Your body is truly a wonder of nature, and given the right conditions it has the amazing ability to heal. Naturopathic medicine focuses on using natural medicines and therapies to create an environment for your body to heal. The emphasis is on treating the underlying cause, not just the symptoms, with recovery being the objective.
The goal of a Naturopathic Doctor is to understand you, the patient, and all the factors that will impact on your health. Your first visit (usually one hour) includes an in-depth medical history, relevant physical exam and discussion of your health concerns.
Treating both acute and chronic conditions, naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual patient - their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors. In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.

Follow-up visits include laboratory and special testing as required to make an assessment and diagnosis. A personal treatment plan that suits your individual needs is prepared and followed.
Natural therapies offered by our naturopaths for treatment and prevention of chronic and acute conditions include:
In Canada, the naturopathic medical profession's infrastructure includes accredited educational institutions, professional licensing, national standards of practice, participation in many federal health committee initiatives, and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research. (2)
Note: M.S.P. provides partial coverage for 10 combined visits per year; i.e. acupuncture, chiropractic, massage, naturopathic, podiatry and physiotherapy (a combined total of 10 visits) for those on income or premium assistance. Please call for more information.
