Thanks to Google and social media, we are bombarded with constant ‘noise’ about how to be healthy. It’s becoming more and more difficult to decipher what is true and who to trust to guide you on your personal health journey. Naturopathic doctors are your true holistic wellness experts. In order to become a Naturopathic Doctor in Canada candidates must complete a minimum 8-year post-secondary education, including a supervised medical internship, and must also pass two standardized licensing exams. We are trained in primary care and our extensive medical education allows us to work with your medical doctors to help you get the most out of your healthcare team. You need an ND if you’re looking for an expert to guide you in how to take a proactive approach to your health and wellness; if you feel lost in the current medical model and feel as though you’re not actually getting any better from your current medications.
Naturopathic medicine is a form of primary healthcare. Naturopathic doctors combine the wisdom of centuries-old medical traditions with the latest evidence-based medical research to bring their patients a truly holistic, unique and effective approach to healthcare. Naturopaths are educated at a doctorate level, formally-trained in medical sciences, and legally licensed in Ontario. We spend time with our patients listening to their histories and looking at the interactions between the genetic, emotional, environmental and lifestyle factors that are at the root cause of chronic health issues. In addition to lab testing & primary care assessment, Naturopaths use holistic and nontoxic approaches including clinical nutrition, acupuncture, botanical medicine, supplements, physical medicine and lifestyle counselling to help our patients achieve lasting health.
