Nutrition is a primary foundation of good health. Counseling to fine tune your habits can have dramatic effects on your health. Nutritional supplements can also be used to therapeutically improve health and prevent disease.

 

Botanical medicine is an ancient form of medicine that founded modern pharmacology. It takes advantage of the centuries of evolution and adaptation of plants. Plants have both medicinal and nutritional value.  Both of these properties can be used to re-establish and maintain health. Botanical medicines come in various forms including tinctures (liquid alcohol extracts), teas, ointments, creams or pills/ capsules. 

 

Intravenous therapy delivers vitamins and minerals directly to the bloodstream, bypassing the gastrointestinal system, and allowing a more direct path for these nutrients to the organs that require them. This can be especially useful in individuals with poor gut absorption or long-standing disease. It can also be useful for those requiring a boost in immune function, overall energy, or as a complement to many treatment protocols.

 

Chelation is a specific form of detoxification that specifically targets heavy metals in the body. Specific chelation compounds are chosen based on a patient's test results revealing their individual body burden. Chelators bind specific metals in the body and remove them. Chelation is effective for the treatment of cardiovascular disease and heavy metal toxicity.

 

In our day to day lives, it is becoming increasingly difficult to avoid environmental toxins. They are in the food we eat, the self-care and cleaning products we use, the water we drink and the air we breathe.  Detoxification helps release some of these toxins to restore and maintain optimum health.

 

Prolotherapy or Proliferative Therapy is a natural injection therapy that promotes your body’s own healing processes. Prolotherapy is a non-surgical treatment that promotes lasting and often permanent healing of a joint by stimulating the body’s own repair and regeneration processes.

 

Injection therapy can be helpful for a number of conditions including many pain syndromes. Injection of various compounds including vitamins, such as vitamin B 12, minerals such as magnesium and other preparations can be used. This form of administration can deliver the required substances directly to the areas that require them. Dr. McKinnon has trained extensively in many different injection therapies including Prolotherapy, PRP, Neural Therapy, Perineural Therapy, Trigger Point Therapy, Biopuncture, and Mesotherapy.

 

Neural Therapy is a specific injection technique that uses a local anesthetic (procaine) to help re-balance the autonomic nervous system. In Neural Therapy, we look to find “interference fields” that could be adversely affecting a patient’s health. An interference field can be caused by many things such as a scar, an infection, a toxin exposure, or a physical or emotional trauma. Neural Therapy can be an effective standalone treatment or an adjunct for most any health concern. Click here to learn more about Neural Therapy. 

 

This ancient healing system has over 2,000 years of safe and effective use. It employs herbs, diet, and acupuncture to bring balance to the energy channels, or meridians, of the body, and restore health.  It has been proven as an effective treatment for a number of health conditions.

 

It is easy to forget how large a role our mental processes play in our health. We often take this facet of health for granted, until it is dramatically out of balance. Most of us understand how physical disease can weigh on our emotions or mental health; the opposite is also true, our mental processes are directly connected to our physical body through the hormonal (endocrine) system. At Naturally Inclined Health we employ a number of techniques that can be used to help re-establish and maintain a healthy mental balance.

Bowen therapy is a very gentle, non-invasive technique that works to re-establish alignment of the nervous, connective and soft tissues of the body. This technique involves a series of hands-on movements that restore body balance and promote relaxation. Bowen is indicated for both new and long-standing health concerns and is commonly used for pain.

 

Comprehensive testing of the blood, urine, stool or hair can offer key insights into your health equation. Various forms of laboratory tests are offered, depending on individual patient needs. Some testing is done in office, or a local lab, while other tests may need to be completed at home. In order to offer a full line of testing, Naturally Inclined Health employs labs both in Canada and the US.

 

In addition to many natural treatment options for many common female health complaints such as PMS, fertility concerns and menopause, Naturally Inclined Health also offers gynecological exams for their female patients. These exams include both a breast and pelvic exam.

 

This tradition dating back to the early 1700s is based on the principle of “like treating like” to help stimulate the body’s own healing processes. These remedies are very dilute preparations of various sources primarily plant, animal, and mineral.

 

Massage has the potential to calm the nervous system, increase circulation, reduce muscle tension, improve sleep, and relieve pain. Through assessment, a treatment plan is developed to address concerns that are musculoskeletally related to bringing balance to the system as a whole. Read more about massage therapy.

 

Just as other muscles of the body can become tightened, stressed and imbalanced from overwork, the muscles of the pelvic floor also become imbalanced from stress, illness or trauma. Holistic Pelvic CareTM addresses pelvic floor imbalance through gentle, intravaginal massage along with breath work, body awareness exercises, lifestyle counseling and visualization.
