Naturopathic Medicine is a distinctively natural approach to health and healing that recognizes the integrity of the whole person. It truly complements conventional medicine by addressing the underlying cause of disease.

While Naturopathic Medicine can directly address and treat the symptoms of illness, it really does more by removing any blocks to your health and supporting your body in its own healing and by providing the healthiest way of being. Naturopathic Medicine incorporates many healing modalities and tools including: lifestyle modification, counselling, health education, nutritional intervention, mineral supplementation, homeopathy and herbal medicine.

THERAPIES USED

The following is a list of services and therapies offered.

Preventative Lifestyle Modification

This involves doing a comprehensive assessment and creating a health plan including lifestyle factors including: diet, exercise, self care and stress management.

Nutrition

Using diet analysis and food sensitivity and allergy testing to find and organize the most effective and manageable nutrition plan.

Botanical Medicine

Naturopathic Physicians or NDs are trained herbalists and know the scientific and historical uses of plants. NDs also have specialized training in the safety and potential interactions of those plants with prescription medications.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathy is a distinct discipline and uses specifically chosen and prepared natural substances to stimulate the body’s natural healing ability. This can be used for acute conditions (earache, teething, or diarrhea) or for more general complaints.

Mineral Supplementation

Using therapeutic doses of various vitamins or minerals to support body systems and promote optimal functioning.

Counselling

Using various counselling techniques to discover and address emotional or spiritual blocks to wellness.

Testing

NDs are trained in using and interpreting conventional laboratory testing, though current legislation limits our testing through BC laboratories. Labs can be ordered by Naturopathic Physicians, however the cost is not covered by Medicare and patients need to pay out of pocket. We also use laboratory testing through various private labs in Canada and the US, including food sensitivity tests, stool microbiology testing, methylation and genomics tests and many more. Dr. Kellie can also perform a skin prick environmental allergy test and can prescribe sublingual desensitization drops.
