Naturopathic medicine combines elements from multiple types of medicine in order to give individualized and holistic treatment options. Naturopathy focuses on identifying and addressing root causes of illness, and supporting the body’s own ability to heal. This is a holistic medical model, which involves looking at all levels of human experience as they relate to illness and well-being - physical, mental/emotional, spiritual and social.
Healthy eating is vitally important to healing illness. However, sometimes people have intolerances to foods that otherwise are considered healthy. It is important to know if you’re eating a food routinely that is potentially damaging your body.
Naturopathic food intolerance assessments can be included in other visits, or can be scheduled as a separate service.
Food Intolerance Assessments
Some health complaints, such as pain, and physical injuries require specific musculoskeletal attention. We provide care of these issues with a combination of massage techniques, naturopathic manipulation, and pain education.
Mental health and relationship health are paramount when it comes to treating illness. In fact, anxiety and depression are the most common contributing factors of many diseases. Many people suffer with chronic conditions that have a very real and unaddressed mental/emotional component. Whether this is a past trauma, a self-sabotaging unconscious belief, or a sense of isolation and grief, it needs to be addressed.
Plants offer an extremely wide range of medicines, in many different forms, that can be used to treat almost anything. Herbs can be used individually, or combined synergistically, to support and nourish the body as well as address specific problem areas.
Nutritional and Dietary Advice
There is a diet that is right for you. It’s a diet you will enjoy, and a diet you will be willing to spend time shopping for and preparing. It’s not a fad diet, or a weight loss program. It is a supportive and nourishing element of your life. We can help you put this together - and it may be easier than you think.
Nutritional deficiencies arising from years of poor dietary health is a very real thing in our world today. Strategic supplementation may be appropriate for a short time, but the long-term goal is to use the least amount of supplementation, and get most of our nutrition from the foods we eat.

hat We TreatW
We Focus on Treating Individuals, not Diseases
Naturopathy can be used as an approach in any situation or with any condition. It searches out root causes of illnesses no matter what the diagnosis is, and strives to bring health and vitality back into the body by establishing the foundations of health. You can expect an individualized approach to your condition and a treatment plan that focuses on underlying causes that may be contributing to your illness.
This limits the usefulness of having an exact list of what we treat. The following are some examples, but is far from exhaustive.
