As a naturopathic doctor (ND) I believe good health care should transform your life. It is about more than quickly giving a supplement or super-food to ease your complaint. Good healthcare should have you thriving in all areas of your life. It should have you eating well and sleeping well. It should change the way you structure your days and habits. It should improve the environment around you and the household products you use. Good health care should even improve your outlook on life. All these areas affect your current state of health. I also believe health care should be as gentle as possible and not intimidating.
Every system of your body can have a profound impact on your health. Your digestive system can play a role in the health of your skin. Your immune system can influence the level of pain you are in. Your hormones can impact your mood. The list is endless. Sometimes you try to unravel this web on your own. You may research and experiment with many remedies and still not get results. Often what you need is individual guidance from an expert.
I can help you with:
- Getting your blood pressure, sugar or cholesterol down
- Getting a better night’s sleep
- Regulating your period and your hormones
- Reducing your aches and pains
- Reducing your weight
- Easing your anxiety and depression
- Improving your digestion
- And much more
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct form of primary health care which combines traditional natural therapies, with modern evidence-based scientific knowledge. It focuses on strengthening the foundations of health, in order to prevent disease and work towards making effective and sustainable changes that are beneficial for your health. Naturopathic Doctors aim to determine the root cause of illness rather than suppressing symptoms, so that patients can be provided with a long-term solution for their health concerns. As part of your initial intake, Dr. Navleen will work with you to take a complete health history in order to understand all the mental, physical and environmental factors that may be affecting your health. This allows her to provide you with an individualized treatment plan that is unique to your specific health concerns and goals!
Natural therapies that Dr. Navleen may use as part of your treatment plan include clinical nutrition & supplementation, lifestyle counselling, botanical medicine and acupuncture.
Dr. Navleen also uses additional testing when necessary, to take a closer look at some of the factors that may be affecting your health.
Naturopathic Doctors are trained to successfully manage and treat many acute and chronic health concerns. These include but are not limited to: digestive concerns, hormonal concerns (i.e women’s health, insulin resistance, thyroid conditions, menopause), fertility and pregnancy, metabolic dysfunction, allergies & intolerances, fatigue & stress, cardiovascular disease, pain management, poor sleep, and more!
If you’re not sure if Naturopathic Medicine can help with your specific health concerns, we encourage you to book a complimentary Meet & Greet with Dr. Navleen to see if it’s the right fit for you!
