OLD SCHOOL APPROACH
Traditionally, many individuals expressed little interest in health matters until a problem developed or something went wrong. Some people would arrange time to have a complete physical on an annual basis and some would have a check up much less often than that. Back in the day, people went to the doctor for a checkup or because they were sick.
Almost anything else was often considered rather indulgent or excessive. And many people looked forward to retirement simply so they could stop working or so they could get a little more sleep , or just spend more time visiting with friends and relatives. But now many people look forward to retirement so they can also travel more, learn a new language, master a different hobby, develop new skills, read more books, take interesting courses or do volunteer work to help others. But in order to embrace a more rewarding retirement, you truly need to remain healthy enough to actually enjoy it.
THE MODERN APPROACH
The modern approach to health and wellness is to stay healthy, rather than treat illness. Modern men and women are better informed and more interested in their health and well being. The field of natural health and supplements is one of the fastest growing industries in the world. And this would not be so unless people were demanding better alternatives than drugs to feel better, live longer and be healthier. At [Better] Medical Centre, we are dedicated to a complete approach to wellness.
THE COMPLETE APPROACH
This approach includes all of the advantages of conventional medicine and medical therapies, as well as the significant benefits of wellness medicine. At Better Medical Centre, we combine both the science of wellness medicine and conventional medicine to provide you with the best possible results.
When you visit us, you have the opportunity to have all of your needs assessed and addressed. Our medical staff will take a complete medical history and evaluation. You won’t feel rushed since you will spend as much time as you would need with a physician, to ensure that all of your medical concerns are addressed; and any medical problems treated. The basic principles of health are: nutrition, fitness, stress reduction and the natural balance of your body. We treat all aspects of wellness, including holistic nutrition, naturopathy, acupuncture,and anti-aging.
We don’t believe in diets but we can help you if you have trouble losing weight or maintaining weight. Does it seem like you gain weight simply by looking at food? You’re not alone.
Your body needs nutrients to function optimally. You need the right amount for your body and circumstances. In order to get the nutrients into your body, you need a health digestive system. You need to be able to break down your food and absorb it efficiently. Soon you will be able to fuel every part of your body; and make the hormones you need.
We understand the desire for quick results. We also understand the frustration of working hard at your health and not seeing results.
Consider the comment of Joanne W., Taber, Alberta:
“Look at my flat tummy! I lost 5 pounds and I didn’t do a thing different from what I was doing before….”
How did she do that? Wouldn’t you like to do that? And more?

Natural balance of the body requires optimal function of every organ system (eg. good digestion, healthy liver for detoxifying) and the right proportion of vitamins and minerals. Naturopathic medicine is devoted to maintaining health and finding the root cause of any symptom. This is where the most health benefits are found, as simply treating symptoms is no longer acceptable to the well informed man and woman. At Better Medical Centre, we apply principles of naturopathic medicine to support your health. As part of your treatment protocol, you may undergo cleansing for yeast, or detoxifying your liver. We use the intricate knowledge of physiology to safely guide your cleansing. We do not recommend fasting or restrictive diets for cleansing.
Naturopathy can help you live your best and healthiest life. Learn more. Contact us today.
Acupuncture and traditional Chinese medicine contributes to wellness by providing improved energy, circulation and balance within the body. Deep muscle tension and spasm, chronic pain and joint pains are the most common reasons people seek acupuncture. It is also used to promote sleep, reduce anxiety and stress and help with sexual dysfunction. The ancient practice of Chinese medicine and acupuncture, precedes the history of modern medicine. Yet it can still solve many health problems when conventional medicine is unable to provide a solution. In fact, acupuncture treatments for headaches and chronic pain, often first take place due to patient referrals by conventional medical clinics.
If you suffer from chronic pain or the frequent and frightful experience of horrible headaches, learn how acupuncture can help you manage the pain and take control of a better life. Contact us today.
In order to truly ” defy time”, we need to better understand the process of aging. Advances in medical science have identified many processes that accelerate aging; and the onset of the diseases of aging, Anti-aging medicine is devoted to improving the quality and quantity of the human lifespan.
This area of medicine has shown that aging of the body occurs because levels of hormones decline. The body becomes inflamed and can develop many of the diseases that we dread, such as: cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, heart attacks/ heart disease and arthritis. Our body needs good vitamin and mineral levels, as well as healthy and wholesome food to nourish our cells. This promotes good hormone balance and a low level of inflammation.
We can help you dramatically delay the pain of growing older. You will be able to live your life to the fullest and enjoy every part of it. You will be able to do all the things you ever wanted to do, and without a second thought – whether you desire to go hiking, biking, mountain climbing, embark on an adventure trip , or just participate in sports with your children or grandchildren.
