Naturopathic medicine

Chronic Conditions

For those with chronic conditions there is a limit to what standard medical care can do. While we are grateful for them, we take medications and we cope.

Naturopathic medicine can assist with decreasing symptoms, decreasing side-effects from medications, and sometimes can reverse chronic conditions.

Having the time to spend with patients working on lifestyle changes in tandem with our various therapies, makes NDs a very valuable asset in treating those with chronic diseases - the fast growing need in health care in Canada today.

Some of the common chronic conditions Dr. Smith treats are:

  • hypertension, high cholesterol & heart disease
  • obesity
  • diabetes
  • autoimmune diseases
  • headaches, neck pain, chronic back pain & arthritis
  • lower digestive system disorders (e.g. Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, constipation, irritable bowel syndrome, fissures and hemorrhoids)
  • upper digestive system disorders (e.g. gastroesophageal reflux disorder, ulcers, hiatus hernia)
