Naturopathic medicine is a distinct primary health care system that blends modern scientific knowledge with traditional and natural forms of medicine. It is based on the healing power of nature and it supports and stimulates the body’s ability to heal itself. Naturopathic doctors focus on optimizing health and wellness by combining the art and science of diagnosis, treatment and prevention through individualized patient care and treating the whole person.
Naturopathic medicine uses natural therapies to help with healing the individual. These therapies include botanical medicine, diet and clinical nutrition, hydrotherapy, homeopathy, naturopathic vitamin injections and IV therapy, Traditional Chinese Medicine/acupuncture, lifestyle counseling, and spiritual and energetic medicine.

At Seton Integrative Health Clinic, our Naturopathic Doctors look deeper at the root cause of all your symptoms. They can order blood tests and do so on a regular basis. They collaborate with other health care providers to keep the communication lines open for the optimal treatment of a patient. Our Naturopathic Doctors also question symptoms and investigate further with functional medicine testing such as functional stool testing, salivary hormone imbalance testing, food sensitivity testing, heavy metal and chemical toxicity testing, mold, yeast and parasite testing, testing for Lyme’s disease, small intestinal bacterial overgrowth testing (SIBO), and genetic testing. They search for the deeper underlying reason for chronic health ailments that patients may be presenting with.
Today, now more than ever, people are seeking and benefitting from naturopathic medicine. With more research emerging that supports the therapies used by Naturopathic Doctors, and the public demand for greater choice and increased access to more natural approaches to health care, Naturopathic medicine is meeting the health needs of an ever increasing number of Canadians.

At Seton Integrative Health Clinic, we take a holistic approach to aging. We assess any hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, cardiovascular and metabolic dysfunctions that may be negatively affecting and speeding up the aging process. We identify the lifestyle factors that may be contributing to the aging process. We focus on improving the inside aging process which will then reflect on the outside.
What is BIE?
Bioenergetic Intolerance Elimination is a simple, natural approach that enables one’s body to recognize sensitivities or intolerances, and energy blockages in the body
How does BIE work?
A lightweight state-of-the-art device is used to transmit a low electronic frequency directly onto various acupuncture points (without the use of needles) on the body to stimulate and clear any blockages in energy known as stressors. During this procedure, the client is exposed to the frequencies of the substances they are intolerant or sensitive to (not the actual substances themselves). While the blockages are clearing, the body’s cells can adapt to recognize the stressing frequency. When this non-invasive and painless procedure is complete, the body will hopefully no longer see the sensitivity or intolerance as a threat when exposed to it, therefore no longer producing any adverse reactions.
Does BIE have any side effects?
It is rare, though some patients may experience a healing crisis or a short period of time where symptoms get worse before improving. The body is readjusting and detoxifying which can cause this aggravation. To a lesser degree, some patients may feel a little fatigue, extra thirst or increased urination for a short time after their treatment.
How many BIE treatments are required?
One BIE treatment can address several energy blockages at the same time. Most blockages are treated just one time for complete results. The number of visits depends on the category of blockages we are treating (e.g.. emotions, hormones, food, etc)
Will I notice results right away? How long does the effect last?
Most patients find immediate results after the first visit, while others require several visits to detect and remove all assessed blockages. In extreme cases, those with multiple energy blockages have reported a 4 to 6 week period lapsed after their session before feeling complete relief of their symptoms. However, if something dramatic has changed – illness, high stress, surgery; events that stress the body’s functions and organs; some reactions may return. These circumstances are also addressed during your session to mitigate and to treat if necessary.
It requires only one to four sessions to clear all stressors and blockages causing sensitivity or intolerance. Approximately, 75-80% of blockages can be cleared in the first session. However, depending on the degree of intolerance, and stress level of the patient, the other 20-25% may require a second, third, or even a fourth session.
Does BIE address conditions other then intolerances and sensitivities?
Because BIE reprograms a cell’s response to its environment, BIE’s application is far-reaching. Hormonal imbalances such as hot flashes, PMS; sugar metabolism – hypoglycemia/diabetes; fat metabolism, thyroid imbalances are just a few issues that can be approached with BIE. In addition, our clinic will issue lab requisitions for various testing including standard blood cell counts, triglycerides, fasting blood sugar, thyroid hormones, hormonal saliva panels, etc. when necessary to accurately assess the patient’s health.
