FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH
If your hormones are out of balance it can result in a number of health issues including irregular and painful periods, acne, mood swings, insomnia, cravings, low energy, headaches and infertility.
Hormone imbalance can be caused by a number of factors ranging from diet and lifestyle, inherited genetic traits, medications, stress and environmental toxins.
Diet and lifestyle changes in combination with a natural medicine approach can be extremely effective in treating conditions such as PMS, PCOS, amenorrhea, metrorrhagia, endometriosis and cystitis.

DIGESTIVE HEALTH &
Digestive complaints such as constipation, IBS, bloating, abdominal pain, haemorrhoids, heartburn and reflux are related to poor gut health. Gut health also influences your mood, weight, appetite and immune system.
Gut health is impacted by environmental pollutions, medications, poor sleep, stress and a diet high in processed foods.
Healing your gut requires a protocol to repair the mucosal lining of the digestive system, enhance digestive function and balance good bacteria.
Cardiovascular disease is not just a disease of high cholesterol and elevated blood pressure. We now know atherosclerosis progression is influenced by nutritional deficiencies, systemic inflammation, oxidative stress, poor gut health, immune dysfunction and infections, together with poor diet and lifestyle choices.
Dietary and lifestyle interventions along with nutritional supplementation and addressing any underlying body system dysregulation can result in improved heart health, protecting the heart and blood vessels and improving blood viscosity to reduce your risk of cardiovascular disease.
Chronic skin conditions such as dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, acne and rosacea can result from poor gut health, hormonal imbalance, immune dysregulation, allergies, nutrient deficiencies and diet and lifestyle choices.
Dietary and lifestyle changes in conjunction with herbal medicine and supplementation can restore optimal body function and resolve chronic skin conditions with both an internal and external approach resulting in healthy glowing skin.
The average age for menopause is 51, but the hormonal changes leading up to menopause, known as peri-menopausal, can begin ten years earlier.
Many women struggle with peri-menopause symptoms which result from changing hormonal levels. Symptoms may include irregular periods, weight gain, mood changes, hot flushes, night sweats, anxiety, breast pain, joint pain, insomnia and headaches.
By balancing hormones, reducing stress, making dietary changes and improving your sleep the transition to menopause can be blissfully uneventful.
