Profile and Credentials        

Naturopathic Medicine is a unique and comprehensive approach to improving health and treating illness. Focusing on prevention, and using natural substances and treatments, naturopathic doctors (NDs) support and stimulate the body's ability to heal itself.

The goal of naturopathic treatment is to address the cause of illness, rather than simply treat or supress symptoms. The patient is seen as a whole person and the ND takes the physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual dimensions into account when diagnosing and developing a treatment plan.

The primary therapies employed by naturopathic doctors are: clinical nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathic medicine, acupuncture and oriental medicine, physical therapies and counselling.

Naturopathic Doctors take a minimum of three years premedical studies at university, followed by four years at a recognised college of naturopathic medicine of which there are four in North America. Studies include medical sciences, naturopathic principles and therapeutics as well as 1500 hours of supervised clinical experience. NDs must also pass rigorous standardised exams in regulated provinces and states.

Philosophy and Comments        

The safety record for naturopathic medicine is excellent with thousands of modern clinical studies validating a variety of natural medicines.

Virtually all chronic and most acute conditions may benefit from naturopathic treatments. As well NDs are trained to recognize conditions which may require allopathic treatments. Please call us to arrange for an appointment.

Colon Hydrotherapy        

Colon Hydrotherapy is a natural way to cleanse and detoxify your body and dates back to 1500 B.C. Possible symptoms of intestinal toxicity include fatigue, constipation, excess weight, gas, bad breath, body odor, skin problems and PMS, to name a few. Most disturbances of poor health are related to an improper diet, stress and poor digestion, but the most important factor is improper elimination. Most individuals only have one bowel movement daily. If you eat three meals per day, and only evacuate once, where are the other two meals?

The health of your body depends on the health of your intestinal tract. Constipation is an epidemic in North America due to a diet of highly processed foods. Did you know that over 400 million dollars are spent annually on laxatives in the United States?

During a colonic session fecal material from the colon is removed and toxins and bacteria are diluted. The therapeutic effects include: improved muscle tone which facilitates peristaltic action which enhances the absorption of nutrients, while minimizing the absorption of toxic waste material. Colon hydrotherapy is a safe and drug free way to "re-educate" your colon, and is a start to helping you achieve a level of optimal health.

Sensitivity Testing        

Sensitivity Testing is used by the naturopath to help in determining food allergies or sensitivities. Having this information helps the naturopathic doctor in formulating a comprehensive diet for healthy living.

Diagnostic Blood Work        

Diagnostic Blood Work can be employed to assess cardiovascular health as well as aiding in determining oxidative stress levels and blood typing.

In addition, the clinic utilizes Clifford Materials Reactivity Test, developed by Walter J. Clifford, to allow your dentist or physician to quickly determine, from this extensive list of materials, those which could be used with the least degree of risk in meeting your needs. The report also lists trade-named products with simple suited/not suited indicators for rapid spot checks of products in question.
