What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathic medicine (also known as Naturopathy) is an evidence-based, efficacious form of medicine. Naturopaths work with patients and their existing healthcare team to optimize health outcomes.

The goal of Naturopathic medicine is to identify the underlying cause of a disease or condition, rather than simply medicating the symptoms. We use a number of tools and have various approaches to tailoring our treatment plans to the patient before us.

Conditions Treated

A naturopathic doctor, also known as a Naturopath, is trained to diagnose and treat any condition you would see a medical doctor for. The main difference lies in how we treat.

Naturopaths may help in the following:

  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Respiratory disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver health
  • Immune and autoimmune conditions
  • Environmental sensitivities
  • Fertility and pregnancy
  • Hormone balancing

What can I expect?

Our Naturopath, Johann, will first sit down with you and have a conversation about your health history, your current ailments, and how you’d like your health to improve.

Next, he will perform a physical examination of you, and suggest laboratory testing if necessary.

After a complete picture of your health has been revealed, he will discuss treatment options for you, which may include:

  • Nutritional changes and/or supplementation
  • Acupuncture
  • Manual therapies
  • Rehabilitative exercises
