Who can benefit from Naturopathic medicine?

Although seeing a doctor is often prompted out of a health concern, Naturopathic medicine is also uniquely suited for those who simply want to optimize their health (energy, longevity, reduce future risk of diseases, nutritional status, etc).

In seeing a Naturopathic Doctor you can expect a thorough assessment (initial visits are 60 minutes in length), an evidence-based approach to diagnosis and treatment, and a treatment plan that involves an individualized blend of nutrition, supplements, botanicals, and lifestyle counselling.

What to expect at your initial visit

Your initial visit is a 60-minute appointment during which Dr. Lovink will take a thorough health history.

Since objective data is an important aspect of getting to the root cause of your health concern, Dr. Lovink will also discuss what laboratory testing would be most appropriate.

Basic laboratory testing (through Lifelabs) is a key component of your health assessment, therefore if you have had any laboratory work done in the past 6 months please bring these to your first appointment.
