Traditional Asian Medicine
Traditional Asian Medicine is a holistic medical system that combines the use of acupuncture, acupressure, Asian botanicals and movement exercises to bring the body into balance. Because Traditional Asian Medicine is part of our curriculum, all BNMC student clinicians are able to consider its benefits when creating a personalized treatment plan for you.
All BNMC student clinicians are trained to provide acupuncture treatments. Acupuncture helps improve mind and body functioning by stimulating specific points on the body. Acupuncture treatments can be beneficial to patients with a wide variety of health concerns. Our clinicians and doctors can explain how acupuncture can help you meet your specific health goals.
Based on the use of plants as natural remedies for many day-to-day and chronic illnesses, botanical medicine continues to be the most common therapy used around the globe. Over 80% of the world’s population uses botanical medicine regularly. Fundamental to naturopathic medical care, botanical medicine is central to the curriculum at BINM and to the clinical practice at BNMC.
Naturopathic doctors believe that diet and digestion are integral to health, healing and disease prevention. The doctors and clinicians at BNMC address a number of medical conditions with personalized dietary changes and the use of nutritional supplements. Clinical nutrition is not only an effective treatment option, it also helps minimize the side effects that can occur with other types of treatments.
Homeopathy is based on three central doctrines:
1. The law of similars (like cures like)
2. The effect of medication can be heightened by its administration in minute doses
3. Nearly all diseases are the result of suppression.
Homeopathic remedies are made from plants, animals and minerals and are a natural alternative to many conventional prescription and over-the-counter medications.
Hydrotherapy is the use of water in the treatment of a variety of conditions such as arthritis, sports injuries, circulation issues, and inflammation. Generally, hydrotherapy treatments involve alternating between hot and cold water to stimulate circulation and promote healing. Hydrotherapy is effective in supporting the immune system, reducing pain and promoting the excretion of toxins.
Physical medicine encompasses all forms of manual therapy including massage, physical therapy and structural realignment. BNMC doctors and clinicians use physical medicine regularly to treat a variety of acute and chronic conditions.
We provide our patients with the tools and motivation necessary to accomplish their emotional and physical goals. Through wellness counselling, biofeedback and visualization techniques, we help our patients understand, explain, and change their behaviour and lifestyle habits.
Naturopathic Doctors are trained to perform full physical exams. At the Boucher Naturopathic Medicine Clinic (BNMC) a general screening physical exam is provided for each new patient.
