Together we will review your lifestyle, labs & symptoms. Followed by a series of labs, microbiome (stool) tests and analysis. Together we will create a treatment plan for you that includes in-office and at-home work to accelerate your healing.

Thyroid Disease

Your thyroid gland stores and produces hormones that regulate bodily growth and metabolism. However, some people may experience an underactive thyroid, commonly referred to as hypothyroidism. This condition can cause a number of unwanted symptoms such as low libido, ED, weight gain, chronic fatigue, and insomnia. 

Chronic Fatigue

Chronic Fatigue, also known as myalgic encephalomyelitis, is a complex illness that develops gradually and is characterized by at least six months of extreme fatigue that is not relieved by rest. There can be numerous contributors such as an Epstein-Barr infection, vitamin deficiencies, gut dysbiosis or mitochondrial dysfunction.

Adrenal Dysfunction

Adrenal Fatigue is found after prolonged stress is placed on the adrenal glands. A 4 point cortisol curve discover issues within your adrenal gland. A treatment plan including lifestyle changes, and quality supplements will be used to support the adrenal glands. 

Find your balance, energy & happiness a more natural way.
