About Natural Med Doc

Identify, Treat, and Eliminate.

Many patients reach out to us due to their frustrations with conventional medical doctors and pharmaceutical treatments. For our patients going through perimenopause and menopause we provide an alternative to general practitioners, gynecologist or obstetrician, and endocrinologist with long wait times and cookie-cutter, unpersonalized care that doesn’t address the root causes.

Dr. Springhetti was so patient and kind at my appointments! She was very thorough when she went through my labs. The detail and examples helped me to understand not only what they meant but what I can do to make them better.I asked a lot of questions about supplements, nutrition, lifestyle, etc. and she was patient, understanding and helpful! At the conclusion of my appointment I had a plan of action to take home with me.As a result of my visit and the suggestions from Dr. Springhetti and I find that I have more energy in the morning. I have reduced some of my supplements (yay!), and my focus is better through the day. Thank you!I look forward to my next visit with Dr. Springhetti!
Love the staff here. I am a different person for the better because of their expertise!
Dr. Ibarra is a great listener and has a wonderful bedside manner. She genuinely wants to help her patients to improve their health concerns.
Dr. Ibarra is amazing. She listens to what I have to say. She's always positive even when I didn't do my best. She's always there to help guide me in the right direction. She helped me with my PCOS when conventional doctors just always wanted to "fix" it with birth control not looking for why I was having prolonged periods or missing periods and actually solve the problems. Within 10 months I found out I'm expecting my first baby at 35. Without her help in getting my body healthier I believe this would have never happened. The office staff is always super friendly, sweet, and helpful. Thank you all 💗
I love this place they are so helpful and amazing at detail!!!
Dr. Springhetti is so kind, personable, and informative. She thoroughly explained my blood work, included notes and diagrams on my labs (for my convenience), and she provided me with a treatment plan that felt doable. She answered all of my questions and addressed all of my health concerns.She showed me how my hormones and thyroid impact my body and mind. She never offered or tried to talk me into going on birth control to regulate my hormones or tried to prescribe me something that only masked my health concerns.Her treatment plan was outlined in a way that would work with my current lifestyle with important changes that I could make without having to drastically change my life. She gave me her opinion on which supplements, medications, and lifestyle changes I should start now and which ones we could discuss implementing in the future, if needed.I really liked that she presented me with all of the information, gave her opinion on a treatment plan, and let me decide how much I could take on to start. She really tried to work with me on a treatment plan that will benefit me and would realistically stick.
I've been with NMD for a while now and feel like I am truly listened to. My latest labs are always meticulously explained. Plausible solutions and treatments are given to address my health concerns. My well being is their only concern. So what are you waiting for? Book an appointment and change your life!
I was very comfortable in my visit to Nat Med today. Dr. Richardson is very knowledgeable and covered everything.
Absolutely love Natural med doc! Everyone is so nice and the service is exceptional! Dr. Bennett is so nice and professional and is an amazing doctor!
I am so thankful I found natural med doctor when I did. I was at such a low point with my hormones as well as my energy level and my moods were not able to be kept to where I would like them. Also was having issues with my intimacy levels I didn't want to be touched or even cuddled. Since I have been with them for the last 9 months to a year it's all changed I can love a very fun enjoyable lifestyle with my little family. My hormones are stable my moods are stable and I'm able to enjoy every day that I wake up. Also, my intimacy levels with my spouse have changed and im able to cuddle and be more comfortable in my own skin now to be more romantic with my spouse! I would recommend this place to anyone who wants a more natural way of doing things and that are struggling with modern medicine.
I am very happy with how I feel and how drastically better my lab stats are now. My triclycerides were very high and within a short time they have come way down. Dr Bennett changed my thyroid meds so that I am taking much less, and I feel much better- no heart palpitations. Also, I am so less tired. Dr Bennett is so very nice and caring & most importantly knowledgeable and extremely helpful!!I will continue with this practice as the protocol is working!!

