Natural Medicine looks to find the root cause of the symptoms, imbalances or disease using a variety of methods such as;
physical examination, palpation, history taking, review of any previous diagnosis, tests and lab results, review of
symptoms, medications, diet, lifestyle, previous injury and trauma (physical or emotional), as well as any other relevant
contributing factors. An individual plan is then developed to assist the client with their healing journey goals.
Chronic health conditions may require a series of health visits to bring the body into balance.
Doctors of Natural Medicine are professionals trained in Natural Nutrition and complementary therapies, whose principal
function is to educate and coach individuals and groups about the benefits and health impact of optimal nutrition.
Poor nutrition is a major cause of a wide range of health disorders. Although most people are aware of the benefits of sound
nutrition, the range of conflicting information available to the consumer is often confusing. Doctors in Natural Medicine guide
their clients through the maze of information available combined with the latest in scientific research to identify and treat the
root cause of their health challenge.
Lifestyle and Wellness Counselling
The body system works as a whole; with mental, emotional, spiritual and physical aspects all affecting our daily lives. Often
when one system is out of balance, other systems become imbalanced as well. Subconscious patterns, self-limiting beliefs,
negative default thought patterns and lack of tools to change are a few things that keep people from attaining their best
possible health and happiness.
Acupressure is an ancient Chinese healing method for bringing about balance in the body and its systems. Chinese
medicine focuses less on the physical structure of the body and more on the channels (or meridians) that serve to circulate the
Qi (energy) and blood to every part of the body. Channels penetrate the deepest levels of the body to connect the body as an
integrated whole working system.
Points along the channels are easily blocked, decreasing energy flow along the channel. By holding points and releasing energy
blockages in channels, body systems can come back into balance for healing.
Reflexology is the natural healing art based on the principle that there are reflexes in the hand, feet and ears that correspond to
all parts of the body, internal and external, including glands and organs. By stimulating these reflexes through a form of
acupressure, reflexology helps to rebalance and revitalize our whole body.
Reflexology has been shown to: Promote relaxation and tension release, increase energy, improve circulation, aid digestion,
balance the body naturally without adverse side effects.
By reducing stress through Reflexology, conditions such as headaches, migraines, stress & stress related problems, menstrual &
menopausal problems, insomnia, arthritis, digestive problems & diabetes can benefit and improve.
Cranial Sacral therapy is a holistic healing practice that uses very light touch to balance the craniosacral system in the body,
which includes the bones, nerves, fluids, and connective tissues of the cranium and spinal area.
Cranial Sacral therapy addresses the craniosacral system. This system includes the cranium, spine, and sacrum that are
connected by a continuous membrane of connective tissue deep inside the body, called the dura mater. The dura mater also
encloses the brain and the central nervous system.
This gentle approach is extremely safe in most cases. However, cranial Sacral therapy is not recommended in cases of acute
systemic infections, recent skull fracture, intracranial hemorrhage or aneurysm, or herniation of the medulla oblongata (brain
Iridology and Sclerology
Iridology is the practice of examining the iris of the eye for markings and discolorations in order to determine possible
inherited or longstanding weaknesses in the body system. Different sectors of the iris correspond to different areas of the
body. Different markings indicate possible vulnerabilities in those areas. Iridology isn't used to diagnose specific diseases or
conditions. Rather, it's to indicate potential problems or areas of weakness in areas of the body; in conjunction with other
Sclerology is the practice of observing the color and the markings of the white portion (sclera) of the eyes. The various signs,
markings, shapes and colors in the sclera can provide clues and information as to the current state of health as well as
inherited tendencies. When Sclerology is combined with other modalities, it can be effective at highlighting system and organ
Reiki and Energy-work are based on the idea that there is a universal (or source) energy that supports the body's innate
healing abilities. Practitioners seek to access this energy, allowing it to flow to the body and facilitate healing.
Although generally practiced as a form of self-care, Reiki can be received from someone else and may be offered in a variety of
health care settings, including medical offices, hospitals, and clinics. It can be practiced on its own or along with other
therapies or conventional medical treatments.
