Allo, bonjour, I’m Dr Mélanie DesChâtelets and I’d like to welcome you to my online home. I’m a physician who helps individual address the underlying causes of their digestive, hormonal, cardiovascular concerns and discover vibrant energy. My focus is in natural therapeutics, lifestyle medicine and I have the authority to prescribe pharmaceuticals when there is a time and place for it. Chronic disease is rampant in our society. The quick fix solution is not effective for most of conditions. We must search for the upstream causes of downstream symptoms and disease. Naturopathic medicine tries to get to the underlying cause of the dysfunction as opposed to just suppressing symptoms. It’s the difference between turning off the stove and just putting a lid on a boiling pot.
What to expect? In many ways working with me is similar to working with your Family Doc. I may order blood work, can do physical examinations and prescribe pharmaceutical prescriptions. The are a couple major differences: Our first line treatments include evidence based natural therapeutics and lifestyle prescriptions. Time, Doctor of why? Knowing the Dx is important but not the most important thing. During your initial visit we spend 1 hour discussing you main concerns but we don’t limit our discussion to these. With this information I’m armed to understand relationships between your symptoms and their causes. If your sick and tired of being sick tired and you are looking for sustainable and effective solutions you have two options. Call to schedule a complimentary 15-minute meet the doctor visit. I’d be happy to answer any questions you may have regarding our work together. If you are ready to take charge of your health call to schedule your initial 1hr appointment.
Oh, and don’t forget most extended health insurance have some type of coverage for naturopathic medicine. That's it for now! Please peruse the website for health articles and sign up for your complimentary copy of the guide I authored the minimalist guide to supplements.
