Low libido is a common complaint, and there are certainly a variety of possible causes—including fatigue, stress (though there may be a hormonal aspect to this, too—see below), pain or other chronic illness, relationship issues, body image issues, inhibitions, and past trauma. But most of the time when people bring [...]

Non-Hormonal Treatments for Hot Flashes

From Dr. Lauren Deville - Naturopathic Doctor

Women in early menopause or perimenopause are most familiar with hot flashes: they’re generally understood to occur with declining estrogen levels. Occasionally I’ll see a still-menstruating woman who experiences hot flashes in the week or two before her period (when estrogen levels are declining), too—though this is much less common. And yet, this isn’t the [...]

Glycemic Index vs Glycemic Load

Apple cider vinegar (ACV) is one of the most popular folk remedies I hear about in my practice, and for good reason. There’s some impressive research to back up its health claims. But first things first: definitions. Apple Cider Vinegar: Is It All Created Equal? Apple cider is basically unfiltered, unprocessed apple juice. It becomes [...]

Counting Macros

From Dr. Lauren Deville - Naturopathic Doctor

There are a lot of trendy diets out there (paleo, ketogenic, Whole 30, Autoimmune Protocol, GAPS, Specific Carbohydrate, etc). They all have their merits, and I do put people on each of them in specific cases.
