Balanced After Birth Control

Balanced After Birth Control is a comprehensive program designed and guided by a naturopathic doctor to help women balance their hormones and improve their health after coming off of the birth control pill (or other hormonal contraceptives).

Who is this program for: Balanced After Birth Control is for women who are committed to themselves – they are committed to improving their health and hormone balance naturally, through lifestyle changes and natural therapies. This program is for the woman who knows she can take control of her health and her hormones, but just doesn’t know how. She doesn’t know where to start or who to trust. She needs a game plan. This woman is not interested in taking medications to mask her symptoms but instead wants to find true and lasting results by addressing the root causes of hormone imbalance after being on the pill.

Why this program: Dr. Bridget Casey, ND created this program because she genuinely wants to help women. She wants to support the many women who are not getting the help or information they desperately need, at a crucial time in their lives – their reproductive years. She’s been through this process herself and with many of her patients and has determined the necessary steps to reclaiming hormone balance after coming off hormonal contraceptives. The Balanced After Birth Control program was tailor-made by Dr. Bridget Casey, ND – an expert in natural medicine, hormone balance and healthy living. This program is for the women who are ready to achieve real and lasting hormone health.

About Dr. Bridget Casey, ND

Dr. Bridget Casey

Hi! I’m Dr. Bridget Casey, ND. I am a Naturopathic Doctor and the creator of Balanced After Birth Control. I absolutely love being a Naturopathic Doctor – it’s more than just a career to me, it is my lifestyle and my passion. I am slightly obsessed with hormones and helping women achieve balance in this area. I not only want to help women achieve wellness and vitality, but I also want to inspire them to enjoy life to the fullest.

I became a Naturopathic Doctor in order to help others achieve and maintain health in a sustainable way, using natural therapies and lifestyle changes. I discovered this medicine as part of my own health journey – including balancing my hormones after coming off the birth control pill – and was hooked immediately. A passion for natural medicine – and personal success using it – led to my desire to share this information with others looking for better health and well-being. I pride myself on being a well-rounded natural medicine practitioner, utilizing interventions such as herbal medicine, nutrition, homeopathy and lifestyle counseling.

My formal training includes a doctorate in naturopathic medicine, with honors, from the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, OR. I completed my residency in naturopathic family practice at Richmond Natural Medicine, in Richmond, VA. I also have additional training and certification in Applied Kinesiology (AK) from the International College of Applied Kinesiology (ICAK) and am trained in NET (Neuro-emotional Technique). I completed my undergraduate degree at Boston College in Boston, MA.

About Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) practice naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic medicine is a traditional style of medicine that is deeply rooted in both philosophy and practice. Naturopathic medicine is guided by the following principles:

  1. The body has an innate capability to heal itself and will do so when under the right conditions.
  2. Identifying and treating the root cause of disease is essential to long-term health.
  3. The doctor should teach his/her patients how to care for and heal themselves.
  4. The doctor should look at his/her patients from a holistic perspective, taking into account all aspects of the individual which contribute to health, including physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social and environmental health.
  5. Preventative medicine should be practiced, including encouragement of healthy living, in order to mitigate future health issues.
  6. Above all else, use the least-invasive therapies possible to achieve maximum healing and, with that, do no harm.

In their quest to help patients heal, Naturopathic Doctors will utilize various therapies, including lifestyle counseling such as addressing diet, exercise, sleep habits and stress management, along with natural interventions such as botanical medicine (herbs), nutritional supplements and homeopathic remedies. Depending on which state the ND is practicing in, he or she may also utilize additional therapies like physical medicine, IV therapy and pharmaceutical medicines, when necessary.

Naturopathic Doctors are trained as primary care physicians (PCPs) in a 4-year post-graduate medical school program. These programs are extensive, as they include learning not only the conventional methods of diagnosis and treatment, but also all the various ways to utilize natural medicine for health and healing. Upon graduation, many NDs will complete a residency in their area of interest. Some NDs choose to practice as PCPs, but most will practice in private clinics, practicing traditional naturopathic medicine as outlined above.
