Visits with a Naturopathic Doctor involve a comprehensive intake and inquiry of your health concerns, health history and your unique health goals. Physical exams and additional testing are used as needed. Treatment plans are developed to meet your specific needs and may include dietary counselling, meal planning, stress management, supplements, and/or acupuncture.
Dr. Maryellen provides Well-Baby and Well-Child check ups to monitor the health and development of your child. During these visits, any questions or concerns about your child are addressed pro-actively. These visits are also intended to serve as educational opportunities for a variety of topics that include breastfeeding and food introductions, sleep habits, fever management, immune support, childhood asthma and eczema, and any other health concerns that may arise
Naturopathic Doctors in Ontario are trained in Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture. Acupuncture may be used as part of a comprehensive naturopathic care plan, or as a stand-alone treatment to address specific needs. Acupuncture is used for a variety of concerns, including fertility support, migraines, muscle and/or joint pain, and digestive issues.
Dr. Maryellen has completed specific training in Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture techniques. This technique helps increase blood flow to the skin and stimulate collagen production. It can also help improve facial muscle tone to create a more relaxed appearance and promote graceful aging. Facial Rejuvenation Acupuncture is commonly used as part of a comprehensive care plan to improve the skin's integrity from the inside out. The frequency of treatments will depend on areas of concern.
Lab tests provide valuable insight into what may be at the root of your individual health concerns, and help guide naturopathic treatments. Naturopathic Doctors look at lab results through a holistic lens, and are also able to request specific testing that may include food sensitivity testing, hormone panels, heavy metal and mineral analysis, and stool analysis.
Food choices are fundamental to optimal health. Nutrition plans are customized to target your specific needs and health goals. Individual meal plans may be recommended to complement nutritional supplements and lifestyle habits (stress management and exercise) as part of your personal naturopathic care plan.
