WHOLE-BODY APPROACH TO HEALING 

Functional Medicine is all about thinking and linking your systems together instead of blaming and taming. Whether it’s diet, lifestyle modifications, supplements or other modalities, you need a plan that is designed for your specific needs, not a one-size fits all drug or dietary plan.

Thyroid Dysfunction, Dr. Ben Galyardt, Functional Medicine Doctor, Alternative Medicine Practitioner, Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins

Thyroid Dysfunction

Solving your thyroid dysfunction is much more in depth than just checking TSH and taking thyroid medication. It takes a deep understanding of thyroid physiology as well as understanding the autoimmune component to thyroid dysfunction. Taking a step back and looking at the body as a whole is a crucial part of eliminating thyroid symptoms.

ADD/ADHD, Dr. Ben Galyardt, Functional Medicine Doctor, Alternative Medicine Practitioner, Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins

ADD / ADHD

Attention Deficit Disorder encompasses a wide range of symptoms including impulsive or inattentive behavior, as well as being easily distracted. The idea that these symptoms arise from laziness or a psychological disorder is a misnomer. The problem is a brain imbalance and can be treated by utilizing neurofeedback. Unlike medication, neurofeedback trains the brain, resulting in significant improvement in ADHD/ADD symptoms. With neurofeedback, people can increase self-control and attention.

our Latest SUCCESS STORY

This is by far the best medical center that I have ever been to! In the course of 13 months, I had strep throat 11 times (without tonsils), and also horrible psoriasis. I had gone to numerous doctors, an immunologist, a rheumatologist, and an ENT. The ENT actually ended up performing surgery on my sinuses, however I got strep throat 3 times after the surgery. I was feeling quite hopeless, but a friend on mine suggested Dr. G and the staff at the Functional Medicine Center. Dr. G, Shonna, and the rest of the staff took tremendous care of me. They listened to all of my symptoms, and created a personalized wellness plan for me. Shonna, the Functional Medicine Nutritionist, helped me to understand food, how it works in the body, and how there is NO one size fits all meal plan for anyone. Dr. G and Shonna created the perfect routine of supplements, cleanses, therapies, and nutrition plan to fix me, and bring my body back to where it should be. I started seeing them in December of 2017, and haven’t had strep throat or psoriasis outbreaks since then. These individuals truly saved my life, and I honestly don’t know where I’d be today without them.
