Treatment and Services We offer a wide variety of wellness treatments

What is homeopathy?

Homeopathy, or homeopathic medicine, is a medical philosophy and practice based on the idea that the body has the ability to heal itself. Homeopathy was founded in the late 1700s in Germany and has been widely practiced throughout Europe. Homeopathic medicine views symptoms of illness as normal responses of the body as it attempts to regain health.

Homeopathy is based on the idea that "like cures like." That is, if a substance causes a symptom in a healthy person, giving the person a very small amount of the same substance may heal the illness. In theory, a homeopathic dose enhances the body's normal healing and self-regulatory processes.

Homeopathic remedies are derived from substances that come from plants, minerals, or animals. Homeopathic remedies are often formulated as sugar pellets to be placed under the tongue; they may also be in other forms, such as ointments, gels, drops, creams, and tablets. Treatments are “individualized” or tailored to each person—it is not uncommon for different people with the same condition to receive different treatments.

Benefits of Homeopathy

Homeopathic remedies are safe and do not interfere with any other medications.  They stimulate the body to work optimally and therefore fight disease manifestation.  Below are some benefits of Homeopathy:

  • Homeopathy is natural and safe for use on people of all ages, children and pets
  • Homeopathic Medicines are effective
  • Homeopathic Medicines are easy to administer and take
  • Only one homeopathic medicine is prescribed at a time
  • Homeopathic treatment does not interfere with any medications
  • The treatment protocol results in a rapid, gentle and permanent cure
  • Homeopathic treatment is cost effective
  • Homeopathic treatment is individual

Homeopathy treats the person, not the disease and therefore patients with all types of “conditions” including: colds, flus, skin problems, diabetes, hypertension, headaches, asthma, allergies, digestive problems, respiratory problems, constipation, colitis, sleeping difficulties, infertility, arthritis, cancer, anxiety, depression, autism and much more.

What is holistic nutrition?

Holistic simply means "treating the body as a whole"

Basically, holistic nutrition is healing with whole foods. As simple as this sounds, this concept has become confusing and misrepresented. Whole foods are complete and perfect in their natural state. They are as nature intended and contain balanced ratios of vitamins, minerals, fats, carbohydrates, sugars, and countless other vital nutrients. They are not altered, stripped, or refined in any way and our bodies know how to break them down and utilize them in the most efficient way possible. Whole food is preferably organic, seasonal, and local whenever possible. This ensures that they are fresh, full of nutrients, with little to no contamination from pesticides, chemicals, or additives. This is the perfect example of holistic nutrition.

Achieving a healthier lifestyle is easier than you think!

Holistic nutrition is for YOU if you...

  • want to improve body composition
  • are interested in focusing on eating foods that are health promoting
  • need to decrease bad (LDL) cholesterol and increase good (HDL) cholesterol
  • want to reduse blood pressure
  • must improve glucose levels
  • want to learn easy to follow and implement nutrition strategies
  • desire balanced energy levels
  • reduse aches and pains
  • long for restful sleep
  • must reduce stress levels
  • want to age optimally
  • want to feel sexy, happy and healthy

We are all busy with work, home life, social life and everything that gets in the way. Our health tends to take a back seat until it's almost too late. It seems like eating nutritiously is getting harder and more confusing with every new study that comes out.

Can I have beef, coffee, red wine and chocolate? What about fish? How much is too much? What are good fats? Not really sure what is actually good for you anymore? Dont delay in starting your nutrition, fitness and lifestyle goals today!

What is a Registered Holistic Nutritionist?

A R.H.N. (registered holistic nutritionist), is a professional trained in natural nutrition whose principal function is to educate individuals and groups about the benefits and health impact of optimal nutrition.

A holistic nutritionist focuses on the whole person, acknowledging that everyone is an individual, and therefore, has individual needs. The goal is to unify the physical, nutritional, emotional, environmental, and spiritual components of a client's life to promote health and well-being.

A holistic nutritionist believes that there is no one diet or lifestyle that is right for everyone. What worked well for one person will not necessarily be the best plan of action for another. There is no miracle food or herb that will cure everything, but they will educate and work with you to find the best food, supplement and lifestyle choices for YOU. They will help you make sense of all the health information that is surrounding you on a daily basis from TV, magazines, media or even your best friend.

What is the difference between a nutritionist and a dietitian?

A nutritionist is similar to a dietitian, but they are different. A dietitian is trained institutionally and they work in places such as hospitals, retirement homes and other government-run establishments. Dietitians are trained to follow the Canada Food Guide when dealing with clients and create meal plans according to those guidelines.

