Is There Research on Naturopathic Medicine?

You bet there is.  Here’s an overview of some interesting natural medicine research:

  1. Alcohol extract of sage enhances memory (Psychopharmacology 2008; 198(1): 127-139)
  2. Standardised willow bark extract continues to show benefit for painful osteoarthritis, with similar effectiveness and better tolerance than conventional therapy. (Phytomedicine 2008 15(11):907-913)
  3. Garlic standardised for allicin content and administered in a slow-release tablet had a cholesterol-lowering effect in mild hypercholesterolaemia. (J Atheroscler Thromb 15(6):334-338)
  4. Several case reports describe where repletion of vitamin D resolved back pain or significantly improved patients’ quality of life, even after failed back surgery. (Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine, February 2009)
  5. Coenzyme Q10 supplementation reduces risk of pre-eclampsia during pregnancy, helps fibromyalgia patients, could improve recovery from cardiac surgery, and may even minimize tumors in breast cancer. International Journal of Gynecology and Obstetrics, January 2009, Clinical Biochemistry, December 2008, Journal of Cardiothoracic and Vascular Anesthesia, December 2008, & The British Journal of Nutrition, December 2008, respectively.

Here’s What I Believe

what a naturopath believes

Why Do I Believe in Naturopathic Medicine?

I believe, because I’ve seen success with it time and time again.  People who were told they had a 1% chance of success conceiving and having healthy pregnancies, people who were told that they would never conceive on their own and their only hope was donor eggs, conceiving and having healthy pregnancies naturally, people who had had repeated failed IVF attempts, forgoing all the drugs, turning to vitamins, minerals, diet and herbs and having healthy pregnancies.  I’ve seen acne improved, hair loss stopped, skin cleared, digestion working normally, hot flashes relieved, weight loss, energy and vitality returned to normal, breathing cleared, babies made, cramps gone, thyroid and immune function restored and on and on.

When you’ve witnessed it for 16+ years with your own eyes, you can’t help but believe in the power of the human body to heal and the power of nature to help it along.   We can help you too, call us at 416-481-0222 or book online now.
