"The body heals with play, the mind heals with laughter, the spirit heals with joy."
– Proverb

Naturopathic Medicine promotes wellness by focusing on the unique physical, mental, emotional, social and spiritual factors that contribute to illness, rather than suppressing symptoms. By recognizing and removing barriers to the body's own self-healing process and educating you about diet and lifestyle choices, Naturopathy can help you take better charge of your health over the long term by providing you with a new perspective and clearer awareness of the factors that impact your well being.

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathic Medicine is a holistic, comprehensive and individualized approach to improving health and treating illness that addresses the underlining cause of disease using safe and effective natural therapies, such as Nutrition, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture, Lifestyle Counselling, and Botanical Medicine. Naturopathic Medicine plays an important role in integrative health care and treatments can be used on their own or together with conventional medicine.

During your first visit, your applemed Naturopath will ask you about your history, lifestyle and diet and will then recommend appropriate Naturopathic treatments tailored specifically to your needs. No two people are exactly alike and, therefore, no two Naturopathic treatments are exactly the same. Your treatments will depend on your current health concerns, your general health history, and your tolerances and intolerances.

Naturopathic practitioners provide primary and adjunctive health care to people of all ages. Regardless of your age, each Naturopathic treatment will be grounded in the principle of Hippocrates, “Primum non nocere” (Firstly, do no harm) and will utilize the healing power of nature to help you achieve optimum wellness and prevent future health problems.
