In Alberta, naturopathic doctors (NDs) are not authorized to prescribe bioidentical hormones. Only licensed medical doctors (MDs), nurse practitioners (NPs), and other healthcare providers with prescribing authority can prescribe bioidentical hormones. However, having an integrative team at Red Leaf Wellness brings the best of both Eastern and Western medicine in support of whole body health. While NDs cannot prescribe BHRT, they play a crucial role in providing holistic and supportive care. Our unique combination of a functional medicine provider and a nurse practitioner ensures that you receive comprehensive care. This collaboration allows us to address not only your hormonal needs but also your overall well-being, creating a powerful and effective approach to health that very few BHRT providers offer.
