With the change in the weather, help your body adjust to the cold and greying skies in a more natural way. Naturopathic medicine uses natural, holistic approaches to treat any condition to help you achieve and maintain optimal health. Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of primary care that addresses the root cause of illness or disease and promotes health and healing using natural therapies. It supports the body’s own healing ability using an integrated approach to disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention that spans mediums such as herbal medicine, lifestyle/nutrition counselling, homeopathic medicine, etc.
Naturopathic doctors (NDs) maintain that an expansive individualized approach to treatment is best: by understanding the unique physical, mental, emotional, genetic, environmental, and social factors that contribute to illness, and emphasis is placed on customizing treatment protocols to the patient. Naturopathy targets not only treatment, but prevention and a more holistic support of the body’s healing capacities overall: partnering with a ND in order to assess risk factors and recognize/remove obstacles to your body’s unique self-healing processes and needs can be a valuable component of any long-term health plan. From short-term problems such as flus and acne to more long-term issues such as digestive problems, polycystic ovarian syndrome, eczema, addiction, and depression, our ND Anne can help you address your health issues and get your body operating at its fullest!
