WOMEN’S HEALTH

There are many aspects of health that are unique to women. There are different challenges at various stages in life as well.

As Naturopathic Doctor, I strive to let my patients speak so that I can take a holistic view of all your concerns. I feel that is a key to identifying underlying causes, which may affect several of your health concerns. Addressing these collectively achieves a long-term benefit that is not found by treating any one issue in isolation.

I want to support women of all ages with their particular health needs. Some common issues presented to me are:

  • Menstrual dysfunction
  • PMS
  • Fatigue
  • Digestive upset including IBS, crones’, diarrhea, constipation, pain
  • Stress
  • Bloating
  • Skin conditions
  • Headaches
  • Cramping
  • Fertility concerns and pre-conception planning
  • Hot flashes and menopause related concerns

Unfortunately, I frequently hear my patients express frustration with their inability to be heard, particularly when they talk about hormone issues. There are many Laboratory Tests that can help get to the underlying cause of your hormonal symptoms. An example would be the Comprehensive Hormone Insight (CHI) assessment, which can be used to identify hormone anomalies or to establish a baseline for future comparison. The Food Sensitivity Test (FST) can identify foods that have aggravated the immune response which can manifest in various symptoms.  A naturopathic approach to female health will also include the interactive dynamics of nutrition, lifestyle, exercise, stress and environment. Please book an Initial Naturopathic Consultation and get your health back.
