Resolve Your Symptoms ~ Finally!
Diarrhea, constipation, acid reflux, weakness — all can be symptoms of a problem with your digestive tract. It’s not just about the food you eat — there can be several contributing factors. What if most of them are preventable?
Anxiety & Moodiness
Anxiety, fear, unexpected anger or sadness. Sometimes you’ll know what triggered the feelings, sometimes you won’t. What if the underlying cause of these feelings isn’t mental but physical?
A constant state of exhaustion, no interest in engaging with family and friends, lack of interest in work, hobbies, no joy in the day-to-day adventure of living. This feeling is not one to be taken lightly and can be rooted in very treatable physiological conditions.
Hot flashes, night sweats, brain fog, insomnia, reduced muscle tone — all of these symptoms could be caused by a very specific physical issue — hormone imbalance in the body. While the symptoms may differ in women and men, hormone imbalance can affect all genders. There may be an easy way to eliminate this limitation. Three simple lab tests will help.

Our Patients Say...
Throughout the process of finding out why I was having so many stomach issues, I also started natural hormone therapy, since it was confirmed I was in menopause. Once I started the hormone support, I began sleeping better and my hot flashes stopped. Over time, I had more energy and just felt better overall!
Dr. McAlvanah has offered nutritional supplements, dietary changes and exercises to help combat my issues of insomnia, depression and adrenal fatigue. I have begun to experience some energy increase over the past month or so as I have been faithful in following her recommendations. In previous traditional medical doctor visits, the only prescription was for pharmaceuticals which caused horrific side effects. I am grateful for other options through alternative natural therapies. I high recommend Dr. McAlvanah to anyone who wants to get to the root of their health battles.
I started seeing Dr. McAlvanah because I was exhausted but could not sleep; my emotions were all over the place and crying had become a daily thing for me; my TSH was over 100 because I had stopped my thyroid meds in order to start iodine therapy recommended by a practitioner; I was in complete adrenal failure. I was under continuous stress for over two years at the time. My case has been difficult because the on-going stress continued. She has spent many hours with me trying to determine causes, not treat symptoms. I never felt rushed or that my concerns were not addressed. Unlike, conventional medicine, where the physician has no more than ten minutes and if you go over that time a sense of urgency comes over the physician.
I credit Dr. McAlvanah for helping to save my life.
2-1/2 years ago, I suffered with my second frozen shoulder. I was given numerous oral and injected steroids and NSAIDS. In Physical Therapy I developed joint pain, literally overnight. I went to my doctor and my blood work came back with an RA factor of 358 (normal is under 14). I was referred to a Rheumatologist and after a three-month wait, my RA factor had skyrocketed to 1280, and he wanted to refer me to a Cardiologist and begin Methotrexate and Biologics. I had frantically been searching for a doctor who would work with me, and honor my wishes to not go down that path. I read everything I could find about rheumatoid arthritis and alternative doctors.
I found Dr. McAlvanah and she immediately worked to get my inflammation down, and then began work on my adrenals. Within weeks of this protocol, my knee pain was gone! It took another year and a half to get rid of all the joint pain in my feet and hands but it is gone. It has been a loooong slow process, but I can thankfully say I no longer suffer from RA or Lyme or heart problems. With all this damage to my body, I still have some intestinal inflammation and food sensitivities, but am confident that Dr. McAlvanah will continue to find the root cause and eliminate ALL of my symptoms.
I have no doubt, had I followed the traditional route, my quality and length of life would have been compromised. Dr. McAlvanah is a truly compassionate, qualified health care provider and comes with my highest respect and recommendation.
I began with a treatment plan made especially for me, all natural, of course. In three months time, I was beginning to feel so much better. I was sleeping better, memory improved and my mood was much better. Now almost one year later, I am active, energetic and happy. Combining my supplement plan with a great exercise plan, I've lost 25 lbs. and 6 and 1/4 inches of body fat. My results are outstanding! I would highly recommend Dr. McAlvanah to anyone that wants real positive results and expert care! My life was changed and I could not be happier!
After several months of not feeling well and being tired all the time (no acute pain but naps were a must to get through the day) and conventional medical tests results didn’t show anything wrong with me, I decided to venture into the ‘world’ of non-conventional medical care. This journey led me to Dr. Tracy McAlvanah.
I was surprised by the non-conventional approach through which Dr. McAlvanah questioned, tested, and ultimately diagnosed the depleted levels throughout my body. She has also been a wealth of information in teaching me how to properly balance the different types of foods in my diet to boost the body’s healing properties.
Within a few days I started feeling better and continued getting stronger. Naps were no longer needed for me to make it through the day. Over the next several weeks my follow-up visits showed the depleted levels continuing to improve! One thing I have come to greatly appreciate is her proactive approach with my healthcare. She thoroughly explained every test, result, and the wellness plan, all of which were designed specifically for me!
I am so thankful to have an alternative to conventional medicine. Through the past three years I have continued to recommend Dr McAlvanah to many people and was so thankful several have chosen to be under her care.
I first came to see Dr. McAlvanah because of the arthritic pain I was experiencing. I had tried conventional medicine but found it to deal only with symptoms and never addressing the cause of the problem. In fact, they said they didn’t know the cause of my arthritis. In working with Dr. McAlvanah, I was able to discuss the cause of arthritis and a course of treatment to attack it at its core. Through a series of tests, she also found problems with my adrenal gland and effectively treated it with supplements and natural antibiotics. She asks the right questions and recognizes that good health is a combination of body, mind and spirit.
Dr. McAlvanah has been great to work with because she combines her knowledge and skill with a caring attitude. She is very positive and listens well to what I have to say using my feedback to help guide a course of action. Her approach is quite different from what I’ve experienced with conventional medicine where so much of the treatment uses synthetic drugs to relieve only the symptoms. I like the fact that she will discuss causes of problems and how best to get rid of the root cause. I feel that she really does care about making people better and sees it as her mission to help discover the course of action that will do just that.
The results of my treatment have been encouraging. The pain in my joints has been reduced to a very minimal level and is well on the way to being eliminated. My energy level has improved significantly and I’ve gone from barely getting through the day to being much more active and enjoying what I’m doing so much more. I think a lot more about what I can do rather than what I can’t or shouldn’t. I definitely feel a positive change in my life and my wife and family have noticed it too.
I would encourage anyone who has health issues to consider working with Dr. McAlvanah. Her approach is to listen to you and get to the causes of your problems. Her natural healthcare approach has made a big difference in my life and it could in yours as well.
I decided to explore a holistic approach in the treatment of my fistulizing Crohn’s Disease because traditional medicine wasn’t working. Dr. McAlvanah did a complete comprehensive workup to identify the cause of my disease and resulting symptoms and attacked my symptoms by focusing on the root cause of them. Today my fistula has healed and I am almost completely free from my stomach discomfort.
I suffered from low energy that kept me from enjoying time with my husband and children and grandchildren. After implementing the wellness plan by Dr. Tracy I have seen great improvement in my energy level. In previous years I tried many diet plans but could not lose the weight I wanted to lose.
After changing my diet and finding out which foods were causing me inflammation, I have lost 18 pounds!!! I am very pleased with the care Dr. Tracy has given me. She is a delight to work with and easy to talk to.
I have had stomach problems for the last 15 years. Visited many gastroenterologists and they all prescribed the usual: antibiotics and omeprazol. Last year I started to have severe stomach pain to the point it was hard to breath. Dr. McAlvanah did several tests and found the root of the problem. She taught me how to change my food habits and all the symptoms quickly started to desappear. After 2 weeks of anti-inflamatory diet not only stomach pain was gone, but constipation and depression were gone as well!
