Low energy is the number one health complaint that brings people in for naturopathic care. You would be surprised at the number of possible causes beyond low iron that exist! Our aim is to determine the underlying causes of health conditions and treat from there – this leads to long-term solutions without the need for multiple supplements or medications. Other areas we examine, include: nutrient deficiencies, stress hormone imbalance, food intolerances, sleep disturbance, poor detoxification pathways, among many other possibilities.
Mood conditions are also commonly treated in the naturopathic setting, looking at digestion, hormones, stresses among other things to treat the physiological side of the disorder. There is an enormous amount of research right now on the gut-brain relationship too, indicating that foods and imbalances in the microbiome can have an impact on your mood and brain chemistry. Our psychotherapist is also a fantastic support for addressing the emotional and circumstantial aspects that are affecting your mood.
Your metabolism can be affected by the type of food you eat, the presence of insulin resistance, inflammation, thyroid function, stress hormones and more. The old view of addressing simply calories in and calories out become outdated, and now we treat weight and metabolism issues with more accurate diagnosis. Our naturopathic doctors, nutritionist and psychotherapist can all support you on an effective weight-management plan.
