The goal of the Naturopathic Doctor is to understand the patient and all the factors which impact on his/her health. Like your medical doctor, a Naturopathic Doctor will take an in-depth patient history, and gather information from a physical exam and laboratory tests.

In contrast to your medical doctor, a naturopathic doctor may spend far more time with you as a patient, use different tools, and will operate under differing philosophical principles based on the belief in the healing power of nature and ensuring treatment of the whole person, finding the root cause, and knowing that prevention is the best medicine.

In my office you can expect a high degree of personal attention, strict confidentiality, and a wide range of health care services designed to help you find your best level of health.

During your initial consultation with the Naturopathic Doctor you will review any of your health concerns, whether it be a specific complaint or an overall desire for wellness. The consultation will take about an hour and is a very individual process. From the visit you will have a definite plan of action in order to work towards goals or solutions that you have discussed.

Naturopathic Doctors take a minimum of eight years of post-secondary education: four years pre-medical studies at university, followed by four years at one of two recognized colleges of Naturopathic Medicine. This post-graduate work includes medical science course work such as:

  • anatomy
  • physiology
  • biochemistry
  • pathology
  • microbiology
  • immunology
  • pharmacology
  • laboratory diagnosis
  • clinical and physical diagnosis
  • radiology
  • minor surgery
  • obstetrics
  • gynaecology/ women’s health
  • paediatrics
  • other clinical sciences

The education includes 1,500 hours of supervised clinical experience. All told, ND’s receive some 4,500 hours of academic and clinical training.

Graduates receive the title “ND” or Doctor of Naturopathic, and must pass rigorous international licensing and board examinations to be eligible to practice as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. Naturopathic doctors are regulated in the province of Saskatchewan.
