I offer full naturopathic care, including biomedical and homeopathic treatment, especially for developmental and behavioural concerns. Naturopathic medicine always addresses the individual rather than the condition.

Homeopathy is an a medical science developed by the German physician Samuel Hahnemann (1755-18434).
It is based on the principle of 'Like Cures Like', meaning that a substance that can cause symptoms in a healthy organsim can be used to treat similar symptoms in a sick one.

Diet Therapy, Supplementation
Proper nutrition serves as the foundation of naturopathic medicine. There is a growing body of knowledge that supports the use of whole foods and nutritional supplements in the maintenance of health and the treatment of disease.

Botanical or herbal medicine is the use of plants to treat and prevent disease. Plants have been used as medicines for thousands of years in every culture known. Even animals are known to eat certain plants when they are ill.
The World Health Organization estimates that about 80% of the world’s population rely on traditional medicines for their health needs. It is safe to say that the majority of the people in the world rely on plants as medicines.
Many pharmacological drugs are derived from plants. It is a fact that about 25% of all the prescription drugs in North America contain active ingredients obtained from plants.
Certain herbs can be very useful for the treatment of autism and ADHD, including ginseng and bacopa.
Saint John's Wort, shown in the photo, is a very useful herb to treat mild to moderate depression and is widely used by German and French physicians instead of conventional antidepressants.
