Rooted has a new PCOS tea blend

There are many different hormonal imbalances involved in Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome  (PCOS).  As such, different herbal blends work for different types of PCOS patients.

Dr. Whitney and Dr. Kerri show off their new PCOS tea at the Bridal Show.

Our tea blend is geared to those women with high androgens (high testosterone and high DHEA) which is what often causes the acne and hair growth.

Spearmint tea helps lower the DHEA, the total testosterone and free testosterone.

Green tea helps to increase the sex hormone-binding globulin which helps to mop up the extra testosterone.  Green tea has also been linked to a two-fold increase in fertility.

The studies to reduce the hormones were done over two months so don’t expect to drink just one cup every once in a while to see the changes.  Two cups per day is required for this therapeutic effect.

That said, it’s a tasty tea that can be enjoyed by anybody anytime.

PCOS blend is available at Simply Tea and Chocolate downtown Barrie and at Rooted Naturopathic Clinic

Is IV therapy right for me?

Kerri and I shot our second video with Carole from Sugar Productions this past Friday. We focused on IV therapy and had a room full of great people getting their IVs. The video isn’t ready yet but I wanted to share our sample script to show you all the ways we can help with IV therapy.

Intravenous Vitamin Therapy is an incredible option for our patients. IV therapy truly heals the body at the cellular level so we can get our patients feeling better faster while our other regular treatments start to work.

We bathe the cells in nutrients by bypassing the digestive system where we can lose some of that absorption. We can also get much higher doses of the vitamins in without causing all of the gastric upset.

The number of treatments you will need depends on your condition and how nutrient deficient you are. We will discuss your case during your appointment time prior to starting IV therapy.

IV therapy works exceptionally well for acute conditions like:

  • Headaches & Migraines
  • Cramps – either menstrual or muscle
  • Colds & flus
  • Post surgery wound healing.

It also works really well for things like

  • adrenal fatigue,
  • anxiety,
  • seasonal allergies

Many chronic diseases can also benefit:

  • Chronic fatigue
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Crohn’s & Collitis
  • Cancer
  • High blood pressure
  • Eating disorders
  • Asthma
  • Seasonal Allergies

Generally, almost every one can benefit from IV therapy. It is a rapid delivery of nutrients, fast acting, helps detoxification and energy. Essentially, IV therapy is a fast and effective way to jump start your body’s own healing mechanisms.

Come in for a free meet the doctor visit to see if IV therapy is right for you…


Our new welcome video

We had a great morning filming this a few weeks ago. We invited some of our favourite people to star in our short welcome video with us. Erin Smith, RMT (705) 796-1489 and her husband Guy and little Henry. We also had our good friend Trudy who works next door at Therapeutic Mobility. She’s the one getting acupuncture and cupping. Our video was shot by Carole who is a lovely local videographer. She was so fun to work with.