Perimenopause and Menopause Health Concerns

During menopause and the transitional phase known as perimenopause, a significant change occurs in a woman's hormone levels. Perimenopause, the phase leading up to menopause, can start as early as in your late 30s, however, symptoms often begin 8 to 10 years before menopause fully sets in. The first hormone to typically show a decrease during this phase is progesterone.

That's why, for many patients in their 40s, supporting progesterone levels becomes a key focus of their healthcare plan. This drop in progesterone particularly impacts the brain's GABA activity. As progesterone levels fall, GABA activity decreases, potentially making individuals more prone to anxiety, stress, and related symptoms like restlessness and sleep disturbances.

We offer comprehensive sex hormone testing (estradiol, estrone, progesterone, testosterone free and total) for women in this stage of their life.

Although conventional providers may attempt to run these labs they often do not understand how to read them much less how to optimize the lab values.

We offer bioidentical hormone replacement which is highly effective at clearing menopausal symptoms with a great safety profile compared to conventional providers who have less experience with hormone replacement and tend to offer commercial grade and synthetic hormones which yield lesser results with high side effect profiles.

Naturopathic medicine emphasizes prevention and supports the body's innate healing ability. This holistic, personalized approach to healthcare draws patients in search of a more natural and preventative approach to medical care.

What are the Benefits of a Naturopathic Approach to Menopause?

Utilize innovative, data-driven health services to assist you in attaining optimal well-being and detecting early signs of perimenopause and menopause symptoms with our natural doctors in Scottsdale.

For women with consistent monthly menstrual cycles, it is advisable to conduct sex hormone testing during the mid-luteal phase, which typically occurs approximately one week (around 5 to 7 days) after ovulation. In a 28-day menstrual cycle, this timeframe would typically fall on days 18, 19, 20, 21, or 22 (we adjust the timing of the blood work, tailored to your luteal phase peak).  During this phase, progesterone levels should reach their monthly peak, while estrogen should be at the height of its luteal plateau. We receive valuable insights into your cycle at this time and any imbalances in ovulation that may occur.

Natural Med Doc excels in formulating personalized treatment approaches for various issues, including thyroid disorders, hormonal imbalances, obesity, PCOS, IBS, menopause, and more.

Our experienced naturopathic doctors can tackle the symptoms of these health complications, such as hot flashes and night sweats, irregular menstrual cycles, mood swings, sleep disturbances, vaginal dryness and discomfort, fatigue, weight gain, changes in libido, urinary changes, and cognitive changes.

At our clinic, reaching peak health and mitigating these symptoms is a seamless experience. We adeptly craft a tailor-made treatment plan that accommodates your unique requirements and everyday habits.

FAQs

Most frequent questions and answers

What is menopause?

Menopause is a natural biological process that marks the end of a woman's menstrual cycles and fertility. It usually occurs in the late 40s or early 50s.

What are the common symptoms of menopause?

Common symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, irregular menstrual cycles, mood swings, sleep disturbances, skin laxity, brain fog, vaginal dryness, changes in libido, and hair loss.

How long does menopause last?

The transition into menopause, known as perimenopause, can last several years. Once a woman has gone 12 consecutive months without a menstrual period, she is considered postmenopausal.

Can menopause be treated?

While menopause itself is a natural process and phase of life -not a condition that requires treatment- symptoms can be actively managed.  Non synthetic Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) and lifestyle changes are common approaches.

How can I manage hot flashes and night sweats?

Strategies include dressing in layers, staying cool, avoiding triggers like spicy foods, and practicing stress-reduction techniques.

Are there natural remedies for menopause symptoms?

Some women find relief from symptoms through natural remedies such as herbal supplements, dietary changes, and mindfulness practices which we recommend.  Non synthetic hormone replacement in conjunction with the above can provide further relief while also reducing risk of dementia, osteoarthritis, and cardiovascular disease commonly affecting individuals later in life.
