Our nutritional consultant or naturopathic doctors evaluate your nutritional status via various tests, including diet assessment, case history, bloodwork and more. This allows them to provide case-specific recommendations in terms of lifestyle as well as food requirements. Treatment may include nutritional supplements, such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other nutraceuticals.
Your wellbeing is mainly dependent on the food choices you make every day. Good nutrition is essential for good health and longevity. It is important to include the optimal amounts of micronutrients and macronutrients in your diet. Individual nutrients can help prevent and treat various diseases. For example, antioxidants like selenium, beta carotene, vitamin C, and vitamin E when consumed in foods, protect against the development of cancer, heart diseases, and other degenerative diseases. Nutritional deficiency is associated with chronic health risks and can cause illness and even death.
As every individual has unique nutritional requirements, our health professionals will spend time with each patient to understand what nutrients you may be deficient in and work with you to balance those nutrients in proper proportions. Our objective at Holistic Healing Arts is to help you establish a healthy diet plan that you can maintain for the rest of your life.
Herbal medicine involves the use of healing plants, prepared to be therapeutic and medicinal, to treat various health issues and diseases. Appropriate herbal medicines help to improve the body’s ability to heal and thus improve general health and wellbeing. During the past few decades, much research has confirmed the effectiveness of the biologically active components of plants. This has led to an ever-increasing understanding of constituents, optimal dosage, pharmacologic actions, product quality, and drug interactions. An understanding of the history and usage of herbal medicine around the world is a foundational education for naturopathic doctors.
The Naturopathic Doctors at Holistic Healing Arts bring together the best possible traditional herbal medicine and a scientific understanding of herbal formulations to provide our clients with quality care. This helps us to use herbal medicines either alone or in combination with other naturopathic medicines and pharmaceuticals. We ensure best practices for your safety.
The Chinese herbal medicine we offer to our patients is based on ancient practices, which are as old as humanity itself. Early humans supported their health and good survival with a profound knowledge of their environment. With time and experience, they learned which plants were toxic, which imparted strength and sustained life, and which had special healing qualities. For thousands of years, these early discoveries passed on millions of human trials. This led to the evolution of a sophisticated system of diagnosis and herbal medicine.
Presently, thousands of medicinal substances and a million tons of herbs are used in China every year. Our Naturopathic Doctors are knowledgeable and well trained in the use of herbal medicines, especially on the traditional Chinese herbal medicines.
We should understand and identify properly any gender and age-based health issues in order to provide an effective treatment. Generally, the health issues during childhood are different from adult health issues; similarly, women’s issues are distinct from men's. Stereotypes and traditional roles and perception, are complicating women’s health issues. Naturopathic Medicine breaks down the stereotypes to identify the root cause of the health issues in women.
Naturopathic Medicine is a healing approach focused on an individual’s lifestyle, diet, homeopathy, botanical remedies and alternative therapies. The medicine is provided according to the concerns, needs, and underlying conditions of every individual. Generally, when a woman experiences health concerns, the cause is assumed to be a hormonal imbalance. While this may be true in some cases, in other cases there are underlying causes beyond hormones that are creating symptoms and that can create even more serious problems.
It is also crucial to understand that even if hormones are the cause of health issues, we should not simply accept assuming this is what a woman should go through. Naturopathic Medicine can treat the underlying causes of many assumed hormonal symptoms and provide relief.
Another common issue in women is that they are considered as a caregiver for the family, children, and ageing parents. People assume that women should be strong or superwomen who can complete everything that needs to be done. Because of this, women keep giving all they can and push aside their health concerns. Unfortunately, this implies women push themselves to the point of breaking before they seek help. A Naturopathic Doctor can help women look at their lifestyle, diet, also how much time they should take for themselves. The doctor can also help in directing women to a more balanced approach to living.
Some of the common health issues are:
Mood changes or irritability
Polycystic ovaries and more
Even if you do not feel anything is wrong, but perhaps feel lack of energy to do what you used to do, there may be an underlying issue that a Naturopathic Doctor can help resolve.
Following a healthy, balanced diet and getting regular physical exercise is essential for maintaining a healthy body and mind. Though it sounds simple, it’s often hard for many people to consistently follow these healthy routines. Our Naturopathic Doctors spend hours working with patients to help them understand the value and role of lifestyle changes and to help them overcome personal barriers to applying these healthy strategies. Holistic Healing Arts offers one-on-one lifestyle counselling in Brantford and surrounding areas. Some diseases, such as high cholesterol, obesity, hypertension, type 2 diabetes and more can be reversed through the implementation of changes in lifestyle, diet, and approach to the situational stresses in life.
Our professionals have in-depth training in the paradigm of mind, spirit, and body. Counselling can help each patient reduce the risk of diseases, attain wellbeing, and improve the overall quality of life. Various strategies can be applied to help patients implement lifestyle changes, and encourage them to start healthy activities.
