Can I see my naturopath and my family medical doctor at the same time?
Yes, in fact it is encouraged! Meghan enjoys collaborating with other heath care providers and believes that this typically provides patients with the best possible care.
I take medication, is there any point in me seeing a naturopath?
Naturopathic doctors are trained to recognize interactions between supplements and medications and are able to pick the best treatments for your specific needs. Dr. Meg will be able to suggest treatment to help with side effects you are experiencing from your medication or to help support what the medication is already doing. If addressing the underlying cause of disease at the same time it is sometimes possible that not as much medication will be needed.
*Note: Only your medical doctor can adjust the dosage of your medication
