A women’s health doctor who sees (and treats) the whole you.
Dr. Sara Norris is a Naturopathic Doctor specializing in women’s health services, hormonal balance, skin health, and more.
Why naturopathic medicine?
(and what even is that?)
You start seeking alternatives. Naturally!
Once you do, however, you often find yourself lost in an overwhelming cluster of conflicting advice, murky science, and a lack of compassion for the day-to-day realities of modern life.
A Naturopathic Doctor (ND) is trained at a federally accredited, 4-year post-graduate medical school. They receive training in the same medical sciences as an MD (pharmaceuticals, imaging, labs, etc.), with additional studies in herbal medicine, nutrition, counseling, homeopathy, and more.
My mission is to restore health and promote wellness in people using the safest, most effective, and least invasive therapies available.*
*By the way—I believe this knowledge should be accessible to ALL doctors, and I am actively working with both medical schools and the California legislature to make that a reality.
Instead of sending you to a different specialist for every aspect of your health or limiting you to a narrow, outdated version of women’s health, Naturopathic Medicine sees you as a single, whole being whose health is impacted by several intersecting forces.
In my virtual office, we’ll explore ALL the things, and put together a holistic treatment plan to bring you back into balance.
A doctor who sees (and treats) the whole picture.
My approach includes balancing your hormones, reducing inflammation, and getting down to the root causes.
You CAN reverse and treat this syndrome naturally without the use of medications, like birth control and metformin.
Treat and eliminate gastrointestinal symptoms of excessive gas, bloating, burping, acid reflux, diarrhea, or constipation.
Women seeking bioidentical hormones or more natural treatment options have come to the right place.
The key to treating fibroids naturally is the metabolism and modification of estrogen and progesterone.
Natural medicine can offer excellent benefits for your PMS or PMDD. There are many options to explore.
Despite the discouraging experiences you may have had in the past, your hormone-related health issues ARE TOTALLY TREATABLE.
The problem is that treating issues like PCOS, endometriosis, PMDD, and the hormone “combination platter”—gut issues + acne + cramps + fatigue + depression + brain fog—requires a holistic approach—an approach most gynecologists aren’t equipped to offer.
It’s not because they’re against a more holistic approach (usually). It’s just that the options available to them—and by extension, to you—are limited to what they know: birth control & pharmaceuticals.
*Both of those modalities have their place, by the way. I have plenty of patients who come to me on hormonal birth control, antidepressants, or other medications, and during our work together we agree that staying on those medications is the best way forward.
It’s just that there’s a lot of other things we can do, too. Things that regulate your hormones naturally. Things that you can do yourself, noninvasively. Things that address the underlying cause of “untreatable” conditions like PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, and mood issues.
Hint: reducing your stress levels? Probably going to be on the menu. 🤗
You need access to ALL of those options in order to make an informed decision about your health & your body. And that’s what I can help you explore.
A good doctor will welcome the addition of an expert (me) to co-manage your care and work with you to establish the best, most effective treatment plan. (If you don’t feel like your current doctor would be open to this, it might be time to look for a new doctor.)
Bottom line—I can treat what you have.
Be an informed, active participant in your own healthcare.
