Welcome to Vancouver Naturopathic Clinic
We are the longest practicing naturopathic clinic in Vancouver. Dr. Stefan Kuprowsky has been the Vancouver Naturopathic Clinic director since 1985. Dr. Lorne Swetlikoff ran the clinic from 1995 to 2007. Dr. Kuprowsky returned to this clinic in the fall of 2007. We focus on integrating the best of traditional naturopathic healing medicine with the latest state-of-the-art Biological Medicine from Germany and Europe.
One of the most important things Dr. Kuprowsky has learned in over 23 years of practice and treating over 20,000 patients is how much the mind and body are inter-connected. In most people, the mind through the impact of stress affects how the body functions. Similiarily, the health of the body can affect the mind and psychological balance. Real healing occurs when we are able to optimize and balance both our physical and psychological health. Dr. Kuprowsky brings years of wisdom and experience to helping people come to true healing in their bodies, mind and spirits.
Naturopathic Medicine is a distinct healing science and philosophy that blends traditional natural therapies with current advances in the study of human health. It is a system of primary health care that uses natural methods and substances to support and stimulate the body’s inherent self-healing process.
The goal of naturopathic practice is to treat any underlying disorders and to restore normal body function by enhancing the body’s own healing abilities. The Naturopathic Doctor views symptoms of disease as warning signals of improper functioning of the body and unfavourable lifestyle habits. Knowing this, you can appreciate why treatments are individualized to each person.
