Naturopathic Medicine

Heidi Lescanec NDNaturopathic Medicine is a primary healthcare system that aims to treat illness by uncovering the root cause of disease. Drawing upon both traditional and modern approaches to medicine, it utilizes the bodies innate ability to heal itself and return to a state of wellness through the absence of disease. In this manner it seeks to remove, and not merely treat, ill health by restoring the body to a more balanced, proper state of function.

In my naturopathic practice I am committed to understanding an individual?s unique history and health goals and examining all the determinants of wellness: physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. In the initial visit, I undertake a complete health intake and any relevant physical exams in order to diagnose the underlying root cause of a problem. I utilize the traditional naturopathic modalities of clinical nutrition, dietary and lifestyle counselling, botanical medicine, homeopathy, and acupuncture. I believe that an integration of these therapies as well as guidance on daily choices and self-care options serves most effectively to inform and support patients on the path to optimal health.
As a general practitioner, I treat most chronic and acute conditions, including (but not limited to):

  • Allergies
  • Auto-immune Conditions
  • Digestive Imbalances
  • Food Sensitivities
  • Hormone Imbalances
  • Immune System Support
  • Mental Health Issues
  • Nervous System Imbalance
  • Nutritional Counselling
  • Skin Conditions (such as Acne, Eczema, and Psoriasis)
  • Special Dietary Needs
  • Stress Management
  • Weight Management
  • Women’s Health Issues
