A Holistic, Yet Scientific Approach to Medicine
Our goal is treat as naturally and in the least invasive manner possible.
Post Infection Care
COVID, Lyme disease, and mold exposure can all lead to inflammation and imbalances in other chemicals throughout the body, resulting in long-term clinical complaints.
We take a multi-system approach, testing markers in the immune, nervous, and hormone systems to develop a comprehensive, personalized plan to restore balance in the body for symptom relief.
Natural Hormone Replacement Therapies
We offer a holistic approach to women's health concerns including symptoms associated with PCOS, PMS, and menopause. At Natural Medicine of Stillwater, we assess the multiple systems involved in clinical presentation before creating a personalized treatment plan. Bio-identical hormone replacement therapies are available if needed.
It is estimated 1% of the population has diagnosed hypothyroidism, but up to 8% suffer from sub-clinical hypothyroid. We measure thyroid hormones to identify low and sub-clinical thyroid levels.
Desiccant Thyroid vs. Synthetic Thyroid Treatments
Synthetic thyroid consists of either T4 or T3, but not both. Most people are prescribed Synthetic T4 but still suffer from symptoms because they are unable to convert the inactive T4 to active T3.
Natural, or desiccant, thyroid contains both T4 and T3 in addition to thyroid co-factors to support healthy thyroid levels. Desiccant thyroid uses thyroid USP, which is derived from USDA pigs.
80% of our patients do better on desiccant thyroid than synthetic.
Associated Thyroid Conditions
Thyroid activity impacts other body systems. Additional testing and treatments may be recommended to fully address symptoms. Additional areas affected by thyroid imbalances include:
Nervous system health
Because peptides occur naturally in the body, they are well tolerated.
Peptide BPC-157 helps with healing of tendon, muscle, nervous system and ligament tissues. Patient experiencing discomfort from sprains, tears, and tissue damage may benefit from it. BPC-157 may also help to protect organs, prevent stomach ulcers, and heal skin burns.
1-month acute (injection)
3-month injection/oral program from musculoskeletal or GI issues
The weight loss peptide program utilizes Tirzepatide. This peptide acts on centers in the brain and suppresses appetite to help patients adhere to a reduced-calorie diet. It lowers HbA1c in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus as well as reduces body weight after 40 weeks.
Available as a 3 and 6-month therapy. Learn more
The Delta Sleep Inducing Peptide may make it easier to fall asleep. It may also enhance serotonin and dopamine, brain chemicals important for mood.
IV Nutrition & Shots
No prescription required. Must be a patient or have a referral.
Boost energy. Increase clarity. Enhance mood. B12 shots are quick and 100% absorbed compared to oral B12, which is not well absorbed.
Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) B Complex Shot
Also known as lipo injections, MIC shots help release fat and boost methylation and metabolism throughout the body.
Myers IV Drips
The Myers Cocktail includes vitamins and minerals and is administered directly into the bloodstream. This method is especially helpful in cases of poor digestion or nutrient absorption, intestinal or chronic inflammation, or poor detoxification . Requires 45-90 minutes to administer.
High-Dose Vitamin C Drips
IV delivery allows higher concentrations of vitamin C to be administered than can be taken orally. A blood test is required to determine tolerance and multiple visits may be needed to reach maximum dose. IV vitamin C can be safely administered during chemo and radiation.
Most insurance companies will cover advance cardiovascular risk assessment testing...no matter your deductible or provider's network status
Natural Medicine of Stillwater uses a number of specialty cardiovascular labs to assess your cardiovascular risk. This testing is much more detailed than the typical fasting lipid test common in conventional health care. Testing
indicates possible interventions to reduce your cardiac risks as well as if you are a poor candidate for statin therapy .
Using the test results, we can identify the most efficient natural treatments to control lipid levels and reduce overall cardiac risk. We are very effective at providing alternatives to statin therapy.
Direct lipid measurements (not indirect measurements often run through managed care)
- Prediabetes assessment
- cTnI (cardiac troponin I): released when your heart muscle is stressed
Complementary Lyme Disease Therapies
Tick-Borne Disease Testing
Lyme disease- There is no perfect Lyme disease test. Therefore, at Natural Medicine of Stillwater, we offer both conventional, two-tier CDC and specialty testing for Lyme.
Powassan virus or Deer tick virus (DTV)
Post-Lyme Disease Syndrome
Lyme disease is a chronic inflammatory state. The long-term stress on the body can lead to imbalances in multiple body systems and activation of genetic predispositions. Common symptoms of post-Lyme include:
We offer genetic, nervous system, and hormone tests to determine the impact Lyme disease had on your body systems in order to create a personalized treatment for your unique situation.
Lyme and Post-Lyme Disease Treatments
At Natural Medicine of Stillwater, we specialize in complementary and alternative support for Lyme and post-Lyme disease. Treatments are personalized based on test results.
Note: Our staff prescriber will not assume the role of primary antibiotic prescriber, except in cases of acute infection or minor relapse. Complementary and supportive prescriptions are available. Care can be coordinated with other members of your health care team.
Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO)
What is SIBO?
Small Intestine Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO) occurs when bacteria that normally live in your large intestine migrate to your small intestine. Overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine:
Interrupts its primary functions; nutrient absorption and immune regulation
Produces hydrogen and methane gases
Increases ammonia and other toxic chemicals that disrupt liver health and hormone detoxing
When these gasses are in your small intestine, they can cause a multitude of problems and symptoms. Studies have indicated that potentially up to 80% of patients with IBS have SIBO. A Hydrogen/Methane Breath test can easily and non-invasively help determine if SIBO is present.
Who Should get Tested for SIBO?
Breath testing may be be indicated if you experience any of these symptoms:
Gas, bloating, reflux or heartburn
Constipation or diarrhea
Digestive disturbance after a stomach flu or food poisoning, antibiotics, pain killers or stomach acid-reducing drugs (may also be worse from probiotics, fiber, certain fruit/veggies or whole-foods)
Skin problems (Acne, psoriasis, rosacea, etc.)
Body pain or fibromyalgia
Brain fog or fatigue
Iron deficiency or gut symptoms when taking iron supplements
Cognitive dysfunction (memory, concentration/brain fog)
Neurological disorders including Parkinson’s Disease
Treatment resistant insomnia and anxiety
Conventional Test Examples
Specialty Test Examples
Non-invasive, urinary neurotransmitter testing (nervous system)
Serum, saliva, and urine sex hormone testing
Salivary adrenal hormone testing
Non-invasive breath testing for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth
24-hour urine hormones
IgG food sensitivites
Specialty Lyme disease and co-infection testing
Holistic Approach to Autoimmune
Natural Medicine of Stillwater takes a holistic, comprehensive approach to assessing and addressing autoimmune disorders. Our approach considers not only the autoimmune condition but it's impact on other systems in your body. This multi-system approach allows you to live the best life possible by minimizing the effects of an over-active immune response on the rest of the body.
For instance, in cases of Celiac Disease, Crohn's Disease, and ulcerative colitis, we may also consider testing for small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), assessing the brain-gut connection, or checking for hormonal imbalances resulting from elevated immune activity.
The following tests may be recommended as part of a holistic approach:
SIBO breath test
Urinary neurotransmitter tests
