Menstruation should be struggle-free, period.

Dr. Melissa Bedford, Naturopath

You deserve to have your health concerns taken seriously.

You want to live your life fully – ace that presentation at work, have fun on that date, run that 10k, go on that camping trip – but your period is too painful, too heavy, too unpredictable. So you stay home.

This is not okay. You deserve better support.

Your health story matters.

You want to take action and do whatever you can to experience struggle-free periods. You just need some guidance. You need someone to give you time and a judgement-free space to tell your health story.

Let’s Get Started

I am here to listen to you.

This is a partnership. My job as a Naturopathic Doctor is to work WITH you to find long-term, sustainable solutions for your health.

I want you to feel powerful, adventurous, and confident all month long.
