  • Understanding your lab tests, including interpretation of lab work
already performed.
  • Reviewing the best standard and not-so-standard treatments that you may want to pursue
  • Exploring how your thyroid, adrenal glands and sex glands interact with each other — and which tests and medicines may be needed to treat these additional problems and re-balance your energy gland system.
  • Discussing your options as far as prescription medications for balancing your thyroid, adrenal and reproductive glands– finding your best dose, brand, or mix of medicines
  • Boosting the effectiveness of your medication with natural therapies and  alternative medicine
  • Understanding how to improve your underlying autoimmune condition
  • Exploring lifestyle and mind-body issues that contribute to or help balance energy glands and autoimmune disease

Dr. Richard Shames is a Harvard and University of Pennsylvania educated practicing MD who specializes in optimal hormone balancing, especially individualized thyroid care. He is available to coach you one-on-one, with your complex health questions.

When you cannot travel to see him in his offices in San Rafael , California , you can schedule Telephone Coaching Sessions to discuss your health needs.

While Dr. Shames can serve as your coach, he cannot actually treat you or prescribe medications if he has not seen you as a patient in his office.

Therefore, alongside your Hormone Coaching Session(s), you will need to also be working with a personal physician in your own community.

Don’t Have a Doctor in Your Own Area?

In some areas, Dr. Shames may be able to recommend a particular practitioner, during and as part of the Coaching Session. At the end of your coaching session Dr. Shames will know your case well enough to make an appropriate referral.

We regret that Dr. Shames is not able to make referrals for people he has not persoanlly coached.
