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 . He used natural therapies and methods to treat injury and disease while optimizing your health.
A naturopathic doctor (which is different from a naturopath) not only identifies 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
- 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. They can be specialized in different areas such as homeopathy, acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine, fertility, women's health, men’s health, IV therapy, and more.
The team at Wellness Clinic is well-equipped to meet your personal goals and aims using the latest equipment in the industry to ensure comfort and speed of recovery. We have no premium fees, no double-booking, and no assistants.
What Goals Can Naturopathy Help Achieve?
- 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
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. This painless and non-invasive procedure may be followed by a physical exam focused on getting a comprehensive diagnosis.
A follow-up appointment will then be booked, at which time an individualized treatment plan will be put into effect based on your initial assessment results. This custom treatment plan will address your specific issues to help you return to balance health.
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 — helping you feel better while experiencing the most effective treatment possible.
