Therapeutic Prescribing

BHRT ERFA NDT hormone prescribing progesterone thyroid

Naturopathic Doctors who have completed the Ontario Prescribing and Therapeutics Exam are authorized to therapeutically prescribe certain medications and nutrients.  I have completed these requirements and am authorized to therapeutically prescribe these medications.

I am able to prescribe Bio-identical hormones known as BHRT.  This includes topical and suppository forms of estrogen and natural progesterone.  Supplementary hormones can be used to help ease peri-menopausal hormones fluctuations including hot flushes, mood swings and vaginal dryness.  Progesterone can be prescribed when indicated to assist fertility, PMS, cycle related migraines, peri-menopausal symptoms and difficult menstrual cycles.  As a Naturopathic Doctor, I am also able to recommend many other non-hormonal options that can be used to balance hormones.

Naturopathic Doctors who have completed their prescribing exam are also able to prescribe certain thyroid medications including natural desiccated thyroid (NDT/ERFA).  Desiccated thyroid can be an effective medication in patients with hypothyroidism.

Completing this exam also authorizes prescribing NDs to recommend therapeutic doses of nutrients and B12 injections.
