Treating Inflammation and Auto Immune Disease

Inflammation is a normal response of your immune system to any sort of threat or invader. Left unchecked however, it leads to most chronic diseases, including autoimmune. It can also generate a huge list of seemingly unrelated symptoms that will significantly affect or reduce the quality of your life.

If you’ve already tried a traditional treatment approach, you’ll very likely have been prescribed medication to suppress your immune system and mask the symptoms. However, as you probably already know, this can lead to a host of other issues. When you choose a functional medicine approach, we will work with you to identify the triggers, help you reverse the inflammation, and finally start healing your body.

We’re not interested in short term fixes or band aids. We are here to help you live a healthy and happy life for many years to come. It’s time to take control and start living the life you want.

Let's Get Started

Our main office is in Great Falls, Montana, but we are able to work with individuals nationally and internationally thanks to HIPAA compliant telehealth.

Telehealth — sometimes called telemedicine — lets you visit your doctor and receive care without an in-person office visit. Telehealth is done primarily online with internet access on your computer, tablet, or smartphone through video conferences and internet phone calls. This remote option is ideal for people who live in remote areas, or need consultation with a specialist whose office is an unreasonable or burdensome distance away. If you have internet access, we can help.

The sooner you start the journey, the more time you'll be able to enjoy.
