Without proper nutrition the body and mind cannot perform at their highest potential. As we've seen with the advent of ultra-processed foods, factory farming and increased environmental stressors- keeping our bodies healthy is becoming an increasingly crucial task if we are to live a healthy and pain-free life. Fortunately, it's not as hard as some might make it out to be.
Naturopathic medicine is a system of practice that uses food and natural remedies to help the body heal itself. The goal is to treat the 'whole individual' and to understand what the true source of the dis-ease is. Factors such as diet, physical/environmental stressors, physical activity (or lack thereof), sleep, hydration and health history-are all taken into consideration in developing a solution.
As a licensed Naturopath (ND), the goal is 'to do no harm' and to utilize the nutrients, minerals and natural compounds that nature has given us in order to heal and optimize the body. Naturopathy has been effective in treating hormonal imbalances, chronic pain, fertility issues, allergies, obesity, diabetes, the digestive system and auto-immune diseases.
