Our Services

Clinical Nutrition

Nutrition is the foundation of any healthy lifestyle plan. We address nutrition in great detail with all of our patients by reviewing their current dietary intake and food journals, page nutritional supplements and medical concerns.

We can also help you to correct nutritional deficiencies, optimize your nutrient levels, identify food sensitivities, recommend good quality supplements and provide guidance on specialized diets including gluten-free, dairy free, hypoallergenic, vegetarian, vegan, Paleo, and more.

Botanical Medecine

Botanical medicine involves the use of plant-based medicines used for healing. Botanical medicine treatments may include herbal teas, capsules or tablets, liquid formulas (tinctures) as well as topical treatments such as herbal baths and soaks, creams, and salves. Botanical medicine is commonly used for hormone imbalance, skin conditions, immune health, and digestive concerns.

Prevention and Lifestyle Counselling

Lifestyle counselling involves addressing the foundational habits that influence our health such as diet and nutrition, stress management, sleep, exercise and physical activity, and environmental exposures.

Prevention is an inherent component of all treatment plans and is addressed by optimizing current health and addressing all modifiable risk factors that contribute to disease.

Acupuncture

Acupuncture involves inserting very thin needles into special points on your body that are chosen based on your individual health concerns. Most people expect needles to be quite painful; however, the needles are extremely thin. You may feel a slight pinch upon insertion of the needles or nothing at all. Once the needles are inserted, most people experience a deep sense of relaxation and many fall asleep.

The benefits of acupuncture include rebalancing energy, increased relaxation, improved circulation, pain reduction, and decreased muscle tension. Acupuncture can treat a wide range of conditions including headaches, insomnia, anxiety, digestive disorders, menstrual irregularities and PMS.

Natural Desiccated Thyroid (NDT)

Natural desiccated thyroid (NDT) is a safe and effective alternative to pharmaceutical thyroid medications such as Synthroid and levothyroxine.

It can be helpful for patients who continue to have symptoms of thyroid imbalance while taking medications or patients with milder thyroid imbalances that don’t require medication.

Specialized Lab Testing

Tired of feeling held back in life because you can’t rely on your health? You don’t just have to live with this! You CAN feel better. Let’s find answers…

Food Sensitivity Testing

Food sensitivities are becoming increasingly common due to a variety of factors including our over-consumption of processed and genetically-modified foods, chronic stress, and long-term use of certain medications (e.g. heartburn medication and antibiotics) which can disrupt our digestive health. In contrast to classic food “allergies” such as peanuts allergies, food sensitivities can be harder to identify because symptoms may appear 24 to 72 hours after eating an offending food. To complicate matters, the symptoms of food sensitivities don’t always affect our digestion and may also include headaches, fatigue, skin concerns, joint pain, etc.

In order to help our patients identify both food allergies and sensitivities, we offer food sensitivity testing through a simple blood test that assesses intolerances and sensitivities to 120 foods.

Saliva Hormone Testing

Saliva testing is a simple, non-invasive method of testing. In addition, it has the advantage of allowing for the collection of several samples over the course of a month, for example, which can provide more detailed and accurate results compared to a one-time collection.

How is saliva hormone testing different than blood tests?

Our bodies tightly regulate the amount of hormones present in our blood in order to preserve health. It can be difficult to identify hormone imbalances in the blood unless there are large abnormalities. Furthermore, hormones found in the blood are bound to proteins and are therefore in their “inactive” form. On the other hand, saliva testing will reflect free or “active” hormone levels and can identify mild imbalances.

We offer a variety of saliva hormone testing options, including:

Female Hormone Panel

Are you struggling with symptoms of hormonal imbalance such as irregular periods, PMS, PCOS, acne or endometriosis. Saliva testing of estrogen, progesterone, DHEA-S, and testosterone to identify the problem can be the first step towards solving your concern. In contrast to blood testing, this saliva test allows us to monitor your hormone levels throughout your entire menstrual cycle providing more detailed information about your hormone levels.

Cost: starting at $300

Adrenal Function Panel

Is stress affecting your health? Stress can affect your body and your health in many different ways. This test measures your stress hormones cortisol and DHEAS throughout the day to get a more complete picture of what role stress is playing in your symptoms. This test is especially helpful for individuals with fatigue, insomnia, or unexplained weight gain.

Urine Toxic Elements

Toxic elements can block the beneficial effects of essential elements (e.g. zinc, calcium) by replacing them in important biochemical processes. It is relatively easy for small amounts of toxic elements to accumulate over time. Measurement of toxic elements in urine can help determine if toxic element accumulation has occurred.
