Located in the heart of Calgary’s northeast quadrant, Nexus natural health clinic is committed to helping its patients improve their health at a reasonable price. Both English and Punjabi are supported for customer service. Dr Dhaliwal is a local of Calgary; she earned her BSc in biological sciences there. Dr Dhaliwal’s interest in medicine began with her voluntary work at a local hospital and a women’s natural health clinic. As Dr Dhaliwal learned more about the healthcare system and dealt with her family’s history of chronic health issues, she grew more frustrated by the lack of focus on addressing these underlying causes of illness. The recurrence of symptoms was partly due to a lack of emphasis on making lifestyle changes and setting long-term preventative objectives.
Dr Dhaliwal found naturopathic medicine to be the most satisfying of the different medical traditions he researched, and he went on to practise it. After four years of study at the Boucher Institute of Naturopathic Medicine (now the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine), Canada’s only certified naturopathic medical school, she graduated with the title of Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine. Dr Dhaliwal also worked at Positive Living BC in Vancouver as part of her clinical training, where she developed naturopathic treatment protocols for people living with HIV/AIDS. She is an active member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Physicians, the Alberta Association of Naturopathic Physicians, and the College of Naturopathic Doctors of Alberta.
You can trust that Dr Dhaliwal will listen to your concerns and provide the tools you need to make healthy choices at Nexus Naturopathic Medical Clinic. She advocates for patient education and multidisciplinary teams working together to benefit patients. She is particularly interested in hormonal health, women’s health, digestive issues, and skin disorders. Dr Dhaliwal appreciates being able to speak both English and Punjabi with her patients. Dr Dhaliwal’s passions outside of work include spending time with her family and trying out new dishes in the kitchen.
Naturopathic Medicine Principles
First, Harm None
When treating patients, naturopathic physicians always aim to inflict the least possible harm.
Natural Medicine’s Restorative Potential (Vis medicatrix naturae)
Naturopaths have faith in the body’s innate recuperative powers.
Naturopathic physicians, rather than just masking symptoms, seek for and eliminate their origins.
Doc As Educator (Docere)
A naturopathic doctor’s interaction with their patient is therapeutic because the doctor encourages and equips the patient to take an active role in managing their health.
Practitioners of naturopathic medicine have undergone extensive training in basic care and are qualified to assess, prevent, and treat various health issues. The philosophical stance and treatment methods used are the primary distinctions between conventional and naturopathic medicine. As opposed to traditional medicine, which focuses on relieving symptoms, naturopathic care addresses the causes of illness and promotes wellness.
The physical, mental, emotional, environmental, lifestyle, hereditary, and social components of a person are all considered by naturopathic physicians. Naturopathic physicians go to school longer than typical medical professionals to learn about alternative therapies do. Some examples include osteopathic manipulation of bones and muscles, massage treatment, hydrotherapy, homoeopathy, and counselling on how to live a healthier lifestyle. The best outcomes for patients may be achieved via the coordinated efforts of several healthcare professionals using both traditional and alternative methods.
