Theresa Messano, ND, has recently joined the Merchantville Medical Wellness Center to help meet an increasing demand for natural, complementary and functional medicine in South Jersey. 

Messano primarily works with females that experience symptoms such as heavy, irregular or painful periods; premenstrual syndrome; fatigue; acne; weight gain/loss; hair loss; digestive issues; mood changes; and insomnia. Having struggled with hormonal imbalances herself, she is particularly passionate about helping adolescents during puberty, as well as women with perimenopause and menopause transitions and fertility issues. 

Messano addresses both the physical and mental/emotional factors of health. She uses nutrition, functional laboratory testing, dietary supplements, herbs and lifestyle counseling to create an individualized healthcare plan. Ultimately, she wants women to feel heard and be empowered with the knowledge they need to take charge of their health, so they can live their happiest and healthiest life, without limitations. 

Messano attended the University of Bridgeport, where she earned her doctorate of naturopathic medicine. She is a member of the New Jersey Association of Naturopathic Physicians and American Association of Naturopathic Physicians.
