Education and Background:

As a child I strove to understand what would bring about my own healing and that of others.  I saw a potential in nutrition, yoga, meditation, herbology, and other disciplines that became growing interests until eventually I studied to understand how all these things can work alongside medical care.

Special Thanks to my mentors, teachers, and professional supports:

Holistic Health

Each person develops unique health conditions based on their genetic and environmental exposures. Healing follows as individually as the person. Although the same drug, and the same treatments may be used, how we transform illness must be matched by thorough understanding of the underlying cause. We treat the symptoms and the cause by identifying and supplementing all underlying nutritional deficiencies with foods and supplements, address all areas of lifestyle health that influence mind/body inter-relationships by supporting the overall healthy balance of systems.

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.  

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 symptoms and health information seen in the iris of the eyes.  Aaron cannot diagnose disease or treat disease as a Naturopathic Doctor.

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 for 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.
