Our History.

Founded in 2004, Yost Wellness Center in Urbandale, Iowa, has already helped thousands of patients regain their health and vitality. Led by Author, Educator and Founder Heather Yost D.C., C.F.M.P., our physicians and team are providing an environment of hope and well-being for each of their patients.
At Yost Wellness Center, we are leading a Wellness Revolution that advances a new model of health care by pioneering cutting edge treatments while utilizing Functional Medicine. This new model of health care respects you, the patient, and puts you in charge of your health and vitality. Our desire is to help you get your life back naturally, effectively and safely.

Our Approach.

By utilizing natural vitamins, minerals, herbs and specific dietary changes that restore your body to optimal levels, strengthen the immune system, and increase energy levels, we are able to help you get well and stay well.
Our Center specializes in helping patients with hypothyroidism, adrenal fatigue, digestive disorders, depression/anxiety and hormone imbalances using Dr. Yost’s proprietary 5 Point Treatment Program.
Given our years of experience, level of expertise, and renowned treatment, Yost Wellness Center is considered the Holistic Health Expert.
Apart from our revolutionary paradigm and treatment, what makes us different is that we listen to you. While many medical professionals have a treat-by-number approach that is focused mainly on lab tests, diagnosis, we are busy treating our patients…listening and learning from them. It is our deepest desire to help you obtain and maintain health and wellness naturally so that you may enjoy a better quality of life, pure and simple.
Our goal is to earn your trust through exceptional care and unparalleled service. As your wellness partner, we believe your improved health and well-being is not only possible, it is expected. We would count it a privilege to be your personal guide on the path to health and wellness.

What Makes Us Different.

Here at Yost Wellness Center, our approach is common sense. We look at you as a whole person in your entirety, instead of as a collection of independent organs and systems. Using science-based Functional Medicine, we are able to uncover the root cause of your chronic illness. With traditional medicine, most doctors fail to look beyond your disease or symptoms. They simply provide what they believe to be the fix for your symptoms, which is often a prescription drug.
As you have probably realized, merely treating the symptoms does not fix the problem. And many times it will allow the problem to become worse.
Functional Medicine, on the other hand, looks deeper than your symptoms. We believe that diabetes, heart disease, fibromyalgia, thyroid dysfunction, hormonal imbalances, cancer, and other illnesses occur when the body loses proper function.As a Functional Medicine clinic, we test and never guess what your body needs. We don’t just run your basic blood test that your doctor runs once a year. Our testing may include comprehensive blood testing, holistic lab testing and genetic testing to help you discover where the imbalances in your body exist. We seek to identify the root cause for your loss of function. We discover the “why” of your suffering. Using targeted lifestyle changes, nutritionally balanced eating, and a customized supplement program, we work to restore proper function while reducing symptoms and the need for medication.The first step in discovering what’s keeping you sick and unhealthy is to schedule a free consultation with one of our doctors or take the Online Health Evaluation to instantly discover what systems of your body are the cause of your health issues and keeping you from obtaining the health you deserve.
