Naturopathic Medicine in Scarborough & Pickering

Naturopathic medicine is a unique and comprehensive approach to improving overall health and treating various illnesses. Naturopathic Doctors focus on disease prevention, and use gentle non-invasive natural treatments to support and stimulate the body’s ability to heal. Naturopathic treatment can be used on its own or in conjunction with other forms of alternative and conventional medical treatment. The primary objective of naturopathic treatment is to address the root cause of illness, rather than simply suppress symptoms. Each person’s unique, mental emotional and physical state is taken into consideration and therefore each patient gets their own personalised healthcare plan customised according to their needs.

What is a naturopathic doctor?

Naturopathic Doctors (NDs) are primary health care providers that treat all types of diseases and conditions. NDs provide a full range of diagnostic tests and individualized naturopathy treatment plans based on each unique health concern. NDs are trained as specialists in preventative medicine and natural therapies.

What types of health concerns can be treated with naturopathy therapy?

A person of any age with any condition can benefit from naturopathic intervention. The naturopath treats patients of all ages, from infants to seniors and with a variety of different health concerns. They may be healthy individuals looking for preventative care and health education, or suffer from acute or chronic conditions. The naturopath has specific interest in treating a wide variety of conditions including: women’s health concerns, pain management, inflammatory concerns, allergies, digestive concerns, adrenal fatigue and stress management, fertility and weight management.

Is naturopathic therapy covered by OHIP?

In Ontario, OHIP does not cover naturopathic visits, but many private health insurance plans (e.g. through your employer or school benefits plan) provide coverage for naturopathic visits as well as acupuncture treatments. Insurance plans typically provide coverage for naturopathy practiced by a licensed Naturopathic practitioner. Contact your health insurer to find out what services are covered for you, and how much coverage you have per year. If you do not have coverage, we can create a treatment plan that takes your budget into consideration.

What can be treated with naturopathic therapy?

Naturopathic Medicine treats illness, while focusing on prevention and cure. Naturopathic doctors treat the whole person and aim to identify the root cause of the illness, rather than isolating a symptom or cluster of problems. The underlying susceptibility to illness is addressed and an individualized treatment protocol is developed for each patient’s unique state.

A naturopathic doctor is a primary health care provider, sort of like an alternative GP. With four years of rigorous education in medical sciences and extensive training in each naturopathic modality, NDs are trained to treat patients in all stages of life with serious acute or chronic illness and implement prevention strategies to ensure optimal health. So, if you are looking for a Naturopathic Doctor in Scarborough, contact us, and we will serve you in one of our clinics.
