Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect at my first appointment?

In order to understand the unique needs of each patient, your initial naturopathic assessment is detailed and very comprehensive. As such, your first visit will be one hour in length.  You will be asked to complete a detailed health questionnaire prior to your initial appointment, which you can bring with you, along with any current medications or supplements, and any recent blood work or diagnostic testing.  Follow-up appointments are generally 30 minutes in length.

Is naturopathic medicine covered by OHIP?

Naturopathic medicine is not currently covered by OHIP. However, most private insurance plans cover naturopathic treatments.  A receipt with my licence number will be given to you at the end of your appointment, to submit to your insurance for reimbursement.

How are Naturopathic Doctors educated, licensed and regulated?

Like a medical doctor, dentist or chiropractor, a Naturopathic Doctor is required to complete pre-medical studies at university. A four-year full time program follows at an accredited Naturopathic college prior to writing naturopathic board exams and obtaining licensure.  The College of Naturopaths of Ontario in Toronto is our regulating college.

What conditions or illnesses can benefit from naturopathic medicine?

Many conditions and illnesses can benefit from naturopathic medicine, including but not limited to autism spectrum disorder, allergies, arthritis, eczema, acne, cardiovascular disease, digestive issues, cancer, autoimmune disease, menopause, PMS, infertility, asthma, anxiety and depression, migraines, chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia.
