  • auricular ear acupuncture

    Acupuncture is increasingly being used to treat problems of chemical dependency. Individuals addicted to opiates who underwent acupuncture anesthesia experienced a substantial reduction in the severity of their withdrawal symptoms.

  •  GI food

    The glycemic index or GI ranks carbohydrates according to their effect on blood glucose levels. The lower the GI, the slower the rise in blood glucose levels will be when the food is consumed. The effect may differ from person to person. It is recommended that people with pre-diabetes and diabetes have moderate amounts of carbohydrate and include high fibre foods that also have a low GI (not all high fibre foods have a low GI). Some research has shown that by eating a diet with a lower GI, people with diabetes can reduce their average blood glucose levels. This is important in reducing the risk of developing diabetes-related complications.

    Menopause describes the permanent cessation of ovarian function, which results in the cessation of ova release, uterine lining creation, and subsequent uterine lining shedding. Menopause typically occurs in women during their late 40s or early 50s, and signals the end of the fertile phase of a woman's life. Menopause is a change that every woman will experience if she lives long enough. Menopause is not a disease but many women reach it physically exhausted and their bodies are unable to cope with the changes that should naturally occur, hence take hormonal replacement therapy (HRT). 

  • adrenal exhaustion

    Adrenal exhaustion is the term used to describe the state when adrenal glands are exhausted and unable to produce adequate quantities of hormones, primarily the glucocorticoid cortisol, and adrenalin produced in the adrenal medulla. From a naturopathic perspective, all hormones are not made from thin air. Everything in the body requires nutritional precursors in the form of vitamins and minerals. Unlike doctors, naturopaths believe in insufficiency of nutritional precursors to these hormones due to poor diet, stress, chronic disease etc. This leads to the inability of the body to produce stress hormones resulting in adrenal exhaustion and symptoms thereof. Herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, dietary and lifestyle approaches can treat this condition naturally, without the use of pharmacological drugs.

  • hypothyroid

    Hypothyroidism is caused by insufficient production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland. Cretinism is a form of hypothyroidism found in infants. From a naturopathic perspective the causes of hypothyroidism are not only nutritional deficiencies of vitamin and mineral precursors to thyroid hormones but also due to environmental contaminants that inhibit thyroid hormone production. The 2 big ones are microplastic and fluoride. Herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, dietary and lifestyle approaches can treat the thyroid naturally, without the use of pharmacological drugs.

  • sperm and egg

    PCOS Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is one of the most common female endocrine disorders and is a leading causes of female infertility.
