Dr. Miranda LaBant, ND
Dr. Miranda LaBant, ND graduated from National University of Health Sciences in Illinois. After receiving her doctorate in naturopathic medicine she moved to Kailua Kona, Hawaii and completed a CNME accredited residency in integrative oncology under the direction of Dr. Michael Traub, ND.
Integrative and Individualized Primary care
Dr. LaBant’s practice combines the best of both naturopathic philosophy and conventional medicine to help her patients achieve and maintain optimal health safely and naturally.
She believes in the key principle of naturopathic medicine—the body has the innate ability to health and self-regulate when given the right direction. It is this mentality that she puts forth when working together with patients and empowering them to realize better health. Using clinical expertise and focused laboratory data, Dr. LaBant is determined to uncover the underlying factors contributing to illness and help patients re-establish health and function on all levels rather than just suppressing symptoms.
Integrative oncology includes well researched measures to increase the effectiveness of conventional therapies such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation while also reducing the incidence of common side effects. Dr. LaBant incorporates evidence-based natural therapies with the intention of improving the prognosis and quality of life of those with a cancer diagnosis.
Optimal digestion is vital to our health. Dr. LaBant treats a variety of digestive disorders including: Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), Small Intestinal Bacterial Overgrowth (SIBO), Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) – Crohn’s/Ulcerative colitis, leaky gut, celiac disease, food intolerances/sensitivities, food allergies and more.
Many patients suffer from digestive issues with seemingly benign symptoms like gas, bloating, heartburn, or changes in bowel habits. An impaired or damaged digestive tract can lead to many symptoms caused by inflammation, infections, build up of waste products and chronic stress. Dr. LaBant works diligently with patients to optimize and restore digestive health.
Endocrine Health and Hormone Balance
Dr. LaBant is also passionate about balancing hormones and optimizing metabolism. Stress, aging, and chronic conditions can all impact our hormones in dramatic ways – subtle and not always so subtle. An imbalance in hormones caused by a compromised endocrine system can produce symptoms ranging from panic disorder, depression, brain fog, fatigue, and much more.
Whether dealing with a thyroid condition, preparing to bring a healthy child into the world, or transitioning into the wise menopausal years, Dr. LaBant is happy to work with you to meet your goals.
Dr. LaBant utilizes individualized nutrition, targeted supplementation, intravenous nutrient therapy, botanical medicine, classical and complex homeopathy, gentle biotherapeutic drainage, and lifestyle approaches to help patients reach their goals and achieve optimal wellness.
When not seeing patients, Miranda can be found exploring and hiking the many landscapes of New England, weight training, or cooking up nutrient dense and delicious meals for friends and family.
