Naturopathic medicine treats all forms of health concerns for all ages and populations.

It is particularly beneficial for the following types of patients:


Individuals that are looking for disease prevention and health promotion strategies.

Individuals that have a range of symptoms that they have been unable to resolve, either on their own or with additional help.

Individuals looking to combine allopathic and naturopathic medicine to minimize drug side effects, surgery or conventional treatments.

Individuals that have been diagnosed with an illness, often serious or chronic, and are looking for alternative treatments. Naturopathic medicine is very effective for improving quality of life for those with serious and life threatening illnesses.






Individualized Treatment


Individualized treatment is the number one service a Naturopathic physician can provide to their patients.

Each patient has a unique story, history, genetics, dietary habits, lifestyle and associated health concerns and therefore should be treated as such.

A Naturopathic doctor will work to determine the underlying cause(s) and create an individualized treatment plan to stimulate that person's innate healing ability. Patients are also actively involved in their health program and are educated to be able to make effective self-care decisions that can prevent future health problems.




Typical Naturopathic Appointment


The first appointment with a Naturopathic doctor is about 1 – 1.5 hours and subsequent appointments will be from 15 to 60 minutes in length depending on your specific health concerns. Typically during the initial visit, a detailed history of your current and past health concerns is taken, a full or partial physical exam is conducted, and necessary laboratory tests are performed. This information is used collectively to make an assessment and diagnosis. A personalized treatment plan will then be formulated to help facilitate the achievement of appropriate health goals.



Diagnostics and Examinations


The basis of Naturopathic diagnosis is an extensive patient history, physical examination, review of medica-tions, and evaluation of appropriate laboratory tests and diagnostic imaging. Naturopathic physicians use the conventional medical diagnostic framework, but are also trained in Chinese medical diagnostic skills and spend time looking for contributing factors in patient's lifestyle, habits, and constitution.





A referral is not required to see a Naturopathic doctor. NDs work well with conventional medical doctors, and are trained to refer patients to other health care practitioners when appropriate.



Health Insurance Coverage


Most extended health insurance plans in Canada cover all or partial cost of naturopathic treatments. Insured patients are encouraged to contact their employer or individual insurance brokers to determine if they are covered and/or to request that their policy be extended to include naturopathic services if it does not already do so. Naturopathic medicine is currently not covered by any of the provincial health plans.
