Naturopathic Physicians, or NDs, are trained as primary care physicians and perform physical exams, pap smears, diagnostic laboratory tests and imaging studies familiar to all types of family physicians and general practitioners. Naturopathic physicians are also trained in when and how to refer to specialists and for urgent care. They have been licensed in British Columbia for over 70 years.
When you see an ND for health care your treatments may include therapeutic diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes, , herbal medicines, acupuncture, nutritional medicines, manual manipulation or physical therapies. You and your chosen ND would work together to determine the best possible treatments available including those traditionally provided by specialists such as cardiologists, allergists, pulmonary specialists and so on.
The unique thing about being a Naturopathic Physician is that we are able to utilize various different modalities to help people restore optimal health. Some of the modalities I have been trained in include:
Dietary supplements & Herbal medicine
Heavy Metal Chelation
Intravenous Vitamin Therapies
Trigger Point Injection Therapy
