Functional Medicine is a relatively new approach to Health and Wellness. You don’t have to live with unwanted symptoms and accept them. Here we will work to find the underlying causes of why you are not feeling your best and address those. We offer a wide array of services.
BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Women
BHRT isn’t a drug treatment; it’s a natural way to replenish the hormones in your body that have diminished over time. By doing this, BHRT can reverse the symptoms caused by hormone deficiencies. Having your hormones in balance will leave you feeling younger, happier, and ready to take on anything life throws your way.
Bioidentical hormones are derived from plants, and they’re engineered to mimic the hormones that your body produces on its own. With bioidentical hormones, your body should not be able to tell the difference between the hormones it produces and the bioidentical ones. Bioidentical hormones not only correct your hormone levels, but they also do it without the serious health risks associated with synthetic hormones. READ MORE…
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy for Men
Women aren’t the only ones who can have hormone imbalances. As men age, they experience what’s known as Andropause (from andras, male and pause, cessation). Andropause can bring about lower testosterone levels, leading to a decrease in vitality, sexual satisfaction, and wellbeing.
You may think that these changes are unavoidable as you age, but that’s not the case. The exact cause of your low vitality can be discovered and corrected with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy at Wonderfully Made Functional Medicine. READ MORE...
Thyroid Disorders and Treatment
The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped gland, located in the lower front of your neck, below the Adam’s Apple. The thyroid releases hormones that are secreted into the bloodstream and carried to every organ in your body to control metabolism and regulate body temperature.
The thyroid hormone regulates vital body functions, including breathing, heart rate, nervous systems, body weight, muscle strength, cholesterol levels, and much more. When your thyroid isn’t operating well, it can bring on a wide variety of symptoms, including feeling cold when others don’t; feeling weak, sad, or depressed; feeling tired when you’ve had plenty of sleep; and a variety of others.

Adrenal Fatigue Treatment
The leading cause of Adrenal Fatigue is stress. When you experience stress, the adrenal glands go into “fight or flight” mode, pumping out cortisol and adrenaline, increasing your heart rate and breathing. You’re effectively in “survival mode.” Once the stressful situation has passed, your adrenal glands stop releasing these hormones and your body returns to normal operation.
The problem comes when stress levels go from just once in a while to all the time. In modern life, with pandemics, economic stress, and information overload, it’s no wonder so many are dealing with more stress than they can handle. Being in a constant state of stress causes the fight or flight system to overproduce stress hormones, and the system starts to break down. READ MORE…
Ozone is a different form of oxygen than what we breathe every day. It contains an extra oxygen atom; when Ozone enters your body, that extra oxygen atom reacts with your cell membranes almost instantly and provides multiple health benefits.
Ozone therapy can enhance the functions performed by your body every day. No matter what the illness, the body needs oxygen to heal. Without adequate oxygen, your immune system can’t work as hard to fight bacteria, viruses, cancer cells, autoimmune disease, and more.
While it doesn’t directly treat the disease, Ozone supports the essential functions of life. Your body can heal itself, and Ozone therapy helps to remove many of the blocks to your body’s natural healing ability. READ MORE…
High dose oral supplementation isn’t quite as intense or as effective as an IV and often times oral supplements can cause some stress on the stomach or digestive system, especially if one has malabsorption issues. IVs bypass the digestive system completely and provide much faster therapeutic effects and allow high serum concentrations which deliver direct cellular nutrition.
A wide array of conditions and issues can be addressed with nutrient IV therapies as an alternative to pharmaceuticals. These include migraines, hangovers, stress, fatigue, colds or flu, allergies, post-surgical wound healing or truly anything taxing the body. IV Therapies are also used to strengthen your immune system, for athletic performance enhancement, and for detoxification. READ MORE...
Menstrual and Ovulation Disorders
Are you experiencing menstrual or ovulation problems? If so, you may have a lot of questions. What causes irregular ovulation? How do you know if you’re ovulating if you have irregular periods? It can be a stressful situation, and that stress can lead to a continuation of the menstrual and ovulation disorders you’re trying to handle.
Wonderfully Made Functional Medicine is here to help. Dr. Kathryn Wood is certified by the Reproductive Health Research Institute (RHRI). With compassion and care, she will assess the underlying hormonal issues associated with your particular situation and create a treatment plan to help you recover a healthy hormonal balance.
