Services

At Healthy Foundations Naturopathic Clinic, we offer a variety of therapies and different testing options in order to help our patients achieve their health goals.  After a thorough health history with each patient, we will discuss which therapies and/or tests would be best and together we will come up with a treatment plan that we both feel comfortable with.



Therapies

 

Clinical Nutrition and Supplementation

Clinical nutrition uses up-to-date, scientifically validated research to examine the relationship between diet and health.   Variations in dietary habits, special diets and food elimination will be discussed based on each patient’s individual health needs.  Nutritional supplements may also be recommended.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM)

acu-circleChinese medicine has been used for many centuries to restore harmony within the body.  Practitioners design a treatment plan for patients based on a thorough health history, as well as feeling the pulsations at each wrist and by observing the tongue, face and body. Acupuncture helps to restore vital energy flow in the body, increase circulation to the treatment area and stimulate the central nervous system to release chemicals such as endorphins into the body.  Acupuncture is beneficial for many conditions including, but not limited to, pain management, headaches, stress and anxiety, digestion problems, fertility concerns and other.

 

Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture

Facial rejuvenation acupuncture is an effective non-surgical method of reducing the signs of aging and improving the quality and tone of the skin on the face.  It improves muscle tone through increased collagen production and increased circulation of blood and lymph to the face.  Cosmetic acupuncture can help reduce bags under the eyes, decrease sagging and puffiness, tighten pores and reduce double chins.  The treatment is based on the principles of traditional Chinese medicine and involves the insertion of sterile tiny acupuncture needles into specific areas of the face, head and body along the acupuncture meridians to activate Qi.

 

 

 

Botanical Medicine

Botanical/Herbal medicine uses plants to support the body’s innate ability to heal itself.  It is one of the world’s oldest forms of medicine, and is still the most commonly used form of medicine today.  Herbal medicine can be used in many different forms including botanical tinctures, capsules and teas.

 

 

 

Detoxification

The body is exposed to toxins on a daily basis from sources such as food, the environment, household cleaners, creams and lotions, pesticides, etc.  These toxins can build up within the body and contribute to poor health.  A detoxification program can be created that will eliminate toxic build up and that is suitable to your needs and lifestyle.

 

 

 

Homeopathy

Homeopathic medicine has been practised for over 200 years worldwide.  Homeopathics are made from plant, animal or mineral substances that have been diluted many times over, leaving virtually no trace of the original substance.  These remedies are safe during pregnancy and are safe for children of all ages.

 

 

 

 

Prevention and Lifestyle Counselling

Naturopathic doctors address all aspects of a person’s life, identifying and addressing the impact that stress and life events have on a patient’s health and assisting patients to make effective lifestyle choices.

 

 

 



Lab Testing

 

Healthy Foundations Naturopathic Clinic offers a variety of testing options in order to provide more information about each patient’s health concerns.

 

IgG Food Allergy Testing
Food allergies can be linked to numerous health concerns including, but not limited to, digestive issues, headaches and skin rashes.  Identifying and eliminating/minimizing exposure to these potential allergens is the first step in allowing the body to heal itself.
Salivary Hormone Testing
By evaluating the levels of hormones, such as estradiol, progesterone, testosterone, DHEA and cortisol, within the body, valuable insight can be gained on menopause, fertility concerns, PMS, stress levels and thyroid function.
Urinalysis
Urine samples help provide a general overview of a person’s health, including information on kidney function and hydration levels.  This test can also be used to diagnose urinary tract infections.
Blood tests
A complete collection of blood tests, including such tests as a cholesterol, blood glucose levels and iron levels, can be ordered by the Naturopathic Doctors at Healthy Foundations.
Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis
This test will evaluate digestion, absorption, yeast and other pathogens, the presence of parasites and the level of inflammation within the digestive tract.  This will allow your naturopathic doctor to suggest a more accurate and complete treatment protocol for your digestive concerns.
Hair Analysis
The body is being exposed to countless heavy metals through our food, water and environment.  Hair analysis is a useful tool for the confirmation of heavy metals within the body, such as lead, mercury, cadmium and aluminum. This test can also be used to evaluate the level of various minerals within the body (such as copper, zinc, chromium, etc).

Note: Any of the Lab tests performed at Healthy Foundations Naturopathic Clinic are not covered by OHIP. Some of them may be covered by private insurance plans.
