Natural approaches to hormone balancing at any stage in life can play a powerful role in helping to make those transitions smoother and more graceful. At Medical Institute of Integrative Wellness our doctors use a combination of diet and lifestyle modifications, botanical herbs and bioidentical hormones (the same molecular structure as the natural hormones our bodies make) to restore balance to the delicate hormonal system. We address hormone imbalances that include:
Reproductive Hormone Imbalance (PMS, fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS)
Preconception Counselling and Fertility
Perimenopause and Menopause Support
Naturopathic Women’s Health
As Director of Women’s Health at Medical Institute of Integrative Wellness, Dr Fareen Koorjee offers specific women’s health services such as annual clinical breast exams, PAP and gynecological exams. Her care is nurturing, open-minded and supportive, and her depth of experience in natural approaches to treating women’s health provides a layer of care that is truly unique.
In addition to facilitating adjunctive care such as routine mammograms, we advocate for new and cutting edge, less invasive breast screening technologies such as Sonocine, a breast ultrasound that uses no harmful radiation or squeezing of the breast tissue, is often able to find cancers at an earlier stage and is FDA approved for women with dense breast tissue.
We use the most scientifically advanced and natural nutrient therapies to address the underlying health imbalances that keep our patients tied to pharmaceutical medications. The approach is stepwise and uses natural alternatives to help wean our patients off of the pharmaceuticals and move them to more natural yet highly effective alternatives.
Cancer and Supportive Therapies
They say that our skin is a window to what is happening in our gastrointestinal tract. Skin lesions and rashes are directly related to our digestion.
These are the skin conditions we treat:
Telangiectasia/Broken Blood Vessels
Genital Herpes lesions
Weight loss can be so multifactorial. There generally isn’t just one thing causing it. So often with stubborn weight loss it isn’t just about diet and exercise. It is important to take a systemic or whole body approach to addressing the weight. There can be deeper things to consider: hormone imbalance (adrenal/cortisol, thyroid hormones, reproductive hormones, insulin, hormones that affect appetite), toxin burden and xenoestrogens, emunctories and organs of elimination, inflammation and leaky gut, health of our microbiome, and mental/emotional causes. We will work with you to uncover and figure out at a deeper level what is keeping you from reaching your weight goals.
The detoxification pathways in our bodies are exposed to both external (from our environment) and internal (wastes and toxins produced by poor digestion) toxins. When toxin burdens build in the body, they challenge our body’s detoxification mechanisms, put stress on our bodies, create imbalance and symptoms of fatigue and general feelings of being unwell, stress our ability to repair and regenerate, create inflammation, accelerate aging and the start of chronic disease. Our doctors will help you not only avoid toxins, both internal and external, but strengthen your body’s ability to withstand them.
When it comes to addressing health issues for our male patients, our focus is an evidence-based, integrative approach that puts focus on preventing the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in men, including cardiovascular disease, urologic disease, cancer, and sexual dysfunction. Our comprehensive laboratory testing and in-depth health history allow a more thorough investigation into each man’s individual risks so that we can focus on building health to reduce personal health risks.
Medical Mystery Resolution
At Medical Institute of Integrative Wellness we often see patients who come to us after seeing multiple medical specialists (gastroenterologists, endocrinologists, cardiologists, neurologists etc) and are without resolution of their symptoms or an understanding of why this is happening for them.
Our doctors listen, really listen, investigate thoroughly and look at the full picture of how the body functions as a whole. We ask why. Why is this happening for this person. We investigate the underlying root cause of illness, remove the obstacles to cure and treat the body from a holistic perspective addressing each of our patients as individuals with different constitutions, imbalances and life circumstances. Taking this different perspective and approach to care for our patients has allowed us to better understand and answer some of these more difficult and stubborn medical dilemmas.
IV and Injection Therapies
IV and injection therapies of nutrients have become a medically recognized and clinically effective option for optimizing the balance of body and mind. At Medical Institute of Integrative Wellness we use the most natural and clean clinical nutrients, customized by your doctor to fit your body’s individual needs. These high-quality nutrients are infused directly into the blood stream so that they are able to quickly reach and target the cells and tissues that most need their support, repleting the body’s depleted nutrient stores, maximizing the body’s ability to heal itself and optimizing wellness.
We offer the following IV and Injection Therapies:
Calm and Focus
High dose vitamin C
Eastern and Western Body Therapies
Marma Point Therapy
Marma Point Therapy is performed by gently stimulating marma points on the body with dry needles. It stimulates the energy of the internal organs bringing them, over time, into their original state of homeostasis. It does this by increasing nervous system elasticity and increasing our body’s capacity to manage stress and anxiety. It relaxes and eases tense muscles and damaged soft tissue throughout the body.
Cupping Therapy is an ancient form of alternative medicine (Chinese and Middle Eastern) in which a therapist puts special cups on the skin to create suction. The suction pulls blood to the area, draws lymph through its vessels, stimulates nerve flow and moves energy throughout the body. It increases circulation, moves stagnation, promotes detoxification and brings nutrients to the cells that need it.
Constitutional Hydrotherapy is a treatment that combines hot and cold towel applications to the chest, abdomen and back causing a dilation and constriction of blood vessels that stimulates the pumping of blood through the vital organs. This enhances the delivery of oxygen and nutrients, supports the elimination of metabolic wastes and environmental toxins, upregulates the body’s immune system by stimulating cells in the abdominal lymphatic tissue, heals digestive issues by enhancing proper peristaltic function of the digestive tract and relaxes and calms the entire autonomic nervous system. It strengthens our vitality and reinforces our resiliency and supports our ability to adapt to physical and mental /emotional stressors by gently supporting the body’s powerful, innate ability to heal itself.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy
Manual Lymphatic Drainage Therapy is a gentle touch, medical massage that flushes the lymphatic system, detoxifies interstitial tissue, and reduces swelling associated with inflammation. It can also be used to contour the body and minimize the appearance of cellulite.
Infra-Red Sauna Therapy
Infra-Red Sauna Therapy has been shown, in clinical research, to mobilize lipophilic toxins (heavy metals and chemical toxicants) from fat cells. The waves from an infrared sauna cause a gentle increase in core body temperature which triggers a sweat response. Toxins released from fat cells are transferred in our sweat through the skin and out of the body. Infrared waves also trigger the release of nitric oxide from the endothelial lining of our blood vessels and enhance blood flow throughout the body. The waves support immune system production of T-cells, boost metabolism and trigger the release of endorphins.
