From menstrual cycles, PMS, and menopause to fertility and pregnancy, there are many hormonally related health challenges that a woman may face during different phases of her life.
PMS symptoms are wide ranging and may include mood swings, breast tenderness, bloating, painful periods, etc. At the other end of the spectrum, menopause symptoms commonly include hot flashes, low sex drive, weight gain, mood swings, brain fog, and insomnia. While some may believe that some of these symptoms are an inevitable part of being a woman, I am here to tell you that they do not have to be! As a naturopath, I will help you to come up with an action plan to balance your hormones, so you can feel like yourself again.
Hormonal imbalances can also contribute to infertility, which can be an incredibly frustrating and isolating experience to go through. Whether you simply want to optimize your fertility or you want to get to the root cause of your infertility, Naturopathic medicine has the tools to enable you to identify and treat the root cause of your concerns and optimize your fertility.
Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy is a unique treatment that I can provide as a naturopathic doctor who has passed additional licensing exams enabling me to prescribe pharmaceuticals. Bioidentical hormones have a molecular structure that is identical to that of our human hormones. They are made from natural, plant based extracts. Bioidentical hormonal therapy can be a great adjunct to the foundational dietary and lifestyle treatments to treat hormonal imbalances, and can often be the final addition to your treatment plan that can push you from feeling okay to feeling great.
