About Naturopathy

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathic medicine is a form of primary health care that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of healing.  The profession is built on a patient-centred approach that emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that support the body’s natural ability to heal and help the patient achieve sustainable health and wellness.

What are the benefits?

Naturopathic doctors are trained to see symptoms that your body is revealing and understand that it is a source of communication that signifies an imbalance, requiring attention. The aim is to discover the cause of the issue. When you treat the source, the symptoms treat themselves.

What to expect during a treatment?

Please schedule an appointment so we can get to know each other. During this initial visit, we will talk about your medical history and any current wellness concerns; together, we will review your concerns with a systematic approach to help identify your health goals. Depending on your needs, a complaint-oriented physical exam may be completed to better understand your well-being goals.

Our uniquely prescribed treatment plans are customized with a patient-centered approach that will address any health concerns and assist you in meeting wellness goals. We aim for long-lasting results through sustainable changes in lifestyle with treatments that will encourage your body to heal itself, assisted by naturopathic therapies like botanical medicine, professional grade supplements, homeopathy, and/or counseling. Your personalized treatment also includes a diet consultation to better utilize food as nutritional input to your total well-being.

Our goal is to help you with a healthcare treatment that will increase holistic health throughout your lifetime. We will assess your success and new/past concerns at follow up consultations to ensure you are still on track to achieve your wellness goals. For 30-40 minutes, we will discuss and monitor treatment plans and review additional testing.

We understand that our patients often have busy schedules. If follow up consults are difficult to schedule in person, we offer phone and skype consultations as an alternative option. Please keep in mind that these consults still fall within our regular investment fees.
