What We Treat

We are a family health clinic that addresses a wide range of conditions affecting health and wellbeing.

When people have health challenges we clearly understand they are looking for solutions. The team at Green Apple Health Care focuses its treatment plans with outcome-based programs; we target outcomes instead of conditions. We practice results-focused medicine, complemented with an overall positive patient experience.

We work with our patients to create treatment programs that not only work but that work for them.

Our outcomes include reduced stress, increased energy, better focus, weight loss, fewer colds and flus, increased productivity at work, less downtime and more time doing the things you love, and a higher overall quality of life through better health.

We offer a full and complete range of natural therapies and programs for all your health needs.

Some of the many conditions and concerns we address are:

Diet and Nutritional Counselling

Is it true that “you are what you eat”? There may be different schools of thought on that, but there’s no question that diet and nutrition play a vital role in your health, vitality and general wellbeing. And it’s not just a matter of “eating right” – it’s much more a matter of eating what is right for your individual needs. The doctors at Green Apple Health Care will help you to make any needed changes in your diet with an effective, gentle, easy-to-do, step-by-step program. [BACK TO TOP]

Weight Loss

Weight loss is not simply calories in, calories burnt. There are many factors that can contribute to the inability to shed those extra pounds. At Green Apple Health Care, our doctors identify any obstacles in your weight loss journey, and create an individualized plan to help you lose weight safely and sustainably. We provide functional testing to assess body composition for a more accurate measure of your progress in targeting fat loss. The doctors at Green Apple Health Care will help you to shed those unwanted pounds gently, naturally, and safely. [BACK TO TOP]

Stress, Anxiety, Depression

With increasing awareness of unwanted emotional states such as anxiety and depression, it is becoming more and more imperative that this major issue be tackled. There are multiple causes for emotional concerns and stress can be one of them. There are so many reasons why stress occurs, including change (positive or negative), work, children, marriage, relationships. There are also environmental stressors such as heat, cold, a poor night’s sleep. These are all sources of stress that can drain one’s energy, impede the ability to handle the impact of stress, and may result in emotional upset. At Green Apple Health Care, we provide a unique and more complete approach that supports the body’s natural ability to deal with stress, anxiety and depression. Our results have been extremely positive with patient improvement in:

  • better sleep
  • better coping mechanisms
  • decreased anxiety
  • more energy
  • reduced depression

Life is meant to be enjoyed. The team at Green Apple Health Care has answers that will help you to overcome barriers to that goal. [BACK TO TOP]

Cancer

We are often asked if natural medicine can treat cancer.  Emphatically, yes!  There have been many cases where cancer has been successfully treated with naturopathic medicine. 

Can natural medicine alone treat all types of cancer?  The short answer is, no.  Depending upon the type, the severity, and the extent of the disease, oncological treatments may be necessary. 

For those patients who do need to undergo oncological treatment such as surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, complementing those conventional treatments with naturopathic medicine can provide enormous benefit during and after conventional medical treatment.

The doctors at Green Apple Health Care have many years of experience with many different types of cancer and we can provide therapies that augment conventional medical treatment.  We know what does and does not work, and if our doctors determine that natural therapies will be ineffective against your type or stage of cancer, we will tell you so. 

The treatments at Green Apple Health Care will not interfere with conventional medical treatment.  We are very experienced in working alongside other practitioners to get you through cancer treatments and to help you fully recover after them. 

Natural medicine strengthens the immune system during oncological treatment and rebuilds the body afterward.

Chemotherapy kills not only cancer cells, but also the vital nutrients and antibodies that your body simply cannot do without.  We use simple herbal and vitamin supplements to compensate for the significant reduction that is shown to occur during chemotherapy.  We have also used simple small dose vitamin injections to prevent the chemotherapy-induced nausea and nerve damage.  These vitamins are not antioxidants and do not interfere with chemotherapy.   The vitamins are administered by injection because oral doses are not high enough to recoup the nutrient loss suffered in chemotherapy and prevent damage.

