Dr. Gerber is welcoming another baby to her family! Maternity leave has begun and will likely extend until the end of April for current patients and end of May for new patient (assuming all goes according to plan, ha ha). See www.balancewestsidewellness.com for a list of the other WONDERFUL Naturopathic Doctors who will be covering for Dr. Gerber in her absence.
NO NEW PATIENTS--the time has past for new patients--no more new patients will be accepted by Dr. Gerber until she returns from maternity leave in the spring. Thank you.
Did you know?
Blood sugar disregulation is very common and it has serious health consequences, including diabetes, heart disease, infertility, obesity and more. Blood sugar disregulation can be combated by eating small, more frequent meals that contain protein/fiber/healthy fats, avoiding simple sugars and saturated fats, and by engaging in regular exercise.
I am offering more classes soon as well as other locations for naturopathic care. Keep checking this site for exciting developments.

"My family is fortunate to have Michelle not only as our daughter’s naturopathic pediatric care provider, but also as our midwife and family practitioner. Every single time we have to see or speak with Michelle for medical reasons, she provides us with empathetic, knowledgeable and diligent care and helps us weather the health challenges of a young family. Whenever we need her, Michelle is accessible (if not in person, than via email or phone) and her patience for my endless list of questions seems infinite. We already regret that we can’t take her with us once we’re moving back to Europe. In the meantime we’re grateful that Michelle, the midwife, once again will be taking care of us when we’re welcoming another bundle of joy to our family this summer."
