I hope the paragraphs that follow provide the information you are looking for. If not, please give me a call.

I have had a family Naturopathic Medicine practice in Guelph since 1988. There are five basic principles:
- Stimulate the body’s ability to heal itself.
- Do no harm to the body.
- Find the first cause of the ailment. Remove the cause, not just the symptom(s).
- Educate and empower the individual.
- Treat the whole person, not just the diseased part or system.

There are many tools of Naturopathy including: Homeopathy, Botanical Medicine, Nutrition & Food Sensitivity Testing, body work, and lifestyle counselling. I make use of all these in my practice. However I specialize in Homeopathy, which is a safe and gentle method of stimulating the body’s healing processes. Homeopathy is as powerful as it is gentle and I have had excellent results treating many different illnesses.

My training in Homeopathy required two years of University science and four years at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. This was followed by a three year fellowship with the Canadian Academy of Homeopathy culminating in successful passing of their board exams. As such I am a recognized fellow of the Academy.

Many of my clients ask me during our initial interview if I can help them. I respond by saying that if the body has the potential to heal itself, then Naturopathic Medicine will assist the body to make use of that potential. When the healing process is faulty, blocked, or slow, the Homeopathic remedy acts as a stimulus to the curative powers of the body. The results of Homeopathy are many and deep – more energy, stronger immune system, balanced food desires, emotional well being and of course freedom from the symptoms. 

Your inquiry shows that you are interested in better health and that you are taking responsibility for your health. I support you in finding what you need to do that.
