Natural Health Solutions for Autoimmune Disease, Digestive Health, Hormone Imbalances & Mental Health

Here's the truth, ladies...

Conventional health care has failed women. It is a system designed by men, for men. It does not honor, respect, or provide for the unique needs of women. It does not respect the wisdom of our body. It does not acknowledge that healing happens in many different ways. And it does not honor our power in our health and our lives.

Have you experienced this?

Has your doctor ever cut you off while you were talking?

Does your doctor dismiss your concerns, chalking them up to age, stress, or depression?

Has your doctor ever rolled their eyes at you?

Has your doctor told you that "you're fine" after your labs come back "normal"?

Has your doctor tried to brush you off with a prescription for an antidepressant when you continue to express your concerns?

you are not alone.

I hear these stories everyday from my patients and it breaks my heart. True healing requires empathy and compassion. It requires humility and grace, both from the doctor and the patient. Conventional care does not value or make space for these qualities. Because conventional care is not about healing & health or even about caring for people. It is about illness, authority, and profit.   

We don't need "health care". We need health empowerment.

  • We don't need a 10 minute appointment that ends abruptly. We need time to share our story, to voice our fears and concerns, and to ask our questions. We need our doctor to listen. We need to be heard and seen as a human beings.
  • We don't need someone to make decisions for us. We are completely capable of making our own decisions. We need someone who will listen, educate, empower, and guide us in our decisions.
  • We don't need our symptoms taken care of with a pill. We need to fix the real issue behind our symptoms so we never have to suffer again.
  • We don't need another prescription. We need something natural. Something that works with the body instead of against it. Something that will restore balance and harmony, not cause further problems down the road.
I just can’t say enough great things about Dr. Carly. I’ve struggled for the last 10 years with hypothyroidism, constantly going to my MD to figure out why I feel so lousy when I’m taking levothyroxine. Only to have him tell me that I need antidepressants. Which I’ve tried before with no success. I’m so happy I found Dr. Carly. She has gotten to the bottom of my health issues. My family is so happy to see me feeling like my old self. My energy is increasing and my friends tell me that I look like I’m glowing and that my eyes look clearer. Dr. Carly truly cares for her patients. I feel so lucky to have her as my doctor.

The BioAdaptive Medicine Experience

long appointments

Appointments last 60+ minutes so you have time to share your story over a cup of tea. So we have time to explore the real cause of your concerns. So we have time to discuss important things like nutrition, exercise, stress, and even more important things like your needs, wants, and goals for your care. And so we have time to decide together what your treatment will be.

compassionate support

In between visits, I am only a few key strokes away. Unlike most doctors, I keep myself accessible over email so you can ask questions, voice concerns, or share struggles and triumphs. Also unlike most doctors, I don't just ask, I require that you communicate honestly and openly about all aspects of your care. If you feel like I misunderstood your concerns, I want to know. If you are not happy with this supplement or that dietary recommendation, I want to know. If you don't agree with me, I want to know. We are a team. My job is to walk alongside you and guide you on this journey and I can't do that well if I don't know everything about the terrain.

Education, Inspiration, & Empowerment

My mission is to teach you to be your own healer so 1) you will have the skills, tools, and knowledge to reclaim your life and health and 2) so you don't have to rely on health care, doctors (even me!), and medications to stay healthy. I don't deliver this through lectures and handouts during the visit. No. I have walked this path and I know that a handout doesn't cut it. That raw information isn't enough to make you eat more vegetables or start meditating. So I have put together a growing collection of online health workshops and trainings that walk you through strategies, tips, tricks, tools, and more so you can successfully implement your treatment plan. Because implementation is where the transformation and healing happen. And I don't leave you to struggle alone with this.

Meet Dr. Carly Polland, ND

I am a licensed naturopathic doctor who is on a mission to create a revolution in women's health care. I am fed up with how the medical system treats women so I am creating a new medical paradigm for women. And this new paradigm starts with the doctor showing up not as an authority figure in a white coat but as a real human being just like you.
