Nutrition

Nutrition and the therapeutic use of foods is a cornerstone of naturopathic medicine. Food intolerances, deficiencies, dietary imbalances or nutritional excesses have been associated with many medical conditions. A naturopathic doctor is trained to understand the impact that your diet is having on your health. With appropriate dietary modification and nutritional supplements health concerns can be treated with fewer complications and side effects.

Plant-based nutrition is a passion of mine and I feel that there is no stronger medicine than a whole foods, plant-based diet. Through proper nutrition, it is possible to prevent and cure some of the most common and deadliest diseases in North America- heart disease, diabetes, obesity, hypertension and cancer. What does this mean? It means cutting back (or eliminating) meat, dairy, eggs and seafood while consuming more whole grains, legumes, fruits and vegetables. Come for an appointment if you're curious about how to do it properly, ensure your nutrient intake and need resources on how to keep eating delicious meals.
