Naturopathic medicine, as one of its advantages, has the luxury of drawing from a number of different styles of therapies. As a patient, your treatment may be based on one of these modalities or may be a combination of a number of them, depending on your preference and the nature of your health state. The descriptions below provide the basics of the most common naturopathic modalities. Please feel free to contact me if you would like more details, or to book a complimentary introductory consultation.
Botanicals are used to bring the body back into balance when stressors are affecting its performance, and, as symptomatic relief.
A whole and balanced diet is encouraged as the foundation of all naturopathic treatments. The quality of food consumed by an individual directly translates to energy, metabolism, digestion and a host of other essential bodily functions.
TCM pairs ancient Chinese knowledge connecting Qi (the body’s vital energy) to the function of organs by way of acupuncture. This treatment supports balance, which is essential to optimal functioning and relief of long standing symptoms.
Nutraceuticals, such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and enzymes, are used to support biochemical processes that could be directly contributing to health concerns.
