At Bridger Natural Medicine Clinic, it is our expertise in women's health, menopause, peri-menopause, hormone therapy, and anti-aging regimens for both women and men which separates us from other naturopaths and physicians in the area, including expertise in thyroid disorders and gastrointestinal treatments.
Hormone therapy (HT) is an option when a patient's own production of hormones wanes, is insufficient and/or out of balance. This may be the result of stress, poor diet, anxiety, pregnancy, and from the natural process of aging. HT, done well can greatly influence quality of life in making transitional times more comfortable and manageable.
This is Dr. Lemley's true area of specialty and expertise, being the ONLY physician in southwest Montana who carries the Certified Menopause Practitionercredential via the esteemed North American Menopause Society, since 2005. Patients from around the nation seek out Dr. Lemley for his experience and expertise in treating women going through this transitional time.
Known medically as Andropause, coined more humorously as: "Man-O-Pause," this is the male equivalent to a woman's menopause. Often dismissed as a "midlife crisis" or simply the result of aging, men too undergo very significant physical and emotional changes similar to what women experience by virtue of the aging process.
Thyroid disorders are common in our population, especially hypothyroidism or Hashimoto's Disease as well as hyperthyroidism or Graves Disease. Dr. Lemley is extremely adept at managing disorders of the thyroid gland to optimize thyroid function and full body metabolism via use of prescribing a variety of thyroid hormones and sometimes herbs and specific nutrition and supplementation.
Treating gastrointestinal issues is a cornerstone of Bridger Natural Medicine Clinic. No matter the case, Individualized GI treatments and diets are provided to optimize digestive function by restoring the micro-biome and proper function of the "gut/brain/axis," to achieve healthy gut function for ideal and optimal health.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) utilizes one's own blood platelets in non-surgical, minimally invasive procedures for cosmetic/facial rejuvenation and hair restoration with amazing results. PRP is lightly injected, or "microneedled" into areas where rejuvenation is desired, and stimulates one's own natural production of stem cells to look and feel younger.
