I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis five years ago. Besides the typical symptoms of weight gain and fatigue, I also started having anxiety, panic attacks, vertigo and palpitations to the point where everyday tasks became difficult if not impossible to get done. I knew I needed to find someone that would take the time to figure out what was going on. I found Vine Healthcare and met with Dr. Scott in January 2018. I followed the plan he laid out and after only a few days noticed a difference. In the eight weeks since I started, I have not had a panic attack, vertigo, palpitations or anxiety. My energy level is slowly increasing and my weight is starting to come off. Dr. Scott listened to my history and figured out the plan to get me healthy. I highly recommend Dr. Scott and the team at Vine Healthcare.
Vine Healthcare, LLC offers personalized, comprehensive, medical care geared at restoring and maximizing optimal health by utilizing the Functional and Integrative Medicine models.
What We Do
We perform an extremely detailed analysis of your health history from the prenatal period (if known) to the present day, focusing on significant diet, lifestyle, or environmental factors as well as genetics which have affected your health. This includes analysis of the effects of stress, physical trauma, family history, industrial toxins, infections, and food/medication intake. A thorough physical examination will be performed to gather additional important information. We then design a personalized healthcare program structured to restore you to optimum health.
What is Functional Medicine?
Functional Medicine is personalized medicine. It is a holistic, supportive, patient-doctor partnership approach to healthcare. It is also a science based approached to healing. Our bodies and their organ systems are masterpieces of design. The intricate functions of these systems and the interrelationships as a whole are awesome to consider.
As Functional/Integrative Medicine practitioners, we consider the ‘vine’-like connectedness of interactions that occur along nutritional, digestive, detoxification, energy metabolism, hormonal, structural, and immune/inflammatory pathways. We have a very different approach to your health than that of traditional medicine, as we look to treat ‘root’ causes of disease.

I love Dr. Antoine. Her assessment and guidance have been immeasurably helpful to me. If you’re dealing with autoimmune diseases and chronic fatigue or pain – you may want to investigate functional medicine options or call her office and make an appointment.Karen R.
I found Vine Healthcare at a critical time in my life. I developed a form of inflammatory bowel in college after my freshmen year when I was constantly on antibiotics, eating processed food, and continually stressed.Liz Light
Dr. Ellen has given me my life back. I can’t thank her enough for giving me all the tools for healing my body. She is truly a lifesaver and cares about her patients. God put her in my life for a special reason and I am eternally grateful. Not a day goes by that I don’t smile when I realize how far I’ve come, and realize Vine Healthcare got me there. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. The staff here is off the charts amazing too, I’ve never been anywhere like this. They care! If you are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, you’ve got to go here. You won’t regret getting your life back and feeling wonderful.Charity White Barton
Dr. Ellen Antoine introduced me to PEMF when I was having challenges recovering from foot surgery. I noticed a difference from the very first treatment! My nerve pain went away; circulation, flexibility and range of motion in my foot also dramatically improved. The incisions that were directly treated with the PEMF probe also faded considerably. After treatments I am more relaxed, have more energy and I sleep better at night. My experience is that PEMF is great for addressing a wide range of conditions and I highly recommend it!Julia M.
I first stepped into Dr. Ellen Antoine’s office back in 2014 with so many issues that no other specialist could cure, that I thought I was destined to live a compromised quality of life. Quite the contrary, due to Dr. Ellen’s relentless and innovative approach she quickly discovered the root cause of my issues and I now feel better physically and cognitively than I did in my 20’s! I was treated with such compassion by the entire office that every time I visit I feel like I am visiting family. I am thankful every day that Dr. Ellen is in my life!!!Lori D.
- When I reached out to Doctor Scott (Antoine), about a year ago, I felt I was out of “runway”. I have fought anxiety and depression for almost 25 years. However, after the loss of my wife, the anxiety and depression became unbearable. I knew I could not live feeling this way for the rest of my life. I had tried all the mainstream medications, and frankly I just felt worse to even mentally numb. I will admit, I was skeptical of Vine. My western mental model of medicine said, “This can’t work”. However, I was out of “runway”. I took a leap of faith and prayed for healing that I desperately sought.To be clear, you must look at what Dr. Scott offers as a journey, not a destination. It isn’t necessarily easy, and you will have to “gotta” want it. I had no choices left. This isn’t about taking a pill and you can just move on happy living life as you did. This is about taking a journey of discovery into your mind, body, and spirit. Discovering how to take care of this wonderful body we have all been given. Owning your health and your happiness. It will take time, experimentation and yes, setbacks. However, the results for me have been more then I could have ever tought possible. I have found my smile and mental peace.If you seek long term physical health, mental clarity and peace, you must commit to owning your health first. Vine will be with you every step of the way.They were for me.Matthew H.
I found Vine Healthcare at a critical time in my life. I developed a form of inflammatory bowel in college after my freshmen year when I was constantly on antibiotics, eating processed food, and continually stressed. When I went to my general doctor, I was sent away with steroids that kept my condition under control for a little while, but caused some not so friendly side effects. I continued to take the steroids on and off for several years until they stopped working completely. At that point, I decided to take my health into my own hands and started to research alternative medicine. I decided that I wanted to find a doctor that actually healed the body rather than cover up my symptoms with a pill. After reading a little bit about what Vine Healthcare believed, I knew it was the perfect place to go.
During my first meeting with Dr. Scott Antoine, my husband and I were blown away by his knowledge of healing the body. It was clear that he is passionate about what he does and therefore, researches and stay up to date on the latest medical findings. He took the entire history of my life into consideration when finding the best route to address my condition, which is something I never had when dealing with other doctors. They had me on a regimen that addressed my condition from all angles including, nutrition, detoxification, and supplementation. We continued to be blown away after meeting with the health coach, Nedra Hiday. She is an expert on using food as medicine and lead me on a nutritional journey that started to repair my body and improve my symptoms after two weeks!
I am so grateful that I was lead to Vine Healthcare and that doctors like this exist. I can’t thank them enough for what they have done. Currently, 100% of my symptoms are gone, I am full of energy, and happy! I forgot what it was like to feel this good. I owe it all to the amazing doctors and staff at Vine!!Liz Light
“I have been a migraine sufferer for over 30 years and I have been to every kind of doctor you can imagine. Dr. Antoine is the type of doctor I have been looking for all these years. She took the time to ask me questions and to listen to my answers. She not only came up with a reasonable treatment plan, she did so quickly and concisely, giving me clear instruction on how to carry out the treatment plan. Dr. Antoine is also caring & compassionate and her love for the LORD shows in the way she treats and loves her patients.”Marisa
“Ellen is an amazing doctor. She is thorough, caring and very knowledgeable in her field. I would recommend her to my closest friends and family. She not only goes above and beyond her job, but she genuinely cares about her patients and longs to see them recover and heal. Blessings!!”Susan and Scott
“Dr. Antoine, I can’t tell you what a tremendous blessing you have been in my life during this very difficult time with my health. You have been the body of Christ to me during this healing process. Your passion and care for the individual always shines through. Thank you!”T.H.
“I simply cannot say enough about Dr. Antoine’s care. Her combination of both functional medicine and traditional medicine was the catalyst to my achievement of total wellness. In addition, her intuitive care and overall genuine compassion for her patients are qualities I find not only incredibly necessary in this field, but also quite rare in today’s impersonal society.”A.
