COMMONLY TREATED CONDITIONS
What Conditions can be treated?
Naturopathic Medicine encourages the body to literally heal itself. That is why all health conditions can be safely treated by a Naturopathic Doctor (ND), who is trained in using natural medicines.
Conventional medicine has a hard time curing digestive complaints, such as IBS, constipation, gas/bloating, reflux/heartburn, Chrones disease, ulcerative colitis, chronic diarrhea, stomach ulcers, and gall bladder dysfunction. The foundation of Naturopathic Medicine is built on a healthy digestive tract. ND’s have excellent results in treating the above-mentioned conditions.
Menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, depression, insomnia, fatigue, vaginal dryness, headaches, and low libido are due to fluctuating hormones. Naturopathic Doctors use botanical medicines to balance your hormones and get you back feeling like yourself again. ND’s may also use natural hormones if they are indicated. HRT is a very hot topic with regard to female cancers. You deserve to have ALL the current information presented to you in order for you to make an educated decision about hormone replacement therapy. My job is to ensure you leave my office with your questions regarding HRT answered.
Too many women today suffer from PMS unnecessarily. PMS is caused by hormones that are out of balance. Diet, exercise, stress, and genetics all contribute to female hormone levels. It is my job to discover which hormones are too high and too low and correct the imbalance. Hormonal imbalance can be easily corrected using botanicals and nutrient therapy.
Infertility is Dr. Dahl's main clinical focus. Successful outcomes are the "norm" at Living Water Natural Health. There are many components that contribute to achieving a healthy conception and pregnancy. ND's take into account immune function, ovulatory patterns, hormone function, nutrient deficiencies, and fertility awareness when addressing infertility. Preconception planning is the best way to ensure an easy conception and a healthy pregnancy. Women who detoxify before conceiving have considerably less nausea and vomiting in the first trimester compared with women who do not. It is worth it!
Allergies & Asthma
Allergies and asthma are very easy conditions to treat with natural medicine. It is possible to manipulate the diet in such a way that the body releases less histamine. Advanced testing methods are used to pinpoint allergic triggers and underlying factors, which allow us to eradicate allergies for good. It sounds too good to be true, but it works.
Do you experience an energy crash between 3-5 pm in the afternoon? If so, you may be suffering from adrenal burnout. The adrenal glands are responsible for releasing adrenalin when the body needs a “pick me up”. Specific toxins, stress, allergies and certain dietary patterns are responsible for draining the adrenal glands of adrenalin, which results in not enough available for your daily energy needs. Effective treatment aims at tonifing the adrenal glands so that the adrenalin stores are replenished. This results in a steady afternoon energy instead of a low.
Depression is becoming more and more prevalent in today’s society. Prozac is often handed out for complaints such as fatigue and chronic pain. Anti-depressants are simply a band-aid for underlying imbalances that need to be corrected. There are natural medicines available, which help the body to correct serotonin levels without side effects.
Many factors play into an autistic diagnosis. Naturopathic medicine seeks to identify the obstacles in the way of proper nervous system functioning. With proper drainage, the blockages are removed and with targeted remedies, the nervous system is rebooted. In many cases, the diagnosis of autism is removed from the child. This is an extremely rewarding area of practice and the results are life-altering for the entire family.
