Treat the cause of your concern, not just the symptoms
What we do
Naturopathic therapies and treatment plans are specifically tailored to individual patients. Treatments are often used in combination to promote healing through a variety of mechanisms. Naturopathic doctors are fully trained in the safe use of natural, traditional and modern medicines, supplements and modalities and are careful to avoid any potential conflicts and negative reactions.
Plant medicine has been used for thousands of years and has proven to be very compatible with our body’s own physiological processes. Often there are fewer side-effects with herbs, than with chemically-derived drugs. They can be used alone or in combination and can be prescribed in a number of ways, including teas, tinctures and capsules.
Mental attitudes and emotional states certainly influence physical illness. Lifestyle counselling and stress management are only some of the ways Naturopathic doctors can impact healing by providing an open, safe, compassionate environment for mental and emotional transformation.
Clinical Nutrition & Lifestyle Modification
Resolving nutritional deficiencies and using food as medicine are fundamental parts of the Naturopathic philosophy.
Naturopathic doctors use diet and lifestyle modification to prevent chronic conditions, manage current disease states and provide overall improvements in energy and quality of life.
Comprehensive programs can be designed for patients to cleanse or rest various organ systems, to optimize fertility, rid the body of parasitic and fungal elements and vastly improve overall body functioning to restore vigor and energy.
An energetic form of medicine, homeopathy has been practiced for centuries and operates on the principle that “like cures like”. Remedies are made from various plant, animal or inorganic substances and are prescribed specifically to match a patient’s particular collection of physical and emotional characteristics. The patient’s own healing systems are activated to provide relief from various physical and emotional conditions. Combinations of vitamins, minerals and homeopathics can be administered directly into the venous system to provide high dose nutritional and supportive therapies for a variety of conditions, including many digestive disturbances and immune-deficient states.
Naturopathic Medicine includes a variety of therapeutic bone and tissue manipulation methods, including massage, muscle energy techniques, hydrotherapy, ultrasound, exercise, heat/cold and gentle electrical applications to promote healing of bone, muscle and inflammatory processes.
