Tips on using natural medicines
Interactions
Because natural medicines can be so effective, it is important that you understand how they may interact with other prescription medications you are taking. Naturopathic doctors are specially trained in understanding these interactions and can offer you suggestions on how to accommodate the medications you currently take.

Quality
Natural medicines can have powerful effects on health when formulated correctly and used at the proper dosage.

Due to the growing popularity of natural medicine, there is an increasingly wide range of products available to the public. Many of these products contain fillers, chemical solvent residues and are contaminated with yeast or mold.

Fortunately, there are a number of labs that independently test for the effectiveness and purity of their formulations. For your convenience, Remède Naturopathics provides natural medicines from the best of these labs, since many of them do not supply to health food stores or pharmacies.

therapies and programs
One of the reasons naturopathic medicine is so effective is that it allows naturopathic doctors to combine different therapies in unique ways. Our clinic is proud to offer you a spectrum of naturopathic therapies, including the latest advances in naturopathic research.

remède in-clinic therapies

The mind-body connection is a powerful healing tool and can be a critical component of a wellness plan. To assist in creating a positive connection between the body and mind, our in-clinic therapies are designed to be as soothing and rejuvenating as they are effective.
Hydrotherapy
Our clinic offers hydrotherapy techniques that assist your body in recovering from acute and chronic illness by bringing systems back into balance. Hydrotherapy is often recommended as a supportive therapy: the physiological effects can greatly increase your body's response to botanical medicines, special diets, homeopathy and nutritional supplementation.

Phytotherapy
While you lie comfortably, botanical applications, formulated specifically for you, will be applied to different areas to trigger a localized response. This therapy is often used to stimulate the function of particular organs or to deliver phytotherapeutic agents to areas that are more difficult to reach with oral botanical medicines.

Far-Infrared Sauna
Infrared sauna therapy has been the subject of much research and is one of the most advanced naturopathic techniques for detoxification. Promoting health in a wide variety of conditions through detoxification is a great way to keep yourself well. There is substantial literature that suggests that there is a connection between barriers to the body's natural detoxification process and chronic diseases, including ADHD, cancer, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia and multiple chemical sensitivities.

For this therapy, you will have our peaceful sauna room all to yourself and there is a private, in-room shower for your use following your session. Unlike traditional steam saunas, where the air becomes super-heated, making it difficult to tolerate for extended periods, our infrared sauna allows you to relax comfortably and feel the benefits of extended periods of raised body temperature.

Traditional Chinese Medicine
Rooted in Taoist philosophy, Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) is an ancient healing system derived from thousands of years of observation, investigation, and clinical experience. It is a truly holistic system that sees the body-mind processes as an integrated whole.

TCM views the environment, a person's mental-emotional state, diet, and lifestyle as equally important factors in a person's well-being. When balanced, these lead to harmony and a healthy existence.

TCM modalities include acupuncture, moxibustion, cupping and gua-sha, and herbal medicine, all of which are means of promoting and maintaining health within the body. A preventive system, it detects imbalances before they manifest as disease, boosts immunity, reduces stress, improves sleep quality, and creates emotional balance.

Acupuncture
Acupuncture is a form of Traditional Chinese Medicine that focuses on balancing the body's energy, called qi (pronounced "chee"), When the flow of qi is disturbed, disharmony and illness can occur. The insertion of fine, hair-thin needles redirect and balance the movement of energy, resulting in a clinically therapeutic effect that restores harmony to mind, body, and spirit.

Moxibustion
A warming therapy, moxibustion involves burning of moxa, known in Western medicine as artimesia, for therapeutic effects. Frequently used in TCM to treat arthritis, lower back pain, and tight muscles, this modality stops pain and increases circulation in injured areas of the body.

Sound Therapy
The use of tuning forks to stimulate acupuncture points is a needle-free alternative to acupuncture that heals and balances the body's energy. Vibrations from the forks gently travel through acupuncture meridians and enhance the effect of traditional acupuncture. Patients generally find this treatment extremely soothing and grounding. This gentle therapy is wonderful for children.

Cupping & Gua-Sha
Localized treatments that increase blood flow to injured or oxygen-deficient areas, these modalities are extremely useful for sports injuries and muscle tension. They can be used to strengthen the body's immunity or release pathological heat or toxicity.

Microcurrent
Gentle electrical stimulation (or micro-currents) is frequently used in physical therapy and acupuncture to relieve chronic pain and speed healing. Most effective for acute sports injury, lower back pain, sciatica, post-herpetic neuralgia, and nausea after chemotherapy, acupuncture needles are gently stimulated, through clips attached to the needles. This therapy can also be used in conjunction with auricular (ear) acupuncture for treating addiction.

Chinese Herbal Medicine
The use of herbal formulas is an important component of TCM. The combination of acupuncture and herbs is more powerful than either modality alone for managing various conditions in the body. Formulas used are effective, safe, and generally do not cause undesirable side effects.

Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is one of the most ancient and venerable healing arts. Recent studies show that human touch is crucial to physical, psychological, and emotional development and well-being. We simply cannot have wellness in our lives without positive touch, a fact that can be overlooked in our often chaotic lives.

swedish massage
When most people think of massage, they are thinking of Swedish massage. Swedish massage is the classic western massage technique which combines kneading, long smooth strokes and stretching to improve circulation and to relax and loosen muscles. The pressure and intensity of the massage strokes are determined by the client's preference.

Swedish massage can be enjoyed by most everyone, including those with chronic medical conditions and injuries. Benefits of Swedish massage can include stress and pain reduction, improved sleep, improved flexibility, enhanced immune system function and improved mood.

deep tissue massage
Deep tissue massage provides the benefits of Swedish massage alongside deeper, more focused pressure.

During deep tissue massage, the therapist manipulates soft tissue structures using techniques such as stretches, trigger point therapy, and myofascial release. These techniques offer significant benefits for the patient: trigger point therapy, a technique that addresses tender points along bands of muscle, reduces generalized pain, while myofascial release improves range of motion by freeing layers of tissue that have improperly adhered after an injury.

Deep tissue massage is aimed at achieving specific results. Research shows that benefits include greater range of motion and fluidity of movement, reduction of pain, release of toxins, improved circulation, reduction of scar tissue after muscle tears and fractures, and improved mood, relaxation, and overall well-being.
