Toronto’s Best Naturopathic and Nutrition Experts
The Totum team has several of the best nutritionists and naturopathic doctors in the downtown Toronto. We work together with our rehab and fitness providers to provide our clients and athletes the most effective and up-to-date nutrition information possible. We pride ourselves on providing reputable, fact-based information to counteract the constantly changing messages about nutrition found in our modern media.
Proper nutrition plays a large role in everyone’s overall health. The idea that “you are what you eat” is a great way to think about how important your daily nutrition can be. The difficult part with nutrition is figuring out how to fit healthy eating into a busy schedule in a practical way. The Totum team includes experts in these areas and many more.
Naturopathy at Totum
Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary healthcare system that combines modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of illness, imbalance or disease.
Appointments with our naturopathic doctor range from 30 to 90 minutes; this time is needed to fully investigate health concerns through verbal discussion, physical examination and specific testing. Naturopathic treatment is tailored to each individual patient’s needs, goals and desires, and can include diet and lifestyle counseling, botanical medicine, clinical nutrition such as vitamins and supplements, acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine, and Intravenous Vitamin Therapy.
Like all of our services, we focus on where the science leads us and steer clear of the rest.
Nutrition is the foundation of your health
You really are what you eat! In order to fully realize your goals, whether they are related to health, performance, strength, weight loss or weight gain, or lifestyle-focused, nutrition needs to be a component of this plan—not an afterthought.
In the first appointment, we’ll assess your goals, objectives and reasons for coming in. During a nutrition consultation, you can expect feedback on your eating habits as we develop a plan for how to improve your eating that is realistic to you and your lifestyle, and in line with your goals. Vitamins and supplements may also be recommended when necessary. These nutrition consultations are 30 minutes to 1 hour in length.
Our nutritionist specializes in endurance sports and athletics, and can help you with your performance-based goals through the development of training and racing nutrition plans. She also works with those looking to make more lifestyle-based changes, whether the goal is weight loss, weight gain, or the management of chronic illness.
