A Naturopath can often successfully pin-point a predisposition in the body, before the onset of acute disease, and treat the patient with specific therapies and changes in the patient’s lifestyle.
Naturopathic clinicians facilitate the process by educating on diet and nutrition and by using herbal medicine, flower essences and nutritional supplementation. They seek to integrate the best of conventional health sciences with a range of natural therapies to heal the whole person.
The objective is to educate, empower and motivate the person to take responsibility for their own health, by adopting a healthy attitude, lifestyle and diet. We do not treat simply the manifestation of disease and its effects but look for deeper causes and treat them. Prevention is a major focus whereby naturopathic education builds a lifestyle that supports and promotes health and wellbeing.
Our naturopathic treatments assist with a wide range of health issues:
- Migraine headaches
- Type II diabetes
- Sleep disturbances
- Digestive disorders
Treating the whole person
Naturopathy is suitable to treat, aid or heal all health conditions in any age group. Naturopathic physicians will identify specific weaknesses or dysfunctions in their patients and tailor treatment based upon the patient's individual presentation. From there, a naturopathic treatment plan is created that uses therapies that are gentle, non-invasive, effective, and do not have adverse side effects. More than anything, we understand the art of healing, which is more than dispensing a herbal remedy or nutritional supplement. We take the time to listen to the patient's story, answer any questions and assign priorities among the several options that may emerge.
