How we spend our days is, of course, how we spend our lives.
— Annie Dillard

When it comes to women's health, we must take a closer look at the hormones.  Balancing the hormones is akin to riding the waves on ever changing sea. Change is constant and the goal is not to reach a fixed state of balance, but with flexibility and dexterity, to morph ourselves to rise and fall in a dynamic dance with our ever-fluctuating hormonal environment.  

This dynamic balance is possible for each of us.

Rather than be cast about widely from one extreme to another, my approach helps you align with your unique tendency toward balance to move through life with energy, purpose and confidence. Mood swings, premenstrual symptoms, debilitating cramps, hot flushes and night sweats, extreme dryness, irritability, depression and low libido are just a few of the symptoms commonly linked to hormonal imbalances. 

Lifestyle and nutrition are powerful methods to balance the hormones. Yet, with so much information at your fingertips, how do you know what foods, exercise and habits are best for you?  

In my practice, I blend ancient healing concepts rooted in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM). In my East Lansing office, I often work in coordination with the doctors so that you get a truly comprehensive and holistic approach to healing. It must be said, however, that as with anything that truly works of heals the body, there is no quick fix. Lifestyle and dietary modifications are the surest way to resolve chronic issues. Just like our fast paced modern world has introduced the need for the "slow food movement" or "slow parenting", there is also a place for "slow medicine". That is what I have to share with you. *Please be aware that I am not a medical doctor, nor do I claim to cure, treat or diagnose disease. 

My goal is to get beneath the cause of your symptoms, which ultimately is the source of sustainable healing.
