Areas of Practice
Fatigue and Exhaustion
Our naturopathic doctors treat fatigue and exhaustion with a comprehensive and holistic approach. While thyroid dysfunction is a common cause, we examine lab results, diet, adrenal function, inflammation and more in order to obtain a complete picture for customized treatment. Life is busy and beautiful, you should not be dragged down by fatigue and exhaustion.
Sleep disturbances can be caused by a myriad of disorders. Excess stress, adrenal dysfunction, hormone dysregulation, thyroid disorders, and lifestyle choices can all attribute to endless nights of unrestful sleep. The naturopathic doctors at Urban Medicine are experts in pinpointing the reasons you struggle to sleep and will help you peacefully wind down at the end of the day.
Anxiety doesn't have to be treated with a pharmaceutical pill. We alleviate anxiety naturally so you feel like yourself again. Our naturopathic doctors are very well versed in a complete range of effective solutions. We provide personalized treatment plans that can include neurotransmitter testing, elimination of food sensitivities, supplement recommendations, and increased connection with nature. Our well-rounded approach does not just treat anxiety but restores balance, increases vitality and improves attitude.
Beyond basic diet and exercise, our naturopathic doctors can help you find the root causes of weight gain. Stress, hormones, and food sensitivities wreak havoc on the gastrointestinal tract, making it difficult to shed unwanted pounds and absorb vital nutrients. When we improve your overall well-being, you achieve proper processing, digestion, and weight management. The Urban Medicine naturopathic doctors receive over 400 hours of professional nutritional education and offer customized plans for weight loss and management.
Are you experiencing fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, constipation, and anxiety? These are common symptoms of thyroid dysfunction. The Urban Medicine naturopathic doctors offer diligent testing, pharmaceutical recommendations, and natural solutions with exceptional success rates. Thyroid dysfunction creates symptoms and serious stressors specific to your body; our naturopathic doctors build a holistic treatment plan to balance your thyroid levels and ease your specific symptoms.
Fertility, Menopause, Menstruation
Regardless of your phase in life, we can help you achieve your health goals. Naturopathic doctors at Urban Medicine offer trained expertise in hormone management and fertility. With a close examination of symptoms, lab results and menstrual history, doctors will be able to recommend a nutritional plan, identify stressors, advise on lifestyle factors, and offer bioidentical hormone replacement therapy. With a sophisticated and multi-faceted approach to women's health, our naturopathic doctors have helped many amazing women thrive.
