Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy Treatments - Oakville
Dr. Townsend,ND often recommends Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy ( BHRT ) at her Burlington Ontario naturopathic clinic  to help patients through their menopausal years and beyond.  BHRT is a more natural type of hormonal support and is increasing in popularity as a safer substitute than traditional HRT.
Bio-identical hormones are created from plants and are identical to our own hormones that we produce in our bodies.  When our hormones decline with age we are at risk for osteoporosis,  alzheimers, cardiovascular disease, and mood disturbances.  By increasing these hormones in our bodies using  BHRT we slow down this aging process and decrease these risks.

is also very helpful for women who suffer more acutely from peri-menopausal and menopausal symptoms. These symptoms include hot flashes, night sweats, bloating, depression and anxiety, low libido, memory loss,  brain fog, irritability, heavy periods, and insomnia. Dr. Townsend,ND works together with a family physician in Burlington to prescribe BHRT when indicated.  Their integrative practice allows for a patient-centred approach where optimal well-being can be achieved.

Peri-Menopause and Menopause - Oakville
Dr. Townsend,ND also treats many women who suffer from peri-menopauseand menopausalsymptoms. Using saliva testing she is able to determine the amount of usable hormones a woman has in her tissues and the corresponding imbalances that occur in her menopausal years.  She specifically tests for 3 estrogen types, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA, and cortisol levels. All of these  hormones act in unison to create hormonal balance and the correction of these imbalances can have a huge impact on a women’s well-being. Treatments include nutritional and lifestyle  recommendations, supplements critical for supporting hormonal pathways, and herbs that support the production of hormones at the glandular level. Dr. Kim Townsend,ND treats patients from: Toronto, GTA,Oakville and Hamilton from her clinic Townsend Naturopathic in Burlington Ontario.

Digestive Disdorders - Oakville
Over the years Dr. Townsend,ND has seen an increase of patients at Townsend Naturopathic clinic  suffering from digestive disturbances such as gas, bloating, flatulence, heartburn, stomach painand acid reflux. She believes many of these patients suffer from a condition called leaky gut syndrome resulting from food allergies.  This syndrome occurs when a food allergen creates an inflammatory response in the digestive tract. The inflammation damages intestinal tissue which leads to the leaking of larger food molecules into the blood stream. The body does not recognize these larger undigested food particles and therefore further mounts an allergic response. Over time the body becomes allergic to more and more foods. Dr. Townsend,ND often recommends food intolerance testing through bloodwork to pinpoint food allergies. Her treatment plan focuses on the healing of the digestive tract through the elimination of these foods for a 3 month period.  Also important to her treatment program is her recommendation of anti-inflammatory nutrients and herbs, gut healing flora, and detoxification support.


Lyme Disease - Oakville
Lyme  disease is contracted predominantly through a tick bite that can create a cascade of symptoms. In the acute stage Lyme disease creates flu-like symptoms and is often, but not always, accompanied by a “bullseye rash”. When Lyme becomes more chronic it can mimic many disease processes as it attacks different systems of the body. There can be nervous system disorders, mood disturbances, hormonal imbalances, muscle and joint pain, and unexplained fatigue and malaise. Lyme disease is slowly becoming more recognized in Ontario as awareness increases and the population of ticks carrying Lyme disease escalates. Ticks are found in forested and grassy areas and often go unnoticed when hiking or playing in these environments.

Townsend Naturopathic Clinic  in Burlington Ontario
approaches Lyme disease treatment by using a number of different assessment tools. Dr. Townsend,ND uses a combination of electro-dermal screening, body point testing, and blood work to help decipher which organs are most affected. It is  often recommend a Nutritional Panel assess the specific vitamin and mineral deficiencies that arise from Lyme disease. She will also requisition Lyme specific bloodwork to better support a patients diagnosis.   Unfortunately, the blood test for Lyme Disease in Ontario is not always adequate to rule out Lyme Disease definitively.  Therefore, when Dr. Townsend,ND suspects this disease in a patient she sends bloodwork to IGeneX, a lab specializing in the diagnosis of Lyme Disease. IGeneX is one of the top labs in North America for detecting Lyme disease and its associated co-infections.

Dr. Townsend,ND uses specific and individualized herbal and nutrient combinations to support the body in fighting  Lyme disease. These unique combinations are important in building the immune system, supporting organ function, and fighting the bacterial and associated fungal issues. These treatments are often done in combination with antibiotic treatments prescribed by a Lyme specific MD.
