Hello and welcome to Insynco Naturopathic. I’m Dr. Leah Richardson, ND, Insynco’s founder and lead naturopath. I started Insynco Naturopathic because I believe we need a new kind of health care experience in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). A type of care that resolves chronic disease, provides alternatives to prescription medications, and helps people move away from surviving and really begin thriving. We call this kind of patient care “personalized holistic health care” and we believe it’s the intelligent approach to great health.

Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) is the insurance that people in Ontario carry and it does NOT cover naturopaths. However, if you carry other insurance, then you will most likely have coverage. Acupuncture and naturopathic clinics can be very beneficial for your health, however, the OHIP doesn't cover it at this time.
A naturopathic doctor is similar to any other doctor. They treat patients for ailments and illnesses. They can diagnose and treat acute issues as well as chronic diseases. However, they don't just treat the problem, they try to find the source of the problem to treat it in that regard. This means that they are going to say knee pain in a different manner than a traditional doctor that would simply try to fix the pain in the knee but not look into why they have that pain. Things such as posture, a foot problem, or something else could be the root cause of the knee pain. That is what a naturopathic doctor looks into. They typically approach the body in a very natural way and are non-invasive when they can.
A naturopathic doctor believes your body is equipped to heal itself. However, sometimes it needs a little help. With the mind, body, and soul working together, the healing process can be a very beautiful thing. They not only look at the alignment but everything that surrounds the alignment as well.
A Naturopathy diet is a diet that is customized for you. It is a holistic approach to healing and when you are doing this, you need to feed your body the proper nutrition. This has been used for centuries to help the body heal in the ways that it was meant to. Naturopathic practitioners do not rely on medicine or invasive treatments to help aid the body but are for an all-natural approach. This approach will take some getting used to for some but when you realize how much better you feel, it will become easier and more natural.
Most of the food is as close to its natural state as possible. By following the guide that is laid out to you by your practitioner you will have better digestion, circulation, and more energy.
Both want you to eat healthily, however, their approach to how you eat can vary quite a bit. It is often determined by your doctor or you as to why you are needing a nutritionist. Is it that you have a hard time losing weight? Maybe you have a hard time gaining weight. There are many reasons that people see a nutritionist. Perhaps you are diabetic and need assistance to get that under control through your diet. While the nutritionist can help you with all of these, they will not look at the underlying problem. That's where the naturopath comes in. They don't only look at the reason you are needing a diet plan. They are also looking at why you need a diet plan. Many times there are underlying reasons such as a bad food relationships that are causing overeating, for example. This needs to be addressed and managed properly for a better outcome.
Absolutely! In fact, this is an area that they are really helpful in. As they are trained in nutrition but also take the mental approach to it as well. Oftentimes if we have issues with food, they will show on our bodies. This doesn't always mean in the form of weight loss either. Some people have a hard time gaining weight or even eating. Your mind controls so much more than you can even imagine. Getting the help to reprogram your mind will help you in your weight loss journey. They will also be able to give you some exercise tips and other strategies as well as cheer you on. Weight loss is not fun, but if you do it right, you can keep it off with your new lifestyle. This is a new lifestyle. It allows you to live out your life and to keep your weight off in a fashion that you aren't even going to think about.
Anyone that is in tune with their health. If you believe in letting your body heal naturally and want to explore that sort of way of life, seeing a naturopath only makes sense. However, it is not for everyone as it is hard work at times. But, the hard work pays off. Think about that overweight and miserable person that is no longer miserable and overweight. There is no easy and quick fix, if there was, everyone would be doing it. This takes some willpower but you will have your therapist and nutritionist there to lean on as well as your Naturopath.
The naturopathic doctor is a doctor of naturopathic medicine that has obtained a degree that is a four-year graduate-level program from an accredited school. They study the same basic sciences that medical doctors have to study. However, they take it a step further and study psychology and nutrition as well. They will have continued education courses as well as have to pass a written exam in order to practice.
If this is your first time, you can expect a lengthy exam. The first exam usually takes longer as the doctor takes the time to get to know you and your history. You can go over with them anything you feel relevant in your past as well as family history. You will want to speak with them about things that are bothering you now from a mind, body, and soul perspective. Explain what you are expecting out of them and what your hopes are. They will most likely run lab work and request labs and other information from your previous doctor that they will go over at your first visit as well.
Once this has all been done, you will come back for a follow-up appointment, after the doctor has had time to go over everything. They will discuss different options and choices as well as the findings of their tests.
Homeopath medicine and naturopath medicine are quite different but certainly have some similarities as well. Homeopathic medicine uses natural substances to treat the patient for various symptoms. Sometimes these substances are very bitter so they will give them in the form of a sugar ball. This ensures that the patient will most likely comply with the treatment. However, naturopath patients can offer the same treatment as the homeopath, but in a different fashion. A homeopath patient will be given the same treatment for that particular ailment without looking into anything further. However, the naturopath will take into account several factors before treating the ailment. They will look at the past history of the patient, take into consideration the weight and possibly the gender, and look at what the patient has been eating as well. A naturopath has many factors that they take into consideration. But, the homeopath simply has a plan that covers everyone with the same ailment using the same treatment.
When treatments are followed, lifestyle changes are kept and counseling techniques are working it can be very effective. It all depends on the patient and their willingness to let the system work for them. This may not be the easiest method for some, but in the long run, it is the most effective. Think about never having to worry about your weight again because you have learned new ways to think about food.
Absolutely! Many times anxiety is stressed stored in the body. We might know what caused this or we might not. With the help of a naturopath, you can explore where this energy is stored and what might have caused it. Through therapy, eating and sleeping properly, and exercise you will begin to feel more relaxed and balanced. Through diet, you can replenish your body's needs. Anxiety is something that many of us have but oftentimes it is due to mental health and poor diet. By seeing a naturopath you can explore what solution will be best to help manage your anxiety.
What do you think about getting the toxins and poor diet choices out of your life is going to do to your skin? If you said to make it clear and healthy, then you are correct. Seeing a naturopath will certainly help with acne. Acne appears for many reasons, however, our diet is the main key factor. You need to eat clean to have clean skin. But, a fair warning that it might get worse before it gets better. As the toxins are leaving the body, your body will go through some adjustment periods. This is expected and your naturopath can explain this in further detail.
