“True health is achieved by living your life the best way you can, using the resources you have available and the intent to be well.”
Naturopathic doctors (also known as NDs) provide health care to people of all ages, focusing on the use of natural therapies to support and stimulate healing processes.
Licensed NDs complete a minimum of three years of university-level training, including pre-medical courses, then four years at an accredited college for naturopathic medicine. Training includes basic, medical, and clinical science; diagnostics; naturopathic principles and therapeutics; and extensive clinical experience under the supervision of qualified naturopathic doctors. In Ontario, graduates receive the title “ND.”
After completing an accredited program, NDs must write and pass standardized North American board exams known as Naturopathic Physicians Licensing Examinations (NPLEX) in order to qualify for regulation/licensing.
Anyone seeing an ND should expect to be dealing with a highly trained professional who has met comprehensive standards in order to practice.
Committed to the least invasive, most effective treatments that go to the root cause of your symptoms.
Commonly treated conditions include:
Your first appointment may last 60-90 minutes. Subsequent appointments will be from 30 to 60 minutes in length depending on your specific health concerns. During the initial visit, I will take a detailed history of your current and past health concerns, conduct a physical exam and possibly order laboratory tests to make an assessment and diagnosis. With your valuable input, a personalized treatment plan will be proposed to help facilitate achieving your health goals. The treatment plan will include suggestions using any or all of the therapies employed by NDs, including nutrition, botanical medicine, homeopathy, acupuncture, physical therapies and lifestyle counselling.
Naturopathic Doctors are equipped to perform full physical exams, including, but not limited to: gynecological health exams (Pap smears & cultures), breast exams and general wellness screenings. We also provide input regarding basic blood work requisitions for complete blood count, Vitamin D status, Thyroid function, Food sensitivity testing, Hormone panels, Pap tests and more.
Most extended health insurance plans in Canada cover naturopathic treatments. Insured patients are encouraged to contact their employer or individual insurance brokers to determine if they are covered and/or to request that their policy be extended to include naturopathic services if it does not already do so. Since NDs use alternatives to costly techniques and drug therapies, more insurance companies are expanding coverage of this cost-effective treatment method. Naturopathic medicine is not currently covered by any of the provincial health plans.
