Naturopathic Medicine & You
Naturopathic medicine is an approach to healthcare that looks to uncover and treat the underlying cause of health concerns, as well as prevent future disease from occurring. Naturopaths use individualized treatment plans that address all aspects of your health including mental and emotional factors.
Treatments are based on a least to most invasive approach and may include lifestyle changes, dietary counselling, mental and emotional counselling, acupuncture, nutritional supplementation, botanical medicine, and when necessary, pharmaceutical prescribing or referral.
These therapies promote the body's own innate ability to heal, putting YOU in the drivers seat of your health journey.
