Naturopathic Medicine is preventative medicine. We meld health sciences with the wisdoms of nature. Our focus is on the whole. The emotional and physical aspects of ourselves are in constant messy play. We look at the two together, using remedies and approaches that support balanced positive integration of the many parts of the human self.
Our training consists of four years post graduate schooling at a specialized college, detailing the medical sciences and the traditional healing techniques we use. Our tool box includes (but is not limited to!) homeopathy, botanical medicine, counselling, nutrition, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine. Homeopathy has been used with amazing success for centuries in Europe, and has been one of Dr. Megan’s favorite tools. It is a system of remedies that are prepared from diluted and potentized plants, minerals, and animal substances. They are non-toxic, they do not interact with any medications, and are easy to take. Most often they are given in yummy little sweet pellets, or can be given in liquid form, dosed in drops. You can see how many have a hard time believing such a medicine exists!
