Core Modalities used:

Botanical Medicine

Botanical medicine has been used traditionally for centuries in several different cultures. It is the use of plants to treat and prevent various conditions. Many herbs have been extensively researched for their healing properties, as well as for establishing their safety profiles. Botanical medicine can be used effectively for both acute and chronic conditions, and generally have fewer side effects than many pharmaceutical drugs.

 

Clinical Nutrition

Clinical nutrition recognizes food as medicine. Naturopathic doctors are highly trained to recognize your individual dietary needs, whether that be introducing missing nutrients into your diet, or removing harmful foods that could be causing or exacerbating certain conditions. Clinical nutrition also involves supplementation of vitamins, minerals and various nutrients in dosages that cannot be achieved through dietary means.

 

Acupuncture

Acupuncture has been used effectively for thousands of years, and involves insertion of fine needles into various points on the body. From a Western stand point, acupuncture stimulates the release of various chemicals that act as natural pain killers, and therefore is effective in pain management. From a traditional Chinese medical perspective, the needles stimulate the flow of energy, and has been shown effective in the treatment of various pain syndromes, headaches, migraines, fertility, gastrointestinal concerns, nervous system disorders, sinusitis, and various other acute and chronic conditions

 

Lifestyle Counseling

Our state of health is impacted by many different factors, including physical, mental, emotional, nutritional, environmental and genetic factors. Lifestyle habits such as sleeping patterns, stress, eating habits, and work schedules, all play a part in creating imbalance in our bodies. Naturopathic doctors recognize the importance these factors have on our state of health, and are trained to identify areas of concern to promote optimal health. Without any judgement, naturopathic doctors explore all of these factors to guide patients into implementing lifestyle changes to ensure overall health and balance.

 

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy is the use of water in various forms to promote healing. Hydrotherapy is effective in increasing circulation, improving lymphatic drainage, and enhancing detoxification for the elimination of toxins. It is used in conjunction with other therapies to enhance the healing process.

 

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathic remedies are dilutions of plant, animal, and mineral parts, that stimulate self healing. They are cost effective, safe, with little to no side effects, and can be used in both acute and chronic conditions.
