What We Treat

At Q Wellness we treat a variety of health conditions ranging from digestive concerns to fertility and peri-natal care to hormonal and endocrine balance. To learn more about how Q Wellness can help you with any of these or other concerns, read on, contact us or book your free 15 minute consultation.

The gastrointestinal tract comprises the most prominent part of the immune and nervous systems, acts as home to beneficial bacteria, a factory for hormones and enzymes all while breakdown and assimilating everything we eat or drink. Many people believe it is normal to have gas, bloating, indigestion, heart burn or constipation. It is not. It is obvious keeping this integral system functioning properly is critical to complete wellness.

Some of the common digestive conditions we treat include:

  • Celiac Disease
  • Constipation
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • Diarrhea
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (aka GERD, Acid Reflux, Heart Burn)
  • Gas & Bloating
  • Gastritis
  • H. pylori infection
  • Indigestion
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome
  • Liver disease (hepatitis, fatty liver)
  • Parasites
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Ulcers (Gastric, Duodenal)
Hormonal disorders are complex and often reflect the overall balance of the body rather than a specific hormone deficiency.  The goal is to support the body in its ability to balance and produce hormones naturally in all systems of the body, not just the symptomatic area. Achieving over-all hormonal balance can make treatment of one specific hormone often unnecessary.

Some of the common hormonal and endocrine conditions we treat include:

  • Adrenal Fatigue
  • Diabetes
  • Hyperthyroidism
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Hypoglycemia
  • Low Libido
  • Menopause
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
Whether planning for a healthy pregnancy or dealing with specific fertility concerns, Q Wellness can help. We actively aid in all aspects of reproductive health from conception through to post-partum care, including care for common concerns of pregnancy such as morning sickness, heart burn, high blood pressure, mood imbalances and gestational diabetes.

Some of the common fertility and perinatal issues we treat include:

  • Infertility – male & female
  • Pre-conception preparation
  • Pre and postnatal care
  • Pregnancy concerns
Throughout their reproductive life, women face health issues that are specific to their hormones and genetic composition.  Many of these concerns respond well to natural health approaches such as dietary changes, herbal support, homeopathy and acupuncture to restore balance to the natural rhythms of the body.

Some of the common women’s health conditions we treat include:

  • Bladder Infections (acute & chronic)
  • Breast Health
  • Cervical Dysplasia
  • Endometriosis
  • Fertility
  • Fibroids
  • Interstitial cystitis
  • Low Libido
  • Menopause
  • Menstrual Problems
  • Osteoporosis
  • Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
  • Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS)
  • Yeast Infections/Vaginitis
  • Urinary Incontinence
Men can experience a unique set of health concerns due to their basic physiology, both in later life and in earlier years.  Often reluctant to visit the doctor, men are also more likely to suffer the effects of ill health.  However, embracing preventative health care can help men improve their quality of life.

Some of the common men’s health conditions we treat include:

  • Cardiometabolic conditions
  • Erectile Dysfunction
  • Exercise performance and nutritional guidance
  • Fertility
  • Libido

Our muscles and joints keep us moving and thriving, but everyday stressors such as poor posture, long hours driving or sitting at a computer can contribute to discomfort.  Overuse, sports and traumatic injuries can also contribute to pain, requiring additional support through the healing process or continued support when chronic.  Natural therapies and therapeutic exercise can aid this process.

Some of the common musculoskeletal and pain conditions we treat include:

  • Arthritis and Joint Pain
  • Back Pain
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Gout
  • Headache/Migraine
  • Osteoporosis
  • Polymyalgia
  • Musculoskeletal evaluation
  • Sciatica
  • Sports/Activity Injuries/Traumatic Injuries
  • Therapeutic exercise programs
Cardiometabolic health refers to cardiovascular and metabolic health.  The term encompasses both areas of health, as the two are inherently linked. Family history, lifestyle and diet drastically influence cardiometabolic health. Naturopathic assessment can help identify your individual risk factors, helping you prevent disease.

Some of the common cardiometabolic conditions we treat include:

  • Angina
  • Blood sugar imbalances
  • Cardiovascular disease prevention
  • Diabetes
  • High Cholesterol/Triglycerides
  • Hypertension
  • Insulin insensitivity
  • Metabolic Syndrome
  • Overweight/obesity
Whether you are sick of being sick or suffer from an autoimmune condition, at Q Wellness our objective is to understand and rectify the underlying cause of your imbalance. Food sensitivities, heavy metal burden, changes to bacterial flora or gut health, nutrition, sleep and stress may all contribute to immune system function, and will be examined during your visit.

Some of the common immune system imbalances we treat include:

  • Autoimmune conditions (lupus, multiple sclerosis, scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, etc)
  • Acute and chronic cold/flu
  • Chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Sinusitis

The skin is the largest organ of the body and our first line of defense against the outside world.  However, problems that appear on the outside (skin, hair, nails) often reflect a deeper issue inside the body.  Underlying causes such as food sensitivities, gastrointestinal imbalances, hormonal problems, stress and poor nutrition are prevalent.  Assessing all these factors allows for optimal and lasting treatment results.

Some of the common skin, hair and nail conditions we treat include:

  • Acne
  • Brittle nails
  • Dry skin/hair
  • Eczema
  • Fungal infections
  • Hair Loss
  • Hives
  • Psoriasis
  • Rashes
  • Rosacea
  • Wrinkles

Mental health is probably one of the most overlooked, yet foundational parts of complete wellbeing.  It is frequently compromised by stress, leaving us feeling as if we can’t cope.  This may contribute to anxiety, depression or exacerbate more serious mental health conditions such as bipolar disorder.  Our naturopathic doctors and our clinical psychologist can assess the various factors contributing to your “dis-stress” and provide effective treatment or supportive therapy to a pharmaceutical regime.  At Q Wellness, we also work with the Amen Clinics providing referral and aiding in follow-up care.

Some of the common mental health conditions we treat include:

  • Anxiety
  • Behavioural disorders
  • Bipolar disorder
  • Depression
  • Insomnia
  • Stress
Our modern world is flooded with pollution, food additives, drugs, chemicals and heavy metals. We ingest them through the air we breathe, the food we eat and sometimes the water we drink.  At times our habits add further toxins to our systems, such as through smoking, caffeine intake and alcohol use.  The accumulation of such substances in the body contributes to a “body burden” of toxins and can lead to chronic disease.  By removing or eliminating toxins and replenishing the body with healthy nutrients, we can help protect against disease and restore the ability to maintain complete wellbeing. Detoxification programs also jump start weight loss, while supporting hormonal and metabolic health.
