Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement

We offer comprehensive, state-of-the-art  hormone testing and evaluation for men and women.  As part of our evaluation, we use blood, saliva, and urine testing according to what is the most effective for the chosen hormone.  Hormones evaluated  may include, but are not limited to the following: Estrogen, Progesterone, Testosterone, DHEA, Thyroid hormones, Cortisol, Melatonin, Prohormone Vitamin D, Pregnenolone, as well as metabolites of hormones.  Treatment is always based on individualized biochemistry and only used if indicated with safety and optimal balance in mind.

  

Breast Thermography/Infrared Digital Breast Imaging

Breast thermography is safe, highly effective, and noninvasive infrared imaging of the breasts and is the latest advance in breast cancer prevention.  It offers the earliest detection of breast cancer available!  We are proud to offer this service at Utah Natural Medicine and recommend that all women get this procedure as a baseline in their 20s or 30s.  Early detection is the key to successful treatment and this makes thermography a necessary step in any woman's health program.  It is best if used in conjunction with mammography, and should not be a substitute for it.  It is different than mammography, which uses radiation to detect tumors.  Thermography use infrared technology to look at changes that may be associated with early malignancy and does not require compression. Breast thermography can detect the first signs of cancer up to 10 years before mammography.  Call to schedule your appointment today.

  

Children's Health/ Pediatrics

Your doctor will develop a personalized treatment plan based on naturopathic principles to best meet your goals.

Detoxification Program

We believe that a therapeutic detoxification program should be done under a physician's supervision to ensure appropriate and adequate support and detoxification stimulation.  Our Detoxification Program includes: Diet Plan, Supplementation, Physical Medicine, Acupuncture, Intravenous (IV) Glutathione, and Heavy Metal testing/ removal as necessary.  Our Diet Plan lasts from two to four weeks and is individualized to your specific needs. It is restrictive and includes non-allergenic, natural, and whole foods only. We make specific recommendations for foods as well as supplementation that include nutrients and botanical medicines that facilitate key biochemical processes in the liver, one of our main organs of detoxification. Recommendations for physical medicine include sauna, steam, hydrotherapy, and exercise, once again tailored to your needs. Acupuncture treatments that follow protocols designed by the National Acupuncture Detoxification Association (acudetox.com) are performed by our physicians who are also acupuncturists, specifically training in these treatments. We are pleased to offer intravenous (IV) glutathione therapy as an adjunct treatment in our detoxification program. Glutathione is a potent antioxidant critical for proper functioning of liver detoxification. Additionally, we offer state-of-the-art testing for heavy metals and offer treatments for the safe removal of these as part of the program. Detox for Health and Longevity!
 

  

Digestive/ Gastrointestinal Function Testing

For symptoms associated with gastrointestinal disorders such as persistent diarrhea, constipation, and bloating, as well as indigestion, irritable bowel syndrome, and malabsorption, we offer comprehensive stool testing to assess digestive and absorptive functions, the presence of opportunistic pathogens and to monitor the efficacy of therapies given.

  

Food Allergy Testing

We offer a step-by-step elimination diet, the gold standard in identifying food allergies, as well as blood tests using ELISA methodology to look at IgG & IgE Antibody-Mediated Sensitivities.  We help you develop an eating plan that works with your lifestyle and provide alternatives to foods eliminated.

  

Functional Medicine

Taken directly from The Institute of Functional Medicine's definition:

Functional medicine is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
