The Busy Mom
Getting Mom’s healthy is one of our passions and driving forces at AWH because we understand that healthy Mom’s drive healthy communities. When you prioritize yourself you are not only going to feel better and have a better quality of life but you are teaching your children about healthy habits and establishing a legacy of health for your family. This carries into your children’s schools, your friends, coworkers and extended families. So don’t let Mom guilt prevent you from taking time for yourself, you are truly helping everyone in the process!
The Momma To Be
At AWH we focus not only on making babies, but helping you to make a healthy and happy baby! That is why we focus on preconception medicine. The goal here is to balance hormones, reduce inflammation, nourish your stress system, support metabolic hormones and boost nutrients. Planning to have a family can be a stressful and overwhelming time but we are here to support you through each and every step. For more information check out our Healthy Mom, Happy Baby program.
The Fertility Focused
Starting a family isn’t as simple as it is made out to be! If you are one of the 1 in 5 couples struggling to get pregnant then we are here to help. There are so many reasons that infertility rates are growing. Nutrient poor food, inflammation, genetic and epigenetic changes, long term hormonal contraception, decreasing sperm health, environmental toxins, infections, stress levels, hormonal imbalances, thyroid issues, immune system issues and much much more. We provide comprehensive testing to help you and your partner understand your specific fertility obstacles. Whether you are trying naturally or undergoing IUI or IVF we will customize a protocol to help you achieve the best outcomes.
The Professional Woman
High performing women need high performing health! How else could you get done what needs to be done in a day? (Coffee is not the answer to that question!) Although you may thrive in a go go go position with time your hormones, inflammation and energy levels may not. Many professional women that we see start to experience what Dr. Sarah likes to call the ‘itty bitty sh**y committee’ of symptoms. You may feel a little fatigue, a little bit bloated, then your mood changes, your period changes and wham, you don’t feel like yourself. We want you to feel and perform at your best, always, and we have a health plan to ensure that you do.
The Hustling Entrepreneur
The hustle is real! But is it sustainable? Burn out, and the hormonal chaos that comes with it, is a huge issue in the entrepreneurial community. This has led to a movement of not only seeking complementary healthcare to treat the symptoms of burn out, but even more so entrepreneurs are looking to prevent issues. Whether you call it biohacking or taking a functional approach to health, at AWH we are ready with advanced testing and professional grade supplementation.
The reality is health = productivity and productivity = money. Let us customize a plan to keep you at your best and to support your hustle!
The Frustrated Weight Watcher
Calories in, calories out. That is the answer to all weight loss struggles, right? NOT a chance! Our weight support program, modelled after Dr. Sarah’s book ‘Finally Lose It’, is an evidence based system to help you to understand your body and make empowered choices. Weight loss resistance is a hormonal issue, not a willpower issue! It is affected by your sleep, stress, circadian rhythm, digestive system, female sex hormones and insulin levels. We perform the testing you need to understand and personalize your plan so that you can achieve your goals.
Chronically exhausted? It must be your adrenals right? Not so fast! There are many commonly overlooked things that can play into your fatigue. Blood sugar dysregulation? Chronic inflammation? Chronic infections? Nutrient deficiencies? Digestive issues? Thyroid or hormone imbalances? All of these things need to be ruled out, or investigated in order to help you understand what is happening in your body. Integrative medicine shines in this area and our treatment programs can help you to get back to your energetic self!
The Thyroid Detective
There is truly nothing worse than being told that you are fine when intuitively you know something is not right in your body. Whether you have been diagnosed with a thyroid condition and still aren’t feeling yourself, or questioning if your thyroid function is behind your symptoms, we have support for you. Our team at AWH will order and review your labs thoroughly to ensure that you understand what they mean. We will also explain how your hormones, inflammation and metabolic system affect your thyroid function and can help to personalize your medications, supplements and nutrition to your specific needs.
