What is Naturopathic Medicine?
Naturopathic medicine is the art and science of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of disease using
natural therapies. It addresses the underlying causes of disease, rather than simply suppressing symptoms.
Focusing on prevention and using non-toxic substances along with non-invasive treatments, naturopathic doctors
support and stimulate the body's inherent ability to heal itself.
The patient is seen as a whole person - not
as a condition - and the physical, mental and emotional dimensions are taken into account in developing a
personal treatment plan.
Patient education combined with individualized care result in comprehensive approach
to health and well-being.
Dr. Lisa McNiven, RN, B.Sc., N.D.
I began my secondary education with a Science Degree from the agricultural department of Dalhousie University then continued on to become a Registered Nurse from the Aberdeen School of Nursing. I practised as a registered nurse for 7 years as well as part time while I studied to become an ND in Toronto, Ont. My love of naturopathic medicine has enabled me to help my patients for the last 15 years.
I practised in Nova Scotia for 13 years then relocated to Alberta for the last two years however after much personal and family contemplation I decided to return to the east coast. I am very excited to be back.
I have an eclectic practise treating the whole family. From children's health to women's and men's health especially hormonal health. Digestive problems, skin issues, emotional health are just a few of the health concerns I treat. I also treat with homeopathy and acupuncture as well as electrodermal testing.
I am pleased to join the New Glasgow Chiropractic Clinic and offer direct billing to my patients. Call for details at 902-752-5390.
