New Clients – What to expect


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.

Consult with Aaron

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.

Is Aaron 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 for anxiety, depression, and other psychological problems. 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.

We are made of the Dust of the Earth


The body requires nutrients from food.  Our plants grow in the soil which is a source of minerals that we need to stay healthy.  Only plants can transform these vital nutrients into a form which our body can handle. Organic food, grown in ideal conditions, allow for the plant and animal to provide us with all the building blocks we need for life.
