Our naturopathic practice at the Harmony Health Centre includes, but is not limited to:
“Food is the best medicine.”
For optimal wellness, it is integral to ensure that the body has the necessary building blocks. We will help you find the nutritional approach that is ideal for you and your needs. We also want to ensure that you are fully able to absorb all the nourishment your food has to offer. This may involve identifying possible food sensitivities and other digestive imbalances.
Holistic nutrition is about changing the way you approach eating for the long-term. We use whole foods and nutritional supplements to address deficiencies, assist the body in eliminating toxins, and stimulate healing.
The use of plants as medicine is as old as the history of medicine. We use whole plant botanicals, including herbal teas, tinctures and capsules, as vital elements to support the whole person. Herbal medicine has been proven safe and effective by scientific and clinical research.
How we perceive ourselves and the world around us can have a significant influence on our health. Belief systems and emotional blocks as well as daily stress can lead to physical and physiological symptoms and eventually to illness. Some of the tools we use include stress management, visualization, meditation and breathing techniques to optimize healing. We encourage you to get beyond the symptoms to the underlying cause.
Homeopathy is based on the principle of “like cures like.” We use it to work on a subtle yet powerful energetic level, using minute amounts of a substance, and gently acting to strengthen the body.
In ‘water healing’, we uses Earth’s most essential resource, and its various temperature gradients, to promote health and strengthen and balance the neurological, hormonal, immune and cardiovascular systems.
Traditional Chinese Medicine
As naturopaths, we use several ancient systems of medicine including Traditional Chinese Medicine that harmonizes the flow of energy (Qi) in the body. It includes the use of Chinese botanicals and the energetics of food.
Physical medicines are hands-on techniques using soft tissue work to provide support for healing.
