COMMON HORMONE IMBALANCE CONDITIONS WE TREAT
Hormones are the chemicals that tell your organs what to do so your body can function as it should. However, if it starts producing too much or too little, it can cause problems that seriously impact your quality of life. We can help restore your health so you remember what it is to feel great.
There are about 50 different hormones working inside the human body. They regulate things like appetite, metabolism, temperature, sleep cycles, reproductive cycles, mood, and more.
Hormone imbalances can explain a lot of seemingly unrelated symptoms. Clues may include things like suddenly gaining or losing weight, experiencing fatigue and muscle weakness, feeling tenderness or stiffness, or feeling your heart rate change. When you choose a functional medicine approach, we will work with you to figure out if your hormones are doing what they should and why they are out of balance. Our goal is to help your body return to normal.
We’re not here to put a band-aid on the problem, we’re 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.

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.

I am so thankful for the guidance from the Thriven team and the other practice members who have given me so much knowledge and the tools to continue my healing process. I honestly feel that my quality of life will be improved because of the changes that I’ve been taught through the program.
I have received not only information to stay healthy, but the coaching and encouragement from the staff was exactly what I needed. Getting to the “root” of problems leads the way to better health and sustainability. I believe my health is better for the wisdom of Dr. Loy, and her search for each one of us in better health. It’s all about choices for each one. My thanks for this team of people!
