I’m delighted to introduce myself. My name is Greg Sikorski and I am a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. Here you can find out a bit about me and my zeal for Integrative and Holistic Medicine.
What is Naturopathic Medicine?
- It is a distinct system of primary health care that integrates modern scientific knowledge with traditional healing wisdom. It utilizes natural forms of medicine to treat underlying causes of disease and to support the prevention of illness
- By using a wide variety of modalities, Naturopathic Medicine assesses a patient by looking at the person as a whole. Analysing more than just one system, we look not only at a person’s body, but mental, emotional and potentially spiritual aspects as well
- This look into the whole person helps us understand and get to the root of disease and illness. Then we address it using natural and alternatives to drug therapy. Maximizing the body’s inherent self-healing capacity
- We also understand that the patient is a vital aspect of a visit. That they are the experts in their own body and we are here to listen, learn and help give advice on how to better understand what the body may need. This allows us to give each patient a unique and individual treatment, as no two patients are the same
- We focus on imbalances and prevention, beyond symptomatic relief
