Conditions

The human body has an innate ability to heal itself given the right internal environment.  Naturopathic Medicine encourages this process. That is why all health conditions can be safely treated by a Naturopathic Doctor (ND), who is trained in using natural medicines.

Anti-Aging
Your skin and appearance are affected by your overall health, your nutrition and your hormones and environmental toxins.  Naturopathic medicine has all the tools available effectively treat Anti-aging.  Knowledge of nutrition and supplements to help your skin stay as youthful as possible.  Stress reduction tools to help prevent rapid signs of aging. Non-surgical medical aesthetics including cosmetic Botox/Dysport,  PRP (platelet rich plasma ) vampire facelift, and dermal fillers.   Which all work on reducing the visible signs of aging.  As a naturopathic doctor I can work on revealing your true beauty from the inside-out.

Weightloss
Weightloss is multifactorial issue, its not as simple as calories in/calories out.  Issues, such as stress, emotional eating, pain, gut imbalances can all affect your ability to lose weight.  Its also important to remember that hormones dictate what your body does with food, so any imbalance will affect your ability to lose weight.   As a Naturopathic Doctor I use a comprehensive approach of pharmaceutical and nutritional sciences to help patients lose weight safely and effectively. The use of natural hormones and nutrients to help direct your body to use up calories from fat instead of storing fat results in safe, effective and rapid weight loss.  I take all these factors into account when I make a weight loss plan for you.   I also provide encouragement and support to help you along the journey.

Hormonal conditions
You deserve to have ALL the current information presented to you in order for you to make an educated decision about hormone replacement therapy. My job is to ensure you leave the office with your questions regarding hormone balancing and hormone replacement answered. Through a detailed history and testing we can determine your hormone levels and correct imbalances using herbs, diet and if desired bio-identical hormones.

Menopause
Symptoms such as hot flashes, depression, insomnia, fatigue, vaginal dryness, headaches and low libido are due to fluctuating hormones..

PMS
Symptoms such as cramps, breast tenderness, irritability, acne, bloating and cravings.

Infertility?
There are many components that contribute to achieving a healthy pregnancy. ND’s take into account immune function, ovulatory patterns, hormone function, nutrient deficiencies and fertility awareness. Preconception planning is the best way to ensure an easy conception and healthy pregnancy. Women who detoxify before conceiving have considerably less nausea and vomiting in the first trimester compared with women who do not. It is worth it!

Digestive Conditions
The foundation of Naturopathic Medicine is built on a healthy digestive tract. ND’s have excellent results treating digestive complaints such as IBS, constipation, gas/bloating, reflux/heartburn, crohns disease, ulcerative colitis, chronic diarrhea, stomach ulcers, and gall bladder dysfunction.

Allergies & Asthma?
Allergies and asthma are very easy conditions to treat with natural medicine. It is possible to manipulate the diet in such a way that the body releases less histamine. Homeopathy and botanical medicine are extremely effective for both asthma and allergy relief.

Fatigue?
Do you experience an energy crash between 3-5 pm in the afternoon? If so, you may be suffering from adrenal burnout. The adrenal glands are responsible for releasing adrenalin when the body needs a “pick me up”. Specific toxins, stress, allergies and certain dietary patterns are responsible for draining the adrenal glands of adrenalin, which results in not enough available for your daily energy needs. Effective treatment aims at tonifing the adrenal glands so that the adrenalin stores are replenished. This results in a mid-afternoon high instead of a low. Energy increased throughout the entire day and immunity is improved.

Depression?
Depression is becoming more and more prevalent in today’s society. Prozac is handed out like candy for complaints such as fatigue and chronic pain. Anti-depressants are simply a band aid for underlying imbalances that need to be corrected. There are natural medicines available, which help the body to correct serotonin levels without side effects.
