Food is medicine.
Making subtle and yet sustainable changes to the foods we eat can provide our bodies with the nourishment it needs for health and vitality.
Nutrition and the therapeutic use of foods is a cornerstone of naturopathic medicine. Naturopathic clinical nutrition is defined as the therapeutic use of nutrient-rich foods and nutritional supplements to improve health and prevent disease.
Food intolerances, deficiencies, dietary imbalances or nutritional excesses have been associated with many medical conditions and is a common complain encountered by many naturopaths.
A naturopathic doctor is trained to understand the impact your diet is having on your health. Health concerns can be treated with appropriate dietary modifications and nutritional supplements. The doctors at the Family Naturopathic Clinic are trained to evaluate nutritional status by using a variety of blood tests and diet-diary analysis. We may also recommend FOOD SENSITIVITY testing to address nutritional concerns.
