Naturopathic medicine is a system of alternative medicine that aims to treat or prevent disease without the use of prescription drugs or surgery. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity. Treating both acute and chronic conditions, naturopathic treatments are chosen based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors.
In Canada, the naturopathic medical profession’s infrastructure includes accredited educational institutions, professional licensing, national standards of practice, participation in many federal health committee initiatives, and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research.
The team of highly-trained and accredited health professionals at Eclipse is committed to naturopathic medicine. Our Calgary Naturopaths are primary care practitioners trained to treat all health concerns, from acute to chronic, pediatric to geriatric, and physical to psychological.
In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy and homeopathy may also be used to:
- Prevent disease
- Relieve pain
- Promote health and avoid frequent bouts of cold, flu and other common ailments
- Slow the degenerative disease process
- Treat patients with a range of health concerns but no clear diagnosis
- Treat chronic and severe illnesses
- Increase energy
- Improve fitness, weight-loss, and vitality
- Reduce stress and feel better!
Treatment is highly individualized. Each patient’s unique story is paramount to their treatment.
We have a number of Naturopathic Doctors at Eclipse, each focusing on specific health concerns such as Pediatrics, Oncology, IV Therapy, G.I/ Digestive Issues, Mental health, Diet/Nutrition, Fertility/ Maternity, Woman’s/Men’s Health and Food Sensitivities amongst many more.
