Choose the Program That’s Right for You…

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.

Our Method

How We  Address the Root Cause of Your Symptoms and 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 (GERD, heartburn, IBS, SIBO, Crohn’s, Colitis
  • Autoimmune Conditions (IBD, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriasis, Multiple Sclerosis, Hashimoto’s Disease, Celiac’s, Crohn’s, Type-1 Diabetes)
  • Hormonal Imbalances (Feeling “tired & wired”, Hypothyroidism, Hyperthyroidism, PCOS, PMS, Hot Flashes, Painful Periods, Mood Swings)
  • Metabolic Syndrome, Obesity & Dyslipidemia
  • Energy Issues, Stress & Chronic Pain (Chronic Fatigue, Adrenal Issues, Fibromyalgia etc)
  • Cognitive Issues (SCI/MCI, “Brain Fog”, Memory Issues, Alzheimer’s Disease etc)

What You Will Find


Our team will be there for you throughout your health journey. You will not be alone.

Our priority is to provide you with the most effective healthcare possible.

We will listen to your story carefully and partner with you as you succeed.

New Life Skills

The Functional Medicine Center of Montana will teach you skills you can benefit from for a lifetime. We believe the true value of our service starts when you leave the office and apply what you have learned.

We will be there to educate you along the way so you can learn to take better care of yourself and your family.

Our goal is to help you heal so that you no longer need to be seen in our office.

A Unique Program

Your lab results will not tell the full story of what is going on with your health. 

It is our goal to identify what is creating your lab results so that we can work together to design a unique program to help you heal. 

A few of the services we offer, such as Pantry Clean-Out, Shopping Day consultations, and conferences on how to make Healthy Cleaning Products, are designed to make you aware of some of the potential triggers of your illness. These services will give you the tools needed to create lifestyle changes that will positively influence your healing.

Personal Connection

Science has proven that investing in your community, ie: sharing common attitudes, interests and goals with like-minded people, is key to living a long and healthy life.

We know it is worthwhile to put extra time, energy and effort into providing a strong social network that will make you feel connected to your environment.

5 Common Misconceptions About Functional Medicine

# 1 – “I’ve already done that…”

We frequently hear this from our patients during our discovery calls. What patients don’t realize is that Functional Medicine practitioners are trained to find the root cause of an illness. They do this by spending time with their patients and taking a very careful history. This history is not limited to their previous health. It also includes their genetics, environment, social network, belief systems, and many other crucial but often overlooked factors. One of these factors frequently plays a role in chronic illness. Functional Medicine practitioners also use the latest, proven Functional Medicine lab testing which is not found in the conventional medicine world. It is quite possible there are still many aspects of your health that have not been fully explored.

# 2 – “My doctor diagnosed me with…”

The practice of conventional medicine versus functional medicine are completely different. Conventional medicine focuses on symptoms that make up a disease. It advocates the same treatment for all who have been diagnosed with a given disease. Functional Medicine is focused on the root cause of your personal health issues and provides a specialized plan of treatment for each patient. The functional medicine approach will also be more focused on your long-term health. 

# 3 – “Maybe next month when things slow down a bit…”

If you are healthy, you will have more freedom to do the things you enjoy most. And, if you want to feel better, investing your time is the most important thing you can do for your health. Our goal is to make your course of treatment go as smoothly as possible. If your schedule is tight we will accommodate you by offering the option of doing telephone or video consultations. We feel that by offering you the support and guidance you need, we will save you hours spent waiting in doctor’s offices or pouring through medical literature looking for the right treatment. 

# 4 – “Functional Medicine doctors are so expensive…”

This may not be as true as you think it is when considering the current crisis our health care industry is in. People are becoming more and more ill, requiring more and more office visits, with prescriptions for more and more medication. Functional Medicine is the most affordable healthcare available because it seeks to optimize your body’s natural functions so that it can heal itself and work at its best ability. In the long run this demonstrates significant cost savings to both the patient and the healthcare system. Even if you have met your deductible for the year, how many times will you have to be seen and how many more years will you have to meet your deductible before you finally feel better? Functional Medicine teaches you independent life skills which make your health care cheaper over a lifetime. If your illness is concealed with medication you will eventually require more tests and medications as you become more symptomatic.

# 5 – “I can figure this out on my own…”

There is no limit to the medical information you can find if you look for it.  But the medical information you find will be nonspecific. It won’t tell you anything about what is unique about you. And what is unique about you may be what is keeping you from healing. Functional Medicine providers specialize in the ability to find the root cause of your health problem. They will order functional lab testing that will yield more information than you or your conventional doctor will ever know. As well, they teach you life skills while providing you support that will allow your body to begin to heal.

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.

Tracie Stolte

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.

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.
