Naturopathic Medicine

What is it?

Naturopathic medicine is a system that uses natural remedies to help the body heal itself. It embraces many therapies, including herbs, acupuncture, exercise, and nutritional counseling.

How Does It Work?

The goal of Naturopathic medicine is to treat the whole person — that means mind, body, and spirit. It also aims to heal the root causes of an illness — not just stop the symptoms.

At Natural Healing Health Centre, The Initial visit is 75 minutes long. It includes a detailed history taking. This is not your conventional doctor’s office with 3 minutes of their time and out the door. Time is spent understanding your current state of health, past medical history, family history, diet, lifestyle, sleep, stress, medications etc.

Labs are requested based on symptoms. In Ontario labs and additional testing is regulated therefore can be requested by a licensed Naturopathic Doctor. Remember if you’re told your labs are normal but still feel unwell it is important to investigate further. Other functional tests (ie GI microbe stool tests, salivary hormonal testing etc, fatigue panels, cardiovascular assessments) may also be ordered if required.

A treatment plan is formulated based on the patients’ unique individual needs including a well-rounded approach focusing on nutrition, stress, sleep and ensuring the core foundations of health are addressed.

Will It Work for My Condition?

Naturopathic medicine is used for a wide range of health issues. Some of the more common ones include:
