Functional Medicine determines how and why illness occurs and restores health by addressing the root causes of disease for each individual.

"The Functional Medicine model is an individualized, patient-centered, science-based approach that empowers patients and practitioners to work together to address the underlying causes of disease and promote optimal wellness. It requires a detailed understanding of each patient’s genetic, biochemical, and lifestyle factors and leverages that data to direct personalized treatment plans that lead to improved patient outcomes"

Are YOU On Synthetic Thyroid Medications And Still Suffering? 
Weight Loss Resistance | Fatigue | Thinning Hair | Headaches | Constipation
Get To The ROOT CAUSE Of The Problem!!
Sensitivities | Deficiencies | Toxicities 
Are You Struggling With?
  • ​Weight Loss Resitance
  • ​Fatigue
  •  Morning Headaches
  •  Depression
  •  Constipation
  •  Sensitivity To Cold Weather 
  •  Dry or Brittle Hair
  •  Thinning Hair
  •  Itchy Dry Skin
  •  Chronic Digestive Problems
Are You On Synthetic Thyroid Medications And STILL Experiencing The Above Symptoms?
Then It's Time To Dig And Fix The ROOT CAUSE!
Upwards Of 50% Of Low Thyroid Challenges Are AUTOIMMUNE In Nature (Hashimoto's)!
However, MOST doctors ignore or don't test the immune system component! They simply put you on synthetic thyroid medications (FOR LIFE).

Meanwhile, you still may be suffering from low thyroid symptoms (hair loss, fatigue, weight loss resistance etc.)...because the ROOT CAUSE was never fixed! 

You MUST test to determine what "path" to go down! 

The thyroid path OR the autoimmune path! The treatments are vastly different! 

Most medical doctors will check TSH, T3, T4 etc...all that is fine and well, however MOST don't check for thyroid antibodies. WHY? Because their treatment plan won't change. It's a medication and let's see you in 6 months! 

This is a very poor medical approach and leaves people feeling miserable! 
Our Approach Is Unique & Different!
We Don't Guess...We Test!
Let's say, for example, you ARE one of the 50% who has the autoimmune thyroid (Hashimoto's)...

We MUST address and take the stress off the IMMUNE SYSTEM! We do that via food testing! You see, your immune systems reacts to ALL foods you consume. Some good. Some not so good! But we test roughly 100 foods to determine exactly how your immune system reacts...and we provide you with an acceptable "master food list" that your immune system likes! 

Make sense? 
Above is an example food test report (graph) so we know exactly what foods to remove, for how long, and how to re-introduce! 

By "Food Testing" you are: 
  • ​Reducing Overall INFLAMMATION
  • ​Giving The IMMUNE SYSTEM a Break
  • ​Giving The DIGESTIVE SYSTEM a Break
We may also test for nutrient deficiencies. Research also shows a correlation between deficiencies and thyroid dysfunction. 

The key thing to understand is this. We don't just "mask the symptom" with a drug that you'll be on forever. We do some simple testing (in-office) that tell us A LOT of information about how you're FUNCTIONING. From there we can develop a NATURAL plan of attack! 

We manage many cases of thyroid dysfunction without Synthroid
Applied Kinesiology Finds the Root Cause
Applied Kinesiology also addresses the structural components (which are sorely missed by standard medical care) related to thyroid dysfunction. Structural components are addressed via manual muscle testing and other physical exam procedures including spinal subluxation (nerve flow to thyroid), neurovascular (blood to thyroid), neurolymphatic (lymph flow to thyroid) reflexes, cerebrospinal fluid, and acupuncture meridian system as they relate to thyroid function.

For example:
Subluxation of sphenoid bone affecting the function of the pituitary gland and its stalk as it sits in the sella turcica or the '"saddle" of the sphenoid bone can cause dysfunction in the signaling to the thyroid gland. Manual techniques involving cranial bone movement can be effective in these situations, and in some may be the primary mover in resolution of the problem.
