Seniors (>65 years old)

Aging gracefully

For many seniors, reaching age 65 is a major milestone and offers many perks including the opporunity to retire, seniors discounts on almost everything, more time to spend with family and friends or enjoying hobbies.  

 

This is also an important time to focus on aging gracefully, by minimizing symptoms and focusing on preventing new health concerns and illnesses.  To age gracefully it is important to maintain a health diet and lifestyle, exercise regularily, get enough sleep and spending time with family and friends. 

 

For some seniors this period of life can be stressful, especially if there are major health concerns.  Although most seniors are able to see a family doctor for most of these complaints, family doctors don't often have the time to educate people on their conditions, treatment options, medications side effects and interactions.  And often new symptoms or conditions can develop as a side effect of medications, which often goes unrealized for many years.

 

Dr. Michelle understands the importance of prevention, but is also able to address many conditions and symptoms, by developing an individualized treatment plan to assist seniors in enjoying their Golden years.  Naturopathic medicines can be tailored for seniors by using nutrition, lifestyle, botanical medicines, hydrotherapy, acupuncture and more.
