Hormones govern your metabolism, stress response, blood sugar, immune system, reproductive and sexual function. Hormonal imbalances can contribute to mood swings, fatigue, weight gain, skin changes, and low libido. Menstrual symptoms, infertility, peri/menopausal symptoms and BPH also result from altered hormone metabolism. Blood and salivary testing is used to investigate thyroid, adrenal, pancreatic and reproductive hormone function. Lifestyle and dietary modifications as well as acupuncture, herbs, homeopathy, and bioidentical hormones are used to help bring hormonal systems back to balance.
Frustrated with persistent weight gain? Struggling to lose those last ten pounds? Factors such as toxicity, metabolic disorders, and hormonal imbalance can impact weight. Body composition testing, specific lab tests, and VEGA testing can be used to identify road blocks to weight loss. Dietary and lifestyle changes, nutritional and herbal supplementation, and detoxification programs are included in your personalized weight management protocol.
Proper cleansing can improve digestive health, hormonal imbalances, skin conditions, energy levels, and your overall sense of well being. A Naturopathic doctor can help you determine the best way to approach safe and effective detoxification. Your personalized cleanse program may involve the use of specific dietary changes, supplements, herbs and complex homeopathy.
Digestive complaints are among the most common concerns that Naturopathic doctors treat. Symptoms such as gas and bloating, constipation, diarrhea, and heartburn are all indications of imbalance in the digestive system. Conditions such as Crohn's, ulcerative colitis, GERD, and IBS can be improved with Naturopathic care. Blood and stool tests, food allergy, and VEGA testing may all be used to identify areas of concern. Gut healing protocols may involve the use of diet changes, detoxification, supplements, herbs, acupuncture and intravenous vitamin therapy.
Pain or injuries of any sort can limit your ability to get the most out of life. Headaches, neck pain, back pain, joint pain, and muscle aches can all be treated effectively with Naturopathic medicine. Assessment of structural imbalance, injury, and pain is used to determine the most effective treatment program. A series of acupuncture, massage, or (spinal/joint) manipulations can provide reduction or elimination of your pain. In addition to physical modalities, certain supplements, herbs, and topical therapies are also used to address pain management. Appropriate treatment of pain or injury leads to less discomfort and better function in the long run.
