Women's health & Functional endocrinology
Have you been experiencing fatigue, exhaustion, irritability, hot flashes, insomnia, PMS, anxiety, infertility or old before your time? Have you heard from your doctor that you’re perfectly healthy, but you still feel like crap? Do you want a doctor that listens to your goals asks how they can best serve YOU? If so, Dr. Graser will be a great fit for you. Naturopathic doctors specialize in assessing your health from many perspectives including social and emotional health, areas that are often overlooked in standard practice.
Dr. Graser also offers adrenal salivary testing, serum and salivary hormone testing, food and environmental allergy testing, stool tests to assess digestive health and functional analysis of standard lab values, all of which may provide information about your health that has been missed.
Women’s health visits with Dr. Graser can include annual exams and pap smears, fertility enhancement and post-partum recovery, hormone-balancing for PCOS, menopause, PMS, as well as bio-identical hormone replacement. Dr. Graser also treats men and women with thyroid disorders, diabetes, adrenal and cortisol imbalance, offering the best modern medical science with alternative and natural therapies.
Naturopathic detoxification & Weight Loss
When you think of detoxification, do you think juice fasting? The master cleanse? Herbal supplement blends? Are you wanting to detox but not sure where to start? You’re in the right place. Each person has different genetic and environmental influences that impact their detoxification pathways. What works for one might not be appropriate for another.
Dr. Graser helps patients create plans to support their unique biochemistry and genetics. Detoxification and weight loss often go hand in hand, but whether or not it’s your goal, you will feel lighter, and more energetic by giving your detox systems a boost.
Many people have trouble losing weight for reasons beyond the obvious. It is not always about will power – sometimes it’s about managing your stress, balancing your hormones, finding the right combination of foods for YOU, even timing your meals in different ways. Dr. Graser provides a compassionate space to explore what has brought you to the point of seeking guidance for weight loss and supports your health with comprehensive, individualized treatment plans that address more than just calories in, calories out.
