Do you find it harder to breeze through your to-do list? Feeling "off" some days and don't know why?
Have you packed on a few pounds seemingly "out of nowhere"? Are you noticing disconcerting hair loss?
Getting plenty of sleep... yet still don't wake up refreshed?
Do certain foods cause digestive drama... but you can't pinpoint which ones?
Take this short quiz to find out if gut or hormonal imbalances are to blame!
HERE'S WHAT MOST PEOPLE DON'T KNOW...
"My Tests Came Back Normal!"
Conventional Gut Testing Misses Bacterial Imbalances
Conventional GI testing often comes back "normal" – because scopes don't pick up bacterial imbalances (SIBO or Candida) and conditions like leaky gut. Sadly, patients leave feeling unheard & confused while still dealing with digestive drama. Going deeper on possible gut imbalances is key so you don't suffer from the "fall-out" from untreated gut conditions – namely inflammation & hormonal imbalances.
Are nutrient deficiencies slowing your thyroid function?
Even the healthiest eaters are still prone to nutritional deficiencies due to stress, gut infections, taking medications, or toxic exposure. Additionally, they may be eating foods they have an intolerance to. Using an integrative approach, we first evaluate all possible root causes of your symptoms – including possible gut imbalances, food intolerances & nutrient deficiencies that can be easily corrected with a personalized protocol .
"If I Could Just Fix My Hormones!"
Gut issues & stealth infections affect all your hormones!
Your body's hormone system is pretty complex and that's why trying to "fix" hormonal imbalances on its own will frequently backfire. Stealth infections, poor gut health or insulin resistance push hormones out of whack... so we need to address those issues first before looking into more conventional treatment options like hormone replacement therapy (HRT) which is always an option.

DON'T WAIT IF YOU'RE...
My experience with Dr. Mark was outstanding. I was referred to Dr. Mark by my ENT and I knew immediately that I was in good hands. He really took the time to listen to my concerns and he answered all of my questions. I was very impressed by the amount of time and the personal attention that I received. I did not feel rushed nor did he make me feel bad for asking so many questions. He was so kind and patient with me and I really appreciate the follow-up that I received from him and his office.

Dr. Mark has really helped me to have a happy gut at last! I highly recommend his services. This has also been the best practice I've been to where you are always greeted with a smile from all members of the staff. At the front desk is Mimi. She is very pleasant and helpful. Dr. Mark has such a positive spirit about him. I appreciate all the knowledge he's shared with me on how to make smarter food choices for my body's benefit. Many thanks, Dr. Mark!

I am truly impressed with Dr. Mark's professionalism and knowledge. He is so well-versed in functional medicine and was able to explain things to me in very simple and understandable terms. He takes the time to get to know your issue and get to the root cause of your problems. Dr. Mark also has a fantastic bedside manner. He and his wife Dr. Frances make an excellent team. I highly recommend them.
