"The greatest medicine of all is to teach people how not to need it." - Hippocrates

Are you looking for ANSWERS to your long standing health questions?

Are you looking for a doctor who spends TIME listening to your story?

Are you looking to get to the ROOT CAUSE of your symptoms?

Are you looking for a HOLISTIC approach to healing and disease prevention?

Naturopathic medicine is the answer you've been looking for!

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct form of primary healthcare addressing both acute and chronic conditions. It emphasizes disease prevention and functional medicine, and uses natural therapies to utilize the self-healing processes of the body and mind.

Naturopathic doctors follow a model of person-centered medicine rather than a disease-centered model. We focus on determining the root cause of disease as opposed to focusing on treating the symptoms. Naturopathic doctors spend time to educate their patients on their personal health management, empowering them to live healthier lives for the long term.

Naturopathic doctors provide primary-care assessment (including lab testing), and treat with a combination of multiple modalities (i.e. acupuncture, botanical medicine, etc). Our methods are supported by research drawn from peer-reviewed journals, covering many disciplines including - clinical nutrition, functional medicine, botanical medicine, lifestyle counselling, and complimentary and alternative medicine.

Naturopathic doctors spend time with their patients - listening to their histories and looking at the interactions between genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that may influence long term health and complex chronic disease. In doing so, we are truly using a holistic approach to healthcare, empowering our patients to heal and thrive.
