Paths at Sanctuary to Living a Healthier More Abundant Life

Our team, led by Dr. Eric Potter Functional MD, restores patients from our home base in Franklin, Tennessee.  Our comprehensive treatment program stretches from next door to across the nation as we provide personalized care to the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of each patient God sends our way.
Comprehensive Health Treatment Program
We specialize in helping you get an understanding of the root causes of your health situation. Our Comprehensive Health Treatment Program is an extensive, 6 month program consisting of visits with our team including: Dr. Potter, our Physician Assistant, our Nutritionist, nursing staff and the care of our entire team. We utilize secure messaging technology to manage your care each step of the way. We search for the root causes of your suffering and walk you through a restoration program.
IV Therapy
Sanctuary Functional Medicine provides full fledged nutritional IV therapy programs.  As part of our Comprehensive Treatment Program, we have Registered Nurses for IV administration.  We offer a variety of therapies such as Meyers B Vitamins, Vitamin C, Mineral infusions, anti-viral infusions, amino acid therapies and more.
For patients who cannot travel to our office, we offer consultations by phone and video chat. After the initial visit, we can direct your care by phone and secure e-mail for one year. Patients in Tennessee, Virginia, Kentucky, and Minnesota can begin care without a face-to-face initial visit with Dr. Potter. Second opinions and a review of your condition are offered for patients in other states.
DNA Analysis
If you have received a 23andMe report only to find the alphabet soup of SNPs confusing, you will find our DNA analysis a welcome genetic kitchen chef. Many call us just wanting someone to explain what their report means but don’t need our six month consult. For you, we have a single visit that includes reviewing your history, a functional physical, and a 30-40 minute 23andMe counseling session with Dr. Potter. Call Steven and ask about this DNA Analysis Package.

Patient Testimonials

We have helped hundreds of patients. See what they have to say about Dr. Potter, our Comprehensive Treatment Program, and Sanctuary Functional Medicine.

“In February of 2015, I started seeing Dr. Potter. My health history is long and involved, but Dr. Potter spent about THREE HOURS at my initial new patient visit getting a thorough understanding of it! In thirty years of going to doctors to resolve my health issues, that has never happened.” – D.B. Spring Hill, TN
