Are You Ready to Commit to Feeling Better and Understanding the Root Cause of What is Making You Ill?

Lets transform your health with a personalized plan that will restore your vitality and put you back in control of your health!

Do You Feel Misunderstood?

Have you ever told your health care provider about your symptoms only to walk away without a clear understanding of what was going on?

We believe the answer to how you can heal lies in your personal narrative. By carefully mapping out a timeline of your life and symptoms, we will be able to pinpoint exactly where to get started and how to best serve your needs.

We recommend specialized functional lab testing that will give us important information about what your body needs to function optimally. We also advocate for a healthy lifestyle, appropriate mindset, nutrient dense foods, and evidence-based supplement support.  These are absolutely essential to your healing.

We want to work closely with you so you feel both heard and supported. All of this and more is essential to restoring your health and vitality.

How We Address the Root Cause of Your Symptoms & Restore Your Health

What We Evaluate

In recognition of the conditions patients present with, Functional Medicine Center of Montana providers focus on the patient’s history. We want to fully understand what is driving their illness. We then find ways to remove the obstacles that prevent their healing.

We want to help our patients take control of their own health. Our goal is always centered around restoring vitality.

We believe the body should be looked at as one integrated system and not as a disease that was diagnosed based on a patient’s symptoms. This allows us to take a patient-centered approach, addressing the whole person instead of their multiple symptoms.

Although we look well beyond a given diagnosis, patients with the following medical problems have made significant progress with their health goals:

  • Digestive Disorders such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, heartburn, irritable bowel syndrome, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, crohn’s disease and colitis
  • Autoimmune Conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis, hashimoto’s, celiac’s  and crohn’s disease and type-1 diabetes
  • Hormonal Imbalances such a fatigue, anxiety, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, polycystic ovarian syndrome, premenstrual syndrome, hot flashes, dysmenorrhea and mood swings
  • Metabolic Syndrome such as obesity, dyslipidemia, hypertension and diabetes
  • Energy Issues, Stress & Chronic Pain such as chronic fatigue, adrenal dysfunction, and fibromyalgia
  • Cognitive Issues such as “brain fog”, memory issues and alzheimer’s disease

Why Partner With A Functional Medicine Practitioner?

Being healthy is so much more than eating right and getting daily exercise. Current medical research has revealed the body is a complex collection of organs, systems and bacterial colonies (the microbiome) that greatly influence each other. Despite these findings, medical standard of care has remained the same and conventional physicians are still treating parts of the body separately without understanding the impact they have on each other.

When you are healthy, your body systems work together like a symphony in perfect harmony. But when one of these systems becomes unbalanced, the whole symphony is out of tune! It isn’t enough to look at the area that isn’t functioning properly. All of the organs, systems and microbiome need to be balanced so they can work together optimally. Taking a prescription medication to treat symptoms associated with a body part will not be enough.

Chronic debilitating illness can stem from many different things. At Functional Medicine Center of Montana, we listen to your story and use advanced testing along with up-to-date nutritional science to discover what your body needs so it can finally heal. We take a multi-faceted approach to find the underlying root cause of your illness.

What Our Patients Have To Say

“I was diagnosed with Stage 3A Breast Cancer over 5 years ago. ”

I was diagnosed with Stage 3A Breast Cancer over 5 years ago. I traveled down the conventional path of medicine to help “get rid” of the bad cells.

April of 2017 the same cancer decided to show up in my skeletal system. I had a golf ball size tumor taken from my left hip joint. It was then, I decided to walk the line of Western and Eastern Medicine.

Now, my cancer is “stable”. Dr. Thorn and I crossed paths last winter. She introduced me to OGX Spore Powder and assisted me trying to dig a little deeper in strengthening my digestive and immune system to counteract the cancer meds I’m on as well as help fight the war against those “bad” cells in my body.

I respect and appreciate Dr. Thorn’s knowledge and ability to help better my life.

We have had multiple medical issues with our young daughter.

We have had multiple medical issues with our young daughter. As far back as I can remember Dr. Thorn has been there to listen to our concerns and offer much-needed support. As Dr. Thorn transitioned to functional medicine she has opened up doorways for our daughter’s epilepsy control, gut health and has helped us live more stress-free.

Dr. Thorn continues to be compassionate and patient when listening to concerns. We are very grateful to have her as part of our family medical care.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is This Program Right For Me?

If you’re tired of shuffling from doctor to doctor without ever getting to the root of your chronic health issues, and if you want to optimize your health holistically through sound lifestyle modifications, advanced lab testing and mind-body techniques without unnecessary medications, then our program may just be what you’ve been looking for all along. Just know that it takes a serious commitment to make the lifestyle changes necessary to transform your health once and for all.

What About Supplements & Lab Testing?

As a prospective patient, you may wonder about additional costs not included in our program fee. We know that you’ve likely been to other providers before that may have already run lab tests. That’s why during our comprehensive intake consultation, we will review any existing lab results – so that we can determine if additional, more advanced lab testing is needed to confirm a diagnosis. In terms of supplements, we may recommend certain pharmaceutical-grade supplements for a limited time to support your body’s innate healing process. But long-term, we believe that supplements can’t make up for a poor lifestyle – so our intent is to get you off supplements and unneeded prescription meds as soon as possible.

What Should I Expect From My Discovery Call?

During the free discovery call, we’ll determine whether partnering with our team is the best next step for you. We’ll go over any questions you may have about our approach, and how it differs from what you’ve tried before – so you feel comfortable about the journey ahead.

What Should I Expect From The Initial Appointment?

Ahead of the initial paid appointment, you will complete our extensive background history forms so that we can properly review your history and lab results ahead of your appointment.

During the appointment, we will together review your completed intake form, medical history, current and past lab tests – as well as any medications taken, so that we can arrive at a baseline assessment of your overall health and nutritional status. If needed, we may decide on more advanced lab tests to confirm (or rule out) a specific diagnosis, so we can create a personalized treatment protocol.

Why I Chose to Practice Functional Medicine

Dr. Keri Thorn

After practicing in a conventional medicine setting for over 20 years, I felt there had to be a better approach to take in treating my patients. I wanted to utilize a patient treatment model that acknowledges each person as an individual where their genetics, environment, personal interactions and nutrition all affect well-being. I designed the Functional Medicine Center of Montana with the belief that this model of healthcare is the most patient-centered, science-based, comprehensive and complete healthcare available. I am committed to listening to your unique story as you begin your journey to optimal wellness.
