Celiac disease is a subject close to Dr. Martin’s heart because she was diagnosed with it at 19 and through research and work with diet and other aspects of life, has come to a healthier place. This journey inspired her to become a naturopathic doctor.
Celiac is an inherited autoimmune condition that causes damage to the small intestine, leading to difficulties with digestion and malabsorption of nutrients. When you have celiac, your immune system reacts to the gluten protein by attacking the tissue of the small intestine. Dr. Martin offers treatments to improve the health of your small intestine, increase nutrient absorption, and support your immune system. She will also help you transition to a gluten-free lifestyle with ease.
Dr. Martin is passionate about supporting digestive health and has experience with a variety of digestive conditions, such as irritable bowel syndrome, celiac disease, gastroesophageal reflux disease, ulcerative colitis, and Crohn’s disease. She also works with many patients who haven’t received a specific diagnosis but experience digestive symptoms, including bloating, constipation, abdominal pain, or diarrhea.
Dr. Martin takes a holistic approach to your healthcare and recognizes that digestion can affect your mood, skin, hormones, immune system, and so much more. In her practice, Dr. Martin will help you identify and address the underlying causes of your symptoms, optimize your digestion, ensure proper nutrient absorption, and promote a healthy gut flora.
Dr. Martin is passionate about supporting you and your partner to feel empowered in this exciting time in your life. She understands that you want the best for your baby and can help you and your baby achieve optimal health right from the beginning. There are many common pregnancy concerns that can be easily addressed with naturopathic medicine, as well as future postpartum, infant and childhood concerns that can be prevented with proper prenatal health.
Once your child is born, visit Dr. Martin for well-child visits and feel confident that you’re making the best choices for your child in terms of nutrition, immune support, physical and mental development, and overall wellness. Promote long-term health by creating healthy diet and lifestyle habits for your entire family from the beginning of your child’s life.
