My goal in working with women is to create a safe place for them to talk about their health issues and goals and to discuss a full range of treatment options from lifestyle and natural medicines to pharmaceutical options. I perform physical exams, including Pap smears and breast exams. Many women opt to have me perform their exams because they feel that the process is thorough and respectful.
Naturopathic medicine has a long history of excellent gynecological education for its physicians and many women’s health issues can be effectively treated with naturopathic protocols. As an ND who also has prescribing authority, I can discuss options such as bio-identical hormone therapy and oral contraceptives with my patients.
I look forward to working with you to address your health care needs and help you achieve optimal health.
Hot flashes are an understatement for what I had! Menopause hit me like a ton of bricks. I don’t know what I would have done if Dr. Macdonald hadn’t steered me in the right direction. My mother had breast cancer so I wasn’t going to take drugs for my symptoms. I found relief with balancing my hormones through herbs, lifestyle changes and a homeopathic remedy. Phew!

Just wanted to let you know how glad I am that I called upon you to help me with the horrible stressful HOT FLASHES! The medicines you gave me have helped quite a bit. I’ve only had occasional flashes the past week or two, and not the awful sweaty ones, or the ones that made my heart feel like it was racing etc. I haven’t been so tense and stressed as before either. So, thank you.
