MY MISSION

MY MISSION: Transform your health 

So many people I know have accepted and choose to cope with not feeling well by taking medications to mask the symptoms. The problem is, not every ailment will scream to you in discomfort. Many are quieter changes that have taken place over months and years. It is and certainly can be a daunting task to take your health into your own hands with little training. That’s where I come in.

I’m on a mission to transform and optimize your health, quality of life and wellbeing!

As a naturopathic physician, I believe in using minimal intervention to restore health by addressing the root cause(s) of illness while strengthening the body’s innate healing ability in the prevention.  The current medical system is built around symptomatic and pharmaceutical oriented temporary solutions. Many seemingly complex illnesses share similar patterns and triggers. With limited collaborative management in healthcare providers, the missing yet fundamental components to wellness are often overlooked.  It is my job to solve your puzzles, dig into root causes, and guide your maladapted organs to regain vitality and wellness. 

I am specialized in using bio-identical hormones, nutrients and herbal medicine to modify age-related diseases especially neurocognitive related, such as dementiaAlzheimer’s disease, and others include:

  • Cardiovascular illness (hypertension, atherosclerosis, erectile dysfunction)
  • Environmental illness(heavy metal intoxication)
  • Digestive illness (acid reflux, leaky gut syndrome)
  • Lyme disease, CIRS (chronic inflammatory response syndrome)
  • Hormonal and endocrine imbalances (type II diabetes, menopause, andropause, obesity, and autoimmune diseases)

I am looking forward to helping you achieve a better you!

 

Best in health,

Dr. Monica Xu, ND

“I approached Dr. Monica because I had issues with missed and late periods (which later diagnosed as PCOS)..Dr. Monica helped me by getting my period perfectly on track within 3 months from my first visit. She also made a clear picture of the short and long term goal in her approach to get my hacky hormones in balance. I believe she is not afraid to take different approaches to help any issues that may arise along the way and with patience, there will be a greater chance to see amazing results!

My experience with Dr. Monica has been a great one that I will never forget. Its unfortunate that I wouldn’t be able to visit her anymore since shes moved, but I totally recommend her.
Thank you Monica!

“I went to see MONICA XU in the summer of 2017.
I had a terrible problem with my hair falling out.

Previously I had had a battery of tests by my doctor here in Hong Kong. It was discovered that I had very high arsenic levels.  My doctor suggested I undertake chelation to remove this heavy metal. This regime would take 6-9 months. An alarming length of time when my hair was getting terribly thin.

I then went to see Monica here in Hong Kong.
After due consideration she suggested I seek out ‘far infared sauna’ which would remove the heavy metals if taken regularly without the need for the chelation. And in a much shorter time frame.

As I had to go outside her practice to find this sauna – Monica kindly phoned the sauna business to confirm that this was the correct type of sauna. I have recently been tested and my 99.9 arsenic percentile has now reduced to 26.5 percentile –  I feel wonderful and my hair loss has stopped completely and my hair is regrowing wonderfully.

Monica was so kind and understanding.  She never tried to over prescribe. She was knowledge and always professional.

I would thoroughly recommend MONICA XU to anyone seeking an extremely knowledgeable naturopath – who also cares and understands!”
