Naturopathic Medicine Calgary AB
Are you looking for a natural approach to pain relief, healing from common health conditions, or disease prevention? Naturopathic medicine offers enormous benefits to patients looking for health support and disease prevention. Our Calgary naturopathic doctors have extensive training to provide you with a blend of evidence-based, natural medicine focused on your health and well-being.
Our focus is on taking the time needed to assess your health, diagnose any conditions that may be troubling you, and develop an effective treatment plan. We’ll work together to create a personalized plan that incorporates your lifestyle and wellness goals, any health conditions, and preventative medicine. Your plan may include diet, exercise, and mindfulness habits. We may also recommend other complementary treatments, including botanical medicine, nutraceuticals, injection therapies, and intravenous nutrient therapy.
Our approach is collaborative, and you’ll be informed and involved in each decision about your care. We’ll work with you to help you heal and feel better as quickly as possible. Some patients choose to use our naturopathic doctors as their primary care providers to maintain their health and prevent disease over the long term.
How Does Naturopathic Medicine Work?
Naturopathic medicine is a holistic, or whole health, view of your health and wellness. We work with you to identify and address the underlying causes of your symptoms to help you heal and feel better. Naturopathic medicine uses natural remedies that support your body in healing itself.
We can help restore your body to optimal functioning through customized care plans that address nutrition, exercise and movement, and mindfulness. We can also support you through chronic conditions, stress management, and work-life balance.
Our naturopathic doctors will work with you to get to the root cause of your symptoms, looking beyond the surface for the reasons behind them. We offer integrative treatments to work with conventional medicine and other alternative health practitioners to provide the best possible personalized care to restore your health and vitality.
Benefits of Working With A Naturopathic Doctor
Each naturopathic doctor at Action Health has a different practice focus, and we’re able to refer to other care providers in the clinic as needed. Many of our patients come in with blood work results and paperwork they’ve received but don’t quite understand. Our naturopaths can sit down with you and explain the details of the information other medical professionals have given you.
Naturopathic doctors blend natural and conventional care to keep you as healthy as possible through a wide variety of treatment options and therapies. We can make connections between what seem to be unrelated symptoms to get to the underlying cause of your concern. Naturopaths can do full physical exams and can work as primary care providers.

What To Expect
Your first appointment with one of our naturopathic doctors will typically be 60 to 90 minutes long. We’ll take you through a detailed intake process and review your physical, mental, and emotional health as well as your family history. We’ll do a physical examination and chat with you about your lifestyle habits, stress levels, and other factors that may be affecting how you feel. We’ll discuss digestive or hormonal issues that may be bothering you and order any necessary lab tests as part of our assessment.
Do I Need A Referral?
There's no referral necessary, and you can make an appointment with one of our naturopaths by calling our front desk. Many of our patients are referred within the clinic after working with other care providers, but we accept outside referrals and welcome new patients ready to take first steps towards feeling their best.
When Should I Seek Help?
It’s a good idea to seek help anytime you’re feeling unwell, fatigued, or have lingering symptoms. If you’re suffering from chronic pain or recurring injuries, we can work to relieve symptoms and get you feeling better. Naturopathic medicine can complement the conventional care you’re receiving to protect and maintain your overall health and well-being.
