Providing patient-centred natural health solutions
My goal is to improve your health. I work together with my patients to resolve their current health concerns, manage their long-term health, and prevent future disease.
Achieving positive health outcomes involves actively listening to my patients' stories, asking the right questions, requisitioning the most indicated lab tests, and conducting the most appropriate physical exams. Each patient's treatment plan is individualized and aims to address the root cause of the presenting condition.
Naturopathic Services Provided
The use of plants for healing dates back to the beginning of civilization and is the foundation of modern pharmacology. Herbs in their various forms, including tinctures, teas, or capsules, may be recommended for their healing effect and/or nutritional value.
Physical medicine includes soft tissue work; naturopathic manipulation of muscle, bone, or the spine; hydrotherapy techniques; ultrasound; diathermy; and exercise therapy.
Lab Testing + Analysis
Naturopathic doctors offer a range of lab testing, including blood, urine, saliva, hair, and other diagnostics that cover a wide range of concerns such as hormones, food sensitivities, thyroid function, cardiovascular function, cholesterol, gynecological concerns, infection, and more.
Clinical nutrition examines the relationship between diet and patient health outcomes. Special diets, food elimination, variations in dietary habits, or the use of nutritional supplements may be recommended.
Acupuncture + Asian Medicine
Based on balancing the flow of "qi" (energy) through meridian pathways under the skin, Asian medicine includes the use of acupuncture and Asian herbs to regulate and release energy in order to bring the body into balance.
Nutraceuticals are pharmaceutical-grade and standardized nutrients that have extra benefit in addition to their basic nutritional value found in foods. They may be used to provide physiological benefit or provide protection against chronic disease.
