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 […]

Spring Cleaning – The Healthy Way »

April 11, 2015

Since it’s Spring time, I want to talk about Spring cleaning for our bodies. Everybody is always shocked to find out how toxic all of us really are. They actually do cord blood studies to find out what’s in brand newborn babies. It’s shocking to know that the average baby born in this country has over 200 toxins at birth. Toxins are in our air, food and water. The most toxic environment is actually our […]

Caring for Your Liver and Gallbladder »

March 18, 2015

Let’s talk about a couple of amazing organs, your liver and your gallbladder. As Naturopathic doctors, we are really keen on the Chinese Medicine Principles. This philosophy sees every season of the year as relating to certain organ systems, and while it’s Springtime here in Encinitas, the coinciding organs are the liver and the gallbladder. These are very important organs, and they tend to get congested. We tend to experience a lot of strain and […]

This is a super fast-growing field of diseases that continues to get more and more attention within the medical community but the reason I love to talk about it is because I believe that naturopathic medicine, in particular, is primed to address the root causes and treatment solutions. Autoimmune disease is […]

Feeling Inflamed? »

February 18, 2015

Today we’re talking about a common issue that we see all the time at Bloom: Inflammation. While it has become a catch-phrase that we’re all hearing about lately in naturopathic medicine we have always known that inflammation is characteristically the root of disease and discomfort that is experienced in the body. Patients at Bloom often ask me: What is inflammation? Why does it occur? How can we fix it? As a naturopath I believe that […]

Get a Healthy Gut »

February 3, 2015

Today we are talking about our favorite system of the body: the gut. When we say “the gut” we mean all of the organs of digestion including our stomach, liver, gall bladder, small intestine, large intestine, pancreas…all of the major components that make up the middle of our bodies. And it’s funny because what we say in naturopathic medicine is that our gut really is the center of the universe for our entire body. But […]
