Toronto Naturopathic Clinic
Many women experience chronic conditions that are unique to women only. A holistic approach to treatment targets the root cause of women’s health issues in order to resolve symptoms and prevent future recurrence. Since women’s hormones affect many aspects of health including mental/emotional health and reproductive health, the effects of balancing these hormones can help a woman live a happier and fuller life.
Women’s conditions we commonly provide treatment for include:
- Prenatal Care
- Premenstrual syndrome
- Urinary Tract Infections (UTI)
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Bacterial vaginosis
- Chronic yeast infections
- Heavy periods
- Hot flashes and other difficult menopausal changes
- Irregular periods
- Menstrual cramps
Dr. Guthrie can guide you through a healthy pre-conception stage where you prepare your body for a healthy pregnancy. During this planning stage, it’s is important to adopt a healthy lifestyle, correct nutritional deficiencies and promote healthy stress management strategies to prepare your body for conception and to support a healthy baby.
