What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct form of medicine that addresses the root cause of a health disorder or disease.
Naturopathic Doctors (ND’s) use natural therapies to enhance and promote the natural healing capabilities of the body so it can heal itself without worrying about the common side effects of medications. The goal of naturopathic treatment is to promote wellness and prevent disease.

NDs obtain comprehensive and rigorous training in an educational structure similar to that of medical doctors. NDs require three years of pre-med postsecondary education, plus four years of full-time study at an approved college of Naturopathic Medicine. Naturopathic Doctors are highly educated primary care providers who integrate standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies. .
Naturopathic care provided by a licensed ND will promote general well being and may avoid the use of further medications. Natural alternative treatments are safe and effective. Naturopathic Doctors take the time to listen to their patient’s health concerns.

What to expect in a visit?

Your first visit with your naturopathic doctor will consist of a 60 minute appointment where you can expect a thorough intake of your health concerns and a focused physical exam. An individualized treatment plan will be prescribed and re-visited in about 4 weeks time. ND’s use evidence based research to assess and treat each individual’s health needs.

What are bio-identical hormones and how can they help me?

Bio identical hormone are natural hormones with the same molecular structure as your own hormones, so the body can accept them as their own. This differs from conventional hormone therapy because conventional hormones are made from equine or horse hormones which have a different molecular structure than human hormones. These synthetic hormones cause many unwanted side effects. Bio-identical hormones are made from ‘natural’ sources such as soy and yam in a compounding pharmacy.

The hormones that are typically prescribed depending the individual are natural sources of estrogen, progesterone, DHEA, testosterone and desiccated thyroid hormone.

As we age, hormones decline which contribute to sagging skin, a decrease in muscle strength, low libido, low energy and a depressed mood. These symptoms are just a few of what is experienced when hormones decline as we age. As men and women enter their 40’s, 50’s and 60’s they experience specific debilitating symptoms related to andropause and menopause. these symptoms can be improved by bio identical hormone therapy and life can be enjoyed again.

Even at a young age, some experience hormone imbalances which contribute to irregular, abnormal or painful periods, abnormal hair growth, acne and even infertility. Once again BHRT can be used to treat these concerns so hormones can become balanced once again

    I strongly recommend Amanda Walton; she is a great RMT. I have been getting massages from her for over 1 year and am thoroughly pleased. ‘Hands that Heal’ is a lovely office that offers a wide array of services. I am pleased with the service of all the staff I’ve dealt with

    The staff are skilled, helpful, and so friendly. It was my first time trying acupuncture and the only successful type of treatment in relieving my migraines. Now, I'm a regular!
