What is naturopathic medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is an evidence-based primary healthcare system that combines traditional knowledge and up-to-date research to prevent disease, treat and manage illness, and promote health.
Who does it help?
At Silver Spruce, we use naturopathic medicine to help patients with a wide range of chronic and acute conditions, from hormone imbalances to mental health issues to cancer.
We also help patients still trying to get to the root of their symptoms, when conventional medicine has not yielded answers.
What is involved?
Whatever your situation, our naturopathic doctors will look at you as a whole person—body, mind and spirit—and create an individualized plan to support your healing. Your plan may include in-clinic treatments and at-home protocols to get you feeling better, but more importantly to address the underlying causes of disease.
Naturopathic therapies we may recommend include:
- clinical nutrition
- botanical medicine
- physical manipulation and body work
- IV therapy
- counselling (MBCT based)
- standard blood testing or specialized testing
- acupuncture/Traditional Chinese Medicine.
