  • Balancing hormones: No matter what stage of life you are in, from teenagers to seniors, I can help you get your hormones in balance. Some common problems include: heavy bleeding, PMS, headaches, irregular periods, mood problems, night sweats, painful intercourse, emotional instability, as well as any other symptoms associated with menopause & perimenopause
  • Fertility: Transforming Infertility to Fertility: Finding the cause of Infertility is vital. I will give an assessment of you and your partner’s health to provide guidance on what steps need to be taken. I am also trained in Intra Uterine Injections (IUI’s) which are in the 6th stage of the IHC Fertility Program.
  • Incontinence: Stress incontinence (sneeze, cough or exercise induced leakage) although not talked about much, is a very common problem for women. I can provide you with 2 laser treatments that will stop the incontinence or significantly decrease the leakage.
  • Snoring/Sleep Apnea: Snoring can decrease our quality of sleep and also be disruptive for a family/or relationship. With 3 laser treatments snoring can be decreased by 50% or greater!
  • Weight loss: Weight gain can be caused by a number of factors. The first step is to identify the cause and then work together to correct the imbalance. Common causes are hypothyroid, adrenal fatigue, hormone deficiencies & imbalances, diet, lifestyle, emotional stress, high cortisol levels & blood sugar problems. I can help you choose which diet would be best taking all factors into consideration.
  • Fatigue: There are many causes of fatigue including adrenal fatigue and hypothyroid. Insomnia, hormones, food sensitivities, blood sugar imbalances and low B12 levels all contribute to fatigue.
  • Food allergies: I run blood tests and saliva tests to scientifically identify food sensitivities. I can also suggest elimination diets if testing is not desired.
  • Children’s health: Immune support, intestinal health, mood, hyperactivity, vaccine options, ear infections, eczema, and more.
  • Stomach and intestinal problems: A lot of “stomach” problems are actually caused by food sensitivities, which cause inflammation and “leaky gut”
  • Immune system: I can help you boost your immune system and help you get to the root of the problem
  • Skin problems: Skin problems such as acne and eczema are rarely treated just at the skin surface. They are often triggered by internal imbalances such as blood sugar problems, food sensitivities, hormones and toxicity.
  • Pain management: A pain-free, effective approach can include neural therapy (B12 injections and homeopathics) and acupuncture to release pain and trigger points.
  • Insomnia & sleep problems: I have many options to help you get a better sleep. These options range from serotonin support, acupuncture, lifestyle guidance, vitamin and mineral support, hormone testing, and relaxation exercises.
  • Pregnancy: I strive to start your baby out with optimal health and this starts in the womb. I will help you with your diet and lifestyle and safely support you with high quality vitamins and minerals to help you avoid any unwanted complications. If you are dealing with nausea, back pain, high blood pressure or other unwanted symptoms, I have several options to help you cope and feel better.
  • Detox: The world we live in is full of toxins. It is important to detect which toxins are high in your body and eliminate them safely and effectively. Some of the approaches I recommend are: chelating heavy metals, yearly detox plans, daily vitamin and mineral support and IV therapies.
  • Emotional stress and grief: Emotional stress and grief are a normal part of life. However, there are times in our lives where extra support is required. I can help you cope better via hormone balancing and support, neurotransmitter support, thought pattern counseling, homeopathic remedies, acupuncture, and vitamin and mineral support.
  • Depression & anxiety: Treating the cause is essential. Most people with anxiety/depression need some serotonin support. I can help boost your serotonin naturally. Food allergies and hormones can also play a role in depression
  • Stress reduction: Stress is all around us. How we cope with it has a direct impact on the quality of our lives. I can teach you relaxation techniques and help you get exercising again if you have stopped. I also offer acupuncture and meditation instruction.
  • Cancer prevention: My goal to is help support & balance your body to decrease risk of developing cancers. Also I provide yearly physicals, thermography & blood work that can help with early detection of some cancers. Regular follow ups are helpful to help monitor your body for changes also.
