Naturopathic Medicine

"The gentlest of approaches, if quite accurate, can be the most deeply healing
~ Hugh Milne

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

After more than 10 years in practice, this is still the question I’m most frequently asked.

Naturopathic Medicine offers a gentle, drug-free approach to restoring your health and wellbeing. It distinguishes itself from conventional healthcare by placing its focus on treating the whole person and not just providing a quick-fix for your symptoms.

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I spend a lot of time with my patients: together we carefully review the physical, mental, emotional, genetic & environmental factors that influence your state of wellness.

Our goal is to identify the imbalances that lie at the root of your health challenges, and to formulate a personalized prescription – including dietary changes, lifestyle counseling, nutritional & herbal supplements – to correct them.

In my practice, I also use specialized therapeutic modalities such as Homeopathy, CranioSacral Therapy and Bowen Technique that we may also integrate into your overall treatment plan.

By treating the cause of the problem rather than its superficial expression, true healing can take place. For example: the root cause of acne may be food allergies, a poor diet and/or digestive issues, hormonal imbalances, or stress. Each of these scenarios requires a different therapeutic strategy for successful outcome.

I use Natural therapies and products because they work in harmony with the body’s own self-healing abilities rather than opposing them to suppress symptoms. Again the object is not to fight the disease, but to restore balance and vitality in the quickest and safest way possible.

Who can benefit?

Naturopathic Medicine is appropriate for people of all ages and backgrounds because it’s tailored to meet the needs of each individual. But while it has something to offer almost everyone, the best results are achieved by those ready to take charge of their health.

If you are motivated to make the necessary changes in nutrition, lifestyle and attitude that will positively impact your life – Naturopathic Medicine is a great fit for you!

What can a new patient expect?

Your first visit is an in-depth assessment of your symptoms, general health concerns, lifestyle and medical history. A review of recent lab tests is conducted and if more information is needed to better understand your case, alternative or specialty lab tests – such as hormone profiles, nutritional assessment and food allergy/sensitivity – may be recommended. The ultimate goal of this initial consultation is to get to know you as a patient so I can design a comprehensive and thoughtful treatment plan, suited to your specific situation.

As we work together, shorter visits are scheduled to assess your progress and refine our treatment plan if needed. This process produces a customized protocol of what work best for you.

The frequency of follow-ups depends on the severity and complexity of your case, so that you have all the guidance and support you need. Follow-ups also offer an opportunity to address any acute health issues that you might be struggling with (e.g. colds, flus, injuries, etc.)

I also encourage my patients to schedule periodic “preventive care” visits – this is a valuable way for us to stay current with new developments in your health. Proactive medicine is an effective and inexpensive way to optimize your wellness now and into the future.

I believe that having a Naturopathic Doctor as part of your health care team allows you to see the "big picture”. With this knowledge you are able to make health-promoting choices that restore your vitality and enhance your quality of life.
