Naturopathic medicine is system of primary healthcare that focuses on prevention of disease. Naturopathic doctors use a combination of physical and lab evaluation and evidence based natural therapies to diagnose and treat many aspects of family health, in all patients from children to the elderly. With a focus on the whole person, and totality of symptoms, Naturopathic Medicine aims to find and treat the cause of disease and optimize health instead of focusing on individual symptoms. Naturopathic Doctors are Primary Care Providers in Ontario, and are capable of monitoring the health of patients, until such a time that referral becomes necessary.

A presumption exists where Naturopathic Doctors are opposed to medications and treatments provided by Medical Doctors. This is not the case for us. We will work with, not against your current health care team. We work diligently to help change the health parameters of our patients, but make it clear that only your prescribing physician can determine when a current medication or treatment is no longer warranted.
