Why visit a naturopath?
RESTORE YOUR DIGESTIVE HEALTH
Dr. Gibson works with you to determine the cause of your digestive troubles. She targets your treatment plan so you can say goodbye to acid reflux, stomach pains, bloating, gas, IBS, constipation or diarrhea and get back to what you love!
MANAGE YOUR STRESS AND RENEW YOUR ENERGY
Our stress response is intimately connected with our energy levels through a powerful hormone called cortisol. Unchecked stress can lead to fatigue, disrupted sleep, weight gain, and flares of other conditions. Heightened stress can’t be avoided completely, but we can find ways to help you become more resilient so that stress works for you, not against you. Get back to restful sleep, regain energy to pursue adventure, and help control other health concerns!
Healthy bodies come in all shapes and sizes. While thin isn’t always healthy, carrying excess weight comes with considerable health risks including Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and joint pains. Losing weight provides substantial overall health benefits: increased energy, improved heart health and blood sugar regulation, improved mood, and better sleep. Tall Tree’s 12-week medically-supervised weight loss program combines lab testing to identify any obstacles to weight loss, an individualized diet plan, maintainable lifestyle changes, regular check-ins with Dr. Gibson for accountability and support, and vitamin injections to boost fat breakdown.
BALANCE YOUR THYROID
The thyroid is the gas pedal of the body; this gland in your neck releases thyroid hormone which controls the rate of activity in all the cells of your body. There are many factors – lifestyle, dietary, and nutrient needs – involved in regulating your thyroid. A thorough thyroid assessment using a comprehensive blood test gives insight into which naturopathic treatments will best balance your thyroid to restore your energy, sleep, and metabolism.
Experience HASSLE-FREE PERIODS
Painful periods are common, but they’re not normal. If your hormones are balanced and there are no underlying physical issues in the reproductive organs, your period should be free of cramping, bloating, moodiness, acne, etc. Sound too good to be true? It’s likely something is disrupting your reproductive health. While many naturopathic supports can help relieve painful period cramps or reduce PMS, Dr. Gibson will get to the root of the issue.
RENEW YOUR MUSCLE AND JOINT HEALTH
Naturopathic treatments such as nutritional counselling, acupuncture, professional quality supplements, and injection therapies help relieve your pain and promote the proper function of your body’s repair mechanisms. Ultimately, these treatments provide reduced pain and stiffness, and improved mobility to get you back to what you love.
