We’re thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new website – the first Farnsworth Clinic website, ever!
Farnsworth Clinic is British Columbia’s oldest naturopathic medical clinic. 2015 marks our 65th anniversary and we are proud to have provided decades of fundamental naturopathic care to our patients.
In an era when so many new therapies crest the horizon each year, we remind ourselves that human physiology hasn’t changed much in the last 5,000 years; what worked before, works now.
We believe that identifying and removing the causes of disease, treating the whole person with individualized care plans and educating patients on how to stay healthy are tenets that never go out of fashion.
At the Farnsworth Clinic we are privileged to be treating third and fourth generation families. We proudly offer care to patients that have travelled from all over the province – indeed, from across the Pacific Northwest.
In our entire 65-year existence, Farnsworth Clinic has never taken out a print advertisement, distributed flyers, or broadcast radio or television ads. We have relied on word-of-mouth and referrals from satisfied patients, other naturopathic doctors and allied health care professionals, including medical doctors, chiropractors, dentists, physiotherapists, and massage therapists.
Why launch a Farnsworth Clinic website now?
As time passes, we continue to feel that naturopathic medicine is something of a well-kept secret. It’s a secret we’d much rather be public knowledge.
There are more than 500 licensed naturopathic doctors in British Columbia, ready to offer naturopathic therapies to more than four million B.C. residents.
As a profession we have made important strides in becoming more integrated as primary health care physicians, with expanded scope of practice – including prescriptive authority.
We are part of an evolving model of health care. The current health care system is permeated by a desire to focus on the disease rather than the person. We hope to be part of a shift toward preventative health and wellness.
We encourage you to read through the website and learn how naturopathic medicine can help you and your family. On it, you’ll find pages that provide information about both the history of the naturopathic medical profession and about Farnsworth Clinic. You can learn about the basic tenets, or philosophies, of naturopathic medicine, alongside commonly treated conditions, therapies we offer and collaborations we engage in to ensure you receive the best treatment possible.
We invite you to explore naturopathic medicine and see how it can improve your health and the health of your family.
