Healing as Medicine
Women's health and Naturopathic Medicine
People often ask me what is "naturopathic medicine." They suggest questioningly, is it like homeopathy or preventive medicine? Well kind of..... but.. the most unique and exciting thing about naturopathic medicine is that it is a system of medicine that supports the body's own ability to heal.
Did you know that your body can heal itself under the right conditions?
I think this is especially relevant in women's health. We all know what its like to go to see your doc for a hormonal issue and the solution given is a hormonal treatment no matter what the problem is, hot flashes, missing period, heavy period, acne, endometriosis, and PCOS. These all have the same treatment? Really?
In your mind, you may be thinking that taking hormones is not really addressing the root cause of your problems; instead they are suppressing your own hormonal systems and dominating them with a drug.
Well, my friend and sister, there is so much more for you. There are many things you can do to support hormonal balance in your body and support healing. Many herbs that help adjust uterine tone, balance estrogens, support progesterone, balance blood sugar and help clear hormonal acne. All of these things can be boosted with dietary and lifestyle changes to be even more powerful and healing. What if the goal was to heal? What if the imbalance you're experiencing didn't have to be a permanent lifelong issue but that you could heal yourself? You can. If you're looking for support or have questions, please get in touch with Balanced Natural Health, we're standing by to help you along this beautiful journey.
