Comprehensive Thyroid Panel and Master Hormone Panel
Has your get up and go gone? Get tested. Not all fatigue is due to thyroid malfunction, so how do you tell the difference?
Your thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland that produces hormones that influence essentially every organ, tissue and cell in your body. Thyroid disease, if left untreated, can lead to heart disease, infertility, muscle weakness, osteoporosis and, in extreme cases, coma or death — yet it’s estimated that half of the cases in the United States and Canada remain undiagnosed.
Hypothyroidism (under active thyroid) affects some 80 percent of people with thyroid disease. Symptoms of hypothyroidism include fatigue, forgetfulness, depression, constipation, and changes in weight and appetite.
Thyroid-related fatigue begins to appear when you cannot sustain energy long enough, especially when compared to a past level of fitness or ability. If your thyroid foundation is weak, sustaining energy output is difficult. You will notice you just don’t seem to have the energy to do the things you used to be able to do.
How do I know my thyroid isn’t functioning properly?
Your body will likely let you know, and fatigue is the most common sign, followed by depression and muscle weakness. Along with the symptoms above, signs of an under active thyroid also include:
· Difficulty losing weight despite proper diet and exercise
· Sensitivity to cold
· Dry, rough or scaly skin, and dry, tangled hair
· Hair loss, particularly from the outer part of your eyebrows
· Brittle nails, cold hands and feet
Of course it goes way beyond just thyroid but if you are not having a comprehensive thyroid panel run then you are missing key information. You may be told by your physician that you are “fine”, within “normal ranges” or “it’s all in your head” I’m here to tell you its not fine, your lab ranges should be functional ranges bringing you to optimal levels not sub par. Oh and it’s not in your head, if you are feeling it then it is very real, so lets get you back on track and balanced out!
Hormone balancing and a Master Panel
Do you have adrenal fatigue? (you can also run an adrenal panel)
Are you high stress? Are you low on energy all the time and feel like you are running on empty?
Have your adrenals tested. Custom compounded Human Identical Hormones can help you to feel like yourself again.
Thyroid dysfunction can negatively effect the neurological, cardiac and skeletal muscle, kidneys, and hormone-producing tissues in our bodies.

What about menopause or andropause?
When you are 20 regardless of whether you are a man or a woman, you are full of hormones, you are fertile, diseases are rare and recovery is swift, you can get your body weight under control with diet and exercise and you want to have sex.
With the aging process, women loose their hormones and along with this hormone loss, they start experiencing symptoms that make them feel poorly, not like themselves. In menopause, women have hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, irritability, stubborn weight gain, loss of libido, infertility and develop chronic illnesses like high cholesterol, dementia and high blood pressure.
You can try to exercise, change your diet, get some rest and take supplements, but unless you address the hormone balance and recreate the environment of your 30s and early 40s, the aging process will inevitably prevail.
There are options for the safe and intelligent use of hormones to decrease the risks brought on by aging, but this is not a part of the basic curriculum in medical school.
Bioidentical hormones or human identical hormones are a class of hormones that have been in conventional medical use for more than six decades. Hormone formulations and preparations are crucial and they do affect outcome in both men and women. The science of hormones is sound and the clinical application and use of hormones in wellness and disease prevention is of the utmost importance.
Understanding the difference between hormones and their application are the key to ideal hormone balancing.

