At Lam Clinic, we believe that your body has the intrinsic ability to heal itself with the right natural tools. We also believe that conventional allopathic medicine has an important role to contribute to whole person care. We are integrative physicians trained to focus, not on symptoms that mask underlying concerns, but the root cause that is the source of the problem. This functional approach to medicine, along with integrating conventional and natural medicine, makes our practice uniquely qualified to handle your complex medical conditions when conventional medicine has given up or offers no tangible solution for you.
If you want someone who listens, understands, and respects your body’s wisdom and believes in its self-healing ability, then Integrative functional medicine is what you need for optimal health. This is not about pushing prescription medications and following protocols that only works for the masses, but about personalization and tailored medical care to fit each body’s unique short and long term needs.
We are able to provide the best tools and knowledge in lifestyle, and orthomolecular and nutritional medicine, in order to get your health to its most optimal functioning.
Our mission at Lam Clinic is to serve, empower, and educate patients to embrace vitality and wellness for the whole person physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually.

Frequently Asked Questions
1. What is NeuroEndoMetabolic Nutritional Program?
NeuroEndoMetabolic (NEM) Nutritional Program is a holistic and natural approach to help the body overcome chronic symptoms of stress. It provides a big picture view to the whole body and has successful outcomes helping people regain their vitality. The NEM Stress Response is composed of 6 different circuits and 12 organ or systems that work together to combat stress. When the circuits become overwhelmed, they become dysfunctional and both neuroendocrine and metabolic symptoms occur. NEM Nutritional Program identifies the root cause of all your symptoms and builds your body from the ground up nutritionally. Read more here.
2. Do you accept insurance?
If you have insurance, we can provide you with a bill that you can submit to your insurance company. We do not bill insurance for you, but do have a resource that can provide you support in helping you with that process for free (Medical Bill Gurus). As the Lam Clinic does not accept insurance or participate with any insurance plan, and has opted out of Medicare/Medicaid, patients will need a private insurance policy with out of network coverage to secure reimbursements. Typically, a private PPO insurance policy is ideal to have a chance at securing insurance reimbursements, but the results vary from policy to policy and nothing is guaranteed based on a multitude of variables such as insurance carrier, level of coverage, out of network deductible, etc. To determine if you have the adequate level of coverage and benefits to potentially secure insurance reimbursements for treatments received at the Lam Clinic, we recommend you sign up for a free case evaluation with Medical Bill Gurus, where they will sit down to review your policy and go over the process. Feel free to give them a call at 1-800-674-7836 or email email@example.com to sign up for a free case evaluation.
3. Do you work with patients outside of California?
Yes, I offer long-distance telemedicine consultations internationally and to these states in America: Florida, Indiana, Arizona, California, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Virginia, New York, Michigan, Colorado, Washington, Illinois, and Texas.
4. How long does it take to heal?
This depends on a few factors like the complexity of your case, the sensitivity of your body, the length of time you’ve dealt with your symptoms, and your devotion to the treatment plan. Generally, the program will take 6 to 12 months, but most patients start feeling more stable within the first 2 months.
5. How much does it cost?
NeuroEndoMetabolic Nutritional Program is for anybody who wants to embrace wellness. It is not just for the wealthy as normal working class people are the majority of our patients. Not all cases are accepted because we want to help patients who are motivated to improve their health. Price depends on the complexity of your case, the amount of lab testing needed, the frequency of follow up visits, and individualized therapy plans for each person that includes the combination of nutraceuticals and medication titration. We would like to make NEM Nutritional Program affordable to most people as we understand the need is great.
6. How can I learn if I am a good candidate for NeuroEndoMetabolic Nutritional Program?
The best way to find out if you are a good fit is to schedule a free initial health evaluation with Dr. Carrie Lam, MD where she will be able to learn more about your goals and needs and determine which NeuroEndoMetabolic circuit has a dysfunction and needs nutritional therapy.
