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.


Nutrition Services

“Nourished – at The Root”

Our Team knows that nutrition is one of  the foundations for optimal health.  It is important to identify dietary factors that may be contributing to your physical as well as emotional health concerns. We are advocates for using food as medicine and teaching you about all facets of holistic health & nutrition. When necessary, high-quality supplement recommendations (and education) may be provided by our Naturopathic Doctors to safely improve levels while working on the underlying causes of the deficiency or increased need.

Naturopathic Individualized Meal Plan

We understand that sometimes the dietary changes a person is required to make can be daunting, causing a lack of compliance & therefore results. This service is intended to take the stress out of figuring out what to eat so you can enjoy your meals, & your healing process.

At The Root, we believe that every time you eat, you are either fighting disease or feeding it.


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.
