Our Treatment Methods
Nutritional Analysis and Counselling
Doctor's of Naturopathic Medicine are some of the leaders in nutrition education due to their extensive nutritional training. We believe that diet is fundamental to healing and cannot be overlooked. Without a proper diet the body cannot function properly as many specific nutrients are needed for a multitude of processes within the body.
Nutrition is the foundation of health and ensuring that you have the optimal vitamins, minerals and nutrients to help heal is part of our job. Nutritional counselling includes helping you find ways to incorporate whole foods that are nutrient dense into your diet. This includes looking at proteins, carbohydrates, fats, antioxidants, and phytonutrients to name a few. We will prepare a personalized food guide for you based on your health.
Eliminating certain foods from your diet can significantly improve your health. Even seemly healthy foods such as dairy and wheat may cause problems for some people. We have methods to determine which foods may harm your body and can suggest alternatives.