It is sometimes suggested by oncologists that the patient not do any natural treatments during chemotherapy.  We find that the patients who complement conventional treatment with our natural therapies suffer fewer side effects of chemotherapy.  Natural medicine may not eliminate all of the side effects of chemotherapy, but it often lessens them without interfering with chemotherapy.

Once the conventional medical treatment is complete, the patient is often left with no means to prevent recurrence of the disease.  This is where our natural therapies excel for our patients.  High dose vitamin C with ozone treatments can provide a powerful means of prevention of the spread and return of cancer. 

With this treatment, the healthy cells are supersaturated with a very high dose of vitamin C.  This helps to prevent any aberrant cancer cells that might have escaped conventional medical treatment from attaching to healthy cells, preventing binding and causing another cancer elsewhere.  It also stimulates a significant rebuild of your entire body; all of your healthy cells are repaired, and the unhealthy cells and leftover remnants of oncological treatment removed for maximum full body effect.

We do not bombard a patient with the entire catalogue of everything that natural medicine has to offer.  Rather, we do very specific testing to determine exactly where to focus the treatments, then customize the treatment for the patient.  An example is testing for estrogen sensitive tumors.  We test internal estrogen metabolism and also look for possible external sources.  We keep the treatment plan specific to exactly what the patient needs, pinpointed on what the testing determines we should focus on.  

There is no natural therapy out there that is going to cure all cancers.  We work on rebuilding the person and eliminating problem areas.  

We don’t attack cancer with such harsh measures as chemotherapy and radiation.  We work on rebuilding the immune system and keeping your body strong during the oncological cancer treatments.  Then we really take over after the conventional cancer treatments are done.  At that point we concentrate on the prevention treatments that can significantly help prevent the return of cancer. [BACK TO TOP]

Low energy, exhaustion and fatigue

When you’re tired it can feel impossible to get through the day. If you need multiple cups of coffee, if you’re dragging yourself out of bed, if you fall asleep on the couch (or at your desk!) it’s time to find out why you’re so tired. There are many reasons for exhaustion and fatigue including impaired sleep, stress, hormone dysfunction, low vitamin levels and more. When we find the cause of your fatigue we can improve your energy levels long term leading to radiant health so that you can enjoy life. [BACK TO TOP]

Digestion is an essential aspect of the body’s ability to function which is often neglected until a severe problem occurs. The team at Green Apple Health Care will create a treatment formula including functional tools and strategies that will help alleviate digestive issues and provide improved energy, decreased pain and, sometimes more importantly, remove the embarrassing problems associated with digestive issues.

Allergies

Seasonal allergies got you down? Do red, itchy eyes, runny rose, sneezing and zapped energy made you dread spring?

Allergies are the result of an over-reactive immune system and the cause will vary from individual to individual. Our doctors at Green Apple Health Care provide effective treatment of seasonal and environmental allergies letting you get back to enjoying the outdoors, symptom-free. [BACK TO TOP]

Skin Conditions

Skin conditions such as rosacea, acne, psoriasis, and others are common and are difficult to live with. They present not only the obvious dilemmas but also can have long term negative effects on your overall health. Identifying and addressing the root cause is key. The Green Apple Health Care team of naturopathic doctors will identify the source of the condition, be it hormonal issues, food reactions, chemical reactions or any other reason, and will formulate a treatment plan to effectively address the origin of the condition.

Hormonal Function and Balance

What does it mean to balance hormones? It’s a complicated process that takes into account a patient’s chemistry and hormones. More and more people are demanding a natural approach to hormones and with extensive client care in this area, the team at Green Apple Health Care optimizes the results from its procedures that include improvements in:

  • fertility
  • menstrual irregularities
  • cramping
  • PMS Symptoms (bloating, water retention, irritability)
  • male and female low libido
  • menopausal symptoms such as night sweats, hot flashes, dryness.

More importantly, this is done gently and effectively. [BACK TO TOP]
