Women’s Health and Naturopathic Medicine

Drs. Mélanie Robinson, Alysha Somji, and Danielle Williamson are trained to treat hormonal imbalances, such as infertility, irregular periods, PMS, and menopause, and also provide prenatal and post-natal care.

Our clinic offers specialized saliva and urine hormone testing which allows the doctors to customize a treatment plan that is individually unique. When you visit our clinic, the doctor will spend considerable time taking a thorough case history for you. This helps determine exactly how your body is functioning to go past your symptoms and investigate the true cause of your problems. Once they have seen the whole picture of your health concerns, they can provide you with the guidance and support to eliminate your problems and return you to a state of health that you forgot was even possible.

It is this individual attention that makes our Naturopathic Doctors so effective at delivering quality healing results. As with all medical treatments, individual responses to treatment will vary, please be aware that results are not guaranteed. Whether you are trying to improve your diet or need help managing hot flashes, looking to a Naturopathic Doctor who is experienced in treating women’s health concerns will be a good first step on a path to long-term health.

For many women, the reproductive years can be filled with frustrations such as infertility, miscarriage, and health challenges related to pregnancy such as gestational diabetes and high blood pressure. Natural medicines, diet counselling, and lifestyle changes can dramatically improve your overall health to increase your chances of conceiving and experiencing a healthy pregnancy.

There is no need to put up with irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, ulcers, reflux and bloating or inflammatory bowel conditions. You can relieve the symptoms while correcting the underlying disorder with the guidance and advice offered by a Naturopathic Doctor.

Today, many women are looking to Naturopathic Doctors to help them with symptoms of menopause. A woman who is experiencing menopause may seek out more natural treatments, rather than taking prescription drugs to regulate hormones.

We can support your hormones and modulate your endocrine function to restore balance and minimize menopausal symptoms.

For all hormonal conditions, we offer saliva hormone testing that is more comprehensive than the standard blood tests for hormones. This allows us to customize a treatment plan that is individually unique and safe.

Women’s hormonal health is always a topic of interest among women of all ages. Why endure monthly pain, excessive bleeding and fluctuating emotions?

We can provide you with natural ways to balance your hormones and diminish these unpleasant symptoms.

Hormonal imbalances may point to medical issues such as poor nervous system health, a weight disorder or insulin resistance. Some hormonal health problems are also related to poor diet and lifestyle choices. As women get older, they also experience a variety of age-related conditions and issues.

1 to 4 million North Americans suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) and 80% of those are women!

Although there can be many causes of fatigue, the one constant is how deeply it impacts your quality of life. Our definition of fatigue is simply a lack of energy, drive or vigour you once owned. It may manifest as just an energy drop in the afternoon or it can be as debilitating as the lack of energy to get out of bed in the morning.

At Optimum Wellness our goal is to eliminate the issues that are causing the symptoms of fatigue and preventing the body’s immune system from functioning correctly.
