Dr. Clifford Fetters is an experienced physician at Health and Wellness of Carmel who specializes in the field of personal life healthcare.
Dr. Clifford Fetters specializes in personal life healthcare for both children and adults. His unique focus is integrating the latest discoveries in science with a practical application of functional medicine, nutrition, natural, and energy medicine. His ultimate goal is to guide his clients on a path to ultimate wellness without the use of prescription drugs.
Dr. Fetters grew up in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Indiana State University. He then completed his family practice residency at Fort Wayne Medical Education. He moved to Carmel, Indiana and started practicing traditional medicine. He was with Family Physicians of Carmel for nearly two decades. He took over the practice from senior partner, Dr. Terry Frederick. Dr. Fetters has never forgotten his parting words: “Prescription drugs are poison, use them wisely, use them sparingly, and always try to find a better way.” It was not many months into practice before Dr. Fetters learned what his esteemed colleague was referring to … many medical conditions and diseases were being treated by prescription drugs without regard to the science and biology taught in undergraduate training and medical school. Teenage acne and postmenopausal women were being treated with birth control pills.
Type II diabetics were being treated with insulin, and asthmatic patients were being treated with long-term steroids. His burning desire was to treat all chronic illnesses and conditions by correcting the underlying physiology and use prescription drugs only for the acute illnesses for which they were intended. In 1989, Dr. Fetters was instrumental in treating postmenopausal women with bioidentical hormones. He organized a movement to encourage insurance companies to pay for hormone blood levels. In the early 1990s, Dr. Fetters pioneered an intense screening and treatment program for insulin resistance that resulted in the near elimination of diabetes from his practice. His extensive research through conferences, journals, books, and face-to-face interactions with thought leaders in functional medicine has allowed him to develop treatment programs for virtually all chronic conditions and symptoms that afflict Western civilization.
In 2006, Dr. Fetters started Health and Wellness of Carmel to fulfill his dream of providing holistic, functional medicine for the Midwest. It has become a nationally recognized center of excellence where medical doctors, osteopaths, and naturopaths combine their talents to provide individualized health plans to treat complex medical illnesses, as well as providing expertise in achieving and maintaining optimal wellness.
