Naturopathic Medicine

Naturopathic Medicine is a unique form of primary medicine offered by Naturopathic Doctors.

Naturopathic Doctors are a regulated health profession in Manitoba. That means that we can send you for bloodwork, do gynecological exams, perform intravenous therapies and injections and help to determine a diagnosis.

We are still considered private healthcare in the province. However, naturopathic services are often covered by third party insurance.

How is a Naturopathic Doctor's Approach to Health Different?

We work to discover the root cause of your illness.

As Naturopathic Doctors, we will try to discover the root cause of your illness rather than cover up the symptoms with medication.

For example, let's take a look at headaches:

Headaches can be caused by food sensitivities, chemical sensitivities, dehydration, hormonal imbalances, musculoskeletal injuries or strains, as well as a host of other causes.

Now, instead of recommending pain killers to treat the symptom (headache), a Naturopathic Doctor will spend an hour and a half at your initial appointment going through every facet of your life - from your bowel movements to your job history and family history. A thorough assessment is the only way to determine the root cause of those headaches. After we determine the root cause, we treat that root cause so you don't continue to get headaches.

We help support the body to heal itself.

Another main distinguishing feature is that we believe in supporting the body's natural ability to heal itself using medicine and therapies that strengthen the individual and their healing response.

We practice Functional Medicine.

Functional Medicine is science-based and patient-centred. It offers an individualized approach which requires a detailed understanding of your genetic, biochemical and lifestyle factors. We then take those unique details about you to help determine a treatment plan for your health concerns that will provide you with improved results.

Initial ND Consultation

What to expect:

Your initial appointment will typically be 1.5 hours long. First, we will go through your complete health history including  job history, family health history and a concerns-based physical, if necessary.  It will be extensive and we will talk about everything from bowel movements to how your relationships/friendships are.  After the assessment, we will customize a treatment plan to address your health concerns.

How to prepare:

To make things go more smoothly, it is recommended that you speak to your MD office and bring a copy of any relevant lab work done within the past 2 years – even if the bloodwork shows normal results. The benefit of providing us with these results is that Naturopathic Doctors look at the ranges differently and can sometimes see trends in the bloodwork that can help us determine the cause of your health concerns. In addition to your lab work results, providing us with a week long diet diary is helpful as well (writing down everything you eat and drink for a week).
