Naturopathic Medicine

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine is an evidence-based health care system that views the body as an interconnected whole. If we think of different symptoms or areas of health as pieces of a puzzle; Naturopathic Medicine treats the overall picture formed when those puzzle pieces are put together, instead of treating each puzzle piece separately.


The focus of Naturopathic Medicine is to heal the body and return it to a state of balance by addressing the underlying cause(s) of your health concerns. Through your health history, physical exams, and laboratory testing the underlying cause(s) of your health concerns will be discovered and treated.

Naturopathic Medicine treats common health problems including: digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, autoimmune disease, allergies, cardiovascular disease, stress, fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, diabetes, chronic pain, skin conditions, headaches, asthma, infections, injuries, and more.

Treatments are evidence-based, centred on healing the body, and have less side effects than conventional treatments. Treatments include a combination of supplements, lifestyle changes, nutritional advice, herbs, acupuncture, and homeopathy. 

Benefits of Naturopathic Medicine

Integrative – Naturopathic Medicine works with and compliments the conventional medical system, prescription medication, and other health care services such as physiotherapy, counselling, osteopathy, chiropractic, and massage.

Personalized Treatment – There are a range of treatment options available. Treatments are individualized to each patient and reflect your individual health concerns, goals, values, and resources.

Relationship Focused- Longer appointment times means we can address all of your health concerns. Health conditions and their treatments are explained in-depth so you can feel confident and empowered in your healthcare choices.

What to expect during a Naturopathic Medicine Treatment

The 2nd visit is 60 minutes long. You will receive and go-over the recommendations on your individualized treatment plan and collaborate to choose the best path for you.  

Follow-up appointments are generally 30 minutes long and are scheduled regularly to discuss your progress through check-ins and follow-up labwork, and to revise your treatment plan accordingly.

Labwork is recommended when more information is needed on the function of your: digestive system, immune system, hormone levels, thyroid health, adrenals/stress response, blood sugar balance, and nutritional status. Costs vary, please contact us for more information.
