Pregnancy can be a difficult time, with a whirlwind of emotions and symptoms that change daily. I love supporting women throughout their entire pregnancy, from the prenatal to postnatal period. I help women to manage their symptoms and optimize their health and their babies health through safe natural therapies and acupuncture treatments.
Women’s Health Concerns
I love supporting women through all of life’s stages. I help women in managing conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis, painful periods, irregular periods, menopause and hormonal imbalances. I believe in empowering women to take control of their health by educating them about their health concerns and providing the tools to support them along their journey towards feeling their best.
Fertility challenges are often extremely difficult on mental, emotional, physical and financial wellbeing. I focus on determining and treating the underlying causes of fertility concerns while optimizing factors such as egg and sperm quality to support the goal of achieving a healthy pregnancy. I often requisition lab testing to investigate further into potential underlying causes that may be contributing to a difficulty conceiving.
Nutrition and Lifestyle Counselling
Diet and lifestyle are foundations for health and are often recommended based on individual patient concerns and goals. I don’t believe in “diets” because they are often not sustainable long term. My focus is on providing education and a way of living that allows you to feel your best and achieve your health goals now and into the future.
Botanical Medicine and Supplements
Botanical medicine is the use of medicinal properties of plants to stimulate healing and restore balance. It can be used in forms such as teas, tinctures and capsules. Botanical prescriptions and supplements are often indicated in a wide variety of conditions. In my practice, I use evidence-based prescribing and keep up to date with the latest research in order to provide the best level of care.
Acupuncture is a form of traditional Chinese medicine that uses fine needles to stimulate blood flow and energy throughout the body. It is often used to restore imbalances and can be indicated in many conditions including digestive dysfunction, fertility challenges, hormonal imbalances and pain management.
