In Canada, naturopathic health care is provincially regulated – as such, it may prove challenging for Dr. Chris, ND to help you one on one depending on where you reside, along with tele-medicine rules and regulations. Given these rules, Dr. Chris, ND may be unable to consult patients who reside in a province where Naturopathic Medicine is regulated (note: not all provinces are regulated which makes it complicated). Currently, the naturopathically regulated provinces are British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatechewan, Manitoba, and Ontario. If you reside in one of these provinces, please reach out to their provincial associations (google them) or the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors to find an ND near you. Dr. Chris, ND can offer to consult with your Naturopathic Doctor for a fee if needed.
