Nova Health Naturopathic Centre focuses on providing medical care including full physical examinations, blood work, intravenous therapy for the treatment of cancer and other chronic diseases, acupuncture, diabetes management, nutritional guidance for weight loss, and botanical and neutraceutical therapies.

Naturopathic Medicine can treat and/or assist in the treatment of cancer in several ways:
“Naturally You” Weight Loss
Your journey to a more natural and healthier lifestyle begins with an initial private one hour visit with Dr. Oxbro to determine your health history and past obstacles to weight loss. During this visit you will also receive a physical exam and blood work if required.
In your time with Dr. Oxbro you will be learning about foods in detail, how to combine foods, portion sizes, fats, proteins etc. You will also discuss disease pathologies (diabetes, heart disease, thyroid conditions, menopause etc), and how to prevent and treat these diseases. You may also discuss stress, anxiety, depression, emotional eating, and much more. Supplements may be suggested where necessary.
During an initial 1 and a half hour visit with Dr. Oxbro patients will learn how simple changes can improve the management of their diabetes. Fact is Diabetes is preventable and reversible. Presently only 47% of patients have a blood sugar level within the medically established target range, despite being on medication. The key concepts in the prevention and management of diabetes are quite simple – diet and exercise. Diabetics who change their lifestyle while remaining medically supervised have a 58% reduction in the rate of diabetes.
Intravenous Vitamin C for Cancer
Intravenous vitamin C is an effective and well-established cancer therapy that has demonstrated effectiveness in assisting to treat cancer for decades, despite being dismissed by some medical experts. As indicated by many studies, this therapy prolongs survival, improves quality of life, and reduces adverse effects of conventional cancer treatment (Integrative Cancer Therapies, 2004; 3:294-300).
Infrared Saunas for Health and Well-Being
The skin is a major organ of detoxification. We release toxins through our skin when we sweat, and ideally, we should sweat daily to maximize the skin's function as a detoxifying organ. Recently, the infrared sauna has become recognized as one of the most effective methods to channel your body’s natural detoxification mechanisms. It helps remove toxic chemicals from the body, particularly when they are stored in fat cells.
