Naturopathic Medicine

“Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.”

– Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors.

 

Our team of doctors will support you with health promotion and disease prevention strategies. Interventions can include pain management using regenerative injection techniques, clinical nutritional counseling, botanical medicine, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy and acupuncture, among other methods.

Popular Services

REGENERATIVE INJECTION THERAPY: PROLOTHERAPY & PRP

At Rize, our Naturopathic Doctors are trained in ultrasound guided regenerative injection techniques, allowing for precision targeted treatment of musculoskeletal conditions. We are currently offering prolotherapy and platelet rich plasma injections.

With the guidance of ultrasound, you and the doctor can see the structure that would benefit from injection, see the needle tip touch the exact point and finally see the fluid infiltrate that structure.  This results in significantly higher accuracy of injecting at the correct spot than blind (without imaging) and thereby optimizes the potential regenerative results of the injections.

PROLOTHERAPY

A nonsurgical regenerative injection treatment used to repair damaged soft tissues such as tendons, ligaments and joints. Guided by ultrasound, the dextrose-prolotherapy solution is injected into damaged tissues to promote your body to form new connective tissue and self-heal. Most commonly used for back pain, prolotherapy is also frequently used for knees, hips, shoulders, and other joints and ligaments.

PRP (PLATELET RICH PLASMA THERAPY)

Prepared by taking your own blood and running it through our Arthrex Angel System Centrifuge to concentrate your platelet cells, PRP is a form of regenerative injection therapy that harness the healing power of activated platelets to regenerate soft tissue to promote repair.  Platelets are blood cell fragments that cause necessary growth healing functions and play a key role in the body’s natural healing process.

Guided by ultrasound, PRP is often used for injection into a damaged tendon, ligament or joint.  PRP is also used cosmetically as a natural alternative cosmetic filler or for facial rejuvenation. Our doctors are train in both precision ultrasound guided PRP for joint, tendon and ligament regeneration in addition to cosmetic PRP for facial and hair rejuvenation, scar treatment and anti-aging strategies.

NUTRITION CONSULTATION

Our diets are often key contributors to chronic disease, inflammation, autoimmune conditions and hormone imbalances.  Addressing nutrition is critical in the journey to achieving optimal health.  Our doctors will provide detailed nutritional and supplementation guidance in the form of a wellness plan for acute and long-term needs.

HORMONE THERAPY

Hormones are essential chemicals that signal the cells in our bodies, telling them what to do.  When hormones are working optimally, sleep, mood, lean body mass and many other important aspects of the body are improved.  When hormones are out of balance, a host of symptoms including cognitive, cardiovascular and sexual functioning can be impacted.  Our doctors will examine your lifestyle and medical history and can use an array of tests to determine if there is a hormone imbalance.  Based on your results, they will create a personalized program towards optimal hormone balance.

 

Some of the common issues often associated with hormone imbalance include:

  • Menstrual problems
  • Difficulty with fertility and conception; optimization of female & male hormones
  • Loss of confidence, energy and drive
  • Reduction in libido
  • Osteoporosis
  • Memory loss, disorientation and loss of mental acuity
  • Persistent issues with weight gain and fatigue
  • Issues with acne
  • Insomnia and poor energy
  • Difficulty with menopause or other hormone transitions associated with aging

TESTS & LABS AVAILABLE AT RIZE

  • DUTCH Test
  • GI MAP
  • Cyrex Food Tests

IV & OZONE THERAPIES

IV therapy involves the slow infusion of vitamins, minerals and amino acids directly into the bloodstream to provide a fast and efficient way to deliver personalized fluids and nutrients to the body. IV therapy bypasses digestion where nutrient availability may be lost in the digestive process.  Our doctors will prepare a solution tailored to your individual needs and you can enjoy one of our big comfy chairs and entertainment as your infusion is delivered.

 

IV Therapy is commonly used for:

  • Boosting mood and energy
  • Preventing/treating illness
  • Reducing symptoms
  • Improving recovery
  • Improving cognitive function
  • Chelation therapy for improved blood flow, cardiovascular function and heavy metal detoxification
  • Improving chronic conditions, such as: Migraines, Chronic Infection, Chronic Fatigue, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and Ulcerative Colitis.

 

Ozone Therapy delivered by Major Autohemotherapy involves drawing blood and into an IV bag and infusing it with medical ozone (O3) to be intravenously injected back into the body.  As we age, we become less efficient at transporting and using oxygen which is critical to thousands of vital chemical reactions in the body.  Stress, infections, sleep deprivation, poor nutrition and other factors also reduce our ability to efficiently oxygenate the body’s tissues. Ozone therapy stimulates oxygenation, improves energy production, metabolism, the immune system and acts as an antimicrobial agent.

Ozone therapy is frequently used to help treat conditions including: Autoimmune Diseases, Chronic Infections, Skin Conditions, Immune Deficiency, and Cardiovascular Disease.

REGISTERED MASSAGE THERAPY

Massage therapy consists of hands-on manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, specifically, the muscles, connective tissue, tendons, ligaments and joints for the purpose of optimizing health.  Massage Therapy can help improve physical function while at the same time relieve and prevent physical dysfunction, pain and the effects of stress.

 

The Registered Massage Therapist will create a personalized treatment plan based on an initial assessment of the condition of your muscles and joints and your health history.

FASCIAL STRETCH THERAPY (FST)

FST is a table-based assisted stretching that improves the mobility of your nerves & the flexibility of your muscles and fascia by focusing on the fascial lines that connect through and wrap around muscle, nerves, organs etc.  The goal with FST is to achieve optimal flexibility, strength, performance and pain relief.  FST creates release through a gentle, pain free, traction/contract and relax approach.

 

Your fascial stretch therapist will cater the sessions to your specific needs and leave you feeling relaxed and decompressed.  Mobility is often improved after the first treatment and many report a decrease in stress, improved sleep and a decrease in pain in as little as three treatments.
