A new workshop:

A Naturopathic Approach to Epilepsy - HeadWay teams up with Acacia Health

 

We all know that nutrition is critical for all of us, but what exactly is nutrition? Do you think of meat, potatoes, rice and vegetables? Do you think of vitamins and minerals? What else does the science of nutrition involve? Find out from those who specialize in nutrients and nourishment as treatments – naturopathic doctors!

Dr Pam Hutchison & Dr Stephanie Bayliss, from Acacia Integrated Health Clinic specialize in neurological conditions. Of course, we are each unique, so our nutritional needs may differ, but there are general principles that can be addressed through group programs. We are excited to announce A Naturopathic Approach to Epilepsy with Dr. Stephanie Bayliss and Dr. Pam Hutchison. This small group workshop is designed for optimal learning. You will learn about the most common naturopathic treatment plans for people with epilepsy and you will have an opportunity to ask questions and gain clarity.
