Explore some of the many treatments NDs offer:

Clinical Nutrition

Food intolerances, nutrient deficiencies, and dietary imbalances have been associated with many medical conditions and health concerns. Naturopathic doctors understand the impact of diet on health and can safely and effectively address concerns using appropriate dietary modification and nutritional supplementation.

Lifestyle Counselling

Identifying and addressing the impact of stress and life events on a patient’s health is an important aspect of naturopathic treatment. Naturopathic doctors are trained to counsel on diet, lifestyle, stress management, exercise, and occupational or environmental hazards.

Traditional Chinese Medicine

Chinese herbs and acupuncture assist the body in achieving balance. Acupuncture is the use of very thin needles inserted into specific meridian points. The practice of acupuncture has been utilized for over two thousand years and has proven to be a very effective treatment for pain relief, chronic illness, and many other health conditions.

Botanical Medicine

The use of medicinal plants in the form of teas, tinctures, capsules, or liquids, when prescribed by a qualified practitioner, is a safe and effective way to address health concerns. Naturopathic doctors are trained in classical uses of herbal medicine, as well as modern, research-based herbal medicine applications.

Physical Medicine

Physical medicine is used to address musculoskeletal imbalances in the body. Therapies can include massage, naturopathic manipulation of muscle, bone, or spine, gentle electrical impulses, ultrasound, diathermy, and exercise therapy.


Homeopathic remedies are made from highly diluted plant, animal, and mineral substances. When carefully selected for the individual patient, homeopathic remedies can stimulate the body’s innate healing intelligence with few side effects. Homeopathy is a gentle but powerful form of medicine that is safe while pregnant and breastfeeding, as well as for children.


Hydrotherapy is the use of hot and cold water to direct and/or improve blood flow. It can be done locally for pain relief or to speed up injury healing. It can also be administered to the whole body to improve energy, stimulate the immune system, balance the nervous and digestive systems, and promote detoxification.
