This program is Naturopathic Medical philosophy at its best. Looking ahead throughout a year and taking steps to ensure that you are feeling great! Whether you currently aren’t feeling your best, looking for a little tune-up or are already healthy, the Four Seasons of Health Program is designed to empower you and your family with the knowledge and tools to achieve and maintain optimum health throughout the year.
There are unique health situations in each season. In Chinese medicine for example, we strengthen the intestines in the Fall (this enhances immunity), focus on heart health in the Summer. For the different seasons we must prepare our bodies and immune system for optimal function to deal with the seasonal changes and transition smoothly from one season to the next.
The Four Seasons of Health Program consists of 4 visits throughout the year, where Dr. Vivienne, ND will assess your current state of health, and work with you to address specific health concerns that arise. She will work with you to create a personalized naturopathic plan to improve your health and well-being and provide you with a health tool-kit to use in the upcoming season.
