Niagara Naturopathic Healthy Hormones
Hormones play a critical role in our physical and emotional well-being. They are chemical messengers in our body that regulate more than just our reproductive health. At the Naturopathic Family Practice of Niagara, we understand the big picture and the importance of balancing ALL hormones. That’s why we look at the reproductive hormones, adrenal gland function, thyroid function and how they all connect with one another.
