Women's Hormones & Naturopath Support

I’ve got 99 problems and my period ain’t one… or is it?
For a lot of women, periods are awful, they can be painful, and irregular or women can feel like are switching between Dr Jekyl and Mr Hyde with crazy PMS, coupled with boob pain and outbreaks. It’s really not how you want to spend a week or two out of each month.

What if I told you… it doesn’t need to be this way? I am not even kidding!

For a lot of women we just put up with it, or if you have popped into your GP to question WTF is up with your period, often the solution is the pill, to mask what is going on so you then need to deal with it at a later date, which, is far from ideal! As a Naturopath specialising in women’s health, Lindsay can help balance your hormones and improve your health!

Periods should rock up, each month, your version of regular somewhere between 26-35ish days, a consistent pain-free moderate bleed, no breast tenderness no PMS no mood changes. That is how your period should be! It shouldn’t disrupt your everyday life or have you running for pain relief.

Naturopathy balances hormones by getting to the root cause, not just masking the issue. We dig deep to understand what hormones are out of balance.

Key Types of Women's Hormonal Support

1. Nutrition Support For Women's Hormones

Thankfully there is a lot of research into nutrition and hormones.

Naturopathy utilises some very safe and effective nutrition therapy to support progesterone, healthy levels of testosterone and metabolism of estrogen.

It’s not just about supplements, we look at what you eat – you are what you eat right? We look at foods that can be driving your concerns, inhibiting your health and look to reduce these while adding in foods we know improve ovulation, menstrual and healthy hormone levels. We create a food plan that fits into your life, that feels easy and not restrictive.

2. Herbal Medicine For Hormonal Support

Naturopath

Herbs can address every driver and symptom, yes they may taste gross, but what they lack in taste they make up for in their action.

Herbs impact every body system and work beautifully together, they can assist to balance hormones, get the bowels moving, and reduce anxiety to name a few.

IT IS ALL ABOUT YOU AND YOUR OVERALL HEALTH!

As a Women’s Naturopath, it’s about your entire health, what is your immune system like, how is your digestion, how well are you sleeping, and do you manage stress and reset after your day. While we will improve your hormones we will also improve your overall health.
