Naturopathic Medicine & Environmental Medicine
Naturopathic Medicine is a system of medicine that understands our natural healing ability and aims to heal the whole person by addressing the root cause through individualized treatment. Treatments are safe and does not cause harm, scientifically evidence based and clinically practiced by a growing number of integrative practitioners. The intention of Naturopathic Medicine is to improve health today, so we can look forward to a healthier future. Naturopathic Doctors see patients who want to maintain their health and prevent heart attack, stroke, cancer, arthritis, and the so called “symptoms of aging”. Other patients may have seen multiple specialists but have not been given answers or have tried several treatments with minimal success. Ultimately, we would like to help our patients understand the importance of living well and preventive medicine.
The combination of therapies used to support restoring and healing the body are:
- Botanical Medicine
- Clinical Nutrition
- Diet Therapy
- Lifestyle Counseling
- Intravenous Nutrient Therapy
- Nutrient Injections
Our Naturopathic Doctors are licensed through the College of Naturopathy in Ontario and all have completed their medical training at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (one of only 2 accredited institutions in Canada).

At EnviroMed clinic, our medical focus is Environmental Medicine. Our practitioners assess your symptoms to identify whether toxins and toxicants are a primary causative agent. We take a detailed exploration of your current and past exposures and request additional lab testing if needed. Our doctors, have received training from the father of Environmental Medicine, Dr. Walter Crinnion. He has over 30 years of experience in this field and continues to keep our practitioners updated on various chemicals used in our everyday life that are linked to serious health problems, even cancer.
Our initial assessment is 1.5 hours to obtain a thorough understanding of all your symptoms, residence, job history, and hobbies. This may result in further analysis through blood, urine, or saliva to obtain quantitative measures of current and past toxic exposures. These tests are measured against the most accurate reference ranges that have been published from the largest environmental exposure studies at the Centre for Disease Control (CDC) and the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES).
Toxicants investigated include:
- MycoToxins (toxins released from mold)
- Heavy Metals (e.g. mercury, lead, arsenic, aluminum, thallium, etc.)
- Chlorinated Pesticides
- Organic Phosphate Pesticides
Our treatment plan is a combination of avoidance, reduction of exposures and in-clinic treatments.These therapies are designed to provide nutrients that support the body’s natural detoxification pathways. Our goal is to lead our patients on a path of healthy living through education on how to make lifestyle decisions to reduce total toxic body burden.
