Any successful program is consistent with the following basic foundations of good health:

  • A Positive Mental Attitude

  • A Healthy Lifestyle With Regular Exercise

  • A Health Promoting Diet

  • Supplementary Measures (if weight gain has been due to a physiological disease condition)

Our clinic has now introduced a 12 week program that is tailored to your needs and goals to help you look and feel your best by giving you all the right tools to loose that weight and keeping it off. We combine Naturopathy and Hypnotherapy to help you achieve your goals and support you all the way.


Our program consists of:

  1. An initial visit with the naturopathic doctor who will be assessing your health status. She will be doing a detailed comprehensive intake and may suggest various laboratory tests in order to set up a proper treatment plan that is specific for aiding you in your weight management.
  2. Some of the tests that maybe performed include (and are not restricted to):

    • Regular standard blood and urine testing

    • Blood Glucose testing (random and fasting)

    • Comprehensive Thyroid Assessment - A comprehensive analysis of thyroid hormone secretion and metabolism, including central thyroid regulation and activity, peripheral thyroid function, and thyroid autoimmunity. This serum test allows the practitioner to pinpoint commonly occurring imbalances that underlie a broad spectrum of chronic illness.

    • Comprehensive hormonal assessment - Profile analyzes saliva samples for the levels of -estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone, cortisol, melatonin providing clues about menstrual irregularities, infertility, endometriosis, breast cancer, abnormal weight gain and osteoporosis

    • Adrenocortex Stress Profile examines 4 saliva samples over a 24-hour period for levels of cortisol and DHEA, imbalances of which are associated with ailments ranging from obesity and chronic fatigue to immune deficiency and increased risk of cardiovascular disease

    • Food antibody assessment - The incidence of food allergies has increased dramatically over the years, and it is estimated that up to 20% of the population have adverse reactions to foods. Our 93 Food IgG screen allows you to identify foods you may be intolerant to, which in turn affects your health in a negative way such as weight gain, asthma, eczema, congestion among others

    • Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis (CDSA) 2.0 A profile to evaluate digestion, absorption, pancreatic function, and inflammation, in addition to bacterial balance, yeast, and parasite infection. This profile features exclusive new markers for assessing irritable bowel syndrome, sub-mucosal inflammation, colorectal cancer risk, pancreatic insufficiency, and occult infection. Recommended for patients with diffuse and non-specific GI-related symptoms, such as indigestion, dysbiosis, constipation, and diarrhoea

  3. A full comprehensive physical exam that includes a traditional Chinese medicine tongue and pulse diagnosis, a body fat analysis and a random blood glucose test.

  4. Once you have gone through the initial visit and the physical exam, you will be given an individualized weight management treatment plan * based on the results of the two visits, which will have a combination of various naturopathic modalities such as clinical nutrition with supplements, exercise plans specific for you taking into consideration your lifestyle and daily routine, along with a combination of alternative therapies such as acupuncture and hypnotherapy to help you achieve your desired weight management goal. We will provide you with all the support and guidance you may need from us to help you reach your health goal.
