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

Women's Health

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.

Thyroid Health

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:

  • Adrenal health

  • Nervous system health

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

  • Abdominal pain

  • Constipation or diarrhea

  • Unexplained malabsorption

  • 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

Laboratory Testing

Conventional Test Examples

  • Thyroid panels

  • Hormones

Specialty Test Examples

Autoimmune Disorders

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.

Autoimmune Therapies

  • Low-dose naltrexone

  • Peptides

Holistic Assessments

The following tests may be recommended as part of a holistic approach:

  • SIBO breath test

  • Urinary neurotransmitter tests

  • Hormone tests
