What is Naturopathic Medicine?

At The Root Natural Health Clinic, we view everyone individually and holistically, meaning that all systems on physical and mental-emotional levels are considered. Symptoms of disease are seen as signals of improper functioning. It is important to not only focus on the symptoms, but to work to determine and address the root cause of these signals. We believe that educating our patients on the WHY of their assessment, and the HOW of their plan is imperative. This allows you to feel connected, involved, and empowered – everyone deserves that kind of care.

Naturopathic Medicine encompasses a wide range of therapeutic tools including Clinical Nutrition, Botanical Medicine, Traditional Chinese Medicine and Acupuncture, and Emotional & Lifestyle Counselling. We always encourage using food as medicine and working to build a lifestyle that allows your healing to occur, and to be maintained.

The initial consultation with one of our Naturopathic Doctors will take up to 90 minutes and includes a thorough intake of your health concerns and goals, a complete health history, as well as your individualized treatment plan. Follow up appointments are then scheduled based on your individual need.

From the moment I walked into The Root Natural Health Clinic, my experience has been simply wonderful. From the lovely tea that is offered upon your arrival, to the Zen-like atmosphere, and of course the amazing staff. I’ve been seeing Dr. Lauren Wedlock Brown as my Naturopathic Dr. and have been impressed with her level of expertise, calm and nurturing aura, and her professionalism.
