Have you ever calculated your
out of pocket health care expenses?

Each year, Canadians spend on average between $1000-$3000 on basic health care out of pocket for health insurance premiums, dental visits, and pharmaceutical drugs.  Add to that any private practitioner partially covered by insurance, or ones not covered at all.  Special dietary items, nutritional supplements, or products recommended by a naturopathic doctor add up each month.

Expenses add up!

From health insurance, to clinical appointments like massage, chiropractics, and physiotherapy, to nutritional supplements, pharmaceuticals,and other health products.

I can save you money on health…

  • Helping you to choose the right nutritional supplements for you
  • With referrals to the right health practitioners for you
  • Create a diet that supports your health

Consider how much you spend on your groceries, and items that you prioritize because of their health benefits, dieting ingredients, and specialty foods.  Also consider items like gym memberships, air and water filter units, and cosmetics for skin, hair, and nails.  Add up all these expenses and ask your self these questions:

Am I healthier now? 

Will I be healthier as a result? 

Invest in your health

With an overwhelming selection of health products, it helps to know what will pay dividends. It is always wise to consult about which products are right for you, and to get as much information as you can to make knowledgeable and informed choices.  

For each dollar you spend on your health, consider the investment into your future life.  Preventative health is cost effective, proactive, and smart.  There is wisdom to the old addage that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.  Like a good financial plan, and health investment plan can help you to achieve your wellness goals.

Extended Health Benefits

Part of my commitment to you is helping you to take full advantage of the wellness services covered, by helping you to find practitioners that will support your healing or help to keep you well.

New Clients – What to expect

The time to begin a new journey towards health is now – in every decision we make, beginning with the commitment to start

Starting on your Path

Reaching healthy goals can be a lifelong pursuit.  My aim is to guide and assist you in walking the healthiest path for you.  It is my belief that you deserve balance, happiness, and freedom from suffering.  With a plan of action you can begin to feel good about your choices while we build health together.    

The first step is the hardest because of the commitment required to follow through.

Adopting a Positive Outlook

Our thoughts effect the way we feel.  Positive thoughts generate positive feelings.  Negative thoughts diminish a sense of well being by lowering our overall energy.  By choosing to focus on what is virtuous, enlightening, and healing we change the way we feel and experience life.

My goal is to empower you in your relationship to healthy living.  Consulting is only one step toward self-empowerment.  A dedication and commitment to yourself is required.  Each step is meaningful toward the goal of well being, but the first step is the hardest.  Make a stand for your own well being and decide to live each day as it were meant to be lived.

First 30 Minutes Free

Lets get to know each other and begin the conversation.  My goal for our telephone meeting is to explore what your health needs are and to begin a process of deciding what path is right for you.

I am not a Naturopathic Doctor

In British Columbia and in Canada, Naturopathic Doctors are regulated as physicians who can diagnose and treat disease. Aaron Ander is a Certified Nutritional Consultant, and a Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner, and has certificates in Nutrition and Mental Health, Mental Health and Addictions, and Holistic Iridology. Instead of diagnosis, Aaron provides Holistic Health assessments and treats symptoms of imbalance in the body based on health history and information seen in the iris of the eyes.  Aaron cannot diagnose disease or treat disease as a Naturopathic Doctor would.


Registered Dietitian vs. Holistic Nutritionist

Dietitians work specifically with disease, where Holistic Nutritionists do not.  Holistic Nutritionists can work alongside your doctor as do Dietitians, but the focus is slightly different.  Holistic health practitioners work more generally with wellness rather than by addressing a specific disease.  In this way we create complimentary services to both Dietitians as well as medical doctors.

Do I need to ask my family Doctor before the consult?

Natural Path Healing provides a Complementary Health Care service that works alongside your current treatment plan. Our support plans work in addition to your current health services by supporting your body Holistically.

Medical Treatment can continue alongside diet therapy. Holistic Nutrition addresses  symptom of body imbalance that can be corrected by supporting the nourishment of vital organs, elimination of toxins, removing food allergies, and supplementing nutritional deficiencies often missed by conventional treatments.


Is this service  psychotherapy or counseling?

Counseling is a general term that applies to any kind of counselor who provides direct support for mental health. Psychotherapy is “therapy” for your “psyche”. Aaron’s education is Holistic and draws on several disciplines that together view mental health in a context that includes the physical body, emotional wellness and self-care, thoughts and beliefs, and leads us to an overall experience of peace, serenity, and overall well-being.

Please continue to see your psychiatrist, and continue to take all medications prescribed in combination with this service. The best result come from addressing disease from several angles and with an open mind to changing habits, thoughts, ideas, and beliefs.

No Barrier Health Care

I will not turn away clients on the basis of prejudice, discrimination, or biases.  My ideal client is one who is ready to make changes to their lives, their attitudes, and their relationship to their body, for a more healthy one.  As a practitioner I can also help to advocate for my clients while navigating complex medical needs, through an integrative and complimentary approach.  I am glad to work alongside your medical and alternative practitioners to find ways that can enhance the success of conventional treatments.

Are you experiencing financial hardship? Please contact with me to figure out a way to make these fees more realistic for you.  No person will be turned away on financial terms alone.  Call me at 250-551-4233 to talk about a plan to get help and begin to feel better.
