Naturopathic Medicine is about finding and addressing the root cause of your health issues. Sometimes hidden and masked by symptoms, this cause can continue to disrupt your health until it is successfully treated. Through diet and nutrition, as well as the use of botanical herbs and supplements, your path to wellness can be obtained. Naturopathic Medicine also works really well in the area of prevention to avoid repeat of a condition you’ve had before or developing a condition that runs in your family. Naturopathic Physicians work as teachers to educate you on how your body works and what it needs to heal.
Some common treatments provided at QHS include nutritional counselling, acupuncture and vitamin injections.
Our Naturopathic Doctor is available at the Q’wemtsín Health Society on Mondays and Wednesdays, Skeetchestn Health Clinic two Wednesdays of each month and at the Whispering Pines Band office the last Wednesday of each month unless otherwise stated.
