Naturopathic Medicine

What is Naturopathic Medicine?

Naturopathic medicine is a unique primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It is based on the body’s ability to heal itself through the support and stimulation of natural therapies including botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, lifestyle counseling and health promotion and disease prevention.

Naturopathic medicine treats all forms of health concerns — from pediatric to geriatric, from irritating symptoms to chronic illness and from the physical to the psychological. Common conditions naturopathic doctors can address are:

  • Digestive complaints, including GERD, constipation, food allergies
  • Hormone imbalance, including acne, menopause, infertility, menstrual complaints
  • Stress, anxiety and depression
  • Fatigue and low energy
  • Weight loss, diet and nutrition counseling
  • Cardiovascular diseases, including high blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Allergies, asthma, type 2 diabetes
  • Acute conditions such as colds and flu, yeast infections, UTI’s and more!

What to expect at your first visit:

Your first visit will typically be 1-1.5 hours in length. This visit is designed to gather information relating to your current health concerns as well as a comprehensive understanding of your health history, contributing factors, as well as your personal goals for treatment. Each patient will get an individualized treatment plan that is unique and tailored to their specific concerns and needs.

Most extended health insurance plans cover naturopathic medicine. Check with your provider to determine your coverage.

Dr. Leigh Fisher

From an early age, Dr. Leigh Fisher has had a strong desire to help others and be a part of the healthcare profession. That desire was strengthened while studying health science and biology at Dalhousie University, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science degree. After discovering Naturopathic Medicine and realizing that health is so much more than the absence of disease, but an ability to adapt and thrive, she went on to obtain her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona. Her extensive training and hands on experience with patients has provided her with the ability to offer the best medical care with a natural approach. She sees the growing need in Nova Scotia for additional healthcare options and believes that every patient should have access to quality, as well as individualized health care, that puts them first. She treats every patient uniquely in order to optimize their health. Her primary focus is treating conditions related to women’s health including fertility, menstrual issues, menopause, and PCOS as well as GI issues, hormone imbalance and natural aesthetics.

Dr. Leigh Fisher is a professional member in good standing of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND) and the Nova Scotia Association of Naturopathic Doctors (NSAND). She is also a non-practicing member in good standing of the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta (CNDA).

FOOD FACT FRIDAY🍎🥑🥕
__

Legumes are a class of vegetables that includes beans, lentils, and peas. Eating legumes gives you the best of both worlds when it comes to protein and vegetable benefits!
__

They are packed with protein, iron, zinc, things that you’d expect from other protein-rich foods like meat, but also are packed with things you typically only find in the vegetable kingdom like fiber, folate, and potassium.
__

Bonus points for being naturally low in saturated fat and sodium, having one of the lowest glycemic index and NO cholesterol!
__

One recent study found that eating just a cup of beans, chickpeas, or lentils each day for three months could slow a person’s resting heart rate as much as spending 250 hours on a treadmill! A major factor in reducing the risk of dying prematurely! 😳
