Women's Health and Naturopathic Medicine


More and more couples are experiencing difficulty becoming pregnant. A wide variety of factors can lead to infertility and Dr. Katie can assist you in discovering the underlying cause. Women were created to have babies, but some women need support in achieving pregnancy. Therefore, Dr. Katie helps couples increase their chances of becoming pregnant by using natural methods including dietary recommendations, cycle tracking, and herbal supplementation to support the body. Dr. Katie also believes it is important to make sure your body is ready for pregnancy, to ensure a healthy baby. Don’t forget about your guy either – 40% of infertility is due to male infertility. Dr. Katie can help you make sure your eggs are top quality, as well as his sperm.

Whether you are having fertility problems or thinking about becoming pregnant and would like to optimize your health for you and your baby, Dr. Katie can help.

A foresight study in England looked at couples with infertility and recurrent miscarriage. They began a basic preconception program consisting of an improved diet and a multivitamin. After two years, 89% had live births, no miscarriages, and no problems with the birth or children!


PCOS (polycystic ovarian syndrome)

PCOS is a prevalent condition that results in irregular menses, acne, hair growth, infertility, and elevated glucose levels. Dr. Katie offers testing for PCOS, but will also look at previous lab work. Traditional medical treatments often involve prescription medications or birth control that can have unwanted side effects. Treating your PCOS naturally is effective and safe. Dr. Katie will provide you with a regimen of diet and herbal remedies customized for you.

Menstrual Irregularities

Fibroids, endometriosis, amenorrhea, irregular periods, heavy periods, painful periods… these are common complaints that Dr. Katie can treat naturally by first uncovering the cause. Dr. Katie offers hormone testing via blood or saliva if needed. Herbs are often used to regulate the cycle.


PMS includes painful menses, irritability, bloating, acne, food cravings, fatigue, headache, etc. during the week before menses. There are many potential causes of PMS including elevated estrogen, sluggish liver, low nutrient levels, inflammation, or even food allergies. Schedule with Dr. Katie to feel better before your menses.


Did your mood or memory change? Did your metabolism shift? Are you having hot flashes or food cravings? Menopause is a normal stage of life, but it is also frustrating and uncomfortable at times. Dr. Katie uses several natural methods to reduce the difficult aspects of menopause.

Birth Control

Unsure which birth control is the best option for your body? Do you want to stop taking birth control in order to become pregnant? Do you have irregular menses following the cessation of hormonal contraceptives? Or are you having side effects from your oral contraceptives? Hormonal birth control can cause deficiencies in several nutrients resulting in fatigue and acne, and can also be taxing to the liver. Dr. Katie has worked with women who experience irregular menses and difficulty becoming pregnant after stopping birth control.
