Allergy Treatments

Allergy treatments involve techniques from Traditional Chinese Medicine and modern scientific medicine. Allergens and/or sensitivities are identified using a technique that uses the client’s own muscle strength. From this process, acupressure and acupuncture are then applied to normalize the immune system reaction to the specific allergen. Allergens and/or sensitivities are cleared out from the body, one at a time, in a specific sequence for the best results. Nutritional supplements, botanical medicine or homeopathy may be used to improve the results.

Botanical Medicine

Medicinal plants have been, and will continue to be a valuable part of health care. These plants and plant substances are highly effective and safe in the right dosage and when used correctly with other herbs and treatments. Herbs can be prepared in many forms – teas, tinctures or capsules. Naturopathic doctors are currently the only health care providers in Canada to be licensed for the use of botanical medicine.

Clinical Nutrition

Nutrition and the therapeutic use of foods is a cornerstone of Naturopathic medicine. Food intolerances, deficiencies, dietary imbalances or nutritional excesses have been associated with many medical conditions. With appropriate dietary modification and nutritional supplements health concerns can be treated with fewer complications and side effects.

Cosmetic and Cellulite Acupuncture

Cosmetic acupuncture is a customized, natural, and effective rejuvenation treatment for the face and neck that is designed to help clients look and feel younger. It is a non-surgical alternative to reduce signs of aging such as wrinkles, sagging skin, and dark circles under the eyes.

Cellulite acupuncture is targeted to effectively smooth out the appearance of cellulite on the hips, thighs, buttocks, arms and abdomen.

With both types of treatments the client’s other health concerns are also addressed during the treatment.

Homeopathic Medicine

This powerful system of medicine is more than 200 years old and is widely accepted in many countries. Homeopathic remedies are made from specific dilutions of plant, animal and mineral substances. When carefully matched to the patient they are able to affect the body’s “vital force” and to stimulate the body’s innate healing forces on both the physical and emotional levels, with few side effects. Some conditions that do not respond well to conventional medicine respond effectively to homeopathy.

Hydrotherapy

Hydrotherapy uses the healing powers of water to relieve symptoms and promote long-term health and vitality. Modern hydrotherapy may be used to exert a direct effect on certain organ systems or muscle groups, and usually involves bathing techniques or the strategic application of damp compresses. It offers a safe, inexpensive way to treat a wide variety of health conditions.

Intramuscular Injections

Vitamins B12 and folic acid are delivered intramuscularly. By using this method you can bypass absorption and the vitamins go directly into the surrounding tissue. The injections are used to treat deficiencies and as treatment for various conditions. It’s also a great energy boost!

Laboratory Testing

Medical Labs are performed as necessary. These include tests done by blood, saliva, urine and hair. Please see the Lab Testing section for a comprehensive list.

Prevention and Lifestyle Counselling

Mental attitudes and emotional states are important elements in healing and disease. Addressing all aspects of a person’s life, identifying and addressing the impact that stress and life events have on a patient’s health is an important aspect of naturopathic treatment. Part of a comprehensive treatment includes counsel on diet, lifestyle, specific stressors, exercise and occupational or environmental elements.

Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupucture

The key principal that defines and connects all of Chinese medicine is that of Chi, or vital energy. The Chi of all organs must be in balance, neither too active nor too dormant, for a person to be healthy. The Chi of the body’s organs and systems are all connected in meridians or channels that lie just under the skin. Traditional Chinese Medicine combines the use of herbs and acupuncture in the most appropriate combination to assist the body in regulating the Chi and achieving balance. Acupuncture is the use of very thin needles, which are inserted into specific meridian points. The practice of acupuncture has been around for over two thousand years and has proven to be very effective especially for pain relief and chronic illness.
