Who We Serve
“It is far more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has.” – Hippocrates
Types of Treatment
Conventional modern medical approaches prescribe treatments based on the study of groups, aggregates and averages. At The Linné Institute of Medicine, all treatments offered are customized to you in particular, NOT just to humans with your type of symptoms in general. Our prescriptions and are based on an in-depth understanding of your physiology informed by mathematical modeling performed on the results of your blood tests.
Custom-made, in-house blends of various medicinal plants and fungi to best match you and your physiology in particular, NOT just some generic blend to address someone with your symptoms in general. These treatments address most of the fundamental imbalances at the physical, mental and emotional levels.
Diet isn’t just about what and how much we consume. It is also about how you consume, when you consume and why you consume certain foods. At The Linné Institute of Medicine, we don’t believe in a “one-size-fits-most” approach to anything—even diet. We believe all diets have merit and value but only when applied to the right physiology, be it vegan, vegetarian, pescatarian, paleo, keto, Mediterranean, or some other diet. In addition, abstinence from food through time restricted eating and/or periodic fasting can have profound value for your health. Based on the mathematical modeling of your blood work, we can make dietary recommendations based NOT on popular culture, but based on your physiology.
When necessary, pharmaceuticals are used, but at the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration possible in order to quickly stabilize with minimal side effects. When appropriate, efforts are made to wean patients off of medications in a safe manner as their bodies become better regulated.
Most patients will benefit from lifestyle recommendations specific to them. These recommendations will be tailored to your particular needs based on the mathematical modeling data performed on your blood work. For example, some may need guidance in sleep hygiene and rhythmic living. Others may be particularly sensitive to manmade EMF and may benefit from strategies to mitigate the downsides of living in our high-tech world. Some may need guidance on ways to “lean into” increasing levels of discomfort and what that means for their physiologic remodeling. For some we may emphasize yoga, meditation, breath work, or sauna. For other patients we may emphasize the need for improved cardiovascular or weight training.
A health-conscience person could potentially spend all day, every day trying to implement every good health practice in their lives. There is no shortage of advice available in this area. But such an approach to life is simply not practical and potentially harmful in that it can be isolating and can leave a person feeling “burned-out” physically, mentally, and emotionally. At The Linné Institute of Medicine you will be guided toward a flourishing state of balance in body, mind and spirit by finding the treatment plan best suited for you.

What Does Treatment Look Like?
When you become a patient, you can have a consultation only (plus follow up visits as needed), or you can enroll in a membership plan. While there can be advantages to enrolling in one of our membership plans, the membership structure may not be a good fit for some patients. Memberships include the price of lab tests and follow up visits, and are helpful for people who want to better predict the monthly price of their care, as it effectively spreads the cost of your care over the course of a year as a monthly payment with no interest.
Dr. Johnson offered an entirely new approach to addressing my health and wellbeing. While many of his botanical interventions were new to my traditional medicine background, his explanation of the action and intention of each suggestion was clear, extensively researched, and focused on the nuances of my system as a whole.
I used to need an albuterol inhaler before high intensity intervals and before races, but now I don’t. My seasonal allergies (which used to be so bad that I needed allergy shots) are now so minimal that I don’t take any allergy medications at all.
I have never felt so cared for, or such compassion, from a doctor in my life. Dr. Johnson’s deliberateness and investment in my overall health has been profound.
I became increasingly unfamiliar to myself, with mounting anxiety, irritability, brain fog, and growing isolation. Dr. Johnson offered an entirely new approach to addressing my health and wellbeing.
