EASTND is founded on naturopathic medicine and our naturopathic doctor's training. We recommend that each person interested in the clinic's services begin with a naturopathic consultation.
Naturopathic consultations are usually one hour in length, often covered by insurance, and individualized to your needs.Meet The Naturopathic Doctor

During a consultation with our Naturopathic Doctors, Meghan Oxford and Sydney Milson, your health history will be thoroughly reviewed, and a unique individualized treatment plan will be created to address and treat your ongoing symptoms.
Being trained as a generalist, she is happy to explore a variety of conditions like: anxiety, stress, digestion, hormone imbalances, fatigue, burnout, skin, depression, fibromyalgia, etc.
Our NDs treats primarily through the use of acupuncture, supplementation, and IV nutrient therapy (coming soon). Our NDs encourages creating a health team including a nutritionists, counsellors and other health care professionals. They are happy to help you build your healthcare team with local professionals who meet your individual needs.
This is a safe inclusive space, and all are welcome.
Naturopathic Medicine is founded on the principles of prevention and optimization. All patients are recommended quarterly checkups. Not only do they help you stop health problems before they arise, they leave you healthier than ever with more manageable symptoms.
A professional consultation is your first step to sustainable health that cannot be attained with medication alone. It involves a thorough health review, recommendations for further testing, and an individual treatment plan. Even if your current medication works for you, it's always possible to further optimize your health.
A Naturopathic Doctor is a healthcare practitioner. Naturopathic Doctors have 8 years of education and complete a year working internship before graduating.
Naturopathic Doctors differ from your GP as they focus on natural treatments instead of pharmaceutical drugs. They are trained in assessing blood-work and pharmacology to ensure safe administration of natural therapies without drug interactions or side-effects.
Accredited naturopathic doctors maintain membership with the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors and the association of their province.
