FAQ

Is naturopathic medicine covered by O.H.I.P?

Although not covered by O.H.I.P., many extended healthcare plans provide coverage for naturopathic treatments and acupuncture performed by a naturopathic doctor. Contact your extended healthcare provider to determine if your benefits package includes naturopathic medicine.

How does naturopathic medicine differ from conventional medicine?

Naturopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine in philosophy of health and in therapies utilized. Naturopathic Medicine focuses on determining and treating the root causes of illness as opposed to symptom management and considers prevention and integration of body, mind and spirit essential to overall health. Treatments do not include pharmaceutical drugs or major surgery, although if these are necessary, you will certainly be advised to speak to your medical doctor for treatment or referral to the appropriate specialist. As Naturopathic Medicine approaches treatment of illness from a “health building” perspective, and conventional medicine approaches it from a “disease management” perspective, they can be used in a complementary fashion to create a truly comprehensive and optimal treatment plan for your health concern.

Do you work with conventional care providers?
