HOW WE HELP
Silver Spruce Naturopathic offers a range of naturopathic treatments and complementary therapies. Our approach emphasizes treatments that are natural, mindful and evidence-based.
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct system of health care that blends scientific knowledge with traditional forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to treat the underlying cause of disease while stimulating the body’s ability to heal.
When treating both acute and chronic conditions, we recommend specific treatments based on the individual patient as a whole person: physical, psychological, social, spiritual and environmental factors are all important. Treatments may include diet and lifestyle changes, botanical medicine and natural supplements, homeopathy, acupuncture and IV therapy.
In naturopathic medicine, IV therapy refers to giving high doses of nutrients by an intravenous line. IV may be used of a part of a treatment plan for a variety of health challenges, including cancer care, digestive conditions, chronic illness and fatigue, as well as for general health and athletic recovery.
Our naturopathic doctors are board certified and regulated to administer IVs, and take every precaution to ensure a safe and comfortable experience.
Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy (MBCT) is a proven method for addressing anxiety, depression and stress. The many benefits include pain management, improved sleep, enhanced relationships, more joyful moments, and greater physical and emotional wellbeing. Silver Spruce Naturopathic offers MBCT as an 8-week group program and through individual sessions.
Massage therapy is appropriate for virtually all patients. Treatments can reduce pain, reduce stress, and improve both physical function and overall wellbeing.
Craniosacral therapy (CST) is a form of gentle bodywork meant to release restrictions in the craniaosacral system. CST can be an effective way of treating pain, tension and stress-related conditions.
Osteopathy is a form of manual therapy that uses gentle manipulation to restore proper body mechanics, nerve impulses and circulation. Osteopathy can be used to treat adults and children with a variety of conditions, using a whole-body approach.
Psychotherapy/counselling involves talking with a trained professional in order to treat or manage emotional difficulties, interpersonal and relationship challenges, life stress and/or mental illness.
