Naturopathic Doctors (NDs)
Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are health care providers whose primary focus is to identify and address the root cause underlying each condition in order to restore each patient to optimal health and wellness. Our NDs are able to employ a unique comprehensive and functional assessment of our patients using advanced laboratory testing, clinical questioning, and focused physical examination.

Weight management & nutrition counselling
Our NDs know that proper nutrition is one of the keys to good health. We provide personalized recommendations based off of each person’s individual needs in order to ensure that you are receiving high quality, nutritionally dense foods that will help you thrive. We also implement a realistic, habit-based approach to nutrition in order to address the limitations of fad diets or crash diets.
Our NDs utilize a functional medicine based approach to lab testing. They have received training in utilizing and interpreting tests such as:
- Food sensitivity testing
- Lyme disease/vector borne illness testing
- Comprehensive hormone analysis
- Inflammatory markers
- Routine blood work (CBC, vitamin D, vitamin B12, thyroid function, cholesterol markers, blood sugar levels, etc)