Nutritionists are familiar with and often trained in a variety of treatments alongside their standard nutritional training. Complementary treatments can include homeopathy, massage therapy, Ayurveda, herbal medicine, energy medicine and personal trainers. These fields have a great significance when dealing with clients nutritionally and together can have tremendous results.

Are nutritionist covered by insurance companies?

The services of RHN's are covered by some extended healthcare plans. Please inquire with your insurance provider to confirm coverage.

Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine.

The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.

In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.

Reiki works on different levels the physical, mental, emotional and spiritual enhancing everything in life.

Reiki is not only one of the oldest healing systems in use; it is also one of the most versatile. This ancient Japanese method of healing uses energy to balance the body and mind, and its benefits can be felt by both Reiki practitioners and their clients. In fact, Reiki is believed to improve just about any aspect of life, from physical health to emotional well-being to stress reduction and mental clarity. Reiki techniques are used to heal the body, mind and the spirit. It has been proven that Reiki can help people suffering from various major and minor ailments. It is often used as a complementary therapy today. Reiki has not only helped patients with physical ailments but also helped those with minor psychological problems as well.

One of the greatest Reiki healing health benefits is stress reduction and relaxation, which triggers the body’s natural healing abilities (immune system), aids in better sleep and improves and maintains health.

Reiki helps bring about inner peace and harmony. It can be valuable tool in the quest for spiritual growth

Reiki also balances the mind and emotions. Regular Reiki treatments can bring about a calmer and more peaceful state of being, in which a person is better able to cope with everyday stress. This mental balance also enhances learning, memory and mental clarity. Reiki can heal mental/emotional wounds, work through dysfunction In more severe situations, Reiki can help alleviate mood swings, fear, frustration and even anger. Reiki can also strengthen and heal personal relationships. Because Reiki enhances your capability to love, it can open you up to the people around you and help your relationships grow. By improving your capacity for empathy, Reiki allows you to connect with people on a deeper level.

Reiki offers relief during emotional distress and sorrow. Reiki helps in the grieving process. It cleans and clears the emotions, preventing them from being so draining and offers perspective.

On the physical level, Reiki helps to relieve pain from migraine, arthritis, sciatica ~ just to name a few. It also helps with symptoms of asthma, chronic fatigue, menopausal symptoms, and insomnia.

Reiki speeds up recovery from surgery or long-term illness. As it helps in adjusting to medicine/treatment, it also tends to reduce side-effects. For example, Chemo-therapy patients who received Reiki noticed a marked decrease in side effects from treatment.

Reiki can be an effective way to treat immediate problems, such as physical or mental illness (recovery from surgery, but regular treatments can also improve overall health. By helping to maintain a state of physical and emotional balance, Reiki can not only treat problems, but perhaps even prevent them from ever developing.

What is Live Blood Analysis?

Live blood analysis is an assessment tool where a drop of blood from an individual’s finger is placed on a microscope slide and is viewed under a darkfield microscope at a magnification of over 1000 times. The image is displayed on a television monitor, and is visible to both the practitioner and client, showing over 50 aspects of one’s state of health.

Live Cell Microscopy Can Show:

*The condition of red blood cells

*Immune system function

*Liver, kidney, heart, lung, prostate, uterine and other organ stress

*Free radical damage to the blood cell and the need for antioxidants


*The PH balance in the body

*Blood coagulation

*Parasites, Fungal forms or Bacteria

*Excess proteins and undigested fats

*Hormonal imbalances

*Vitamin and mineral deficiencies

*Low oxygen levels and poor circulation


The River of Life

Your bloodstream is similar to that of a river. This river transports nutrients, oxygen and other essential agents to maintain health within your body. Your blood stream is also a means for detoxification, bringing waste to the liver and kidneys to be eliminated. Due to its nature, blood is able to act as a forecaster of health and indicate imbalances before real symptoms appear.

Because of its accuracy in indicating precursors to illness, many alternative health practitioners use darkfield microscopy to look at live blood and observe conditions that are not visible through regular testing. Practitioners study the shape and function of blood cells, platelets, metabolic byproducts and pathogenic microorganisms. Distorted red blood cells can show nutritional deficiencies, oxidative damage or unwanted fungal or bacterial forms throughout the bloodstream.

By working with a certified practitioner, individuals are able to clearly track their process of detoxification and purification. As you begin to undergo the protocol given to you by your healthcare provider, the darkfield microscopy will allow you to see your blood restore itself to a river of health.

Even healthy foods can cause sensitivities

Increasing Importance of Food Sensitivity

Adverse reactions to foods are causing increasingly more health problems. Approximately 5% of the population is affected by a food allergy, which produces an immediate onset of the symptoms often associated with an “allergic response”.

