Main Street Naturopathic Clinic, located at 616 Main Street North, offers a variety of alternative approaches to health and wellness
Main Street Naturopathic Clinic offers a natural health alternative for anyone in the community looking for new ways to stay healthy and wishing to promote a stronger sense of well-being.
With a more personalized approach to health, the medical professionals at Main Street Naturopathic dig deep to explore the root causes of your ailment and offer a personalized treatment plan that’s right for you.
“Everything is individualized. Naturopathic doctors are a little bit different – they actually spend the time (to learn a patient’s individual needs), so the first consultation is actually 90 minutes long,” confirmed Tamara Draper, the clinic’s colon hydrotherapist.
Draper explained how different protocols must be taken in the administration of care, and individuals with medical conditions ranging from auto-immune disease to those struggling with weight loss are accommodated at the local clinic.
“We also have high-quality supplements that you can purchase at the clinic,” she added.
Dr. Lynn Chiasson (B.Sc., ND) is the licensed naturopathic doctor at Main Street Naturopathic. She studied at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto, Ont., and opened the local practice in 2003.
Katelyn Dyck is the clinic’s holistic nutritionist, and for any skincare ailments, Laura Erickson is on hand as the holistic skincare specialist.
Of the many services provided at Main Street Naturopathic Clinic, Draper recommended two that may be right for adults over the age of 55.
“IV therapy is kind of like taking supplements, but instead of taking them orally, you’re taking them directly into your blood stream,” Draper explained.
“When you take your vitamins that way, you get 100 per cent absorption because it bypasses your gastrointestinal system.”
Seniors often take a wide range of supplements, and this alternative provides a far easier approach.
“If you think of your body as a bucket, the lower your bucket is, the worse you’re going to start to feel. IV therapy helps to fill up that bucket, and the supplements help to maintain it.”
Draper noted that the therapy program also boosts immunity and helps to reduce stress in her patients.
Colon hydrotherapy, also referred to as colonic irrigation, is a safe and gentle internal bath that deeply cleanses the body’s colon of toxins to help promote bodily health. Following the procedure, patients normally report feeling a sense of renewed energy and stronger mental clarity.
Just a few of the conditions that respond well to colon hydrotherapy, according to the clinic, include acid reflux or indigestion, allergies and asthma, bloating and gas, constipation, diarrhea, and a number of skin conditions.
Draper also pointed out that the clinic supplies a range of supplements to complement the program.
“For me personally as a colon hydrotherapist, I always recommend a good fibre (supplement), because we need to poop. We got to bulk that up, bring that out, and we should be pooping two to three times a day,” she said.
To bulk up the stool, she recommends a high dietary fibre intake as well as adding supplements as needed to stay regular.
“A good probiotic is good for that as well because we need good bacteria. Your gut is essentially your life force and it’s your second brain, so the healthier you keep your gut, the healthier and happier you’ll be,” she added.
The clinic additionally offers services that include hormone and food sensitivity testing, weight loss planning, detox plans, nutritional counselling, cardiac assessments, homeopathy, and acupuncture, among others.
