There is no "one- size- fits- all" when it comes to your family's health.

Homeopathy



Homeopathy uses small doses of substances derived from plant, mineral and animals to stimulate the body's own innate immune system to heal. It is based on the principle of "Like Curing Like", that is, a substance will help heal symptoms that it is known to cause in a healthy individual.  For example, one of the most common homeopathic medicines for allergies is Allium cepa, made from the common onion.  We know that onions make our noses run and our eyes tear and therefore, Allium cepa will aid an individual who is experiencing these same symptoms.

 

Unlike most conventional drug treatments, which work to oppose or suppress symptoms in order to give relief, homeopathy recognizes that our outward symptoms are actually an expression of an inward imbalance. When we are sick, the symptoms we experience, whether it be a rash or a panic attack, are an outward expression of a root problem. The right homeopathic medicine will address the root concern and support the body, healing the symptoms from the inside out.

 

I have found homeopathic medicine to be useful in:

 

  • Anxiety/Depression
  • Fatigue and Energy
  • Gastrointestinal disorders: IBS, Crohn's disease, Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease
  • Skin conditions: Eczema, psoriasis, dermatitis, vitiligo.
  • Allergies: Food aggravations and sensitivities, seasonal allergies.
  • Hormonal imbalances: PMS, PCOS, Fertility support, Peri-menopause.
  • Children's Mental Health: ADHD, Behaviour and learning disorders, Bed-wetting, violence and aggression.
  • Cold, Flu and Immune support
  • And much, much more. 

Functional Nutrition
 

Poor nutrition can be the cause and maintaining factor to a wide range of health disorders. Unfortunately, in this modern world of fast food and packaged meals it may be difficult to navigate what foods are suitable for your health goals. Functional nutrition looks to the root cause of illness, focusing on the function of  the digestive and intestinal system, potential food allergies and intolerance putting you at risk of inflammation, lifestyle habits, the emotional relationship to food, and the impact the environmental has on our nutrition and vice versa.

A comprehensive nutritional analysis will include lab testing so that we may track the progress of your treatment plan. Working with your MD will provide useful information through routine OHIP- covered blood work. The following laboratory tests are also useful in unveiling root cause of some health issues, and are available through my practice. These lab tests are offered by Rocky Mountain Analytical/Life labs and they include:

  • Food sensitivity testing

  • Cortisol hormone panel

  • Female hormone panel

  • Vitamin D

  • Heavy metal and toxin hair analysis

  • and others.
