Are you looking for a board-certified naturopathic doctor in Toronto? McDowall Integrative Psychology & Healthcare is an integrative team dedicated to bridging the gap between psychological therapy and healthcare. We offer unique approaches to ADHD, over and above the standard treatments currently offer. We take you through the entire process from ADHD assessment to diagnosis and collaborative treatment.
Naturopathic medicine looks at ADHD from a physical perspective, evaluating the biology & chemistry of the individual person. A unique tool we use at McDowall is the Walsh Protocol, a world-renowned mental health protocol that evaluates nutrient deficiencies attributed to mental health symptoms. This comprehensive testing program gives us a baseline and key indicators that we can then improve in order to remove ticks, agitation/irritation, impulses and potential hyperactivity. Each individual is different therefore results may vary from person to person.

The Walsh Protocol For ADHD
The Walsh Protocol was discovered by a Dr. Walsh a PhD scientist dedicated to further understanding the role between nutrient deficiency and mental health. Over the past 30 years Dr. Walsh has refined his protocols and developed biochemical treatments for mental health conditions; ADHD (Attention deficit disorder), autism, clinical depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and Alzheimer’s disease.

Other Naturopathic Medicine Options In Toronto
If you are in Toronto and able to come in, we also offer a wide variety of therapies including intravenous treatment (IV Vitamin Therapy), acupuncture, and cupping. Naturopathic doctors are medically trained and naturally focused. That means they are able to diagnose and treat but usually use natural modalities in their protocols. They do have prescription rights but are limited in scope compared to a medical doctor. If you are currently taking medications, our naturopathic physicians can work with you to complement your current treatment or assist with symptom management.

Personalized Treatment Plan
Integrative psychology & healthcare means you work with both psychotherapists and naturopathic doctors. This unique approach makes sure we are combining both the mental and physical aspects of health. This offers a unique treatment plan that is customized to you and your individual needs. For instance: no two people with ADHD are the same. Some may be hyperactive, some might be hypoactive and those both require different treatments. Our approach recognizes these individual differences.
