WOMENS HEALTH
& HORMONES

Do you know if you have a Hormonal Imbalance? 

Are you periods painful, heavy or stopping you doing what you’d like?
Are you suffering from irritability, mood swings, headaches, acne, irregular or absent periods? 
Have you been trying for a baby but not yet been successful? 
Have you lost your energy, enthusiasm or motivation? 
Are you having hot flushes, loss of libido, weight gain or sleep issues?
 
If you are experiencing any of these, it may be due to hormonal imbalances. 
Achieving an ideal hormonal balance results in feeling balanced, with consistent energy and mood, enjoying restful sleep, maintaining healthy skin, and experiencing predictable cycles.


Our Naturopath hormone specialist, Nicole has a particular interest in women’s health, fertility, reproduction and hormone health and supports individuals who are looking to gain their health and balance back in these areas.
 

How can a Naturopath for Womens health help?

Throughout our lives we experience many stages within our hormonal health journey. From puberty, through to perimenopause and finally menopause we experience marked changes to our bodies and our bodies needs. 

 

Between that there may also be pregnancy, birth, post-natal recovery and breastfeeding thrown into the hormonal mix. Our bodies are remarkable in their ability to shift naturally throughout these stages and Naturopathy can help by maintaining healthy hormones in each of these stages and supporting to rebalance hormones or other key areas of the woman’s health when the need arises. 

 

You see, it’s not just about hormones. 

What we eat, how we live, what we are exposed to, what stresses we are under, our genetics, our environment, and the function of body systems like digestion, thyroid, adrenals, immune and reproductive system can have a marked impact on how smoothly we make our way through the stages of life and what level of support we may need on the way.

How our Womens Health Naturopath can help you

Hormones and the reproductive cycle are complex. They are ever changing and impacted by many things. Nicole is an experienced women’s health Naturopath that can help guide you through the steps to improved hormonal and reproductive health. 

We begin with a consultation to understand you, your health, your health history, current symptoms and concerns, and delve into your diet, lifestyle and any other factors that could be playing a role in your condition, hormonal imbalance or limiting your ability to reach your health goals. 

 

You see, we want to help you to understand any underlying cause to your health concerns because when we do that we can help to identify and remove those barriers to optimise treatment so that you achieve lasting health and balance. 

 

Our Naturopath hormone specialist then creates a personalised treatment plan that is based on our unique set of needs. None of us are the same so no treatment is the same – treatments are tailored using natural treatments, dietary modifications, herbal medicines, lifestyle and environmental advice.  

 

  • Nutritional Support

The business of hormones and reproductive health is highly reliant on adequate nutrients being available in the body. Whilst diet is crucial, we also consider any medications, poor digestive function or absorption, stress and adrenal function, environmental factors, and lifestyle factors. 

 

  • Herbal Medicine

The traditional use of botanical medicines has provided us with an excellent framework of effective solutions to hormonal and reproductive health. With modern research we have a deep understanding of how our natural and herbal medicines can be used effectively for both acute and chronic hormonal, reproductive and women’s health issues. 

 

Nicole is an experienced medical herbalist who can blend together the art of tradition and science in the bespoke herbal tonics she prepares for each individual. Whether it be period pain, absent cycles, heavy periods, acne, ovarian support or preparing for pregnancy, IVF or birth Nicole can tailor herbal support that takes into account any current medications you take to provide safe and effective solutions to hormonal and reproductive concerns.

 

Testing can provide us with specific information regarding your health and hormones which can be beneficial in understanding underlying causes, tailoring of a treatment plan and tracking progress. 

 

Our Female hormone specialist can offer a range of testing depending on needs, requirements and budget. Some of the testing that can be useful includes:

  • DUTCH Hormone Panel  - this is a comprehensive evaluation of adrenal and reproductive hormones. It provides insight into how stress is affecting your hormones and system, how much of the key hormones (DHEA, Estrogen Progesterone, and testosterone) you are producing but also crucially, what your body is doing with those hormones. By looking at not only the hormones but also their downstream metabolites we can apply individualised support to help you feel better faster. 

 

  • Salivary Hormone testing – looking at major reproductive or stress hormones via Salivary testing at key time points across your cycle or outside of a regular cycle can help provide important information about your hormone balance and what Naturopathic support you will require. 

 

  • Serum Blood testing – available through our Naturopath women’s health specialist to consider hormones, nutrients and other key areas of hormonal and women’s health.

 

  • DNA Genomic Analysis (DNA Grow baby) – a testing option for those wanting to conceive or mothers to be looking at nutritional & lifestyle genetic variants to help to identify maternal health risks, providing key information to tailor diet and lifestyle interventions to help to optimise health outcomes for mother and baby. 

 

  • Thyroid Hormone testing – the Thyroid gland is your master regulator and has a large role to play in your hormonal, reproductive and fertility health. Testing can be arranged to discover how well your thyroid gland is functioning allowing us to pinpoint any key areas that require support in order to bring back balance to your body.

Can we help with Menopause?

When approaching Menopause, it’s even more important to assess your adrenal health and stress response as this can greatly impact how smoothly the transition can go, but equally important is understanding where you’re hormones are at so we can support you in maintaining balance throughout a time when lowered hormones or hormonal fluctuations can occur. 

As an experienced Naturopath for Menopause, Nicole has guided countless women through this important stage in life helping with symptom relief as well as improving vitality and outlook.
