Naturopathic Medicine at CR8WELLNESS

Woman with hand on heartNaturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care profession that emphasizes prevention, treatment, and optimal health through the use of therapeutic methods and substances that encourage individuals’ inherent self-healing processes. This approach combines scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It focuses on treating the whole person and addressing the root causes of illness, rather than merely alleviating symptoms. Naturopathic medicine can benefit health by utilizing a range of therapies including nutrition, lifestyle counseling, herbal medicine, and homeopathy, among others, tailored to the individual’s specific needs. This holistic approach helps improve overall well-being, prevents chronic diseases, and empowers patients to take an active role in their health.

Treatment Options

Lab Testing

Lab testing involves analyzing samples of blood, urine, saliva, stool or tissue to assess health, diagnose conditions and guide treatment. This tool provides insights into a person’s health by revealing nutritional deficiencies and key markers such as hormones, antibodies and disease indicators. Lab testing can identify infections, metabolic disorders, and chronic conditions, helping practitioners customize treatment plans. It’s also crucial for monitoring treatment progress or the effects of lifestyle changes.


Acupuncture has been an integral part of Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. This practice involves inserting thin needles into specific points on the body to promote healing and balance. This practice is rooted in the belief that vital energy, known as “Qi”, flows along pathways called meridians. When this energy is blocked or imbalanced, illness or discomfort can occur. By stimulating particular acupuncture points, practitioners aim to restore the flow of qi, alleviate pain and support the body’s innate healing processes. Acupuncture is widely used to address various conditions including chronic pain, migraines, anxiety, digestive issues, infertility and more.


Homeopathy is based on the principle “like cures like,” meaning that a substance that causes symptoms in a healthy person can be used in small, highly diluted doses to treat similar symptoms in a sick person. Homeopathic remedies are derived from natural sources, such as plants, minerals and animals and the goal is to stimulate the body’s innate healing response, focusing on the persons unique physical, mental and emotional characteristic to find most appropriate remedy.

Cupping Therapy

Cupping therapy involves placing suction cups along parts of the body to stimulate blood flow, relieve muscle tension and promote healing. The suction draws the skin and superficial muscle layer into the cup which can be left stationary or moved across the body for a massage-like effect. Often used to relieve pain, reduce inflammation and increase circulation.

Botanical Medicine

Herbal medicine is rooted in ancient healing traditions. This form of medicine harnesses the therapeutic properties of various herbs, flowers, roots and seeds. Each plant or combination of plants is selected on its known effects on the body’s systems. This includes calming inflammation, supporting digestions, boosting immunity or reducing anxiety.

Lifestyle & Nutrition

Our daily habits, from the foods we eat to the activities we engage in, directly impact our physical and mental well-being. A balanced diet, rich in vitamins, minerals and other essential nutrients, supports body’s physiological function, strengthens immunity and reduces risk of chronic diseases like diabetes. Likewise, regular physical activity enhances heart health and promotes mental clarity. Other lifestyle factors, such as stress management, adequate sleep quality and healthy social connections, further contribute to well-being. Together, these elements form the foundation of holistic health, emphasizing prevention, resilience, and vitality.
