Melanie Keller ND
Dr. Keller has extensive knowledge in small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) and has trained with world renowned Dr. Mark Pimentel, Dr. Allison Siebecker and Dr. Steven Sandberg-Lewis. She has helped many patients restore their gut health and over-all vitality. She utilizes functional testing, nutrigenomics, energetic psychology techniques (EFT), and visceral and / or structural manipulation. Her evidence-based naturopathic practice also addresses each person individually to bring balance to their unique gut microbiome. Hormone changes due to bacteria and endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) create a constellation that is unique to each person as to how their multiple systems react / respond. Dr. Keller has found that treatment focus needs to be specific to interrupting xenoestrogens from entering the cell that cause mitochondrial dysfunction and propagation of disease.
ABOUT DR. KELLER
I UNDERSTAND A PATIENT’S FRUSTRATION BECAUSE I LIVE THROUGH IT MYSELF.
The prevailing standard of care in SIBO never completely helped me, in fact some made it worse! I realized that if I was going to see results, I’d have to take action myself. For me, the breakthrough came by learning about the effects lipopolysaccharides (LPS) from bacteria have on biochemical pathways. By paying close attention to eliminating overgrowth of bacteria and supporting my MTHFR compound compound heterozygous status I was able to make great strides in resolving and preventing relapse of gastrointestinal dysbiosis. All of my research since – and it is ongoing – confirms these original insights. I share this knowledge with my patients as nearly everyone I’ve tested with SIBO has also had MTHFR and other genetic mutation/s. I’ve develop highly individualized treatments for each of them in combination with blocking environmental toxins.
I’VE LEARNED THROUGH MY RESEARCH PLUS MY VERY PERSONAL EXPERIENCE!
Perhaps my most significant realization is this: when you experience your body functioning properly, you discover a new found love and appreciation for yourself and your health. I look forward to meeting you and hearing your story. Together, we can get you back on track so that you begin experiencing the full results of living at your best!
