Dr. Mauro's Approach
A lot of my new patients come in saying they’ve already tried to figure out their health issues on their own by asking “Dr. Google”, but as you probably already know, it can get quite confusing, overwhelming and time consuming.
One random person from across the world somewhere who claims to be an “expert” says one thing while another one completely contradicts it! Who are you supposed to believe?!
Don’t get me wrong, I encourage my patients to educate themselves by reading credible information online. But for the average person doing their own research online, trying to piece it all together, figure out the root cause of their health issues and then treating themselves is pretty much impossible in my opinion.
The truth is, the key to solving your particular set of health issues CANNOT BE FOUND ON THE INTERNET because you are UNIQUE!
It makes more sense to see a professional, licensed, Naturopathic Doctor like myself (who not only has 5 university degrees but more importantly has 23 years of hands-on experience treating real people and seeing real results) who will give you a plan to follow.
That’s what you need, someone who has a lot of experience who will give you a strategy, a PLAN.
There are literally 30 things you could be doing to get healthier and more balanced, but my job is to figure out where you should start and then guide you on your transformation to optimal wellness.
That’s what I hear most from my new patients; they don’t know where to START.
Fact is, knowing where to start is the single biggest factor to successfully changing your overall health.
Stop wasting your precious time and energy trying to figure out where to start. Let me help you.
Most Common Health Conditions
In the past 23 years, I have successfully helped thousands of people with a variety of conditions and symptoms using personalized naturopathic treatment plans specifically designed to get to the root cause of their health issues. In my practice I have a special interest and focus on treating the following health issues:
Thyroid & Hormonal Imbalances
Anxiety & Depression
Weight & Cardiometabolic health
GI Tract Issues (IBS - Crohn's - Colitis - GERD - Bloating)
My naturopathic board doesn't allow me to say I "specialize" in a field but they do allow me to say I have a special interest. Since most of my patients main health concern is with their gut, I have a special interest in treating the GI tract. My new patients either have a diagnosed gut problem (IBD, IBS, GERD, etc.) or many have generalized abdominal pain or bloating yet normal diagnostic tests (i.e., colonoscopy, gastroscopy, etc.).

Stress - Anxiety - Depression
Since I started my naturopathic clinic 23 years ago, I've seen a significant increase in the number of people who have anxiety and/or depression, especially with teenagers and those in their 20's. Some are trying to get off their medication and want naturopathic support while others are trying to avoid going on pharmaceuticals in the first place. Read More...
Detoxification - Cleanse
A lot of people come in wanting to do a “detox” and clean up their diet but are confused with all the “cleanses” that are out there. First of all, know that most of the supplements which are labelled “detox” or “cleanse” are full of laxatives. Making you have diarrhea isn’t necessarily a detox. Read More...
Hormones (Thyroid - Menopause - Diabetes)
Over 85% of my patients are female and many of them come in with some sort of hormonal imbalance. Regulating your hormones isn't as simple as taking a pharmaceutical pill the rest of your life. The thyroid, adrenals, ovaries, pancreas, pituitary and hypothalamus are all very important parts of the endocrine system and will be influenced by (and will influence) many different organ systems of the body. It's a very complicated and dynamic system. Consequently, there are no quick fixes or magic wands that will make everything go back to normal. Read More...
Many of my new patients realize a lot of their symptoms will improve if they would lose some weight. Of course, losing weight requires a proper plan. I can’t guarantee that you’ll lose 30lbs overnight but if you follow my naturopathic treatment plan, I’m certain you’ll be on your way to your ideal weight. Read More...
(Psoriasis - Eczema - Hives)
People who come in to my naturopathic clinic with skin issues are very frustrated with their medical treatment (which is often topical). I educate them about the skin and how it is not just a coat that we wear. But rather, it's an important organ which is intimately connected to our GI tract by the gut-skin axis. Read more...
