Naturopathic Services

The focus of naturopathic care is based on the individual, their past and current health (physical, mental, emotional and spiritual), family history, lifestyle choices and environmental influences. Naturopathic assessment, diagnosis and treatment draws from a number of modalities and therapies and is tailored to the individual. 

 

Treatments may include:
Botanical Medicine
Botanical medicine, also known as herbal medicine, employs the use of plants or plant extracts either taken orally or applied topically to treat a variety of medical conditions. Botanical remedies can be prescribed in the form of extracts, tinctures, capsules and tablets, and teas.
Homeopathic Medicine
Homeopathy is used for a wide variety of conditions, from acute injuries to chronic illnesses. Homeopathy is founded on two principles. The first principle of 'like cures like' or 'the law of similars' states that a disease is cured by a medicine that creates symptoms similar to those that the patient is experiencing. The second principle states that only 'the minimum dose' should be given to provide enough stimulation to body, therefore allowing its healing processes to occur naturally.
Lifestyle Counseling
Lifestyle counseling involves teaching the principles of healthy living to foster physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing. It takes into account mental attitudes, thoughts, emotions, and stressors that may be contributing to disease. Addressing all aspects of a person’s life, identifying and addressing the impact that stress and life events have on a patient’s health is an important aspect of naturopathic treatment.
Nutritional Counseling
"Let food by thy medicine and medicine by thy food." - Hippocrates

Nutritional counseling involves education around healthy dietary choices. Food intolerances, deficiencies, imbalances, and excesses play a role in many medical conditions. Appropriate dietary modifications and nutritional support can have a large impact on health promotion and disease prevention.
Physical Medicine
Physical medicine involves the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disorders particularly related to the nerves, muscles, bones, and brain. Treatments may include therapeutic massage, hydrotherapy, naturopathic manipulation of muscle, bone, or the spine, and exercise therapy.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) encompasses the principle that Chi, the body's vital energy, must be in balance for a person to be healthy. Chi exists in the body through meridians and channels which can be balanced and regulated with the use of Chinese herbal medicine and acupuncture. Acupuncture involves the use of very thin needles which are inserted into specific meridian points.
