We then apply this to reverse your biologic age and perform follow up testing to make sure we’re actually reversing it.
What do YOU like to eat? This is critical. We think food should bring joy to your life, not just make you healthier. We will aim to give you a realistic food plan that you can enjoy.
We work with you to identify your goals. We take an objective, data-driven approach using blood tests, frequent check-ins, remote monitoring, and wearables that we track in real time to make sure you stay on target.

Integrative medicine encompasses all modalities of healing that have evidence. By using an integrative approach, we can help boost your wellness using a variety of modalities. Integrative medicine often uses conventional methods to provide a diagnosis. Treatments include complementary and alternative therapies that fall outside of the realm of conventional medicine.
Your treatment will be individually tailored after a thorough review of your medical history and will include lifestyle approaches, dietary supplements and botanicals, stress and mind-body techniques and possible referral to other complementary and whole systems based practitioners. This may include, but is not limited to, traditional chinese medicine, ayurvedic medicine, energy healing, sound healing and manual therapy.
Dr. Mulcahy completed a 2-year fellowship in integrative medicine with Dr. Weill’s University of Arizona Center of Integrative Medicine and will help you review all aspects of your current health and lifestyle. Through your comprehensive evaluation, Dr. Mulcahy will work with you to formulate a protocol that helps get you back to doing what you love.

Functional medicine treats you, the patient, not the disease. Functional medicine falls under the umbrella of integrative medicine and looks to uncover the root cause of illness to help you thrive not just survive.
Cars run on different fuels ranging from diesel to gasoline to electricity. If you try to put gasoline into an electric car, not only will the car not run, you’ll likely cause some significant damage. Humans also vary and have many different requirements to ensure proper function. We have adapted to survive in particular environments and when our environments change faster than we can adapt, mismatch occurs.
Our genetics are like the hand of cards we’re dealt when we are born and how we play those cards is our epigenetics. Stress, exercise, sleep and diet will all affect whether or not our genetic predisposition becomes a disease. The way we live today and many of the foods we eat today would be unrecognizable by our great grandparents and three generations is not enough time for our bodies to adapt. This is likely in large part why 50 million Americans have auto-immune diseases (more than heart disease and cancer combined). Once you have one auto-immune disease, you are three times more likely to develop another auto-immune disease. The good news is through functional and ancestral medicine, we have tools to help you prevent or reverse auto-immune diseases.
By looking at each patient individually rather than treating the symptoms of a disease, we will help optimize function and reverse disease processes rather than settle for normal. Functional medicine uses a holistic approach to determine the root cause(s) of a disease or disorder.
All aspects of your medical history are thoroughly reviewed to formulate your individualized treatment plan. Environmental and genetic factors may also be reviewed to determine underlying causes of disease and to gain deeper insight into your state of health. Treatment plans will address stress, diet, exercise and sleep to help you reverse or prevent illness. We may also use neurofeedback to optimize your brain waves. Because functional medicine focuses greatly on the personalization of medicine, it is considered by many the future model of healthcare and used in conjunction with precision medicine which targets therapies based on molecular diagnostics.
Dr. Mulcahy completed a one year functional and ancestral medicine certification program with Chris Kresser’s ADAPT academy.
