"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patient in the care of the human frame, in proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease" - Thomas Edison
Naturopathic Medicine is an evidence based medical model that combines medical diagnosis and examination with holistic and individualized treatment plans. Naturopathic medicine can include the use of pharmaceutical medications, but opts for the best treatment available according to the most current research, including herbal medicine, natural supplements, homeopathy, dietary counselling, water fasting and mind/body therapies.
Naturopathic Doctors practise according to their oath which states:
Do No Harm
Treat the Cause
Treat the Whole Person
Trust the Healing Power of Nature
A Visit with a Naturopathic Doctor will be a dedicated time to learning as much as possible about your current state of health as well as your health history. A physical exam is necessary to rule out any undiagnosed conditions as well as form a baseline measurement of health. Diagnostic tests may be prescribed such as blood work, hormone testing, food allergy panels, stool tests, urine analysis and more. Getting a complete picture of your health is critical to determining the cause of illness and to create a treatment plan for radiant health. After the information is collected, a treatment plan is created to rebalance your body, remove obstacles to cure and promote health and wellness from the inside out.
When indicated, intensive detoxification may be necessary. That's where we specialize. Dietary programs and Water fasting are part of our retreat programs. To learn more about our detoxification programs click here.
