Alimenta Health is a modern, integrative health practice founded in naturopathic philosophy and embodying team-driven health care for whole body wellness. Regardless of who you are working with, your clinicians will interact and communicate directly and strategically about your health. This model provides not only the convenience of centrally located practitioners, but more importantly, ensures that you receive true integrative care, drawing from the best of traditional and complimentary medical philosophies.
Our Practice Philosophy
Integrative medicine is an innovative approach to providing comprehensive, client-centred care. Its implementation involves working to deliver specialized and complementary therapies. Integrative medicine requires the collaborative contribution of both traditional and complementary practitioners to ensure that medical services are delivered from a common philosophy and respect for heath promotion.
Balancing effective patient care with many paradigms of treatment is a challenging endeavor, but one that has become increasingly important to educated health care consumers. The integrative approach at Alimenta Health is based on a truly collaborative model of client care. It is founded on the premise of open and constructive communication between practitioners regarding all aspects of a client’s health. It involves providing clients with access to varied medical philosophies and practitioners who share a common vision for integration based on three prerequisites. These include: a common theory and understanding of illness and the functional understanding of the factors that may play a role in its occurrence, a framework within which to assess and apply interventions together with a willingness of all practitioners to explore different healing paradigms.
Alimenta Health endeavours to combine the science of sound medical knowledge with the intuition and creative thinking that embodies the art of medicine. We work collaboratively with our clients to find solutions that address the cause of their concerns.
