How Can I Help?
As a Naturopathic Doctor, my role is to help identify the factors that may be contributing to illness, and in consultation with you, the patient, as well as any other health care providers you may be seeing, create an individualized treatment plan to help restore you to improved health and vitality.
The underlying principle of Naturopathic Medicine is that the human body has an innate healing power. However, when the body becomes overcome by illness, chronic stress, pollution, allergies, poor quality food, less sleep, not enough exercise etc. we are less able to function normally and illness results.
Here we might see allergies, digestive complaints, low energy, depression, low libido, weight gain, difficulty conceiving, prolonged recovery from illness and surgery, aging...
Please let me explain:
Picture yourself, your general health status and your position in life as a river.
This river starts out clean near the top of the hill, gradually winging its way down the mountainside, alongside several farms, lumber yards and shipping docks and finally running through the centre of a town in the valley below. The further it travels from the mountain, the more polluted it gets. Eventually, on the outskirts of the town, we see that the river has widened to a slow moving, murky pool devoid of aquatic life. Smelly. Stagnant.
Our health is very much like the river. When things are uncomplicated - plenty of good food, rest, play, joy in our life - we are healthier. But as we get older things can get more complicated; if these things are missing and then we start to see symptoms.
Many people come to see me concerned about the symptoms. To me, symptoms are an indication that something else is going on. The problem is not so much the color of the river in the valley, but why is it like that in the first place?
I am happy to work with you where you are at TODAY.
That might mean dealing with the symptoms for now but we all know that the best approach is to prevent that same river from getting polluted in the first place!
Treatment requires a high level of commitment and dedication on your part. You need to be ready to do the work to reap the benefits. This is why I say that real, long-lasting results are hard work: it takes more effort to keep the water clean from the get-go but the rewards are certainly worth it.
