You can decide if you would like to work with the doctor and you can book an initial appointment on another day.
No forms are required for the free consultation.
2) Book an INITIAL NATUROPATHIC APPOINTMENT
This appointment requires that the comprehensive form be filled in prior to spending 90 minutes with the doctor.
The doctor will use your health history, naturopathic and conventional assessment tools, order testing if needed and determine a treatment plan that will address your health concern.

What Is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic Medicine takes a natural and non-invasive approach to health through the use of Clinical Nutrition, Botanical (Herbal) Medicine, Homeopathy, Acupuncture and Lifestyle Counselling. The Naturopathic Doctor uses both conventional and Naturopathic assessment tools in order to investigate many common health complaints.
Our Naturopathic Doctors have 4 years of post-graduate training as well as many years of clinical experience. All of our NDs have also completed their Therapeutic Prescribing Exam, which allows them to prescribe certain high dose vitamins, give B12 shots, and prescribe Desiccated Thyroid and certain bio-identical hormones (BHRT). They are graduates of The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto and are regulated by the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO).
Naturopathic Medicine can be very beneficial for complex health conditions.
We work with many women with concerns including hormonal health, hypothyroidism, menstrual health, fertility optimization, fatigue, menopause, weight gain, skin issues and digestive issues.
We work with many men with digestive complaints, hormonal health, low libido and high blood pressure.
What Testing Is Availalble?
Naturopathic Doctors can work in conjunction with other health care providers in order to provide the most effective and comprehensive health care possible to their patients.
Our NDs can send you for certain standard or specialized testing as necessary to get to the bottom of your health concerns. Tests are not covered under OHIP, but may be covered under certain extended health insurance plans or health spending accounts.

What Treatments Will I Receive?
Your ND will discuss an individualized treatment plan with you which will include one or more of these therapies.
Clinical Nutrition involves looking at the relationship between food and health. In Naturopathic Medicine, this means making necessary dietary changes, using nutrient-rich foods and may include nutritional supplementation to promote good health and prevent disease.
Botanical medicines consist of plants and various plant substances used in the treatment and prevention of disease. Botanical medicines can be in the form of teas, tinctures, supplements and topical ointments.
Acupuncture is the ancient Chinese practice of inserting thin solid needles into specific points in the body to promote the harmonious flow of Qi throughout the Meridians and achieve therapeutic effects. It is used to treat a variety of health conditions from musculoskeletal pain, hormonal imbalances and stress. Cupping, which uses glass or silicone cups to decompress tissues and improve bloodflow, can also be used to enhance healing.
High Dose Vitamins and BHRT
All of our NDs are able to prescribe certain high dose vitamins and give Vitamin B12 shots if necessary. They are also licensed to prescribe Desiccated Thyroid (in patients with hypothyroidism) and certain individualized bio-identical hormones as compounded creams or suppositories.
Homeopathy is a non-toxic therapy using highly diluted amounts of plant, mineral or animal substance to stimulate the body’s inherent ability to heal itself by promoting organ function, detoxification and the elimination of wastes and toxins from the body.
