Women’s health encompasses a wide range of conditions from general health to menopause. Some of these conditions are female specific and some are more commonly seen in women than men.
Hormonal imbalances can affect women from puberty in the shape of PCOS, PMS and menstrual irregularities, all the way to old age and menopause. Hormones need to metabolize and detoxify in your gut and liver for optimal function. Food, drinks, Xenoestrogens and stress affect hormonal balance.
Healthy pregnancy, smooth labour, and great post natal health is fundamental to building a healthy and happy family.
Pap tests are the fastest way to recognize changes on the uterus cervix and prevent cancerous cell development.

Anti-Aging, Cellulite Treatment, Weight Management and Weight Loss.
It is not always easy to look your best. Many people struggle with losing weight and having a healthy body composition. While many strive to look young, the main goal should revolve around overall health and well-being!
There are many reasons behind why people want to lose weight. In our modern society, the potential relation between obesity, and diabetes, heart disease or cancer is a red flag. Weight loss is more than cutting down calories and the number on the scale. It is all about eating nutrient-rich calories, and boosting your metabolism. Many underlying conditions such as hormonal imbalance, lack of activity, diabetes, heart disease, polycystic ovarian syndrome, stress, lack of sleep and emotional wellness contribute to weight gain and/or inability to lose weight in western society.
Naturopathic medicine can help you reach anti-aging and weight loss results. For instance, cellulites are very hard to treat and Mesotherapy is the only effective treatment. Dr. Z will inform you about the various Naturopathic approaches that can help to achieve your weight loss and anti-aging goals.
Acne , Eczema , Psoriasis
Skin health is important for total health. Skin is your largest organ and it is involved in excreting wastes via sweating. Your skin is responsible for protecting you from outside environment, cooling you down, and providing you with sensation of touch.
All skin imperfections like pimples and eczema are believed to be the result of body’s attempt to clean itself. Dr. Z believes that instead of applying creams to suppress symptoms, finding the root cause of the skin problem is the key. Poor nutrition, hormonal imbalances, lack of healthy bacteria in the body (probiotics), and food and chemical sensitivities can all contribute to skin conditions.
By addressing the root cause of your skin condition and supporting body’s cleaning system, Dr. Z will help you address many of your skin imperfections.
Graves’ Disease, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Hyperthyroidism, Hypothyroidism
The thyroid gland is part of our hormonal system that influences every organ, cell and tissue in the body. It helps set metabolism, control energy, manage fluid distribution, and set temperature tolerance. Thyroid disease, if left untreated, can lead to the following:
decreased immune response
elevated cholesterol levels
stress and adrenal fatigue
hair and skin conditions
Blood tests to monitor thyroid function are the best starting point to manage thyroid function. There are many occasions where people experience symptoms that may be related to their thyroid while lab test results are normal. In these occasions, Dr. Z would consider normal test results as subclinical thyroid problems, which if caught in time, would respond more effectively to treatments.
Being an important hormone producing gland in the body, thyroid needs a multi-faceted approach when being treated, which include:
Providing thyroid with its hormone building blocks
Addressing the immune system
