Dr. Diem T. Nguyen, D.C., is the president and clinical director of NorCal Natural Integrative Healthcare, a practice that specializes in treating diabetes and thyroid disorders in the most natural way possible.

Several patients choose to receive care from Dr. Nguyen because of the unique approach she uses to treat everyone who comes to the institute. She knows that the key to regulating thyroid disorders takes more than managing the Thyroid-Stimulating Hormone (TSH) with thyroid replacement hormones. Instead, Dr. Nguyen focuses on the immune system and also takes on a whole-person approach. She considers several factors such as adrenal and blood sugar imbalance, hormone imbalance, immune imbalance and digestive imbalance before deciding on the best treatment for the patient.

Because Dr. Nguyen’s institute is so focused on the individual person, she uses functional lab testing to figure out a personalized treatment. She likes to use customized approaches — not just what is used to treat the “typical” thyroid patient. Each person has unique imbalances and different characteristics, so Dr. Nguyen uses this as the basis for all health plans. She listens and cares for all patients, understanding that health care needs to have a partnership approach and that all patients should never feel rushed or unsure of what is being used to treat them.

Many patients who come to Dr. Nguyen are middle-aged women who have been diagnosed by their doctors as hypothyroid. After taking several hormone-replacement drugs, these women still exhibit symptoms of hypothyroidism, despite treatment. To determine why this is happening, Dr. Nguyen takes a comprehensive look at both sides of the immune system to figure out what is off kilter and bring it back into balance with the other.

Dr. Nguyen also focuses on treating Type II Diabetes in the most natural, drug-free way possible. She believes that there are serious side effects from treating diabetes with the “standard” drug-based treatment.

“Today, you can do something more,” Dr. Nguyen said in regards to going beyond the typical protocol of managing the disease. “Whereas Type I diabetics need to inject insulin several times a day to stay alive, Type II diabetics do not need drugs. In fact, taking drugs for Type II diabetes can be far worse than the disease itself.”

Dr. Nguyen has several years of experience and has specialized postgraduate training in functional endocrinology and clinical nutrition. She is a functional medical practitioner, national speaker and wellness mentor. She is also the author of “Functional Approach to Managing Hashimoto’s,” and addresses chiropractic, nutrition, anti-aging, hormone-balancing, fitness, appearance and permanent weight control needs.

For patients interested in learning more about Dr. Nguyen’s unique approach, she hosts several free dinner talks many times a month. Attendants can choose from topics such as “Stress, Hormones and Belly Fat,” “Thyroid,” “Autoimmune Disease” and “Diabetes.” For a listing of dates, times and locations, visit norcalnaturalhealthcare.com.

NorCal Natural Integrative Healthcare has two locations: 4921 Golden Foothill Parkway in El Dorado Hills, and 7811 Laguna Blvd., Suite 180 in Elk Grove. For more information, call 916-478-2634.
