Consult a Naturopathic Doctor with any condition you would consider visiting your Medical Doctor for. ND’s are knowledgeable about contraindications between naturopathic remedies and conventional medicines.
Naturopathic medicine provides a non-invasive approach to health that promotes the body’s innate healing potential. Naturopathic Doctors seek to find the cause of illness rather than simply suppressing the symptoms that are present.
ND’s have at least three years of pre-medical education followed by an intensive four year full time program at an accredited Naturopathic College. Each graduate achieves a Diploma as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine.
Acupuncture / Traditional Chinese Medicine
No, but Naturopathic Medicine is covered under most work and private health insurance plans.
As of April 1, 2013 a new regulatory body was created for Traditional Chinese Medical Doctors and Acupuncturists. This affects how patients will be reimbursed for their acupuncture treatment with our naturopaths. Patients can submit their acupuncture under Naturopathic Coverage in their EHC.
