Naturopathic medicine will have you jumping out of your skin with great health. It is a wholistic form of health care that addresses the physical, mental and emotional aspects of a person as well as the function of the various systems of the body and external influences.
In a naturopathic consultation Jan may conduct several tests to determine how well your body is functioning. Jan may also suggest other tests such as hair tissue mineral analysis or a salivary hormone test particularly if your health concerns are chronic or hormone related. All of these tests are wonderful tools to assess your improvement throughout your program of care.
Naturopathic medicine is a system that focuses on prevention of disease with the use of natural therapies. You may have gathered that it involves some 'detective' work because Jan likes to discover the cause of your health problem and treat that cause so you can enjoy long-lasting relief from symptoms. Diet, lifestyle, exercise and the use of nutritional supplements, herbs and homeopathic remedies form the basis of a naturopathic program of care. Jan aims to educate her patients so they can confidently take control of their health management to prevent disease and so their body can effectively heal.
