Anxiety and Depression

Through the unique perspective of Naturopathy, emotional imbalances are better understood and treated within the context of the whole person. Clients experiencing symptoms such as depression, anxiety, mood disorders,  ADHD, often discover that their symptoms are caused or exasperated by nutritional deficiencies, gut /immune health, amino acid imbalances and hormonal imbalances.  Dr. Feinman has successfully treated clients using an integrated approach, providing customized nutrition and supplementation protocols, as well as experienced counseling and support to manage and optimize mental health.  Most importantly, She works closely and collaboratively with your health care professional to ensure that a “team approach” is deployed to achieve the best results and outcomes.

Hormonal Health

Hormonal imbalances affect both women and men. Women are especially susceptible at puberty, and mid-life.  Common hormones out of balance include; thyroid, adrenal, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, and dhea. Women are more susceptible to imbalances at puberty and especially mid-life.  Common hormonal imbalances for both men and women include thyroid, and cortisol(adrenals). For women estrogen and progesterone  imbalances can be seen with symptoms of   insomnia, weight gain, mood issues, hot flashes, and irregular bleeding. Most hormonal imbalances can be restored through lifestyle changes; optimal nutrients, supplemental support, herbs, and stress reduction. Imbalances for both women and men can be assessed through saliva, blood or urine testing.

Building Natural Immunity

The immune system is the foundation of good health.  When compromised, it can cause allergies, autoimmune issues, infections, viruses, degenerative diseases, and even cancer. These integrative approaches incorporate a variety of modalities to strengthen the immune system, the fundamental platform of good health.  You will learn the essential dietary and supplementation support to address immune deficiencies, as well as how to build a solid foundation of immune strength.

Chronic Fatigue

Chronic fatigue can often develop during or after an illness, due to hormonal imbalances, or after an extended period of emotional stress. This program provides an individualized approach to rebuild the body and restore energy through food, supplementation, sleep modification, restorative movement and emotional support.  Chronic Fatigue is considered one of the more “difficult to diagnose” illnesses, and will therefore be approached in the most individualized and integrative way, in close collaboration with the client.

Healthy Digestion

Proper digestion, immune system strength and reducing inflammation all work together in concert. Therefore, poor digestion, either through food sensitivities, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), Colitis, Lyme disease, Crohn’s disease or other autoimmune issues are significant obstacles to achieving optimal health. The Integrative Digestion Program focuses on removing the irritants causing these issues and replacing them with the nourishment that aids proper digestion.  Diet, supplementation and other healing modalities will be utilized to enhance the body’s own effective healing process.

Reducing Inflammation

Inflammation has long been recognized as a significant cause of disease. The inflammatory response in the body can impact the immune system, energy, digestion, and hormonal health. Integrative modalities, such as the “anti-inflammatory diet”, enzymatic and digestive therapies, as well as restorative yoga can help reduce the inflammatory response.  This program provides a comprehensive tool kit to reduce inflammation in the body, laying the groundwork for healing and optimal health.

Radiant Skin Health

Our skin is a window reflecting the state of our internal health.  It can also reveal food sensitivities, inflammation and hormonal imbalances.  As the largest organ of the body, our skin is a primary aid in the detoxification process.   This program will focus on optimizing the skin’s capacity to detoxify, providing the nourishment we need to address deficiencies. The goal of this program is to achieve greater beauty and wellness, from the inside out!
