Naturopathic physicians must be up to date on the conventional care as well as natural approaches to a variety of conditions. This requires extensive continuing education and dedicated time to study the latest information available. By specializing in different areas, our physicians are able to narrow their focus and clinical experience, providing you with the highest quality care through expertise.
We take pride in our patient commitment
Our physicians take the time to get to know their patients. Whether you have never seen a naturopathic physician or are a seasoned veteran of alternative medicines, our physicians can help you navigate the often perplexing maze of information regarding natural medicine. Combining the science of medicine with centuries-old healing arts, we strive to strike a balance of the best of both worlds.
Regardless of your current health status, whether you are battling a chronic degenerative disease, training for a marathon or seeking preventative medicine, natural medicine can help you achieve optimal wellness. Optimal wellness is a mentally, physically and emotionally balanced state-- a state your body constantly tries to attain. Unfortunately, many obstacles can prevent that balanced, healthy state. Our job is to identify and remove these obstacles to good health through targeted nutrients, herbal medicine, homeopathy and diet.
At the Clinic of Natural Medicine we treat you, not your condition. We believe that whatever your disease or condition may be, it is a manifestation of underlying imbalances in your body. Determining these underlying imbalances is an essential step in correcting them. This is achieved through a thorough consultation (our first visit is often one hour in length), a review of all conventional testing (blood work, pathology reports, imaging, etc.), a physical/nutritional exam, and further testing if indicated (conventional or non-conventional blood work, salivary, fecal or urine analysis).
Symptoms as Language
Symptoms can be viewed as the language of the body. One role of the naturopathic physicians at the Clinic of Natural Medicine is to interpret your symptoms.While it is possible that several symptoms are unrelated, it is also possible for themes to emerge from a symptom complex. The body must be looked at as a whole as well as its parts. While the conventional medical profession has divided the body neatly into areas of expertise, this reduction to parts does not always allow for assessment of the entire functioning unit. There is not a single process in the human body that takes place in isolation. Treating the whole person, as a unique individual, is essential for successful care.
The term doctor is taken from the Latin word "docere" which means teacher. At the Clinic of Natural Medicine, our naturopathic physicians will dedicate the time needed to guide you through the "what's," the "why's" and the "how's" of improving your health. By understanding your condition and the precise rationale behind their therapeutic recommendations, you are empowered to take control of your health.
