Millar Functional Medicine is home to Greg Millar, DC PhD; Helen Stoddart, MD; and Bonnie Sims, ND. Millar Functional Medicine is a new concept in alternative holistic and functional medicine for North Alabama. We look at the whole body as one naturally. We go after and treat the "root cause" or "underlying cause" of your problem(s) and not just treat your symptoms. We use sophisticated testing from traditional and functional laboratories to aid in finding your root cause, deficiency or problem. We use lifestyle modification, diet, natural supplements and botanicals, homeopathic remedies, nutraceuticals, peptides, IV therapy, and muscle and joint injections if needed. We specialize in Gut issues, Detox Issues, Hormone Issues, Autoimmune Disease, Diabetes, Fatigue and Many More.
Many Patients with gut issues, like IBS IBS-C or IBS-D, dysbiosis, SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) or CIFO (small intestine fungal overgrowth), and acid reflux have an abundance of bad bacteria like H-pylori, C-Diff, EColi or SIBO in the gut biome. They often also have virus, and candida or fungal overgrowth like CIFO. Some can be even hidden in or under a biome film. True Gut Detox kills these bad actors. Depending on the condition and it's severity it can take weeks to months. Symptoms include: acid reflux, gas, belching, flatulence, upset stomach, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, anxiety, autoimmune issues, and many more. The Gut and the treatment of the gut is one of our areas of excellence. We love the Gut.
After removing bad bacteria, viruses, yeast and fungal overgrowth from the microbiome we now must fix the leaky gut and get the body digesting and absorbing nutrients again. Then we can concentrate on getting the gut to produce and absorb necessary body chemicals like Serotonin and Dopamine as well as vitamins like Vitamin K. About 90% of the brain chemical Serotonin is produced in the gut. So if the gut is not working the patient can experience depression and anxiety. Fixing the Gut can take weeks to months depending on the condition and it's severity. The Gut is an area of excellence for our Doctors.
True Cellular Detox is a complete detox of the body. Unlike a liver flush or kidney flush or a colon flush, True Cellular Detox goes upstream to the cells and detoxes Heavy Metals like lead and mercury, Mold, and Chemical Toxins from industrial and agricultural chemicals. When you realize that here in Huntsville AL we have two EPA Superfund sites: Redstone Arsenal and the Tennessee River. Added to that is the recent disclosure that 3M was dumping toxic materials for 30 years. Symptoms include: fatigue, brain fog, Detox is also an area of excellence for our Doctors.
So many patients come to us with hormone imbalances. They are a mess, living a roller coaster life of up and down. From adrenals to thyroid to pituitary we have to look at all the hormones in HPA axis... hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal. Then we have all the sex hormones from estrogen to progesterone to testosterone. The difference you feel in balancing these and other hormones is simply amazing. We use sophisticated testing of complete hormones to determine what to treat and where to treat. Simple hormone blood testing is just not enough to information to treat. Balancing Hormones is also an area of excellence for our doctors.
We often start with sophisticated DNA testing where we look at 30,000 protein genes and 900,000 SNP's or variations. Using artificial intelligence software we analyze your 900,000 SNP's looking for things we can help your body correct. Using genomics we can often turn on or turn off many genes. We can produce over 50 reports on your DNA and what it means to your health.
It's autoimmune because the body is attacking itself. The immune system is overactive attacking you and causing a myriad of symptoms. Autoimmune disorders rarely come in singles and often the patient has multiple autoimmune disorders. We turn down the over excited immune response and let the body heal the autoimmune disease.
A Many of our patients present with Fatigue. What we have to determine is your fatigue primary fatigue from something like EBV or CMV virus, or is it secondary to something else like Fibromyalgia, or Hormones, or Sleep or Anemia or many others. Once we determine the "root cause" of your fatigue, we treat that root cause and help you get your life back.
Once the gut is fixed and absorbing nutrients properly then we can determine if your deficient in any nutrients. We look at chemical pathways through the body. We find many are deficient in magnesium, or zinc, or iodine or other basic minerals. Add those in and the body starts working again.
There are just so many reasons your thyroid gland slows down or in some cases speeds up. We look at the thyroid and all its problems and symptoms and determine the root cause or true cause of thyroid dysfunction. Then we fix that dysfunction. Thyroid problems are and area of excellence for your doctors.

Fix Type II Diabetes and help stop your future dementia or Type III Diabetes. We love to treat diabetes and change your trajectory in life. This is one of our areas of excellence.