DNA, Functional Genomics & Nutraceuticals
What is the good of decoding your genome if you don’t take action to correct missing genes and variations which can have profound effects on human health? Why not maximize your healthcare regime with customized medicine.
When this model is applied in clinical practice it takes the guessing out of my work.
No more trying to find the most bioavailable, easily absorbed version of a supplement that matches whichever need each patient has. Hoping that we have found the right one, if it is even something that we as practitioners are able to source, which let me assure you with growing health concerns we are more often than not finding this to be quite the challenge.
For patients with health conditions as varied as cancer, autism, autoimmune disease, hormone imbalances and even lyme disease. Each need is as different as each set of DNA. So how does the one size fits all approach work? Truth be told, It doesn’t.
Genetic variations can both influence the risk of disease as well as prevention. Each genetic variation reacts with nutrients, vitamins and minerals found in our food. Hundreds of studies have confirmed this to be the case. Customized dietary and supplemental plans based upon your genes are the most effective treatment protocols one can obtain.
Implementing health solutions with only part of the picture means you are only getting half (if that) of the results. You need to be implementing detailed protocols and health solutions based upon your own unique genes. Removing the guess work of what ‘might’ work turning it into what WILL work.
Are you tired of seeking out both conventional and alternative health care only to find that you still have found the answers you are searching for? Then DNA testing is the answer, however this does not mean just any DNA panel. They are NOT all created equal. I have spent the past 5 years searching for the perfect fit, the one panel that gave ALL the answers that my patients could ever need and then some. I finally found Youtrients and world renowned geneticist Dr Mansoor.
Frustrated with the quality and type of the supplements on the market today, Dr Mansoor and his team decided to do something about it. They have given practitioners like myself the ability to create customized nutraceuticals that are an exact fit for our genes… Yes you heard me, an EXACT FIT. No more messing around trying to find the version that works for you or wondering if you should switch it up to a better brand or if there are troublesome fillers that may irritate an existing condition. They do not outsource their manufacturing process and no two supplements will be the same, just as no two sets of DNA will be the same. Using only the finest of the world’s raw materials, some of which you and I could not source from a shelf even if we tried.
Pair this with the most accurate genetic test on the market, and I say that with confidence because it is. I don’t mess with anything but the best. No other genetic company is able to do what this company is doing.
We are now able to correct and asses the genes that are creating diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hormone imbalances, detoxification issues, obesity, cognition, anti-aging, and performance.

What Our Patients Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our patients do the talking!
I had been fighting a losing battle with the medical system. I was told repeatedly it was “all in my head”. Finally I had enough when I found Holly. She was able to walk me through the many issues I was facing and narrow it down to one deep root cause. We worked over the course of 6 months to finally get me back to feeling human again. Truth be told I felt human after the first 2 weeks! I sleep better, I don’t have that belly bloat that never wanter to go, and my husband says I’m more fun! That’s probably because I don’t need to be in bed by 7:00 PM and I’m not a cranky puss.
If it wasn’t for the functional approach used in Holly’s practice, I may have suffered for years to come. So happy I found her.Sylvia G
This woman seriously rocks! She found things wrong that I never even thought of. Turns out the things I thought were wrong were just symptoms of something much deeper. Leave it to Holly to figure it all out. I was back to my energetic self in 3 months.
“Just Breathe” the best advice anyone ever gave me, thank you Holly.Janice
I had searched for a long time to find a functional medicine practitioner near me and couldn’t find one. I stumbled across Holly’s posts and started to follow her. A few months later I took the plunge and booked a skype evaluation with her. Not only was she able to test my stress hormone levels, she was able to tell me exactly where the stress was coming from, all the way back to childhood.
Once I was able to figure out the source of my stress I was able to manage it much better. I no longer have to pop tylenol every day for headaches, I can think clearly – no more brain fog, and my muffin top mysteriously disappeared!
Holly you are a gift!Amanda

I see both men and women. I do specialize in women’s health, female hormones and all the wonders that this involves but I do deal with men who suffer thyroid or adrenal issues.
What is your refund policy?
Due to the nature of the product, there is a strict no refund policy. This is why we schedule a consultation with a detailed health evaluation to see if you are a candidate for both our programs and the diagnostic testing. We want to see you succeed as much as you want to find results, this means we strive to only take those who are within our scope of practice. No referrals are ever made unless it is to a board certified affiliate who we have fully researched and found to be the best.
How do I know what tests I need
Some patients do not ever require diagnostic testing, we aim to figure it out based upon your health evaluation and assessment. It is only if we see results but need to take a deeper look that we recommend specific diagnostics panels be run.
