Naturopathic doctor has new location and longer hours to meet patient need
KEMPTVILLE  - Well-known naturopath Dr. Shawn Yakimovich is extending his office hours to better serve and provide shorter wait times to existing and new patients.

Owner of the Kemptville Naturopathic Clinic and licensed under the College of Naturopaths of Ontario, Shawn moved his office to a newly renovated larger space at 215 Van Buren Street earlier this year with the goal of expanding his availability to provide alternative and holistic services. 

He has been serving the community for more than 7 years with a focus on finding the root of a patient's health issues then prescribing effective, natural remedies and treatments to improve quality of life. 

"What we do is harness traditional methods of healing. We're nourishing vitality and stimulating the body's ability to heal itself," says Shawn. More and more people are looking at natural plant medicines for conditions such as anxiety, stress, pain management and general medical treatment. There is also a growing concern over antibiotic resistance so people are looking at more natural and preventative treatments.

"Plant medicines can treat viruses and bacteria. For example, elderberry syrup is a proven treatment for influenza," he says. 

Shawn's services include hydrotherapy, alternating applications of hot and cold water to stimulate healing, acupuncture, herbal and homeopathic medicine. Shawn provides guidance for good nutrition and healthy living. Clients undergo a two-hour assessment to determine their therapeutic and/or medicinal needs.

"Naturopathic therapies such as hydrotherapy and acupuncture enhance the immune system and circulation. Homeopathic medicines stimulate vitality and herbal medicines heal weakened organs and balance hormones," says Shawn.

Office hours are Tuesday to Thursday, 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Friday mornings and weekends for emergency situations. Online booking and direct insurance billing will be introduced in the new year and Shawn has plans to post informative videos on his website. 

Learn more about Shawn, his services and clinic on the Kemptville Naturopathic Clinic website, visit his Facebook page where you'll find his regular "Supplement Spotlight!" posts or call for an appointment at 613-897-1000.
