Naturopathic Solutions For PMS
PMS, or pre-menstrual syndrome, is a set of symptoms that emerge in the time period leading up to a woman’s period.
There’s a long list of symptoms associated with PMS, but some of the more common ones include:
- Mood swings
- Digestive issues
- Appetite changes
- Difficulty concentrating
If you experience these types of symptoms associated with your period, you may have just gotten used to them or assumed they were normal. And though it is normal to experience mild versions of these symptoms, if it’s severe enough that they impact your lifestyle, we can help.
There are a number of different causes of PMS symptoms. Whatever it is that’s causing yours, your naturopathic doctor from Annex Naturopathic will work to find out. From there, you’ll get a personalized treatment plan designed to address those causes, with the goal of relieving your PMS symptoms for good.
Naturopathic Solutions For PCOS
PCOS stands for polycystic ovary syndrome. It’s a hormonal condition where your body generally produces more testosterone and other androgens, which can lead to a number of different health issues.
Some of the symptoms of PCOS include:
- Infrequent or absent periods
- Heavier flow than normal
- Increase in facial and body hair
- Hair loss resembling male pattern baldness
If you relate to any of the above symptoms, you may be dealing with PCOS. Annex Naturopathic has natural solutions available which can help.
Whatever the cause is of your symptom, your naturopathic doctor will work with you to uncover it. From there, you’ll get a personalized treatment plan designed around your specific health needs.
The goal is to solve the underlying problem causing your PCOS symptoms so you can get back to living the life you deserve.

Naturopathic Solutions For Endometriosis
Your endometrium is the lining of your uterus. It thickens, breaks down, and bleeds, causing the flow you experience during your period. This is perfectly normal.
However, sometimes your endometrium grows in areas where it shouldn’t, including your ovaries, fallopian tubes, and bladder. When this happens, it still behaves the way it would inside your uterus. Nut because your body has no way of expelling this, it can cause significant pain as well as other complications.
Some symptoms of endometriosis include:
- Painful periods
- Cramps lasting for several days before and after your period
- Lower back or abdominal pain
- Heavy flow
- Pain during bowel movements, urination, or sex
- Digestive difficulties
Period cramps aren’t uncommon, but if your cramps are debilitating enough to hold you back from doing the things you love, you may have endometriosis. This is a difficult disorder to live with, and its complications can be life-threatening if left long enough.
However, there are naturopathic treatments for endometriosis which may be effective in helping you manage your symptoms and get back to living a normal, healthy life.
Naturopathic Solutions For Women’s Infertility
Deciding to have children isn’t something most people take lightly. It’s a decision that affects the rest of your life, and there are a lot of emotions involved on both sides.
If you’re struggling to have children but aren’t able to, this can add even more stress to the situation.
However, this doesn’t mean you’re permanently unable to conceive.
There are a number of different health concerns that can leave you temporarily unable to bear children. These may include:
- Hormonal imbalance
- Being underweight
- Uterine fibroids
- Cervical dysplasia
- Fallopian irregularities
- Cervical mucus abnormalities
- Thyroid and/or endocrine disorders
- Autoimmune conditions
- And more
If you’re struggling to get pregnant, it’s possible one or more of the above issues are to blame. In that case, contact us at Annex Naturopathic.
We’ll work with you to discover the root cause behind your infertility, and provide you with a treatment plan designed to overcome those issues.
For those going through traditional fertility treatment, one of our naturopathic doctors can provide complementary treatments to help you achieve a more optimal outcome. By understanding your current treatment (IVF, IUI, etc), we can make sure any naturopathic support you receive won’t interfere with what you’re already doing.
Naturopathic Treatments For Pregnant Women
A pregnancy brings some serious changes to your body. This shouldn’t be a surprise.
Naturally, every new parent wants to give birth to a healthy, happy baby, and keep themselves healthy and safe while they’re doing it. However, there are a number of health concerns that can pop up during a pregnancy.
These range from minor inconveniences to potentially life-threatening, including:
- Nausea & vomiting (morning sickness)
- Gestational diabetes
- Varicose veins
- Edema and discomfort
Once you’ve given birth, as well, your body needs to heal itself, all while balancing these needs with the need to provide your new baby with healthy, nutritious breast milk.
Whether you’re trying to get pregnant, you’re currently pregnant, or you have a new baby, Annex Naturopathic can help. We’ll provide you with natural solutions designed to keep both your baby and you as healthy as possible, giving your child the best chance for a happy life.

Naturopathic Treatment For Yeast Infections
Just about every woman has experienced a yeast infection at some point in her life. It’s a fungal infection that isn’t life-threatening under normal circumstances, but it can be extremely uncomfortable and frustrating.
If you have the occasional yeast infection, you’re not alone. It’s generally nothing to be concerned with. However, if you have frequent or recurring yeast infections – more than 3 or 4 a year – there may be something deeper at work.
There are a few different types of yeast that can cause yeast infections, but the most common by far is Candida. If you’re experiencing a buildup of Candida bacteria in your body, it can cause your recurring yeast infections, as well as similar infections in your mouth, nails, or any other area where moisture can lay stagnant.
However, there are dietary and lifestyle changes you can make which will reduce the presence of Candida in your body, which may help you deal with your yeast infections.
Naturopathic Menopause Solutions
There is no cure for menopause, since it’s a consequential part of the aging process. It may be frustrating to deal with, but it’s a normal part of life for most women.
Menopause is related to hormones. As you approach the pre-menopausal age and experience your last few periods, your body responds by altering the rate at which it produces estrogen, progesterone, and other hormones. However, if you’re already dealing with a hormone imbalance, this can make menopause much worse than it needs to be.
Through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy and other naturopathic solutions, the naturopathic doctors at Annex Naturopathic can help you manage your menopausal symptoms, easing your transition and allowing you to continue enjoying your regular life.
