I meet a lot of people who have different ideas about what Naturopathic Medicine is, and the variation between practitioners, particularly Naturopathic Doctors, but in all areas of the health field, can make it difficult to understand what we do. In essence, Naturopathic Medicine, is supporting the innate ability for the body to heal itself, which means understanding the natural progression and etiology of disease (or pathology.) As a Naturopathic Doctor, I have a medical understanding of diagnostics and pathology, but I also recognize that there are many reasons why a person may experience symptoms.

Lifestyle is what you do every single day, diet is what you consume everyday, your genetics are what you are born with, and your environment influences how you perceive, metabolize and are predisposed to certain conditions. Naturally everyone is different, and Naturopathic Medicine utilizes certain principles that are focused on balancing the body, addressing symptoms and pathologies using natural ,and pharmaceutical interventions, when needed, and educating patients around their conditions.

As your Naturopathic Doctor, I will work with you, to manage your symptoms and concerns, improve your quality of life, and educate you on how you can make appropriate changes to support your health.

"With education comes empowerment, and patient empowerment is one the of the greatest motivators for best outcomes and wellness"


Each person is unique and will resonate with different forms of treatment. As your Naturopathic Doctor, my tools are diverse, and this is really where the art of medicine begins. I will often use an array of modalities, always addressing your needs, but focusing on sustainable medicine that is safe and effective.

Labs and Diagnostics
This includes standard lab testing done through Lifelabs but also using specialized testing for certain concerns through private labs.

Nutrition
I recognize that nutrition should be individualized, and will make recommendations that are appropriate for you. These include optimizing diet for your needs, focusing on interventions that are achievable, and addressing dietary concerns.

Prescriptive Authority
There are conditions that benefit from pharmaceutical intervention. As your Naturopathic Doctor, I will prescribe pharmaceutical medications when they are the preferred treatment for your condition.

Homeopathy
I have additional training in Visual Homeopathy and find that this can be beneficial for some of my patients. When it comes to addressing the Mental-Emotional aspect of health, homeopathic remedies offer a safe and gentle way of supporting this process and healing.

Nutrient and Orthomolecular Medicine
Our body relies on vitamins, minerals and amino acids for many reactions and building many of the neurotransmitters and hormones used by the body. As your Naturopathic Doctor I will use formulations that help support your body and address areas that may be deficient. This may be through Intravenous therapy or oral supplementation.

Acupuncture
There are two types of acupuncture that I offer in practice. The first is centred around the patients presentation, constitution and current concerns; the second is focused on pain and MSK issues. Acupuncture is one of the oldest modalities, rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine. It not only offers an alternative or adjunct therapy for patients with concerns but provides an appointment that allows you to decompress and relax.

Botanical Medicine
This is a very safe and effective way to support your body. Botanical medicine is gentle, and works on balancing the body systems due to the variety of constituents (active ingredients) present. I use different approaches either using Botanicals that are already formulated, or individualizing the formulation to the patient by making tinctures. There are some interactions that may be present between pharmaceuticals, nutrients and botanical medicines, so being under the guidance of a Naturopathic Doctor or Herbalist is the recommendation when using Botanical Medicines so that your treatment is designed with these concerns in mind.

Counselling
As individuals we are shaped by our experiences, whether past or current stressors. Our past habits, behavior patterns and tendencies, and motivation are important to address when using a holistic approach to health. Our mind and body are not separate and there is a strong connection between what shows up as symptom and our emotions.
