A Multidisciplinary Approach to Your Health
Naturopathic medicine is preventative medicine through the use of a variety of evidence-based natural therapies. A Naturopathic doctor is medically trained, naturally focused and regulated through the provincial association (Manitoba Naturopathic Association www.mbnd.ca) and the national association (Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors www.cand.ca).
A visit to a Naturopathic doctor can be considered alongside or in place of any issue that would bring you to see your regular medical doctor. Naturopathic doctors are not covered by provincial healthcare, but are covered through extended medical plans. During a first visit, I will review and examine all of your health concerns in detail to determine the root cause(s) of your complaints. Often lab tests are recommended and/or requested from your medical doctor. If necessary, I will send you to a lab for bloodwork that I specifically need.
Homeopathy is a system of medicine based on the principle that like cures like. Using microdoses of natural substances to engage and tune the body’s ability to heal itself, Homeopathy is the most popular type of natural medicine around the world.
Homeopathy is part of the National Health Care system in most European countries and is becoming increasingly common in the health care plans across North America as our population continues to focus on health and wellness, preventative medicine, and a natural and holistic approach to healing. Homeopathic Medicines have been used for centuries as a safe, natural, and effective support to the healing process.
Hypnotherapy utilizes the principle of hypnosis, which allow the subconscious mind to express itself. Hypnosis is a natural trance state of mind, which actually occurs to us multiples times during the day. For example when you read a book, and are so comfortable simply being that you eventually realise you remember nothing of what you just read. You remember your eyes skimming the words, but the details that filled the pages simply aren’t there. Or when you’re driving home from work, and suddenly, you’ve driven right past your house! Those states are mind are parallel with that of hypnosis.
Ayurveda is a time tested holistic medicine rooted in India, Ayurvedic Massage focuses on calming the nervous system, and relaxing the mind and body. On your first visit after answering a brief quiz, a specific oil blend is chosen and warmed for the individual. Combined with the gentle massage technique, it is designed to penetrate the skin and work towards stimulating the arterial and lymphatic systems.
Classically, Ayurveda Massage (Abhyanga) is said to strengthen the immune system, improve sleep, promote longevity, and ease muscle and joint pain. As well, it works to balance the subtle energies of the body.
