Muscle aches and joint discomfort can afflict individuals across all age groups. These pains may arise due to various reasons, and the intensity can fluctuate significantly. While the immediate response might be to reach for over-the-counter remedies like aspirin or ibuprofen, or even stronger prescription painkillers, these options don’t target the root cause of the issue or the source of the discomfort. Moreover, prolonged use of aspirin or ibuprofen is not conducive to long-term health, and prescription painkillers can lead to dependency concerns.

When confronted with muscle aches and joint discomfort, considering an alternative approach by consulting with our naturopathic physician, Dr. Zadie Lanouette, could be beneficial. Dr. Zadie’s methodology involves delving into the origins of muscle aches and joint pain rather than merely alleviating symptoms. Collaboratively, you and Dr. Zadie will work to uncover the underlying cause rather than simply masking the pain.

Dr. Lanouette’s practice centers around holistic healing and comprehensive wellness. Commencing with a thorough health assessment, Dr. Lanouette employs a range of holistic treatment modalities to manage discomfort, which may include:

  • Botanical medicine
  • Homeopathic medicine
  • Lifestyle adjustments
  • Vitalist therapies such as hydrotherapy
  • Targeted nutrient supplementation
