Naturopathy at OMC
Naturopathy with Vera Martins, PhD, ND, MAMH
Affordable, Convenient & Accessible Naturopathy Appointments at the Online Menopause Centre (OMC)
Naturopathy plays a crucial role in peri/menopause as it provides holistic support (covering physical, mental and emotional wellbeing) at a critical life stage when several symptoms can manifest simultaneously. Through nutrition, lifestyle changes, supplements and herbal remedies, we are able to not only support the symptoms but also get to the root cause of the health issues. Naturopathy is also successfully used alongside HRT, further complementing it.
Once you have booked your Naturopathy Initial consultation online, you will receive a Naturopathy questionnaire where you will be asked specific questions about your health and lifestyle such as diet, gut health, sleep, and stress management. This will provide us with a solid understanding of your health picture ahead of the initial consultation, allowing us to focus on the main issue(s) and treatment plan on the day.
The Naturopathy questionnaire will need to be completed and returned to us before your Initial consultation with our Naturopath, Vera Martins. Please be aware that without the completed questionnaire we will not be able to proceed with the consultation.
We offer the option of performing functional testing such as:
Saliva cortisol daily pattern, comprehensive gut health assessment and DUTCH testing.
Functional testing, if appropriate, will be discussed during your initial Naturopathy consultation.
“I’d like to highly recommend Dr Vera Martins. She is an amazing, thoughtful naturopathy consultant. Due to my fatigue /mood challenges which I was not able to shift, I was seeking for an alternative way forward. The recommendations given by Dr Martins from change of diet/lifestyle to added supplements make such a difference. I now wake up before the alarm, feel not totally exhausted after a nights sleep and have more energy throughout the day. Five out of Five!!”

“Dr Vera Martins has been amazing in helping me feel better within myself again. She has provided super clear advice and direction, and with her help I have lost a significant amount of weight (over a stone in 8 weeks), am sleeping better, have a better and more consistent mood & emotions, and have reassurance on my overall health. Her advice has been super practical and easy to follow. I’m really grateful for Dr Vera’s support in helping me achieve my health goals.”