However, it is estimated that more than 40% of the population have a delayed type of reaction, which occurs several hours or days after a food is consumed. The delay in the appearance of symptoms makes it difficult to determine which foods could be considered as the trigger of the health problem.

Links to chronic complaints

If the small intestine becomes damaged (e.g. by stress, infections, and/or medicines). Partially digested foods can reach the bloodstream. Certain areas of these foods are recognized as ‘antigens’ by the immune system and special IgG are formed against them. These IgG antibodies bind to the specific food proteins to form immune complexes, which can accumulate in the joints, organs, and vascular system. Immune complexes are disseminated by an inflammatory reaction. If this recurs frequently, it can lead to a chronic process and subsequent health conditions

Common Symptoms Include:

  • Chronic gastrointestinal problems: irritable bowel, diarrhea and bloating
  • Skin problems: itching and psoriasis
  • depression and anxiety
  • Hypertension
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Weight control
  • Chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia
  • Attention deficit and/or Hyperactivity
  • Arthritis

IgG Antibody Detection

While simple elimination diets can be used to identify problem foods, this “trial and error” approach is often imprecise and time-consuming. It can take a long time to identify offending foods and achieve long-term health improvements, even with the help of a health professional.

Detection of food-specific IgG antibodies is recognized as a reliable method to identify foods that may be causing symptoms and to guide the design of elimination diets based on the IgG antibody results.

Health Food Sensitivity Test

The Health Food Sensitivity Test is performed using state-of-the-art technology. Originally invented for studying DNA and gene expression, this microarray technology has now been extended to Food Sensitivity testing. The Health Food Sensitivity test is a sensitive and accurate technique that can better detect the presence of IgG food-specific antibodies to over 200 commonly eaten foods. As part of a quality program, samples are analyzed in duplicates. Results are also semi-quantitative, allowing a measure of specific food sensitivities. The flexibility of the testing system permits a number of different panels to be offered.

Hair Mineral Analysis is a screening test to measure the levels of up to 60 essential minerals and toxic metals. With correct testing and interpretation, one can construct a comprehensive metabolic profile of the human body.

Hair is an excellent biopsy material. It is easy to sample, easily preserved and transported, represents a soft tissue of the body, and is a storage and eliminative tissue. As hair grows it forms a permanent record of the body’s nutritional deficiencies or excesses.

This information, along with dietary and nutritional evaluations, will provide the basis for a nutritional balancing program to establish and maintain optimal levels of wellness. By correcting tissue mineral levels and ratios with proper diet, supplementary nutrients and lifestyle modifications, many physical and behavioural health conditions can be prevented or reversed.

Minerals screened include electrolytes - calcium, magnesium, sodium, potassium and phosphorus and trace minerals - copper, manganese, chromium, selenium, iron, molybdenum, lithium, cobalt, and zinc.

Elevated readings can have different meanings depending upon:

1) The symptomatology of the patient
2) The elevated concentration of the mineral in question
3) Whether a specific treatment, regimen or diet is being followed
4) Relationships to other elemental readings

Toxic metal screening includes lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum.

A very high reading may represent a toxic amount of the mineral in the hair, and/or in the body tissues in general. In the case of a toxic metal, any deposition or accumulation in the hair indicates some degree of toxicity.

High levels of toxic metals inhibit the body’s ability to process and assimilate specific nutritional elements that are essential to good health and have a proven link to many types of diseases.

Hair vs. Blood Analysis

“Data have been compiled from the available world literature on the accumulation and bioconcentration of selected toxic trace metals in human hair and nails and other mammalian hair, fur, nails, claws, and hoofs. The toxic trace metals and metalloids include antimony, arsenic, boron, cadmium, chromium, cobalt, copper, lead, mercury, nickel, selenium, tin, and vanadium. These have been tabulated by toxic metal, geographic area, subjects, sex, age, exposure gradient, analyses in ppm, and authority, from over 400 references. . . The various uses of hair for biological monitoring are reviewed for correlating with environmental exposure gradients, diseases associated with excesses and deficiencies, geographic distribution, and historical trends . . . . It appears to be that if hair and nail samples are collected, cleaned, and analyzed properly with the best analytical methods under controlled conditions by experienced personnel, the data are valid. Human hair and nails have been found to be meaningful and representative tissues for biological monitoring for most of these toxic metals.” Jenkins, D. TOXIC TRACE METALS IN MAMMALIAN HAIR AND NAILS. U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/600/4-79/049 (NTIS PB80103997), 1979

Research shows that trace minerals and metals are accumulated at concentrations that are 10-50 % higher in hair.
Blood and urine tests give an instantaneous reading that may be affected by many factors. Urine screening is the most effective tool in measuring the progress of detoxification/chelation treatments.

