A Naturopathic Doctor is medically trained, naturally focused and regulated through the provincial association (Manitoba Naturopathic Association www.cndmb.org) and the national association (Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors www.cand.ca).
You can consider visiting a Naturopathic Doctor alongside any issue that would bring you to see your regular Medical Doctor. Naturopathic doctors are not covered by provincial healthcare but through extended medical plans.
During a first visit, a Naturopathic Doctor will review and examine your health concerns in detail to determine your complaints' root cause(s). Often lab tests are recommended, and previous test results are analyzed. If necessary, we recommend that you visit a lab for blood work as this helps a Naturopathic Doctor on which options are available to take the following steps in your wellness journey.
