My Naturopathic Focus

Do you have low energy, poor sleep quality, often stressed with difficulty losing weight?  Although all four of these complains are common; they shouldn’t be.  We can get to the root cause of what’s going on, and treat accordingly.

Let us re-vamp your dietary habits (with foods you will actually enjoy eating), and re-vamp your supplement regime – to get you feeling your best.  When possible, I like to base treatments off lab testing.

Knowing your levels

Standard blood work can tell us a lot about our health – maybe why we have low energy looking at our ferritin (iron) or B12 levels, or why we are unable to successfully lose weight due to cortisol, insulin, or thyroid imbalances.  If indicated, further investigation into salivary hormones, or food sensitivity panels can be done.

Having an herbal dispensary at the clinic, means having access to the best of botanical medicine.  Individualized herbal combinations are compounded on site, available in both tea and tincture form.

Whole-body approach

What is wonderful about naturopathic medicine, is that all aspects of health are addressed; physical, mental and lifestyle health.  Working collaboratively with your family medical doctor and/or specialist – to ensure you are receiving the best health care.
