Hormone Health

You’re 42 and you know something isn’t right, but you’ve been told “you’re too young for (peri)menopause.”

You feel like you’re on a hormonal rollercoaster, and not the fun kind.

You don’t feel like yourself anymore, and you just want the “old you” back.

Your periods are like a crime scene, or debilitatingly painful, or both.

Your period never shows up when you think it should, or it doesn’t show up at all.

Your vagina is drier than your skin in January, but you’ve been told “that’s normal at your age”

There’s a spare tire around your waist that won’t go away, no matter what you do.

I hear you & I get it. I know you’re frustrated. You aren’t crazy. And you deserve better.

My biggest passion in my work is empowering women (and men) to take back control of their health and find themselves again. I love educating and problem solving with my patients, to find effective solutions for you. You are a superhero and you deserve to feel like one.

Healthy hormones are critical to good health and vitality for both women and men. As we age, undergo stress, pass through transitions such as pregnancy or menopause, are exposed to environmental chemicals or poor food choices, or just get lucky (or not) with genetics, fluctuating hormone levels can often cause problematic health symptoms.

As an evidence-based Naturopathic Doctor, I am uniquely qualified to help you wade through the misinformation and understand all the available options, including nutrition, lifestyle, movement, menopausal hormone therapy (sometimes called bioidentical hormones), vitamin and mineral supplementation, herbal medicine, acupuncture, and even other medical and surgical options (which are not done by me luckily!). I have my certification for prescribing in Ontario, and have taken extra training in menopausal hormone therapy, endometriosis care and thyroid prescribing. For 2024, I’ll be working on more training in pelvic & sexual health, as well as other women’s health topics.

If you’re ready to experience health care differently, so am I. Let’s do this!
