Conditions Treated

At Port Moody Health, our naturopathic physicians take the time to understand your symptoms, identify the obstacles and help you design a road map to achieve your health goals. View the variety of ways a naturopath doctor can treat your health conditions.

What to Expect from the PMH Experience

During your initial visit, the physician will conduct a thorough review of systems, with a focus on the area of concern. Whether you have a single concern or multiple complex symptoms, our objective is to help identify which system(s) is involved and determine the best course of treatment. If further testing is required to determine the best treatment approach, this will be discussed during your visit. For instance, if your primary concern involves your hormones, your physician may recommend specific blood, saliva or urine testing to help identify the areas of imbalance and guide appropriate treatment planning.

Knowledge is a Powerful Tool

At Port Moody Health, we believe you should be actively involved in your health care, including the right to be informed about the potential causes and contributing factors to your health concerns, diseases you may be at greater risk of developing and what you can do to prevent and identify disease in its earliest stage. Knowledge can be a powerful tool and motivator for change.

Personalized Treatment For Sustainable Success

Before beginning treatment, we ensure you are sufficiently informed about what is involved, what the treatment is aimed to achieve and the expected duration. Successful treatment may be as simple as making a few dietary changes, or it may require a more complex approach that integrates other therapies.

If supplements or other therapies are prescribed, the objective is to use these therapies to provide the support the body needs to achieve balance and sustain the desired outcome, while we simultaneously teach you the dietary and lifestyle skills to maintain your health. In other words, treatment in the form of supplements or therapy is temporary in most cases – as long as you learn and adopt the behaviours to nourish your body.
