Hi there, I’m Katie and I’m a Naturopathic Doctor with a special interest in thyroid conditions. I help women who have been struggling for months, years, (or decades!) regain their energy, confidence, and balance in life. My passion is helping others finally feel like themselves again, so they can get back to what truly matters.
WHY THE THYROID?
Shortly after starting my career as a Naturopathic Doctor, I realized that there is a thyroid epidemic going on. Synthroid (the medication givenfor people with low thyroid function) is the #1 most commonly prescribed medication in Canada. Not pain meds, not anti-depressants, not heartburn pills, Thyroid!
I can’t count the number of women who have come into my office with a similar story. It goes something like this: they were diagnosed with a thyroid disorder, told it was an easy fix, given medication, and went on their way. Many years later, these women continue to struggle with symptoms like fatigue, weight gain, chronic pain, digestive issues, low mood, and more. They’re told their thyroid levels are normal and to simply exercise and eat better, or offered other medications like antidepressants.
If this sounds familiar to you, let’s talk.
If you’re feeling frustrated, ignored, and looking for answers, you’re not alone.
When we start to work together we will do a thorough intake that covers your concerns in addition to any important health history, blood work, and physical exams. We may also start with some basic recommendations at this time. In 1-2 weeks we will meet again to go over findings and put a plan in place that works for you.
The thyroid is a complex hormonal organ, and most often the problem is not with the thyroid gland itself. As a Naturopathic Doctor my job is to get to the root of your concerns and provide you with a comprehensive plan to address your whole self.
In addition to thyroid conditions, I also enjoy working with many women’s health condition including other hormone imbalances, chronic stress, and fatigue. If you are looking for a deeper understanding to your health and are willing to take part in the process, I would love to meet you!
