About The NMRCNourished Minds . Healthy Lives
The Naturopathic Medical Research Clinic is a Toronto clinic that uses Orthomolecular and Naturopathic Medicine to treat an array of general health and mental health conditions.
Naturopathic Medicine is a health care system that addresses the root causes of illness and considers individual physical, mental, emotional, genetic, social, and environmental factors.
Naturopathic Doctors are highly educated and part of a regulated healthcare profession that integrates science and standard medical diagnostics with a broad range of natural therapies.
Naturopathic Doctors work in partnership with other regulated healthcare providers to ensure that patients receive the most comprehensive and effective care possible. Naturopathic treatment can be done safely along standard drug therapy.

Targeted Nutritional Treatment is an Orthomolecular* approach that uses lab testing with the aim of correcting a person’s key nutrient and physiological imbalances.
* ‘Ortho’ means ‘to correct’ and in terms of health, ‘Orthomolecular’ medicine is a treatment modality that aims to correct body system imbalances with natural non-drug substances.
In terms of our physical and mental functioning, extensive research shows that our body and brain are influenced by stress and other biochemical factors that have profound harmful effects on us. Left uncontrolled, these factors may create chronic states of mental and physical compromise. Without physical health of the digestive tract, liver, adrenal, or thyroid, the brain cannot function well.
There are about 15 syndromes that influence both physical and mental health and when these basic chemical pathways are corrected the whole body can benefit. Nutritional and orthomolecular treatment can be done safely and can complement standard drug treatment.
… all prospective patients interested in treatment should contact our Reception Team at 416.944.8824. You have the option of getting a preview of your orthomolecular health status by filling out our Medical Nutrition Assessment.
The NMRC was founded in 2001, and has been providing orthomolecular clinical nutrition to the public ever since. Located in Oakville & uptown Toronto, The NMRC is focused on longevity and improving the mental health of all Ontarians. Our targeted mental health treatment and stress management programs are among the most comprehensive and focused orthomolecular interventions in North America. The basic premise of orthomolecular medicine is to address the cause of a condition as opposed to palliating it.
What is this Orthomolecular Treatment all about?
For an evidence-based answer please read the following articles:
Families in crisis should take note of the following:
The undiagnosed go ‘under the radar’
Those taking psychiatric drugs are sometimes imposed with greater risks than benifits
A significant portion of people that take psychiatric drugs have difficulty coming off them and this sets the stage for longterm complacency
About 50% of all compliant cases that we treat are much improved with targeted orthomolecular medicine
Another 40% often meet improvement goals with symptom alleviation often allowing them the ability to sustain lower effective doses of medication and/or the ability to get back to work or continue on a previous vocational direction
5% remain unimproved due to the magnitude and severity of presenting imbalances or due to the negative influence of psychiatric medications
5% who are non-compliant understandably do not improve
Early detection intervention has significnat potential when orthomolecular medicine is implemented
