Common conditions treated by Dr. Norris:
This is an area where conventional medicine is limited in treatment options. There is a plethora of effective ways to treat common conditions affecting women such as PMS, PMDD, endometriosis, PCOS, heavy cycles, chronic yeast infections, hormone imbalances, ovarian cysts, interstitial cystitis, thyroid disorders, vulvar pain, hair loss, etc with natural medicine.
Dr. Norris is able to write prescriptions medications, including thyroid medication, birth control, antibiotics, and more in the case she feels this is the better choice for treatment at this time. She is also well versed in the use of bio identical hormone replacement for the management of menopausal symptoms.
This is one of the areas where naturopathic medicine really outshines conventional treatments. Conventional treatment options for dermatological concerns often stop at topical or oral steroids, or worse: chemotherapeutics, and the only options offered are stronger and stronger medications. Dr. Norris has success offering natural treatment options for eczema, psoriasis, fungal skin infections, seborrheic dermatitis, acne, hair loss, unexplained rashes, and more.
Dr. Norris has a special interest in treating fertility concerns in men and women. She offers consults, and treatments, for fertility concerns, whether there is a known cause for infertility, unexplained infertility, or you are just preparing for conception. See Dr. Norris’ article on fertility at her blog for more information.
Dr. Norris enjoys treating patients with auto-immune and immunological concerns because there are generally poor choices for many of these conditions in conventional medicine. She has experience, and success, treating thyroid disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerative colitis, chronic mono (EBV, CMV), unexplained fatigue, allergies, chronic hives, and more.
Naturopathic medicine is a great choice for those looking to treat depression, anxiety, ADD/ADHD, etc. with natural treatment options. Dr. Norris has successfully helped ween patients off of psych meds and onto more natural options such as herbs/botanical medicine, amino acid supplements, nutritional changes, and using homeopathy. Please note that the timeframe, and safety, of weaning someone off of these medications is different for each person, but with commitment to the treatment plan most people are candidates for alternative treatment.
Dr. Norris offers safe and effective natural treatments for conditions including: IBS, diarrhea, constipation, acid reflux, ulcers, esophagitis, abdominal pain, gas, and autoimmune conditions such as ulcerative colitis and chrons disease.
