South Mississauga Naturopathy

Naturopathy is a holistic system in which naturopathic doctors strive to find the cause of ailment by understanding the body, mind, and spirit of the person. Most naturopathic doctors use a variety of therapies and techniques such as nutrition, herbal medicine, homeopathy, and acupuncture. Naturopaths treat anything from ear infections and asthma to chronic diseases.

A naturopathic assessment is not that different from that of a family doctor’s. It includes questions about your sleep, exercise, and eating habits and about your general health. Once all of the information is gathered, a treatment plan is formulated that addresses all areas of the person’s life, providing the body with the optimum chance to heal itself. The treatment plan may include advice on diet, lifestyle, exercise, herbal medicine, homeopathic treatments, or other suitable remedies.

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct system of health care that addresses the root cause of illness or disease. It blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body. It uses natural techniques or therapies to diagnose and treat both acute and chronic conditions. Naturopathic medicine plays an important role in your integrative health care and can be used either on its own or in conjunction with conventional medical therapies.

What are the Principles of Naturopathic Medicine?

  1. Do no harm
  2. To treat the root cause of disease
  3. To teach the principles of healthy living and disease prevention
  4. To treat the whole person through individualized treatment
  5. To emphasize prevention
  6. To support the healing power of the body

How do Naturopathic Doctors treat?

Clinical nutrition- involves managing the amount of nutrients (i.e. protein, vitamins and minerals) in a person’s diet to create a healthy energy balance. Methods include dietary recommendations as well as supplementation.

Physical medicine- may include massage therapy or manipulative therapy

Lifestyle counselling- providing support and enabling patients to make healthy choices in order to build and maintain health on all levels; mental, physical, social and spiritual

Homeopathy- a form of alternative medicine based on the idea that a substance that causes the symptoms of disease in healthy people will cure that disease in sick people

What to expect during your first visit:

Your first visit will be one hour in length. Dr. Zehtabchi will take an extensive patient history eliciting information about your physical, mental and emotional health before performing a complaint-oriented physical exam. If required, she may then suggest further specialized testing. Then, by using one or more disciplines (e.g. clinical nutrition, acupuncture, botanical medicine, Asian medicine, physical medicine, lifestyle counselling, and homeopathy) Dr. Zehtabchi, with your input, will develop a personalized treatment plan to help you achieve your health goals.

Lab testing offered:

Lab testing is a great way to get more information about your health and can help to fill in the missing pieces. I offer a wide range of testing, some of which are not offered by your Medical Doctor. These include:

  • Food Intolerance test (IgG panel) *most popular*
  • Salivary Adrenal test
  • Male/Female Hormone panel
  • Heavy Metal analysis
  • And more
