What is involved in a typical treatment?
CLINICAL NUTRITION A healthy diet–consisting of the right balance of vitamins, minerals, enzymes, anti-oxidants, fibre and amino acids–is the most important tool for your body to manage stress and prevent and recover from illness. Supplementation by injection or oral tablets maybe needed in certain disease conditions. For full nutrition consultations, please refer to our Holistic Nutritionist.
BOTANICAL/HERBAL MEDICINE The flowers, roots, leaves or oils of a plant may be used in a remedy to address acute conditions such as colds and flus, and chronic conditions such as hormonal imbalances. Herbs are often used as part of a detoxification protocol. The clinician will carefully review your current health situation before recommending a specific botanical remedy or combination.
HOMEOPATHY Homeopathic Medicine uses minute amounts of natural substances to stimulate the self-healing abilities of the body. Homeopathic remedies are particularly effective for depression, anxiety, allergies, infections, gynecological concerns, skin conditions, digestive problems , chronic and acute conditions including colds and flu. The causes of your symptoms are unique to you; therefore, remedy unique to you will be prescribed.
ACUPUNCTURE & ASIAN MEDICINE Based on balancing the flow of Qi (energy) through the meridian pathways, Asian Medicine is a medical system that incorporates acupuncture, acupressure, diet, massage, and Asian herbs and foods. TCM is often used to treat back pain, fatigue, nerve pain or palsies, migraines and other chronic pain concerns, allergies, skin problems, fertility issues, immune deficiencies, chronic fatigue, and respiratory conditions (asthma, bronchitis, sinusitis, etc.).
LIFESTYLE COUNSELLING Physical, emotional, nutritional and environmental factors affect health. Lifestyle counselling helps patients make informed choices to reach and maintain their optimal health. The mental, emotional, and physical environments are important elements in overall health and should be considered when treating illness and disease. Lifestyle counselling, in conjunction with other naturopathic therapies, can provide support for those dealing with depression, fatigue, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), work-related stress, relationship issues, life transitions, and health problems, particularly chronic health problems.
