Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct branch of the primary health care system that combines safe, natural and effective traditional therapies with science-based advances in medicine. Rather than treating only the symptoms of disease, Naturopathic Physicians strive to find the underlying cause of illness and treat it with a customized health program.
Naturopathic Doctors are primary care physicians who provide comprehensive care for both acute and chronic health concerns. Naturopathic Physicians provide comprehensive assessments and consider many different factors when evaluating an individual's health and choosing treatments: physical, psychological, social, hereditary, spiritual, and environmental.
Our Naturopathic Physicians take the time to get to know each patient. Initial visits are one hour long in order to discuss your complete health history and family history, review each body system, and talk about current health concerns and goals. During the first visit our doctors also perform a focused physical exam and assess your tongue and wrist pulses using Traditional Chinese Medicine theory
Some of the Naturopathic services we offer at our West Vancouver clinic include acupuncture, clinical nutrition assessments and programs, homeopathy, lifestyle counseling, botanical medicine, Biotherapeutic drainage and physical medicine to evaluate, diagnose and treat musculoskeletal disorders in a non-operative way
