Naturopathic Medicine is a holistic approach to health that puts YOU first. If you have not been to a Naturopathic Doctor before, I should tell you that Naturopathic Doctors advocate an individualized approach to health. I recognize that everyone is different and requires their own personalized treatment plan based on their physiological, emotional, genetic, social, environmental, and lifestyle needs which is why I tailor each treatment to the individual – you!
I spend TIME with you and try to really understand your story to help you figure out what is going on and how we can best address your health concerns. Working with me does mean that we will dive into the nitty gritty details of your life.
As YOUR Naturopathic Doctor, I am your health coach, here to help you “Health Up” your life! I will provide you with the tools you need to live a balanced, healthy life.
What is in my toolkit?
Therapeutic dosages of herbs and some pharmacologically active extracts are used in the form of supplements, teas, tinctures, and topical preparations.
Clinical nutrition focuses on well-researched diets, whole foods consumption, and orthomolecular supplements. Nutritional counselling is the foundation to all my treatment plans.
The mind-body connection is a powerful component of everyone’s health. Cognitive behavioural therapy and mindfulness based therapy are often used.
This includes physical assessments, mobilizations, manipulations, soft tissue massage, therapeutic exercise, and electrostimulation acupuncture.
