Treating Thyroid and Adrenal Disorders

Thyroid and adrenal disorders often fly under the radar, and get either misdiagnosed or missed entirely. This leaves many people wondering why they keep being told “Everything is normal/fine,” yet they feel anything but! This is great news, because when you discover what is really going on, you can finally start feeling like yourself again.

Both the thyroid and the adrenals are part of the endocrine system, or glands that secrete hormones. These hormones have a variety of key roles in regulating everything from your energy, your metabolism, your weight, to your ability to handle and respond to stress.

The key with any hormone related problems is to recognize that they are all interconnected, and you must have just the right balance to feel your best. That is why functional medicine is so powerful, we help you connect all the pieces.

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.
