Are you covered by OHIP?
No, however many extended health care plans cover most or all of the visit fees and some may cover lab tests. Supplements are not. Please check with your health care company.
Why do my remedies change at every visit?
Your treatment plan will change as you change! Your body is not static, it is fluid. We can address different levels of healing as each new stage is reached.
How many visits do I need?
This answer is different for each person. Chronic health concerns usually take longer to heal, than shorter term concerns. Many factors are involved – your commitment to following nutrition and lifestyle modifications and your compliance with remedies and supplements prescribed. Your health history and current medications will also influence how quickly and deeply you respond to treatment.
Will I be taking a lot of supplements?
I have found that patients become overwhelmed with more than 3-4 supplements/remedies at one time. I also strive to keep cost reasonable for patients. However, you are coming to me to promote the healing of your health concern, and so I recommend the best course of action. The long term goal is not to rely on remedies, but to maintain your health through diet, lifestyle, and maintenance supplements like essential fatty acids, minerals, and B vitamins. Most patients though, come to love their remedies as much as I do!
Do you treat my health concern?
Naturopathic Doctors can treat almost any person with any condition. It is because we do not see you as a label, or disease. We get to the root, and treat your physiology and emotions, prompting your body to heal – no matter what the symptoms are. If you require a referral to another health care practitioner, we will do so accordingly.
