Naturopathic Approach to Women's Medicine

Naturopathic Doctors with a Heart for Women’s Medicine

Natural Medicine and Holistic Health Care for WomenWomans Health Balance

When we think about women’s health issues and medicine, we think about balance.

Often women’s health issues come down to the idea of balance.  Are your hormones in balance?  Is your life (work, home, stress, family, etc.) in balance?  Is your emotional life in balance?  Is your diet in balance? 

When one thing is out of balance, the chain reaction can be extensive, leading to physical and emotional symptoms seemingly unrelated to the original imbalance yet vitally connected.  Holistic medicine can restore overall balance and lead to a healthier body and life.

Our Personal Approach to Women’s Health and Alternative Medicine

We work with each woman as an individual.  When we meet a new patient, we clear our mind of preconceived notions and see her as a unique individual, with a personal story, and a distinct set of issues that require an individualized, holistic health care solution.  We don’t have “protocols” for various women’s health issues because each and every woman is different.

Naturopathic Doctors with a Heart for Women’s Medicine

Day after day, women seek the care of our naturopathic doctors due to hormone-related issues.  Trouble transitioning into menopause, trouble with menstrual cycles, mood swings, weight gain, loss of sex drive, emotional ups and down—we’ve observed these issues in women of all ages. 

Other women come in with hormonal issues that take on the form of sexual and reproductive problems-- infertility, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, ovarian cysts and more.

The conventional approach to many of these hormonal and women’s health issues is a hormonal solution.  For younger women conventional medicine suggests the birth control pill; for older women hormone replacement therapy is considered the answer. 

For many women, however, these replacement hormones simply suppress the body’s natural cycle and manipulate the body with artificial hormones; they do nothing to address why their symptoms are actually occurring, why the body’s natural hormonal balance is out of balance.

Many women who seek our care are not comfortable being on these hormones, and are seeking a different, healthier approach. They wonder if there might be something more. Natural holistic health care is the solution! Synthetic hormones carry serious potential side effects—blood clots, heart disease and cancer.

As naturopathic doctors we look deeper and delve into what is causing your symptoms in the first place.  For example:

  • Is your stress level taxing your adrenal glands, which throws your other hormones out of whack?
  • Is your diet impacting your digestion, which prevents your liver from optimally processing your hormones?
  • Is our toxic world and the toxic burden on your body more than your body can handle; is the modern environment and lifestyle taking a toll on your hormones and the rest of your body?

Regain Balance Inside and Out With Natural Holistic Medicine

In many women it’s a combination of factors that work together to throw hormones out of balance.  This imbalance then leads to further imbalance in other body systems. Our practice’s philosophy is to explore a woman’s health from all levels: physical, mental and emotional before drawing any kind of final conclusions. Just because a woman has a hormonal problem does not mean that she requires a hormonal solution.

Our naturopathic doctors offer women relief from menopausal symptoms and other health issues without hormone replacement therapy, natural or synthetic.  While working in collaboration with their current doctors, we facilitate a gentle transition for women who wish to stop birth control or hormone replacement therapy.

By restoring balance, you can feel better and prevent disease without irritating symptoms.  This natural approach to women’s health issues increases overall quality of life and well-being.
