A Naturopathic Doctor is a licensed and regulated primary health care practitioner that combines evidence-based science and natural therapies to assess and treat illness or dysfunction. The Naturopathic Doctor will focus on why your health concern exists. To address the cause of your illness, a Naturopathic Doctor may use a variety of treatment modalities such as clinical nutrition and lifestyle counselling, acupuncture, Traditional Chinese Medicine, botanical medicine and much more. A few examples of different concerns that naturopathy can address are fatigue, bloating, indigestion, heartburn, diarrhea, constipation, weight management, pain, inflammation, poor sleep, hormonal imbalances, infertility, immune health, skin health, and more.
