An autoimmune thyroid disorder involves our immune system attacking our own thyroid tissue, which leads to abnormal thyroid hormone production. This then leads to symptoms associated with an underactive or overactive thyroid.
We find that these antibody tests are often not tested for, despite the prevalence of autoimmune thyroid disorders being estimated at 1-2% of the general population. Our team screens for these important autoimmune markers, and if present, we help you figure out WHY the immune system is attacking your thyroid tissue, and address that.
Psoriasis is a skin condition that causes itchy, scaly patches that often involve the scalp, ears, elbows, and knees. Some people can even have associated nail changes and joint pain and swelling.
As with many other skin conditions, it is important to consider more of an "inside-out" approach, and unless a comprehensive testing approach is considered, it's unlikely that a root cause will be identified. On the treatment side, some important aspects include addressing systemic inflammation, optimizing gut and liver health, and constructing a personalized nutrition plan to avoid any potential food triggers.
Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands and it is an essential hormone that has a role in our body's stress response, but is also involved in our metabolism and sleep cycles, our blood sugar regulation, and our immune system.
There are normal variations of cortisol levels throughout the day, and seeing the pattern can give us clues as to how your day to day decisions and stress levels are impacting resiliency. Incredibly, we see that these patterns impact our gut health, our thyroid health, and our sex hormones. Once we know your body's response pattern, we can then create a plan around lifestyle, nutrition, and supplement (i.e. adaptogen) changes.
The area of male/female sex hormones is complicated. Unfortunately, people often have a single blood sample that looks at a few lab tests at a single point in time, and then a plan is created based off that result. What is more important is to understand how hormones are created (what are the building blocks involved), how are they metabolized (liver function, aromatase/5-alpha-reductase, methylation, etc.), and how are they excreted (gut health).
We are all unique, and you deserve a plan that takes your symptoms into account and gathers the right amount of information, to know exactly how to plan for progress.
We dedicate time to understanding your genetics, history, lifestyle, and goals. Combined with advanced lab tests other doctors don’t run, you get new, in-depth information about the root causes of your potential hormone imbalances, and an integrative program to address it.
We use advanced lab tests, data, and tools to build a detailed evaluation of your hormone health to create a personalized plan targeting the root cause & risks.
Diet, lifestyle & exercise, family history, prior personal history, smoking and drinking history, occupational exposure, previous labs, and medical history, as well as known genetic predispositions.

We see treatment as a balance of many different factors and strive to help you build sustainable habits that incorporate nutrition balance, lifestyle choices, and supplements when necessary.
The lab & screening results show us specific nutrient deficiencies that need to be targeted, current inflammation levels, & how to optimize the link between gut health and hormone health. All to get to the root cause of your hormone issues.
While all diet plans are personalized, we may use a combination of cardio-metabolic food plans, autoimmune Paleo diet, low histamine, oxalate, sulfur, and salicylate plans, herbal treatments, or a mito food plan.
Enjoyable forms of movement, stress management, sleep tracking (Oura Ring, Woop, and others), therapy, mental & emotional care.
