My Natural Treatments
My holistic treatment plan for you may include Acupuncture, Herbal Medicine, Diet & Nutrition, Lab Testing, and Lifestyle Counselling.
What is Acupuncture?
Acupuncture is the insertion of very fine (not much thicker than a hair) needles into specific points in order to influence the flow of energy to the various organs in Chinese medicine. From a Western medicine standpoint, acupuncture appears to increase the production of endorphins (your body’s own morphine) and enkephalins (similar effects to endorphins). Don’t like needles? No problem! There are many other natural treatment options that work! Read More About Acupuncture
What is Herbal or Botanical Medicine?
Herbal medicine is the use of plants or plant extracts to help the body heal, provide nourishment and relieve symptoms while addressing the root cause of your health problems. Read More About Herbal Medicine
How does changing my diet help?
The foods you eat cause changes in your body’s internal chemistry, altering levels of blood sugar, electrolytes, cholesterol, triglycerides, and more. Foods can provoke either a profound positive effect or a negative effect, depending on your choices. Does your diet have to be perfect? No way! No one’s is, but most people can make some adjustments that will change their overall health. Read More About Diet and Nutrition
What tests can you do that my doctor can’t?
Several. There is a wide range of specialized tests that are not covered by OHIP and therefore not ordered by medical doctors. Tests for yeast, vitamins and minerals, food sensitivities, parasites, hormones, fertility, neurotransmitters, and much more. Read More About Lab Tests
How many treatments will I need?
That varies from person to person and depends on your specific condition and many other variables. Typically, the first two visits with Dr. Frank are the most important and rich with information. Non-acupuncture visits may be 3-6 weeks between the first and second visits, then 2-6 months apart. If you are including acupuncture in your treatment, sessions are usually once per week for 4-6 weeks, after that, once per month.
