Naturopathic medicine provides primary health care that focuses on prevention and the self-healing properties of the body. It uses therapeutic methods and substances for optimal overall health. Our naturopathic medicine specialist uses traditional and modern, as well as empirical and scientific means, to treat a wide variety of conditions.
Guidelines for Naturopathic Medicine
Our specialists use protocols that minimize the risk of harm and facilitate the body’s own ability to heal and maintain health. We identify the blocks to good health and help to create a healing external and internal environment. The practice of naturopathic medicine requires years of rigorous training. We treat all medical conditions for individuals, as well as families.

- Hormonal imbalances
- Heart disease

What to Expect
When you have a consultation with our specialist, you will be asked about your health and medical history. You will have the opportunity to explain your health issues, and you may require certain laboratory tests in order to get an accurate diagnosis. We are fully up-to-date on the latest scientific research on illnesses and health conditions and incorporate this into our treatments.
With naturopathic medicine, our goal is to treat the whole person. This includes the body, mind and spirit. We don’t simply treat the symptoms but look for underlying causes.
