Dr. Amy supports patients to transition into better health naturally so they can be the best version of themselves. She believes that when people are their best self, they can achieve far greater - limits are surpassed and the world benefits small and large.
I'm a minimalist. I adore elephants. I investigate health. Anticipating a family. World traveler.
Describe your role as a naturopath...
Naturopathic doctor is the general term used and refers to a health practitioner who supports your "innate" healing ability of your body and addresses the underlying cause of your symptoms in order to restore, improve, maintain health.
In lighter terms, I often refer to myself and my purpose as a health detective; a transformational health coach; a health cheerleader; an in-depth no-nonsense opinion and a privileged soul who enters softly into people's health story and life.
What are your top 5 most treated health concerns/goals in the past month?
Burnout. Everything hormones. Pregnancy care. Pediatric colds. Digestion.
Your most common or most favourite health concern and why?
Everything hormones! Hormones are like a different language - a secret code that requires hours of inspired learning. Once you can speak that language, understanding and treating hormonal imbalances can be simplified and supportive steps can be outlined clearly. The goal is to support patients to achieve balance and to feel like themselves again, like they can love their hormones again.
In terms of "everything hormones", what are some examples of hormone cases?
1. Burnout - a feeling that you just can't manage anymore, lacking that pep in your step.
2. Weight loss - hormones can absolutely dictate where fat "sits" on your body.
3. Sluggish thyroid - blood work might show "normal" but your symptoms say differently.
4. Fertility - zooming in on how your hormones "work" and optimizing conception
What are 3 future aspirations?
To live in a yurt or tiny home (unfortunately, the husband is not on board...yet)
To team up with midwifery clinics/patients.
To have a family and health practice...and maintain an ebb and flow of balance
How has your education or past experiences contributed to your clinical skills?
When I review patient cases or brainstorm steps to healing, my automatic thoughts have always been natural health solutions first. I am wired to think naturopathically - due to the fact that I was raised in a holistic world where my primary care giver was a naturopath and my mother was a naturopath at heart. We also lived on a small self-succifient farm and the laws of nature were understood/respected. With being naturopathically-wired, any continuing education courses/conferences are my "wood to my fire".
Are you accepting new patients?
Yes, absolutely! I would be happy to be of support to you (and the people you love).
