Naturopathic medicine strives to help every person achieve and maintain the best health possible.   By addressing the underlying causes of ill health, and choosing the best treatment options for each individual, we work with each patient to restore balance and improve health.  We believe that everyone can benefit from naturopathic health care, so are committed to treating people of all ages, and with acute or chronic conditions.  We also work with people interested in optimizing their health or preventing future health problems.  Naturopathic physicians have a wide variety of gentle, yet effective tools which restore balance with minimal side effects, including nutritional & lifestyle counselling, herbal medicine, homeopathy, drainage therapy and lifestyle counselling. 



Dr. Dawson and Dr. Clarke offer naturopathic medicine for the entire family and are trained to diagnose and treat a full range of acute and chronic health concerns.Using extensive history taking, physical exam, and lab tests, they strive to help you discover and correct the root cause or contributing factors to your health concerns.  They will work with you, step by step, to help you improve and maintain your health.

Natural Medicine Dispensary

We have a medicinal dispensary located within the clinic, offering our patients a wide variety of high quality supplements, herbal medicines, and homeopathic medicines.

 

Diet & Nutritional Counselling

Our naturopathic physicians offer individualized dietary and nutritional counselling to help you achieve a healthy, well-balanced diet that is most appropriate for you based on your current state of health. The primary focus is on addressing nutritional deficiencies or imbalances and improving overall quality of food intake. Other goals are to: improve digestive health; identify and remove possible food sensitivities/allergies; incorporate changes to maintain a healthy weight, balance hormones, and manage blood sugar. We also offer a variety of 'therapeutic diets' to help manage specific medical conditions (i.e. IBS, Crohn's/Colitis, Diabetes, etc.)

 

Intravenous (IV) Nutrient Therapy

A generally safe and effective method of rapidly delivering higher doses of essential vitamins and minerals directly into the bloodstream in order to bypass the digestive process and enhance absorption.  An IV nutrient infusion typically contains a complex of B vitamins (including B5, B6, B12), vitamin C, magnesium, and calcium. This service is offered by Dr. Baili Clarke, ND.  

Naturopathic Manipulation

A process of identifying mis-alignments or "subluxations" in the spine that cause acute and chronic pain, as well as other bodily disturbances, by impinging on muscles and nerves.  Relief can be achieved by physically re-aligning the spine through gentle adjustments or "manipulations". This service is offered by Dr. Baili Clarke, ND.

 

Acupuncture 

A 2,000 year old medicine that originated in China and is still used safely and effectively today throughout the world. An acupuncture protocol (typically 6-8 treatments), dietary recommendations, and an herbal formula are usually prescribed to restore balance between the organs in the body. This is a very effective treatment for managing acute and chronic PAIN. This service is offered by Dr. Baili Clarke, ND.
