Your doctor tells you “you’re normal, you’re fine,” or “this medication will solve the problem.” But, there’s a problem with the problem, because you don’t feel “fine” and part of you knows that there must be another way to look at “the problem”. Your health deserves a 2nd opinion. Join Dr. Dave & Dr. Kara, 2 ND’s with the smarts and hearts to help you rethink medicine and take informed action on your health.
Some people may say that Naturopathic Medicine is “the Medicine of the Future”.
But by the same token, Naturopathy is a branch of Medicine that is rooted in observing, cooperating, and adapting to natural phenomena, and Nature’s wisdom is timeless.
As such, it is a medicine of the past (and the present), and it is important to remember the roots of Naturopathic Medicine.
It is fitting, then, that we were able to have a conversation with Dr. Richard Vuksinic ND, a true student of the timeless phenomena of Nature and one of those “roots-y” Naturopathic Doctors who reminds the rest of us Naturopaths why we do what we do, and why it makes so much sense. Except for his strange infatuation with Doug Gilmour and the Toronto Maple Leafs, it is fairly safe to say that everything Naturopathic Medicine courses through his veins and forms every fibre of his being.
Join us as our friend and colleague, Dr. Richard Vuksinic ND, touches on hormesis, the microbiome, mitochondria, and deep Nature connection.
Physician, Heal Thyself.
A serious diagnosis can be a shocking event for any of us. How we respond may involve some common themes or stages, but the process we each go through is very personal. We often wonder why it has happened, what could we have done to prevent it?
And when it so happens that the patient is a Naturopathic Doctor, arguably the best equipped at preventative medicine, what are the doctor’s orders?
Join us for a conversation with Dr. Baljit Khamba ND as she shares some of the learnings of her life journey after “ringing the bell”.
Sleeping with the Enemy
Nobody wants any herpes virus, but you probably have one.
The funny thing is, they call you out on your health, and if a lowly virus wants out, your health is on shaky ground. (seriously, listen in for a live TNP recording of an actual earthquake in action)
Join us for a seismic episode with Dr. Kasey Holland as she re-activates our interest in how the KISSING DISEASE (mono) may rear up later in life and leave you wondering why you’re TIRED AF.
Birth of a Mother
“Being a mum is not a diagnosis.”
The birth of a child coincides with the birth of the mother.
Your brain changes, your hormones change, you’re more susceptible to some autoimmune changes, the baby blues, fatigue, etc. -- it’s a perfect storm of changes, and in all of the newness of birth, it’s difficult to tell what’s normal and what’s not.
Join us as Dr. Danielle Watson ND drops some proper mama science and cross-cultural wisdom and helps us see that there’s so much that Naturopathic Medicine can offer before, during, and after the birth of a mother.
"I'm not getting better!"
“It’s Just Stress”
When you’re told “it’s just stress” it’s about as helpful as someone telling you to “calm down”.
Our simplistic and binary “fight or flight” and “rest and digest” understanding of the nervous system is outdated.
After Dr. Dave finally got her name right, our angelic guest and expert vagal knob-twiddler Dr. Kristina Kastalanac ND helped us understand how polyvagal theory and her experience with somatic experiencing can help your nervous system unwind in ways that go beyond wine, bubble baths, and essential oils.
