FAQ

Homeopathic Medicine: Calendula Officinalis

Are Naturopathy and Homeopathy the Same Thing?

This is one of the most frequent questions asked!! They are definitely NOT the same thing.

Homeopathic Medicine is a treatment discipline on its own. It uses minute doses of a specific type of remedy (a homeopathic remedy) made from diluted plant, animal and mineral substances to stimulate healing.

Naturopathic Medicine is the treatment and prevention of disease through the use of a variety of different natural therapies and gentle hands-on techniques, including Chinese medicine/acupuncture, botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, naturopathic manipulation, lifestyle counselling and prevention, AND homeopathy.

Is Naturopathic Medicine covered by OHIP?

No, Naturopathic Medicine is not covered by our provincial health plan. However, many employee and private health insurance plans provide coverage up to certain maximum amounts. Check with your insurance plan.

Are you a Medical Doctor?

No, I’m not a medical doctor. I have completed 10 years of university and naturopathic education, graduating from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine with an N.D. (Naturopathic Doctor) designation.

How Many Treatments Will I Need and How Often?

This is unique to the individual. For most chronic conditions, you may start to notice a difference within the first 2 or 3 visits. Visits will be spread out over several weeks. The speed of improvement will depend on the nature of your illness, and your enthusiasm to be well! Some people notice an immediate improvement in their health while for others treatment tends to have a cumulative effect over several visits.

We ask for a 24 hour notice of cancellation, so that we can assist other patients in need.
Evening appointments are available for your convenience.

What Sets You Apart from Other Naturopathic Doctors?

  • I treat the emotional side of what is showing up physically, something which is often overlooked by other doctors.

  • I am devoted to top quality patient care.
  • We have 1-hour initial visits and 30 minute follow-ups, so we have enough time to make an impact.
  • I teach you what’s wrong, why and how it can be healed according to Naturopathic principles.
  • All prescribed supplements are of the highest quality, safe, and effective.
  • Your treatment is personally tailored to your needs. It specifically reflects your unique individual circumstances.
  • Evening appointments are available.
