    Can you recommend a doctor that I can go to see that does not require a referral from my regular MD. I live in Chattanooga, TN.

    seditve, anestisia + low thyroid function equals myxedema coma/crisis. my wife was misdiagnosed w/brain stem stroke/slow blood flow to the brain on eeg. but low thyroid function will cause the same condition if not restored by thyroid medication. iv T3 10-20 mcg (1-2 ml)

    50 yo female in Ohio, tested in my thirties for thyroid antibodies-negative. Hypothyroidism was discovered in me from a T3 by dialysis 16mos ago by a famous endocrinologist/diabetologist. He put me on Synthroid which sent my pressure to 180/110 and made me very weak and ill. He put me on bio T3 and my T4 crashed. In the meantime, thanks to your website, I discovered my cortisol level was low. I was started on a cortisol supplement and it appears my adrenals have recovered. I finally got on armour. My T3 and T4 normalized. But my heart rate soared and my TSH bottomed out (<0.1). I still feel awful. No energy, lots of fatique, poor concentration, brittle dry nails skin and hair (all of which were true when I was in high school too). However, the one important benefit of thyroid treatment, years (30+) of depression improved (and finally off all the damaging antidepressants!!). Without thyroid help, I plummet by into depression. Just FYI, I am a type 1 diabetic who has horrible cravings and can not seem to fight carbs off. My last A1C was 5.6. I'm being treated for yeast, but as soon as the diflucan is gone, or when I stop nystatin, my pain soars, particularly joint. Just found out I'm allergic to eggs, garlic and pepper. Not sure even how to eat with those limitations, but managing. Lastly, I spent my savings going to NY to see the diabetologist. Coming to your clinic would be wonderful, but I don't have the funds to get to Texas. Any suggestions? Please. I just want life to be more normal for a few years. Thanks Dr Hotze!!

      Dear Tess, Thank you for your comment. We are sorry that you have had such a difficult journey. Yes, if your adrenal glands are stressed, then thyroid hormones may not work as well. Our medical team would be happy to help you. We do offer financing through Care Credit, as well, if that helps. Please contact a new guest consultant at 877-698-8698 who can answer any questions you have about our treatment program. We want to you experience optimal health so that you can live your life to the fullest!

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
