You are just one thought away from Joy and peace of mind

Sep 02, 2021

I offer Belief change work also referred to as conscious work or energy psychology.
The focus is to take your body out of a state of alarm (sympathetic mode) because when we are in the fight or flight mode our energy is mobilized for survival and our resources are not available for creativity, reproduction and healing.

From No Period to Positive Pregnancy Test

Aug 31, 2021

Lindsey, a 28 year old, came to me in March having suffered from amenorrhea (lack of menstruation) for nearly two years since she discontinued taking the birth control pill. She knew she wanted to eventually start trying to conceive and decided to come off the pill after having been on it for 10 years. When she did, however, her period never showed up.

I Had a C*V*D Baby

Aug 20, 2021

CW: pregnancy, childbirth, new baby, pandemic
Please note: This blog is about pregnancy, delivery and motherhood. For those currently trying to get pregnant, this blog could be be a trigger for you.
I am even more motivated now to do what I can within my naturopathic abilities (and our clinic's acupuncture and laser sessions) to help you optimize your fertility, whether TTC naturally or through IVF. I will have more blog posts specifically for those of you TTC (and I have lots posted on our site for you to read) during the coming weeks and months. I see a diverse group of patients at Acubalance: fertility, IVF, general gynecology, digestive and autoimmune health issues, migraines, anxiety, menopause, and pregnancy & postpartum to name a few. This blog is specific to those who are pregnant now or gave birth during the 2020/2021 pandemic.

Fertility Burn Out - Top Signs to Watch Out For

Jul 26, 2021
Going through fertility issues can be one of the most stressful times of a person's life. With our hectic schedules, most of my patients do have a level of chronic stress that they are dealing with. This isn't a problem until it becomes overwhelming. This often happens slowly without us knowing on a conscious level that we are losing the battle and heading towards fertility burn out.

Naturopathic Approach to Adult Acne

Jul 20, 2021

Acne can be a difficult condition to treat and can be hard on your mental health. You may find yourself spending hundreds of dollars on different skin products, facials, or other treatments, with little success. I find using a multifaceted approach can give the most success.

Your Gut, Your Health and Your Fertility

Jul 15, 2021

When it comes to overall health and your fertility, gut health is a big player in your success. Science has been stumbling upon more and more research supporting the importance of your gut microbiome in almost all aspects of your health. This theory has been around for over 2,500 years and as time goes on science has been showing how accurate this statement really is.

Tips Before Egg Freezing and How To Boost Your Fertility - A Podcast Interview

Jul 08, 2021

I recently had the pleasure of talking with a previous patient (Kristina Lao) about her experience going through an egg freezing cycle which she has posted to youtube. So many women go through an egg-freezing cycle in silence, alone and unsure of what the experience will be like.
