Welcome to the Natural Balance Health Clinic!
I opened the Natural Balance Health Clinic in August 2016, and here it is December already! It has been an extremely busy 4 months, and I thought I had better seize the moment to finally write my “welcome blog” before I get swept up in the whirlwind of the holiday season.
I am a Naturopathic Doctor and have been practicing in London and area for over ten years. I was one of the founders of the Forest City Naturopathic Clinic, and practiced there for ten years. This spring, after having my third child, the time was right to open my own clinic, Natural Balance Health Clinic.
I found a wonderful location at 262 Oxford St E, and I am now feeling very settled in. I plan to continue the family practice I established over the past ten years, providing naturopathic care to men, women and children for a wide variety of medical concerns, and also have the space to focus in on two of my new interests: Bio Identical Hormone Treatments and IV Nutrient Therapy.
Naturopathic Doctors can treat a wide variety of health concerns. Some of my most common conditions treated include: digestive concerns (IBS, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, food sensitivities), immune support (frequent colds, chronic infections, auto immune conditions, allergies, supportive cancer care), mental emotional concerns (anxiety, depression, stress related conditions) and hormonal balancing (fertility, menopause, painful or irregular periods, acne, hair loss).
I have always followed a functional medicine approach to naturopathic medicine, and am fascinated by how underlying imbalances and deficiencies can affect a persons’ health. I will often recommend specific tests, so we can pinpoint the cause of certain symptoms, and develop a specific treatment plan which can correct these imbalances. Some of the most common tests I will recommend include: expanded thyroid testing, nutrient levels (iron, vitamin B12, magnesium, zinc, vitamin D), food sensitivity testing, saliva or urine hormone testing, heavy metal testing, and comprehensive digestive stool analysis with parasitology.
Hormonal Balancing has always been a special interest of mine, and I have extra certification in Therapeutic Prescribing. This allows me to prescribe Bio Identical Hormones and Natural Dessicated Thyroid Treatments, as part of a comprehensive treatment plan to help people regain hormonal balance and optimal health. I have been very excited about the fantastic results I am seeing with these treatments, and happy to share them with my patients.
I also have extra certification in IV Nutrient Therapy. This allows me to provide a wide variety of IV treatments including: Myer’s Cocktails for adrenal support, immune support, chronic fatigue, and fibromyalgia, IV Glutathione for detoxification, and IV Vitamin C and Helixor Mistletoe Therapy for supportive cancer care and chronic infections.
I am looking forward to a busy holiday season here at Natural Balance Health Clinic, and a wonderful New Year! Please feel free to call or email the clinic with any questions, we are always happy to hear from you.
