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
Some companies offer wellness packages included in their health plan. Holistic Nutrition with an ROHP may be covered. Please inquire about an insurance receipt for claiming after our appointment.
If your plan does not cover this service, we can still make use of the other services covered. 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.
Aaron Ander CNP, ROHP
Certified Nutritional Practitioner
Registered Orthomolecular Health Practitioner
Diploma in Holistic Iridology
Welcome to my professional home page. I am so glad you decided to learn about your health. I have made it my life’s work to study health, practice healthy living, and teaching others how to take charge of their health.
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.
Health Intake - $120
In this introductory meeting we will review your health goals, assess your health history, and provide some practical ways you can begin to take better care of your health. Iridology health assessment is optional in this overview.
Follow-up - $80
Following our first appointment we begin to take steps towards building a health program that includes diet and supplements. Learn how your body can benefit from a combination of therapies that treat the underlying cause of your symptoms.
Wellness Package - $250
This includes a health intake, basic health program that looks at nutrition and supplements for health and well-being. I am available for support throughout the process and will follow-up when the program is complete.
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
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.
