What is Integrative Healthcare?

Integrative healthcare is a comprehensive approach to treating and preventing diseases, which combines complementary remedies with Western medicine.

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy is a holistic healing system that supports the body's natural healing mechanism. It involves the use of a wide range of natural remedies, including homeopathy, iridology, counselling, herbal medicine and remedial massage therapy. Several studies show that naturopathy can help with the treatment of various conditions, including:

  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Digestive disorders
  • Diabetes
  • Allergies
  • Heart disease
  • Musculoskeletal pain
  • Insomnia or other sleep disorders
  • Eczema and other skin conditions

What is Chinese Medicine?

Traditional Chinese medicine is rooted in the concept of balancing the flow of qi, or vital energy, in the body's meridian systems to treat and prevent diseases. It consists of several branches, including acupuncture, Chinese herbs, Qigong, moxibustion, cupping and reflexology, to name a few. Chinese medicine can do wonders for your health regardless of what your condition is. It is used to address a wide range of health issues, including:

  • Chronic pain
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes

Video Transcript

I'm an integrated practitioner so I'm also multi-modality trained. So what I do with all those modalities is I draw in what I need for the individual to personalise their programs. 

The key is seeing the person walk in and then you see how they walk out. And then the person knocks on your door one day and says, thank you so much you really changed my life and the way I feel. That's very rewarding. That's what makes me happy about it.
