Common Questions

Do I have to stop eating gluten?!

 

No, not everyone will have to cut out gluten, but there are a few cases where gluten truly is causing major problems. The two biggest examples of this is celiac disease and autoimmune conditions.

 

I work with patients to find the root cause of their concerns and to remove any barriers that might be in the way of them being in their best form of health. If gluten or dairy or any other major food is in the way of you being your healthiest self, then thats something we can chat about. Ultimately, it's YOUR body and you're the boss, I'm just your guide on this journey.


Do you do virtual appointments?

I sure do! I currently offer both virtual and in-person appointments for people living in BC, Canada.

 

Sometimes it's more convenient for my patients to chat with me from the comfort of their own home. It means no need to commute, find parking or find a baby sitter! At the time of your appointment, you'll get an email notification from our booking app and it will give you clear instructions on how to connect to your visit virtually.
 

Will I have to take a ton of supplements?

 

Supplements are a great way to correct health concerns that are caused by nutrient deficiencies.

 

I prescribe supplements only to support the natural processes of the body, and not to completely take over the body's mechanisms.

 

My approach to treatment involves taking fewer supplements, and for a shorter duration of time. I focus more on wholistic and supportive formulas such as lifestyle, diet and herbal medicine adjustments.


Are visits covered by health insurance?

Naturopathic Medicine is considered private health care, meaning that its not fully covered by Medical Services Plan (MSP) the same way that your walk-in clinic visit is.

 

Fortunately, many extended health benefit plans offer coverage for Naturopathic Physicians along with many other wholistic healthcare providers. Check in with your plan provider to see what exactly is covered and how you can maximize the amount of care you receive!

Our Approach

First Office Visit 

This will be the start of your health journey!

 

During this visit we will discuss your health concerns, your goals and desired outcomes and take a detailed look at any obstacles in your way to health.

 

At the end of the visit I will present you with a base treatment plan to get you started on your journey.

Comprehensive Follow Up
 
This appointment is typically 3-6 weeks after the first office visit.

 

We will check in on your progress, review more lab work if needed and further customize your personalized treatment plan.

 

These appointments occur after the Comprehensive Follow Up and are to monitor your progress and adjust our treatment strategy as your life and health evolves.

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) treat patients as individuals by addressing the physical, environmental, lifestyle, and emotional aspects of health.

This allows NDs to find and treat the cause of the disease, and not just symptoms, using a variety of therapies.
