Self Assessment

At the Young Naturopathic Center for Wellness, we aim to support you in taking a proactive approach to your physical health, mental wellness and longevity.

One way we do this is through our comprehensive Optimal Wellness Check that allows us to “see” how the 12 systems of your body are working. But even before you pay a visit to our office, you can start painting a picture of your health with our self-assessments. These short questionnaires can help you explore your symptoms and gain initial insight into what you may need to enjoy optimal wellness.

Remember, these assessments are just a starting point. They are the first step down a path of open communication with a qualified healthcare provider who can provide a diagnosis and treatment options.

Chronic Fatigue

Is it hard to fall asleep at night, even though you feel exhausted? Are you waking up tired and struggling to pull yourself out of bed? Do you notice lack of sleep affecting other areas of your life, like your memory or mood?

Adults need at least seven to eight hours of sleep each night to be well rested, yet the average adult sleeps for less than seven hours per night. If you are tired all the time, you could be suffering from chronic fatigue or a sleep disorder. Research shows promising results for a variety of treatment methods, including nutritional, psychological and physical approaches. You deserve quality sleep that supports your quality of life.

Cognitive Health

Do you find it difficult to remember things like names or planned events? Do you struggle to maintain attention on the task at hand? Do you repeat the same stories or questions, or have trouble following conversations?

A healthy brain can perform the mental processes that are collectively known as cognition, including judgment, intuition, remembering, language and the ability to learn new things. Brain health can be affected by age-related changes, injuries, mood disorders and medical conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease. While some factors that affect brain health are beyond your control, there are lifestyle changes that can make a difference.

Heart Health

Are you experiencing irregular heartbeats or discomfort in your chest? Do you get winded during simple activities like climbing stairs or carrying groceries to and from your car? Have you noticed changes in the color of your skin or fingernails?

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States. Unfortunately, there are not always clear warning signs of poor heart health. Heart disease may be “silent” and go diagnosed until a serious adverse event occurs. A heart-healthy lifestyle starts with understanding your risk factors and creating a personalized plan to reduce or manage them.

Immune Health

Do you frequently suffer from colds, flus, stomach bugs or infections? Do you often feel fatigued or achy? Are you under a lot of stress or working in an environment that exposes you to harmful chemicals?

A strong immune system is integral to your well-being. By taking steps to support healthy immune function, you lower your risks of getting sick seasonally and developing serious illnesses, while increasing the likelihood that you remain active and strong into your golden years. If you regularly feel unwell, our doctors can identify the underlying causes and help you to get on a path to feeling great again.

Mood / Mental Health

When is the last time you truly felt like yourself? How often do you wake up feeling “blah” or struggle to stay focused on tasks? Have you lost interest in having a social life or engaging in activities you used to love?

Until relatively recently in the history of medicine, mood was a misunderstood and overlooked aspect of overall health and wellness. At the Young Naturopathic Center for Wellness, our team has extensive experience in diagnosing the underlying causes of exhaustion, anxiety and depression. Don’t ignore what your body is telling you.

Musculoskeletal / Aches and Pains

Does it feel like you rarely wake up without pain these days? Do you struggle to engage in activities you love — or even to perform daily tasks? Have you gained weight due to mobility limitations?

Your musculoskeletal system is the foundation that supports your posture and allows for movement. As such a critical component of the human body, any disruptions in this delicate system of bones, muscles, ligaments and tendons can dramatically reduce your quality of life. Our doctors utilize naturopathic techniques to provide relief from aches and pains and restore your comfort and mobility.

Sexual Health – Women

Has your libido suddenly tanked? Are vaginal dryness and/or pain during sex putting a damper on your intimate life? Are you fighting hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings and bizarre cravings?

The root of good sexual health and healthy aging is the right balance of hormones. For women, the main culprit for sudden hormonal changes is menopause. Our doctors at the Young Naturopathic Center for Wellness have a lot of experience helping women diagnose and hormonal issues so they can enjoy a satisfying sex life at any age.

Sexual Health – Men

Are you struggling to maintain muscle mass or slim down your “dad bod”? Have you noticed a dip in sexual desire (libido) or difficulty engaging in sexual activity (erectile function)? Is it getting harder to manage your mood, stay focused or sleep well?

Hormones have an incredible impact on your body and your quality of life. Just like women, men go through a period in mid-life (called andropause) when their hormone levels drop. This can not only affect your sexual vitality, but also your mental health, cognitive function, sleep cycles and more. Our doctors can create an action plan to lessen the effects of hormonal imbalances.

Stomach / Digestion

Are you frequently bloated, gassy or uncomfortable after meals? Do you experience bouts of diarrhea, constipation or unusual stools? How often do you have bad breath or lose your appetite inexplicably?

Digestive disturbances can occur for myriad reasons, including food allergies, food intolerances or a poor diet. The resulting discomfort can feel like your norm, but it doesn’t have to be. Our team can help you identify any digestive or dietary issues and design a meal plan that supports optimal health and comfort for your unique body.

Thyroid Problems

Do you suspect an underactive metabolism is wreaking havoc on your weight loss goals? Are you experiencing fluctuations in your mood? Do you sometimes struggle to get out of bed because you feel fatigued?

These symptoms can be signs of an issue with your thyroid, a hormone-producing gland located in the front of your neck. When your thyroid makes too much (hyperthyroidism) or too little (hypothyroidism) of these hormones, you can experience disruptions in many vital functions of your body. Fortunately, most thyroid problems can be managed if properly diagnosed and treated.

Weight Gain
