Treatments practiced by Michelle Meyer, N.D.

Clinical nutrition
Clinical nutrition examines the relationship between diet and health. Special diets may be recommended, and treatment may include nutritional supplements such as vitamins, minerals, enzymes, and other nutraceuticals.

Botanical (herbal) medicine
The use of plants for healing dates back to the beginnings of civilization and is the foundation of modern pharmacology. Plant substances from around the world are used for their healing effects and nutritional value.

Body-centered psychotherapy
Michelle Meyer N.D. supports patients in developing their understanding of the link between emotional and physical well-being. Somatic (body) memory of emotional experiences, both positive and traumatic, is made conscious through subtle or vigorous physical exercises, breathing techniques and mindfulness training. Michelle Meyer supports patients to explore how emotional issues are connected to body awareness and body sensations, including physical disease states and other health conditions and integrates her body-centered approach with conventional psychological process work to allow a deeper experience of personal healing on all levels.

Homeopathic medicine
Based on the principle of “like cures like”, homeopathic medicine has been used by naturopathic doctors since the 1700s. Energetic traces of natural substances are used to stimulate the body’s self-healing abilities.

Physical medicine
A variety of hands-on techniques for the spine, joints and soft tissues are used including hydrotherapy massage and cranio-sacral therapy.

Lifestyle counselling
Michelle Meyer  N.D. helps patients to make effective lifestyle choices. This includes consideration of decisions made regarding physical, emotional, nutritional and environmental factors impacting our health.

Naturopathic medicine complements conventional medicine
Naturopathic treatments are often combined with conventional medical treatments. When needed,  patients are referred to other practitioners including medical doctors, chiropractors, massage therapists and midwives.
