Women’s Health

Diabetes is one of the most common chronic diseases in Canada. It is also the cause of many serious health complications. Naturopathic therapy for diabetes aims to stabilize blood sugar through lifestyle and dietary recommendations. Nutritional and herbal medicines can help to support the effects of diet and exercise. A comprehensive approach is offered to our patients for the treatment and prevention of Type II Diabetes, including its damaging health effects.


Fatigue is a common concern addressed by naturopathic doctors. Fatigue may be caused by any number of issues, including long-term stress, viruses, toxicants, sleep apnea, etc. Long-term fatigue can significantly affect quality of life. Our naturopathic interns and doctors will assess you for the cause of your fatigue and address it with the proper restorative therapies.

Anxiety and Depression

Naturopathic medical treatments are commonly used to address the effects of anxiety and depression. Treatment may include the use of herbal remedies and supplements, lifestyle and nutrition programs that support overall health and wellness, and other forms of natural therapy. Naturopathic doctors can recommend therapies that may also be used in conjunction with conventional medications.

Joint Pain

Naturopathic doctors treat arthritis and other joint conditions with prescription-free pain relief and rehabilitation. Therapies such as acupuncture and herbal and nutritional medicine can provide safe and effective treatment for arthritis.

Digestive Concerns

Proper gut function is critical to addressing many health concerns by allowing for proper nutrient absorption and waste elimination. Approaches to digestive wellness might include changes to diet, identifying food sensitivity, nutritional supplements and immune support.


Insomnia is one of the more common health issues seen by both conventional medical doctors and naturopathic doctors. While pharmaceutical medicines may provide effective short-term relief of insomnia, they are not generally recommended for long-term use.
