A very unique aspect of Clear Medicine in Toronto, Canada is our programs. We offer both individual and group programs. The programs can be reimbursed under your Naturopathic benefits.

Our individualized naturopathic wellness treatment paradigm is based on Naturopathic Doctor Natasha Turner's 'The Hormone Diet' which was recently awarded the 69th on The CBC Top Selling Books of the Decade for Canada’s 150 and The New York Times Bestseller, The Supercharged Hormone Diet, #29 of 36 coveted spots on The US News Best Diets List and has been on the list since 2015.

We offer a structured weight loss program which is implemented and overseen by a licensed Naturopathic Doctor. We specialize in solving weight loss resistance, and have a track record of getting results for our patients when they have not been successful in the past and in safe weight loss, which means losing only fat, rather than metabolically active muscle and water. This is ensured by using medical grade Bio-impedance Testing, at the beginning and the end of the 5-week program. Dr. Turner ND has created an approach that offers a metabolically and hormonally balanced approach to ketosis. This individualized program is tailored to your specific dietary needs, dictated by your
current hormonal, immune and inflammatory state. A mandatory component of our weight loss system is extensive blood testing and urine testing for all metabolic, mineral, vitamin, glucose and insulin, thyroid, stress and other factors that impact your ability to burn fat, feel energized and gain strength.

In general, most of us recognize our stress levels exceed what is widely considered to be healthy. And yet, although we understand the importance of healthy behaviors like managing stress levels, eating right, getting enough sleep and exercise, challenges practicing these healthy behaviors are far too common.
More often than not we are overwhelmed, too busy or simply lack of motivation, energy and time as the chief reasons for not being more physically active. This leaves us searching for a quick fix, which is why energy drinks are so most popular. Caffeine is the major ingredient in most energy drinks—a 24-oz energy drink may contain as much as 500 mg of caffeine (similar to that in four or five cups of coffee), it can leave you feeling jittery only later to be followed by a crash. There are other beneficial ways to naturally boost your energy – fast!

Step 1 – Identify the Possible Underlying Cause(s) Of Fatigue
Step 2 – Complete Your Energy Assessment (including extensive blood and urine testing, physical testing, adrenal stress test and body composition testing)
Step 3 – Your Energy Prescription (including personalized supplement plan, personalized hormone diet nutrition plan and personalized workouts for energy and strength)

Hormonal changes in midlife can lead to the many symptoms of perimenopause and menopause. These changes are different for everyone and can lead to changes in energy, mood, metabolism, libido, etc. Having adequate levels of hormones, not only minimizes such symptoms, it also helps us to age well and prevent many health issues including cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis, gynecological problems, Alzheimer’s disease dementia, memory loss, and even some cancers.

Because these changes are unique for everyone, we focus on developing personalized recommendations and treatment plans to support the reduction of these symptoms and improve your overall health. One of the many tools used at Clear Medicine is bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). These hormones are structurally identical to the natural hormones produced in the body, yielding effective results with fewer side effects than synthetic options. Specific doses and methods of administration are customized based on unique need and will be regularly monitored and adjusted as necessary to ensure optimal dosing. Coupled with our nutrition program based on Dr. Natasha Turner’s New York Times bestseller The Hormone Diet, bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) can help balance hormones gently and naturally to help you feel your best. At Clear Medicine we will work with you to design a comprehensive personal treatment protocol that will help you get the most out of your BHRT regimen.

Osteopathy is a manual form of therapy which emphasizes the interrelationship between the structure and function of the human body. It follows a belief in the body's ability to self-heal and self-regulate. The philosophy of osteopathy is based on four basic principles. 1) Each structure in the body supports the body's function. 2) The natural flow of the body's fluids- lymphatic, vascular and neurological must be preserved and maintained. 3) The human body is a sum of it's parts. 4) It's physical, emotional, social, spiritual and cognitive systems don't work independently- they work in harmony. 4) When the body has no restrictions, it has the inherit ability to heal itself.
Using various manual assessments and treatment techniques and modalities, osteopathic practitioners work to identify and ease restrictions, constrictions and pain; reduce swelling; improve tissue mobility; and promote proper function and healing in people of all ages.

Osteopathy and training:
Before starting to train, it is strongly recommended to consult our osteopath. He will assess your ability to move including quality and range of motion to detect which structures are not working properly and provide assistance and therapy to fix any concerns. Two original points will be assessed that are not include in a standard fitness assessment: your diaphragm mobility and the suppleness of you nerves.

Diaphragm mobility because it is the main muscle for breathing and because is involved as a support in every movement from your body. It contracts about 20 milliseconds prior to any of your movement. Removing restriction from the ribs or vertebrae are crucial to allow the best diaphragm mobility possible. The diaphragm is also involved as a pump for the circulation of the venous blood and the lymphatic as well as the motor for the digestive organs motions. Improvement of this muscle can positively affect your blood flow and your digestive system.

Nerve suppleness is an important point to guaranty a better range of motion and helps prevent injury. In fact, your peripheral nerves start from your spine and reach the limit of your limbs as one little rope. Every time you extend your arm or bend your leg, the nerves coming from your neck or your lower back need to be elastic enough to follow. During their pathway, they can be compressed by ligaments, muscles or fascias. The work of the osteopath is to find and fix these restrictions and possibly give you specific stretching.

Any inquiries about osteopathy, please feel free to contact our kind staff and they can help answer your questions. Osteopathy is included with most extended health benefit insurance plans, please check your policy.

With now over 1500 successfully transformed Bootcampers in Toronto, we are proud to say that The Hormone Diet Bootcamp is one of the top naturopathic wellness programs in Canada. In FIVE short weeks, you will build the foundation for better hormonal health. This group program is based on Naturopathic Doctor Natasha Turner’s The Hormone Diet and The Supercharged Hormone Diet books.

Dr. Turner ND’s passion and fascination about the interconnectedness of hormones and the number of bodily functions they influence fostered the motivation behind her first book, The Hormone Diet. She found her own issues of hormonal imbalance and early experiences in clinical practice swiftly demonstrated the standard treatment for a seemingly uncomplicated hormonal issue such as low metabolism/thyroid hormone (a.k.a subclinical hypothyroidism, currently estimated to impact as many as 4 out of 13) or full-blown hypothyroidism—via simply replacing thyroid hormone—was by no means the complete solution. In fact, it was frighteningly inadequate in many cases.

Today, at Clear Medicine Naturopathic Clinic, we rarely rush to treat thyroid deficiency right away. Instead we start by working to detoxify our patient’s liver and digestive system that influences the production of active thyroid hormone; to balance stress hormones with good sleep and stress management; to level out blood sugar and insulin; to replenish the nutrients needed to make essential hormones; and to address hormone imbalance, which impact vitality and wellness.
