Licensed Naturopathic Medicine – Descriptions

 

Botanical (Herbal) Medicine

Herbal medicine has been used since the beginning of time. We have already recognized that there are powerful constituents in herbs which can address many imbalances in the body. Their organic nature makes botanicals compatible with the body’s own chemistry; hence, they can be gently effective with few toxic side effects.

Clinical Nutrition and Diet Analysis

Conventional medicine has finally acknowledged the central role diet plays in the person’s overall health. Nutritional analysis can reveal vitamin, mineral and protein deficiencies. Through diet changes, applied nutritional supplements, and detox programs, many imbalances can be reversed restoring your vitality and overall improved health. Great for athletes, weight programs, pregnancy, children and illness.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathy is a system of medicine which is based on treating the individual with highly diluted substances given in either pellet or liquid form, which triggers the body’s natural system of healing. Based on their experience of their symptoms, a Homeopath/Naturopath will match the most appropriate medicine to the patient.

Traditional Chinese Medicine including Acupuncture

Traditional Chinese Medicine is a complimentary healing philosophy to naturopathic medicine. The Chinese philosophy believes that the body is filled with highways of energy called “Qi”. When there are imbalances of this Qi, the body manifests in disease or pain. By introducing Chinese herbs or by using acupuncture, we can re-balance the Qi, thereby balancing the body.

Acupuncture alleviates pain and can increase immune response to balance the flow of vital life energy throughout the body. It is a complete system of healing and provides effective treatment for numerous conditions, from the common cold and flu, to addiction and chronic fatigue syndrome. It is also effective as an adjunctive treatment for AIDS.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is the use of water, either internally or externally, to maintain health and prevent disease. The process of hydrotherapy achieves this by strengthening the body by restoring cleansed blood to the tissues and maximizing circulation.

Lifestyle Counselling

Mental attitudes and emotional states may influence, or even cause, physical illness. Counselling, nutritional balancing, stress management, hypnotherapy, biofeedback, and other therapies are used to help patients heal on the psychological level.
