Naturopathic Doctors have variety of tools to help promote health and wellness. Depending on your individual concerns, ND's may use one or a combination of the following natural therapies in your treatment:

Clinical Nutrition

Examining diet and its relationship to health often lays the foundation in naturopathic medicine. Treatment can include dietary modifications as well as supplementation with vitamins, minerals, and functional foods.

Botanical/Herbal Medicine

The use of plants for healing many different health conditions has great value in medicine of the past, present, and future. They can be prescribed individually or in combination in a variety of forms, including teas, tinctures, and capsules.

Homeopathic Medicine

Homeopathy dates back to over 200 years ago. Homeopathic medicines use varying minute dosages of plant, mineral, or animal substances to safely and gently stimulate the body's healing abilities.

Traditional Chinese Medicine/Acupuncture

Asian medicine has a unique philosophy on health and wellness compared to Western perspective. It is based on the regulation of the body's Chi (energy) and utilizes herbs and acupuncture to help correct Chi imbalances.

Prevention and Lifestyle Counselling

Mental, emotional, physical, and environmental factors greatly influence our health. ND's proactively assess risk factors and implement health programs to actively engage patients in their own health choices and health maintenance.

Physical Medicine

Includes a variety of hands-on techniques targeted towards muscles and joints, including soft-tissue work, hydrotherapy, and exercise prescriptions.

Naturopathic Doctors adhere strongly to six guiding principles that outline the fundamental naturopathic approach to health and healing. It is these principles that separate naturopathic medicine from other forms of health care:

First Do No Harm

Naturopathic Doctors treat using safe and effective therapies and medicines. They emphasize gentle approaches to care in order to minimize side effects, stimulate the body's own healing power, and optimize health.

Act in Co-operation with the Healing Power of Nature

Naturopathic Doctors know how smart the human body, mind, and spirit is and work towards stimulating the body's natural healing powers in order to treat disease and ultimately prevent its reoccurrence.

Identify and Treat the Cause

The ultimate goal of your Naturopathic Doctor is to identify and treat the underlying cause of illness, rather than masking and suppressing irritating symptoms.

Treat the Whole Person

Disease affects the entire individual, not just a particular organ or system. Naturopathic Doctors offer a holistic approach to health by carefully assessing all realms of the being including physical, mental, emotional, environmental, and familial factors. Combined with your input, an individualized treatment plan can then be formulated with the expertise of your ND.

Doctor as Teacher

Being an active participant in your own path to wellness is of utmost importance. Your Naturopathic Doctor will help you to understand health and wellness and the contributing factors that can swing your body out of balance. This enables you to have more confidence in maintaining your own health.

Emphasize Disease Prevention and Health Promotion

Naturopathic Doctors use the above principles to actively promote health and prevent disease by assessing and intervening for individual risk factors and familial susceptibility of specific diseases.

Tracy Palmer, ND

Tracy Palmer

I was born and raised in Quispamsis, NB. I completed my Bachelor's of Nursing at the University of New Brunswick, Saint John campus in 2006. I then worked full-time as a Registered Nurse (RN) in an acute care setting at the Saint John Regional Hospital for two years. After a rewarding personal experience with alternative medicine, I followed my heart and pursued further education at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, ON. Here, I was selected to be part of the pediatric specialty shift during my year as a naturopathic intern. I also completed a 4-month internship at a community health clinic in downtown Toronto, providing naturopathic care to under-serviced populations.

I aim to provide a safe, comfortable, non-judgmental space in order to get to know each patient, identify the root cause of health imbalance, and formulate an individualized treatment plan. I believe that educating and motivating patients to be active participants in their own care is what makes long lasting benefits to health and wellness. I am really excited to be back home and provide naturopathic medicine care to my community.

Outside of naturopathic medicine, I am a dog lover and just waiting for the right time to get one of my own. I enjoy spending time with family and friends, attending live music, cooking (not the cleaning), and yoga.
