Naturopathy in Burlington – Aldershot

What is Naturopathy?

Naturopathy, also known as naturopathic medicine, at our Burlington-based clinic is administered by our naturopathic doctor, Dr. Maria Galantai . She uses natural therapies and methods to treat injury and disease while optimizing your health.

A naturopathic doctor not only aims to identify the root causes of disease and ailments, but will also find ways to promote your health and healing. Naturopathy can be used in conjunction with other treatments to improve your health.

Naturopathy views symptoms as attributable to a host of factors such as:

  • Inadequate nutritional intake
  • Vitamin deficiencies
  • The presence of environmental factors
  • Toxicity
  • Undue stress
  • Effects of the injury

The naturopathic doctor takes all of these factors, including the person as a whole, into account when diagnosing a condition and developing an appropriate plan of action.

How Naturoapthy Can Help You?

Naturopathy is a science with evidenced-based approach. Depending on your chief concern, your naturopathic doctor will proceed to a thorough assessment which takes about 90 minutes to complete. Naturopthy can help you in many different ways, such as:

Increased energy

Reduced body fat and weight

Resolved digestion issues

Improved mood and cognitive efficiency

Balanced hormone levels

Decreased stress and anxiety

Reduced inflammation leading to pain

Boost the body’s natural immune functioning

More empathetic treatment, as naturopathy seeks to know what sort of patient has a disease, rather than what sort of disease a patient has

Dr. Maria Galantai, is extremelely well-versed in naturopathic medicine and has great experience in managing and treating different conditions.

What to Expect on Your First Visit?

During your first visit with our Burlington naturopathic doctor, you’ll receive a full assessment of your symptoms, lasting at least 60 minutes to allow for a full inquiry into your health concerns. The history-taking may be followed by a focused physical exam to guide the diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plan. The naturopathic treatment plan is tailored to address your specific needs and help you optimize your health.

Our naturopath may also recommend herbal medicine or supplements which can be purchased in any alternative medicine store.

Your naturopathic doctor can recommend laboratory testing as part of the assessment process. Please be advised that blood work requisitioned by naturopathic doctors is not covered by OHIP. You can bring with you the most recent blood test results in the first visit.

Subsequent follow up appointments are designed to assess treatment efficacy, potential side effects, address new symptoms or long-term health goals.

We don’t believe in “cookie-cutter” approaches. Each client at Pillars of Wellness is unique, and that’s why we aim to take the time and effort to get to know you and your condition.
