Hormone Therapy

Hormone therapy is the delivery of a specific hormone into the body to decrease the intensity of certain menopause transition symptoms.

Movement Therapy

Overwhelming evidence shows that the state of health before menopause impacts the menopausal transition. That is why exercise therapy is important, regardless of what age you start.

Nutritional Therapy

Eating a balanced and healthy diet is crucial for overall health. It is also something we can completely control, so we can tailor our diet to meet any special needs we may have.

Naturopathic Therapy

Cannabis Therapy

Cannabis is no longer an illegal drug in Canada and in a growing number of other jurisdictions. Beyond its appeal as a recreational drug, cannabis has long been suggested to have many medicinal benefits and the ability to obtain it legally has changed the dynamics of its consumption. Separating fact from fiction about the benefits of cannabis use is challenging, especially in this current time of rapid change with respect to the status of cannabis – from illegal street drug to regulated, easily available substance for recreational and medicinal use. The claims of miraculous medicinal benefits are many, with few evidence-based studies to either prove or disprove the vast majority of these benefits.
