Clinic Site Moving

by Tamara | on Dec 10, 2012 | No Comments

It is with our deepest pleasure to inform you that Work Well Health Canada will be moving  our clinic sites, from Toronto to Thornhill! Our grand opening for our new clinic site will be in the New Year after all of our renovations are completed.

Our downtown clinic was quite popular, but with some research, our team quickly realized that most of our clientele would benefit if we moved to a residential community with a relaxed and calm environment.

We look forward to seeing you at our new Thornhill clinic!

 

We’re Putting Away Our Stethoscopes!

by Jaty Tam ND | on May 16, 2012 | No Comments

Naturopathic Doctors across Canada will be hanging up their stethoscopes for Naturopathic Medicine Week 2012, which will take place May 7-13. It doesn’t mean they will stop seeing patients, but in addition, they will be taking time our of their schedules to conduct events to teach members of their communities about natural medicine, health promotion and disease prevention.

Why do we do this?  One of the main tenets of Naturopathic Medicine is “docere” which is a latin word that means both doctor and teacher.  It is a tenet that reminds us that the original aim of the doctor was not just to cure ailments, but to teach, to educate people about their health and how to maintain balance and wellness. Naturopathic Doctors see their role not only as a healer, but also to help their patients understand how their bodies work, what may be out of function in the body to cause the presenting symptoms, and how various types of treatments can help to correct the symptom. This style of practice takes the physician away from the “doctor knows best” model, and instead upholds the ideal that the “body knows best” and that the patient’s actions will bring on deep and true healing.

Daffodil Days

by Jaty Tam ND | on May 16, 2012 | No Comments

April is Daffodil Month – a cancer awareness and fundraising month run by the Canadian Cancer Society here in Canada and the American Cancer Society in the US.  You may have seen volunteers selling fresh-cut daffodils in the TTC and many of your fellow Canadians sporting a plastic daffodil pin on their lapels. Why is this such an important month?

Every 3 minutes,
cancer picks a fight with another Canadian.

I’ve known a number of people both in my private and professional lives who have been affected with cancer, and I can see first-hand how this is a disease that affects not only the cancer patients but everyone around them as well.  What I love about the Daffodil campaign is that it’s not just about research or about finding a cure.  It’s also about support and that may be one of the most important aspects of helping someone deal with cancer. The Daffodil Month website has a great page with 30 ways that your donations can help – and include such things as: conferences for cancer patients and their caregivers, cancer information in over 100 languages, and providing rides to cancer treatments.  Read about all 30 ways here.

So for this month, the team at WWHC is sending out a special message of support, and will be wearing our daffodil pins, for our patients, families and friends who are currently fighting cancer, are survivors of cancer, or anyone who has had cancer touch their lives in some way.  Our hearts are with you.
