Address The Root Cause With Naturopathic Solutions

Are you struggling with any of the conditions below? If so, there are natural solutions which may help.

Annex Naturopathic’s team of integrative healthcare practitioners are experienced in providing treatment for:

Immune System Health

The main role of the immune system is to protect you from pathogens (think viruses, bacteria) that you encounter on a daily basis. However, many people suffer from conditions that are a result of an imbalanced or weakened immune system. Autoimmune disorders (such as lupus, psoriasis, multiple sclerosis) and atopic disorders (such as asthma, allergies, eczema) are examples of conditions that can result from an dysfunctional immune system. Naturopathic medicine can help you find ways to strengthen and balance your immune system to reduce the severity and intensity of your symptoms, and in some cases, resolve the condition.

Stress & Fatigue

Do you often feel anxious? Are you having a hard time dealing with stress? Do you feel tired all the time, despite getting the proper amount of sleep? Are you having trouble sleeping? As our lives become increasingly demanding, these symptoms are becoming more common in the modern world. As a result, developing strong stress management strategies are more important than ever. If you feel your high-stress life is negatively impacting your health, naturopathic medicine offers a number of different solutions that can help you continue to operate at your best.

Digestive Issues

Have you been told you have IBS (irritable bowel syndrome)? IBS is a presentation of unexplained symptoms, not an actual disease and is considered a diagnosis of exclusion. Symptoms such as bloating, gas, cramping and irregular bowel function can be explained by assessing the root cause of what may be impairing your digestive health. Addressing “the why” of digestive dysfunction is important because modern research has shown us that the digestive system can strongly influence the health of the whole body. Naturopathic doctors can offer effective solutions for addressing why you have these symptoms and restoring your gut health.

Hormonal Concerns

Hormones play an exceptionally large role in the overall health of our bodies. Not only do they control the balance of our reproductive health, they influence our metabolism, sex drive, immune system, digestive system, cognitive function, and much more. How do you know if your hormones are out of balance? Different people can feel different things, but simply put, if your hormones require support, you may notice that you just don’t feel like yourself. If you believe you may have a hormonal imbalance, Annex Naturopathic’s team of experienced naturopathic doctors can help.

More About Us

Services Offered

At Annex Naturopathic Clinic, we have an in-house, comprehensive botanical and supplement dispensary to complement your treatment recommendations.

Depending on your healthcare needs, your naturopathic doctor may recommend the following.

Classical Osteopathy

Are you dealing with chronic pain, anxiety, or depression? These conditions can hold you back from living a life of optimal health. An osteopathic manual therapy practitioner (OMTP) can help.

Osteopathic manual therapy is a form of gentle, drugless therapy developed in the 1800s. If you’re dealing with chronic pain, insomnia, stress, anxiety, or a chronic illness, an OMTP may have a place on your healthcare team.

Acupuncture

Are you facing a high degree of stress or anxiety? Do you have digestive issues you can’t seem to solve? Is chronic pain making everyday life more difficult? If so, acupuncture may be just what you need.

Acupuncture is a millennia-old form of medicine that has been proven effective as a treatment for many modern ailments. Contact Annex Naturopathic to find out if acupuncture is right for you.

Functional Laboratory Testing

In order to assess your health concerns, your naturopathic doctor may recommend routine and/or specialized testing.

Routine bloodwork may include nutrient testing (iron, vitamin B12, vitamin D), serum hormones (thyroid, sex hormones), metabolic testing (blood sugar, cholesterol) and inflammatory markers.

Examples of specialized testing include  food sensitivity testing, urinary hormone assessments, or heavy metal testing. This combination of natural treatments with scientific lab analysis will help your naturopathic doctor provide better care.

Clinical Nutrition

With the vast amount of dietary information available, navigating the world of supplements and dietary philosophies can be overwhelming.

Our naturopathic doctors have extensive training in nutritional biochemistry, functional nutrition and orthomolecular medicine.

Simply put, our NDs can recommend an individualized diet and targeted supplement plan that is most appropriate for your health concerns.  This is anything but a one-size-fits-all approach.

Frequently Asked Questions About Naturopathic Medicine

Do you have questions about naturopathic medicine in general, or Annex Naturopathic in particular? Here are some of the more common questions we hear.

If you don’t see your question on this list, feel free to reach out.

Is a naturopathic doctor a “real” doctor?

Yes, absolutely. A naturopathic doctor is different than a medical doctor or a PhD, but they are still considered doctors. In Ontario, the only people who can call themselves naturopathic doctors are people who hold a valid doctor of naturopathy degree from an accredited naturopathic college.

Isn’t this stuff just “mind over matter”?

While it always helps to have a positive attitude going into any treatment, naturopathic medicine is based on sound scientific principles. Simply put, it works whether you believe in it or not.

Are naturopathic doctors licensed and regulated?

Yes. In Ontario, we’re regulated by the College of Naturopaths of Ontario. They maintain a public register of everyone who is licensed to practice naturopathic medicine in Ontario. It’s always a good idea to visit their register and confirm someone is licensed before seeing them for treatment.

Can a naturopathic doctor help me with ________?

Naturopathic doctors are considered general practitioners. As a result, we’re able to provide treatments for most ailments.

I’m currently taking prescription drugs. Can I still see a naturopathic doctor?

Yes, of course. Naturopathic doctors are trained in the uses and effects of pharmaceutical drugs, as well as any contraindications between them and the treatments we offer. In some cases, we can offer an alternative treatment to a pharmaceutical option, and in others we can offer a solution to reduce the negative side effects that frequently come with pharmaceuticals.
