Evolutionary Personalized Functional Medicine that works with you
COMMONLY TREATED CONDITIONS
Your overall health often revolves around the health of your gastrointestinal tract – your gut. How well do the muscles in the gut move food through your digestive tract?
How well do you absorb nutrients? Hormone imbalances or your diet may interfere with proper functioning. We test for all of this to find solutions to your immediate gastrointestinal issues as well as health problems elsewhere in your body.

Autoimmune and Arthritis
The immune system is like the porridge in the story of the three bears. When it’s just right, all is good. When it’s too cold, you’re susceptible to infections. When it’s too hot, it goes to war with your body, causing autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, psoriasis, lupus or celiac disease.
We often serve a collaborative role for patients who are taking pharmaceuticals to control an autoimmune disorder and hope to reduce or eliminate their need for them over time. Dr. Ballehr will also explore with you the effects of stress in triggering these disorders.
Diabetes and Metabolic Disorders
The increase in Type 2 diabetes is one of the great challenges of modern medicine. Wouldn’t it make more sense to prevent the disease than to spend billions treating it? Lab work often contains red flag warnings that someone is susceptible to developing diabetes. Dr. Ballehr will work with patients to alter their metabolism through diet, exercise, supplements and possibly medication, to prevent diabetes and all its complications.
Thyroid and Hormone Imbalances
Cognitive Decline & Neurodegenerative Disorders
Toxins flow through our body daily. The body has the ability to cleanse itself, but when natural and manmade toxins overwhelm the liver and kidneys, the result is often fatigue, anxiety, muscle and joint aches, decreased concentration, or headaches. A high toxic burden may also contribute to the onset of a chronic inflammation disease or disorder.
The liver is the lead organ in eliminating toxins. To work properly, it needs a diet rich in vitamins and antioxidants – a combination often missing in a high-sugar, high-calorie American diet. We help you find the right lifestyle and diet to reduce the amount of toxins entering your body and to support your liver and kidneys in doing their jobs of processing and eliminating the toxins.
