Learn How Naturopathic Medicine Helps with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia

May 14, 2014

TORONTO, May 13, 2014 – In conjunction with Naturopathic Medicine Week, which runs from May 12-18, the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic (RSNC) at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) is presenting a special information session on Naturopathic Approaches to Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia.

The session will take place on Wednesday, May 14 at 6:30 p.m. at CCNM and will be presented by Louise McCrindle, naturopathic doctor and supervisor of the chronic fatigue and fibromyalgia specialty shift at the RSNC. She also co-authored The Complete Fibromyalgia Health, Diet Guide and Cookbook with Alison Bested, MD, FRCPC.

According to the Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), there are more than 215,000 people who have one or both of these conditions in the Greater Toronto Area. There are very few physicians practicing that specialize in these conditions - leaving many people feeling unsupported and isolated.

“I want patients to know they are not alone and that there is hope for the future,” says McCrindle. “There is so much more information available than there was 20 years ago. Slowly we are inching forward with new discoveries being made every year about these conditions and how they affect your body. This session will introduce participants to our model of care and give a snap shot of some of the approaches used and support available at the RSNC.”

The Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) is Canada's premier institute for education and research in naturopathic medicine. CCNM offers a rigorous four-year, full-time naturopathic medicine program. The College educates, develops and trains naturopathic doctors through excellence in health education, clinical services and research that integrate mind, body and spirit.

Naturopathic doctors (NDs) are primary health-care practitioners. Interns at CCNM’s Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic improve their patients’ health by identifying and treating the underlying causes of illness, employing therapies such as lifestyle counselling, nutrition, botanical medicine, acupuncture/Asian medicine, manipulation, homeopathic medicine, and hydrotherapy/massage.
