What makes Dr. Trethart different?
He believes that healing is a process of education, life-style changes, and treatments based on the specific needs of the individual as determined by extensive testing and observation.
Dr. Trethart and his staff strive to establish a supportive relationship with patients and are committed to a philosophy of continuing patient education. Over the years Dr. Trethart has found that the patients who heal the fastest are those that take the time to be educated about their bodies and their illnesses, and take greater responsibility for determining and controlling their own healing process.
Once educated, patients are encouraged to make appropriate life-style changes which will restore youthfulness, energy, and the bodies natural defenses. Many chronic conditions and illnesses can be effectively and easily treated with diet and life-style changes. For cases of more serious illnesses and diseases, Dr. Trethart and the patient will explore all available treatment options whether in mainstream or alternative medicine, in order to determine which treatments are best suited to the patients unique situation.
Dr. Trethart is also one of the few practitioners in Canada offering Breast Thermography along with several other therapies and diagnostic tools to treat and prevent chronic diseases, including heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