Hair analysis gives a long term reading that is unaffected by recent meals, activities such as exercise, or emotional states.
Toxic metals rarely remain in the blood or urine for long, but often deposit in the hair where they can be measured over a three month period.

Hair Collection Protocol

Hair that has been dyed, bleached, straightened or otherwise chemically treated is vulnerable to contamination or removal of hair mineral content. Best results are obtained when the hair has not been treated.

Dandruff shampoos containing zinc (Head & Shoulders), selenium (Selsun Blue) and lead (Grecian Formula) or other medicated shampoos/conditioners should not be used prior to taking a sample.

If the hair is very short, clean thinning shears may be used.

Hair from the head is preferred, however, pubic hair can also be used, but is best reserved for situations where the head hair is unavailable. Do not combine head and pubic hair.

  1. Wash hands and ensure scissors are clean and in good condition
  2. Collect hair samples from the nape of the neck.
  3. Cut hair as close to the scalp as possible. It is best if small amounts are cut from four to six areas.
  4. Save only new hair growth, about 2.5 cm from the scalp.
  5. 1 gram or approximately 1 Tablespoon is sufficient for analysis.
  6. Seal tightly in a zip-lock bag.
  7. Label the bag and complete sample submittal form

Biotherapeutic Drainage, utilized in Europe for over 70 years, is included in almost every client therapy plan. It is of the utmost importance when addressing acute or chronic health issues as well as prevention.  Biotherapeutic Drainage acts on the cells, tissues and organs.

What are Biotherapeutic Drainage Remedies?

Biotherapeutic Drainage remedies support our body’s primary elimination organs which include the liver, lungs, intestines, kidneys and the secondary routes including skin, mucous membranes, nose and genitals. If the primary organs are working at a reduced capacity then the body will attempt to use the secondary routes for elimination. Toxic residue will remain inside the body and will be stored in fat tissues,  connective tissue, muscles, tendons, veins and arteries attempting to keep the toxins away from the brain, heart and kidneys. Eventually, these toxins will accumulate and the development of dis-ease will take place as the body attempts to cope. Biotherapeutic drainage facilitates our innate ability to eliminate toxins, without aggression or force. By supporting the proper functioning and rate of eliminating we reduce our chances of infections, stones, tumours, autoimmune diseases, and accumulation of toxins in fat tissue, connective tissue, organs, glands, muscles and nerves.

Biotherapeutic drainage stimulates efficient elimination and supports the proper function of organs to improve overall health.

Our body is like a river, when the water is running freely there will be no toxic accumulations versus a swamp where the water is stagnant. The stagnant water is an environment where pathogenic organisms grow such as bacteria, viruses, fungus, yeast.

A swamp attracts the mosquitos, the mosquitos do not create the swamp!

Like homeopathy, flower essence therapy works on an energetic level to restore the equilibrium of the body, mind, and spirit. The particular specialty of flower essences is the realm of emotions and attitudes, which exert a powerful influence on health and ill health. As Edward Bach, an English physician and homeopath and the father of flower essence therapy, stated it, “Behind all disease lies our fears, our anxieties, our greed, our likes and dislikes.”163 By addressing underlying psychospiritual issues and promoting energetic shifts in the mind and emotions, flower essences promote a return to health on all levels.

What are Bach flower remedies?

Bach flower remedies were introduced in the 1930s by Edward Bach, M.D., (1886-1936) a British physician, who developed what he called a "theory of types" by which he divided people into seven groups based on their reactions to illness. He listed these types as fear, uncertainty, loneliness, oversensitivity, lack of interest in present circumstances, despondency, and over-concern for others. Dr. Bach believed that negative moods and emotions were responsible for the breakdown in health that leads to illness and determined that treatment had to address patients' emotional and mental states. He devised 38 wildflower essences, or remedies, for treatment for these negative moods and emotions. Today, Bach flower remedies are used for the treatment of anxiety, stress, depression, lack of confidence, emotional and physical trauma and are available for the treatment of children and animals, as well as for adults.

What should one expect on a visit to a practitioner who provides Bach flower remedies?

Flower essences may be used by homeopaths, naturopaths, chiropractors, herbalists, and Bach flower practitioners. Consumers can buy Bach essences for self-care, along with other types of flower essences available at health food stores and online. In choosing a Bach flower essence consumers would have to know which particular emotional state they are trying to treat, or they can find out by responding to questionnaires available online at sites that sell the remedies.

Like many homeopathic remedies, the Bach flower essences are highly diluted and preserved in water and alcohol. They can be dropped directly on or under the tongue, rubbed onto the lips, temples, or wrists, or further diluted in water before use.
