Women’s health concerns are common and pervasive among the population. They are often multi-factorial in nature and can be impacted by all aspects of a woman’s life. In naturopathic medicine, we consider physical, mental/emotional and lifestyle factors to be equally important when treating women’s health conditions. We also perform an extensive and comprehensive evaluation of our female patients taking a deeper look at the underlying causes of women’s health complaints. More often than not symptoms like painful periods, PMS, lumpy breasts, hot flashes, etc. are regarded as “normal” female phenomenon. However, these are often warning signs of underlying imbalances. Our body is always talking to us, Naturopathic doctors are trained to listen and respond using natural and effective evidence-based medicines. Our unique women’s focused treatment approach combines the latest in therapies and diagnostics available for women’s health. Every treatment plan is personalized and catered to the unique needs of each and every woman we see.
