Women’s Health & Naturopathy

Hormonal imbalance can have far reaching affects across a person’s health

There are many factors that contribute to hormonal imbalance, and these are things we can uncover in a consultation.

Natural medicine is a gentle and effective way to rebalance and bring the body back to equilibrium.

Below are just some of the things that women come to see me about – if you have any questions please contact me directly.

Menstrual problems can have a variety of related causes, such as stress, nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalance, contraception, among others. In a consultation it is my aim to understand your unique requirements to help you with this.

These are conditions that are closely related with hormonal imbalances in the female reproductive system. Nutritional deficiencies have also been related to this. Understanding each woman’s special requirements needs to be understood in a consultation followed by recommendations. Dietary, nutritional, herbal and homeopathics have a role in treatment.

Perimenopause, sometimes called “second puberty” often starts in your 40s and typically lasts 4-6 years.

Typical symptoms to watch out for are:

  • Mood changes: irritability, anxiety, depression, nervous tension, sensitivity to stress
  • Memory loss
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Sleep problems
  • Fatigue
  • Migraines
  • Weight gain
  • Hot flushes and night sweats
  • Changes in menstrual cycle
  • Vaginal dryness and painful intercourse
  • Low libido
  • Breast changes

When you haven’t had a period for a year, you are then said to have reached the menopause. At that time these symptoms typically disappear.

Functional testing can take the guesswork out of your perimenopausal journey.

There are some wonderful things that can be taken naturally to balance hormones and pave the way for a smooth transition to menopause.

Natural medicine is used to address the underlying causes of fertility problems. People come to see me with a wide range of issues, such as a history of failed IVF, miscarriage, unexplained fertility problems, and concerns about age. Isolating the underlying cause is key, and from there your tailored program will be designed to optimize your chances of conception and having a healthy pregnancy. Click here for more

Hormonal imbalance and changes associated with peri-menopause and menopause can lead some women to become prone to UTIs and conditions such as interestitial cystitis.
