“I have been blessed to work with Amy Hiestand who specializes in bio-identical hormone therapy as well as weight loss. I continue to learn and grow my knowledge on a daily basis and absolutely love helping my patients not only reach their weight loss goals but keep the weight off. What we find our patients are most satisfied with (other than their incredible weight loss) is the encouragement and support of my staff. We are here for you every step of the way both to cheer you on and hold you accountable.”

Luda Sharak, CMA

As a teenager I was already checking glucose, blood pressures, managing medications and many other medical assistant duties for my mom who was diagnosed with a tumor in her brain which caused her to become completely blind. I became a certified Medical Assistant right after high school because I enjoy helping patients seek all the medical attention they need. I have always been very family oriented and putting family and patients needs ahead of everything else is a priority for myself. Working at Total Body Wellness encompasses my compassion to work closely with patients and to help them achieve their goals in health and wellness.

Amy Hiestand ARNP, BC

amy-hiestadSo nice to be introducing myself to you, now lets get working together to make a difference in your health! I was born and raised in Montana, I enjoy anything in the mountains and outdoors. I ski and snowshoe. I love to camp and hike. Flyfishing is my weakness and I find so much peace with nature. I love animals, I have 4 dogs, 2 are rescues and 3 horses, 1 is a rescue colt. I have honeybees and I have many fruit trees and love to garden. I have 2 amazing sons 17 and 16, both are talented, handsome and strong working. I am engaged (long term) until my children are out of high school to a wonderful man who enjoys my same passions and is a very hard working Emergency Room physician.

I have now spent 23 years in Emergency Medicine. I currently work in the Emergency Department at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center in Spokane. From 2006-2008 I also worked in a Family Practice office part time doing mostly women’s health. From 2008-2013 I had a passion for Women Health and Integrative Medicine and started a clinic with a ND and we provided great integrative health care for women, men and children. I have spent almost 8 years working with women and hormones, bio-identicals and weight management and thyroid disorders (a special passion of mine as I had thyroid cancer when I was 21). I also have worked with men and hormones and all other family members with an integrative approach. I utilize herbal supplements with homeopathies and hormones and diet to help people achieve their health goals and with their input we can be successful. I have focused on these areas because I believe feeling good is part of quality of life.
