"I have been following the treatment plan we put together and have lost 8 pounds already, it's barely been 2 weeks! My energy is better, I don't need to nap and my sleep is great so I stopped taking Melatonin"
The Acubalance Team knows how to work hard and the video below shows you that we can also have fun.
Personally, I prefer to wait until my patient’s baby has been born before I share the story of their conception. It’s not so much superstition as much as, since we focus on the ‘Healthy Baby Approach’ and not just a pregnancy rate, I like to see the full cycle through before I share their story.
For woman suffering with polycystic ovarian syndrome, the road to parenthood can be a long and bumpy one. While that’s not always the case, PCOS having a complex and varied picture, some women struggle for years.

Endometriosis is a condition effecting millions of women giving rise to painful periods, irregular menstrual bleeding, infertility as well as many other debilitating symptoms. Treatment options are generally limited to pain medications, birth control pill or surgery which generally are not good options when trying to conceive.
It’s no secret that as we age, the reproductive potential of women decreases – the fertility cycle becomes more irregular the closer we get to menopause, in all female mammals including humans. Some new research is shedding light (literally) on how light-dark cycles (think the sun and moon phases in each 24-hour period) may be a major driver of these changes.
We treat many couples going through the difficulties of infertility. Most if not all are feeling frustrated and exhausted from this process. I am extremely happy to be able to work with these couples offering solutions, clarification and stress reduction. This is a unique skill set combined together for our patients here at Acubalance. We are able to combine western medical treatments with Chinese Medicine along with Naturopathic therapies.
You probably have never thought that energy drinks were the greatest health food on the planet. Most of us inherently know that any food or drink that’s neon-coloured is probably not on your naturopathic doctor’s top ten list. You may have heard that drinking way too many energy drinks can cause heart attacks or sudden cardiac death. But what you may not know is how bad even a single energy drink can be for you.
