Pain & Inflammation


Pain & Inflammation

There is nothing more debilitating than chronic pain. Inflammation is the body's natural response to injury, infection, and toxicity but when it becomes chronic, it can lead to a host of health problems, including pain. Typical medical treatment never addresses the underlying causes of inflammation and pain - instead toxic pain-relieving medications are recommended that can potentially have serious side effects.

Fortunately, there are safe naturopathic approaches to addressing pain and inflammation that can help you find freedom from discomfort and personalized solutions that can take you to optimized wellness.

At the heart of naturopathic care is the emphasis on wellness. Rather than just treating the symptoms of pain and inflammation, we work to optimize overall health and wellbeing, which can lead to long-term relief from discomfort. This may involve changes to diet and lifestyle, an anti-inflammatory detoxification program, and powerful natural remedies and supplements that address the underlying causes of pain and inflammation.

We employ a variety of Functional Medicine tests to find out what’s going on in your body. We then suggest a number of natural remedies that can be used to address pain and inflammation. This could include highly researched herbal extracts from herbs such as turmeric and ginger, for example, which have anti-inflammatory properties. Omega-3 fatty acids, found in fish oil and flaxseed oil, can also be effective in reducing inflammation. Avoiding food sensitivities and doing a detoxification program is vital for lowering inflammation. Other natural modalities, such as acupuncture and massage therapy, can also be used to address pain and inflammation.

With our personalized treatment plans, you can take control of your health and get back out and enjoy your life.
