Low Energy & Adrenal Fatigue

Do you feel tired, low in energy and exhausted?
If the answer is yes, you’re not alone. In fact, most patients that I see wish they had more energy!

Common Causes of Fatigue & Low Energy
• Vitamin deficiencies (for example: iron, vitamin D, vitamin B 12)
• Poor nutrition habits
• Sluggish thyroid or hypothyroid
• Insomnia & poor sleep quality
• Infections
• Allergies
• Food allergies & food sensitivities
• Depression
• Adrenal fatigue

The good news is that you CAN have more energy. I’ll work with you to identify your energy-draining habits and run tests to check for vitamin deficiencies, infections, hypothyroid and food sensitivities. Once we discover why you’re feeling tired, I’ll put together a treatment plan to help jump-start your energy levels.

Thyroid Conditions

Are you tired, cold, depressed, losing your hair and gaining weight?
It could be your thyroid!

Symptoms of Hypothyroidism (aka. “sluggish thyroid”)

• Weight gain or inability to lose weight despite a healthy diet and exercise
• Hair loss
• Dry skin
• Feeling cold
• Constipation
• Depression
• Infertility

Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT)

I have some of those symptoms but my doctor says my thyroid is “NORMAL”!

I see patients everyday who have been told that their thyroid is normal based on a single test called TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone). The problem with relying on this single test is that it misses a large percentage of thyroid issues. My approach is to run a full thyroid panel (which includes TSH, free T3, free T4, and TPO-antibodies) in order to get a full picture of how the thyroid is working. It’s also important to look at other hormones which affect thyroid function such as cortisol and estrogen.

Natural Treatments for Thyroid

• Nutrition Counselling
• Herbal Medicine
• Vitamin & Mineral Supplements
• Stress Management Techniques
• Detoxification & Avoidance of toxins and heavy metals

Hormone Imbalances

As women, we experience health conditions that are unique to us. Our complex web of hormones predisposes us to a variety of different health concerns than that of a man. Hormonal imbalances can contribute to vaginal dryness, menopausal symptoms, hot flashes, menstrual cramps, irregular or heavy periods, low libido, PMS, insomnia and anxiety.

Common Hormone Imbalances:
• Low progesterone
• High estrogen (“estrogen dominance”)
• Low estrogen
• High testosterone
• High/low cortisol

We will conduct thorough hormone testing to identify which hormones are out of whack and offer natural treatment to rebalance them including dietary changes, nutritional supplements, herbal medicines, and bio-identical hormones.

Infant & Children’s Health

Any parent can attest, seeing your child unwell is one of the most stressful events of parenthood. As a mother of three, I understand! By discussing your child’s health concerns, your treatment options both naturopathic and conventional as well as preventative measures, I can help you navigate your child’s health journey. Some of the most common complaints I see include colds & flus, allergies, eczema, asthma, digestive concerns, food intolerances and ear aches. I also provide well child checks, discuss the importance of preventative medicine and teach you, the parents, how to manage illness when your child does get sick.

Digestive Health

Your digestive tract is the key to enjoying health since it’s responsible for nutrient absorption, immune function, hormone balance, and it even affects your mood! The health of your digestive tract can easily be disturbed by stress, eating the wrong foods, environmental toxins such as pesticides, and certain medications.
Some of the most common complaints that patients see me for are digestive issues such as heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, IBS, gas and bloating and irritable bowel disease. Healing the gut often requires making dietary changes, including identifying food allergies and sensitivities, and providing healing nutrients such as vitamins, minerals, and herbal medicines.
IV nutrient therapy is also a valuable tool for quickly replenishing the body of nutrients (without relying on the intestines for absorption), increasing energy levels, and allowing the body to heal.

Detoxification Protocols

Detoxification involves the removal of toxic substances from the body. Our body is constantly detoxifying toxins through the skin, lungs, liver, kidneys and intestines. However, due to the constant exposure to daily toxins as a result of modern living, the detoxification process can become compromised.
Supervised detoxification protocols may help treat skin conditions, headaches and migraines, digestive disorders, weight loss and obesity, chronic pain and toxic overload.

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture, sometimes called the “acupuncture facelift” is a safe, effective and natural treatment to reduce the signs of aging and improve the overall appearance of the skin. Facial rejuvenation acupuncture helps to promote a more youthful, glowing appearance by supporting overall health and wellbeing. Its benefits include: reducing the appearance of pores, fine lines, and wrinkles; increasing skin tightness and collagen production; reducing oil production and balancing hormonal skin.

How does it work?

By inserting fine needles into the skin, we create a micro (aka teeny tiny) injury which triggers the healing process in the same way your body heals itself after a cut. Part of the healing process involves increasing blood flow to the area which provides fresh oxygen and healing nutrients.


How many sessions do I need?

Some individuals will notice the appearance of their skin improves after one treatment. However, significant lasting results usually occur after 6 or 8 treatments. A full treatment series includes 12 weekly treatments. The effects can last several years with regular maintenance treatments.
