Hormone Programs for Women
Women experience many phases in their menstrual life – from the onset of periods, through the childbearing years and into the transitions of menopause.
Dr. Deirdre O’Neill is accomplished at treating PMS, heavy bleeding, irregular periods, infertility and the menopausal symptoms of hot flashes.
Balance. For years, Dr. O’Neill has helped women achieve hormonal balance and symptomatic relief.
Many women accept their symptoms without understanding the characteristics of a normal balanced hormonal system and without discovering why their issues occur.
In naturopathic medicine, hormone support involves an in-depth approach to balance. This approach evaluates all factors that can affect hormonal health – from the pituitary gland to the ovaries and uterus; from the hormones of estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, thyroid and cortisol to the liver that processes these hormones.
Salivary or urinary hormone panels are often run to assess where the system is disrupted, which helps Dr. O’Neill tailor a program that best fits each patient.
Fertility. The natural medicine approach can help women with fertility problems and can also provide support throughout a pregnancy. Dr. O’Neill uses medicine proven to be safe and effective during the childbearing years, for both mother and infant.
Pregnancy. She has helped her pregnant patients find relief from morning sickness, hemorrhoids, fatigue, breastfeeding issues and postpartum depression. She can teach you the foundation of a healthy diet and answer questions about the health of your expectant newborn. She has a passion for breastfeeding and helping moms with a good latch and support the mother-babe dyad.
Menopause. The cessation of periods can bring with it many unwanted symptoms and increased risks to age related diseases. Dr. O'Neill can help you make informed choices along the way to help you feel your best without compromise. She is an expert in the use of bio-identical hormones.
You will receive a personalized treatment plan that can include dietary recommendations, homeopathic medicine, herbal medicine and/or bioidentical hormone replacement.
