Dr. Attema, ND & Dr. waddy, ND
Dr. Rikst Attema, ND, MSc is a Naturopathic Physician who has been working at the Matraea Centre since it’s opening in 2011. Dr. Jenna Waddy, ND has joined the Centre in the past year and has been an invaluable addition to the practitioner team.
Dr. Attema and Dr. Waddy provide Naturopathic Care for the entire family and have special interests in women’s health including preconception care, fertility, recurrent miscarriages, prenatal and postpartum care.
Naturopathic medicine is a wonderful adjunct to midwifery care as we can use Naturopathic modalities to support common obstetrical complaints such as nausea and vomiting in pregnancy, insomnia, constipation and heart burn, yeast infections, gestational diabetes, prevention of preterm labour and preeclampsia, postpartum depression and more.
In Naturopathic medicine we use safe natural treatments including nutritional guidance and supplementation, herbs, physical medicine and more that are incorporated into a treatment plan tailored to the individual.
