Naturopathic Doctors medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The Naturopathic Doctors philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, and unfavorable lifestyle habits. Naturopathic Doctors Medicine emphasizes disease as a process rather than as an entity.
Treating both acute and chronic conditions, Naturopathic Doctors treatments are chosen based on the individual patient – their physiological, structural, psychological, social, spiritual, environment and lifestyle factors. In addition to diet and lifestyle changes, natural therapies including low level laser therapy (LLLT), botanical medicine, clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, Naturopathic Doctors manipulation and traditional Chinese medicine/acupuncture, may also be used during treatments.
In Canada, the Naturopathic Doctors medical profession’s infrastructure includes accredited educational institutions, professional licensing, national standards of practice, participation in many federal health committee initiatives, and a commitment to state-of-the-art scientific research. For more information on Naturopathic Doctors Medicine, visit the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors at www.cand.ca.
LLLT treatments compliment the treatments traditionally offered by ND’s as the therapy leverages the body’s natural healing processes and there are no harmful side effects. Unlike many traditional therapeutic and pharmaceutical options, low level laser therapy from LaserIntervention is non-toxic, non-invasive, and completely pain free. In over one million individual treatments no significant adverse effects have even been noted, making low level laser therapy one of the safest forms of healthcare available today.

Stress, Insomnia & Emotional conditions
Modern life is full of hassles, deadlines, frustrations, and demands. For many people, stress is so commonplace that it has become a way of life. The body doesn’t distinguish between physical and psychological threats. When you’re stressed over a busy schedule, an argument with a friend, a traffic jam, or a mountain of bills, your body reacts just as strongly as if you were facing a life-or-death situation. If you have a lot of responsibilities and worries, your emergency stress response may be “on” most of the time. The more your body’s stress system is activated, the easier it is to trip and the harder it is to shut off.
Long-term exposure to stress can lead to serious health problems. Chronic stress disrupts nearly every system in your body. It can raise blood pressure, suppress the immune system, increase the risk of heart attack and stroke, contribute to infertility, and speed up the aging process. Long-term stress can even rewire the brain, leaving you more vulnerable to anxiety and depression.
Some of the more common conditions we treat include:
- Behavioural Problems
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
At LaserIntervention we understand the underlying mechanisms of Autoimmune Disease. This is achieved through a variety of modalities including specialized testing, allowing us to better understand your case. Our goal is to aid in rebalancing the body rather than just suppress the symptoms as many pharmaceutical aim to do.
Some of the more common autoimmune conditions we treat include:
- Crohn’s Disease
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Ulcerative Colitis
Cosmetic Low Level Laser Facials
How it works:
Low level Laser regenerates and rejuvenates the facial muscles and skin naturally. The laser is applied to specific points and areas on the face stimulating an increase in blood and lymph circulation to the area. The face receives a flush of blood that nourishes, oxygenates, and moisturizes the skin from inside out. The increased lymph circulation helps remove wastes and toxins, resulting in diminished swelling and puffiness. By nourishing the skin, we are able to diminish the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sagging jowls and chin, breakouts and dull skin.
Laser therapy penetrates deep into the dermis to promote the growth of new skin cells and speeds up the migration of these cells to the surface of the skin. This process of cell migration normally takes 4 weeks however with laser therapy the new healthy skin cells replace older damaged cells much more rapidly. The result is the appearance of tighter, firmer skin. We have protocols for eyes, fine lines, crows feet, frown lines, breakouts/acne etc.
Detoxification & Weight loss
The goal of LaserIntervention’s Weight Management Program is to pair our Laser Therapy with Naturopathic Doctors Counseling as well as assisting our clients identify behaviours and environmental stimulus that have become associated with poor eating habits. We provide each client with information and advice tailored to your specific health needs and concerns.
As well, it is important to detoxify the body regularly of the chemicals that make their way into our bodies and bloodstream through pollution, food additives, drugs, pesticides as well as caffeine, nicotine and alcohol use. By detoxifying our bodies regularly we can rid our bodies of toxins and metals that can lead to chronic disease. By removing and eliminating toxins you are promoting the restoration of your body’s natural function and increasing your ability to maintain optimum health. Our Detoxification programs are a helpful addition to other programs such as Smoking Cessation, Urinary and Cardiovascular treatments. Our Practitioners can advise you on what detoxification program best suits your conditions.
