Male Alopecia »

November 7, 2017

The month of November is male awareness month, also known as Movember. Time for all men to grow their amazing mustaches and raise awareness for all male health issues! With this in mind we would like to address the topic of male pattern baldness also known as androgenic alopecia, which is a condition that affects men both physically and emotionally. According to the American Hair loss Association, Male pattern baldness accounts for more than 95% […]

Enjoy Healthier Cocktails This Season »

December 22, 2015

Dr. Ward wants to remind you of her favorite and cleanest holiday cocktails. Because we love your livers here at Bloom, we encourage you to consider not going for the wine or beer. The high amounts of sugar in them, mixed with the alcohol content is extra hard on your liver detox system. Dr. Wards signature cocktail is silver patron and perrier with a squeeze of fresh lime. The low sugar and the clear distilled […]

Going Green with Juicing! »

December 15, 2015

Today I’m talking about something that I love…green juice! Juicing in general has become such a hot trend and I’m very excited about that because it’s such an easy way to bring a high amount of micronutrients into your body on a daily basis. Cold-pressed juices are my favorite because by compressing greens and veggies you’re literally extracting all of the minerals and nutrients and absorbing them straight into your body! When I juice at […]

My Skincare Regime »

November 18, 2015

Fun Fact: Our skin is the body’s largest organ and biggest barrier against infection. The skin of an average adult weighs 8-10 pounds and averages an area of about 22 square feet. Today we are talking about something super fun and that is skin care. I am slightly obsessed with a good skin care regime. I think it makes a huge difference, I always say that beauty truly comes from within because we must nourish […]

Men’s Health »

November 1, 2015

Can you believe it? We’re now preparing for the holidays! In honor of all the men out there who are growing facial hair in support of “Movember” and the Men’s Health awareness campaign, we wanted to address this very important topic from a Naturopathic perspective. Personally, I love to talk about prostate cancer and testicular cancer prevention – because I feel that men’s health is too often overlooked. Although many men are uncomfortable with the […]

Hydrochloric Acid and Digestion »

September 8, 2015

Hi I’m Dr. Amanda Ward from Bloom Natural Health, and today I’m going to talk about my favorite part of the body, the digestive tract. But more specifically, the stomach, which is the beginning of the digestive tract. Even more specifically, let’s talk about Hydrochloric Acid. This is something that comes up repeatedly when I’m working with patients and going through their lab work. What we’re seeing is that a lot of people are no […]

Adrenal Glands »

August 19, 2015

Hello, I’m Dr. Ward from Bloom Natural Health, and this is my Bloom Blog. Today I’m going to talk about the adrenal glands, which are very important walnut-sized glands that sit on top of each of our kidneys. These glands are responsible for so many important functions. Probably the most well known hormone that the adrenal glands produce is called cortisol, which is known as the stress response hormone, or our “fight-or-flight” hormone. We release […]

Balancing Your Blood Sugar for Balanced Moods and Energy! »

July 1, 2015

Dr. Ward considers blood sugar stability foundational to stable energy, a stable mood, and balanced hormones. You know you may have an issue with blood sugar if you’re feeling fatigued after meals, irritable in between meals, or if you’re frequently anxious or depressed. There is a complex cascade of hormones regulated by our pancreas, adrenals, and livers that work to maintain blood sugar balance. At Bloom, we look at the whole picture within your body […]

Probiotics »

May 6, 2015

Today we are talking about Probiotics. This is one of my favorite topics because we are obsessed with talking about the gut here at Bloom. As a naturopathic doctor, I always say that the gut is the center of the universe for your whole body. A crazy fact is that we have more bacteria in our body than we do human cells, which is totally insane! That means that all of the bacteria inside of […]

Testosterone for Women »

April 27, 2015

Hi I’m Dr. Amanda Ward, naturopathic doc here at Bloom. Today I want to chat about testosterone, but not for men, testosterone for women. I’m always shocked at how many people think that testosterone is just a male hormone, and yes, testosterone levels are much higher in men, but women really need testosterone, and it’s surprising how commonly we see it deficient in women. So, what is this hormone? It is classified as a steroid […]
