Hormonal health is essential for the proper functioning of virtually every bodily system. It comes as no surprise that when hormones are unbalanced we can see changes in everything from mood, energy and menstruation to sleep, skin and digestion. By assessing your individual symptom picture and using comprehensive lab testing, I can identify which hormones are out of balance and suggest targeted solutions. I strive to provide treatment that goes beyond the use of synthetic hormones, focusing instead on the reason your hormones have become unbalanced in the first place.
I’m a firm believer that health starts in the gut. Your personal gut flora, how you digest your food, and your ability to absorb nutrients all have profound effects on your wellbeing. I dealt with digestive issues for 12 years before I found a solution, and I don’t want anyone to suffer like I did. Everything from IBS and thyroid disease to autoimmunity and skin conditions can usually be traced back to poor gut health. If you’ve been struggling, let’s talk! I would love to support you on your path to health.
Although it may not seem like it, your period is a blessing! Why? Because every period is like a monthly report card, providing essential information about your health. If you’re suffering through unbearable cramping, heavy flow, PMS or even no period at all, it tells me a lot about what is going on beneath the surface. I am passionate about helping women love their period again and I’d love to be a part of your healthcare journey! Whether you’re dealing with PCOS, endometriosis, infertility or you just need some help coming off the Pill, I’m here to help.
Aging is a beautiful and natural process that we should embrace. Those small lines on your face are a sign of a life well-lived and you should never feel shame for that! Unfortunately, poor diet, a stressful lifestyle and suboptimal health can lead to accelerated aging. I truly believe that our outward appearance is a reflection of our inner wellbeing. My approach is holistic – I use tools like cosmetic acupuncture, gua sha, nutrition, supplementation and lifestyle counselling to get you glowing again.
Laboratory testing is a powerful tool that provides insight into your unique physiology. Using targeted tests, we can uncover the biochemical mechanisms underlying your symptoms. I offer conventional blood testing (the same tests that your family doctor can order) as well as specialized lab tests that are more comprehensive (think the DUTCH test, salivary hormone test, comprehensive stool analysis and more). When it comes to your test results, I am not satisfied with “normal” – I want your values to be optimal!
