Naturopaths blend the best of traditional medicine with modern science.
The College of Naturopaths of Ontario lists six principles of naturopathic medicine. Number one is “first do no harm,” a principle shared with physicians. Others are: the healing power of nature, identify and treat the cause, doctor as teacher, treat the whole person, and focus on prevention. Naturopaths, like chiropractors, are referred to as “doctors.”
WHAT: A naturopath assesses all aspects of your health and works towards finding the underlying cause of issues rather than just treating the symptoms. Naturopaths can assist you with weight issues, dietary concerns, stress management, pain, detoxification, sleeping difficulties and lack of energy. Their treatment plan for your healthy lifestyle changes may include education, supplements and healthy meal planning.
WHO PAYS? Treatment by a naturopath isn’t covered by OHIP. Check your employee benefits and your accident benefits from your insurance company.
YOUR ROLE: Attend your appointments and follow through on recommendations. You’ll likely be working on lifestyle and dietary changes that require developing new routines and habits, which can be challenging. Don’t be afraid to ask your naturopath for advice and tips that will make the transition easier.
