....to develop gradually via a process of evolutionary growth to a higher level or adaptive state or conditioning...to surpass our previous limitations in understandings, to move beyond the constraints and ailments that block us from creating the health and happiness that we seek...
The meaning and essence behind the concept of Evolve Naturopathic Vitality Centre is that we appreciate and acknowledge the inherent healing wisdom of the body and strive to adapt and evolve treatments in alignment with the natural healing forces within as the body as it begins its process back towards self regulation.
The Ouroboros; is an ancient symbol depicting a snake or dragon swallowing it's own tail. It reminds us of the alchemical traditions of the balance between death and rebirth.
We are constantly re-creating our-'cell'ves, within these cycles of transformation, and the balance within nature's rhythms of life and death.
In order to evolve, we must take a close look at all the patterning in our lives that has woven illness into our lives, so that one can shift and release pieces of that old constructs which no longer serves oneself, in order to recreate the life of healthy vitality which we seek. This is the process, the constant process of deconstructing oneself in order to recreate oneself, the beautiful process to e-volve.
We are the natural evolution in your health care!
At Evolve Naturopathic Vitality Centre we are committed to the principles of health and healing.
We combine a unique and comprehensive approach to treating illness and promoting health. By respecting the laws of nature, we help bridge the gap, merging the wisdom of traditional healing methods with current scientific research and understandings into the manifestations of disease and the evolution back towards health.
At Evolve Naturopathic Vitality Centre, we use a fully integrated and comprehensive approach in the assessment of each individual starting with standardized diagnostic testing, to the delivery of highly specialized treatment plans and the evolution of health regimes to match the evolving clinical presentation and the stage of the evolution of the disease process. The treatment plan evolves with you...as your system begins to dynamically respond so to does your treatment protocol.
It is important to understand the path of the disease and it's clinical manifestations as well as the evolution back towards health by treating the individualized responses and susceptibilities to those challenges.
Once we have evaluated and diagnosed the specific health issues, we draw upon a wide array of Naturopathic tools and services to address your concerns and ailments.
Each treatment plan is tailor made to match the individual who has manifested the particular ailment or constellation of symptoms that may have previously failed to meet diagnostic criteria or be of a subclinical presentation.
Naturopathic treatments may include an integrated fusion of the following modalities:
As treatments begin, your body naturally responds and begins its process towards altering and auto-correcting its physiological, biochemical, structural and functional responses as a means towards restoring proper "homeostatic" balance, where a natural inherent equilibrium is key in rebalancing.
The goal of Naturopathic Medicine at Evolve Naturopathic Vitality Centre is to constantly evolve and tailor your individualized treatment plans to match your evolving needs along your journey towards health and well being.
Each individual is different and manifests illness in a unique way, based on their constitution, muiasm and reactional modes. Ten people can have the same cold, but each may present with a varying clinical presentation. Therefore, we must treat the individual and the constellation of their unique symptom picture in order for the best health outcome and to correct and rebalance decompensations in their reactional system.
This means that each person may receive a different form of treatment based on the best way that they need to heal from an individualitzed approach.
Each treatment plan is ultimately customized to target the causal factors at the specific stage of it's development based on the miasmatic diathesis.
It is my sincere wish that everyone could step forward along this path and reach for that natural balanced state of health and well-being.
At Evolve Naturopathic Vitality Centre, we are here to help you in your evolution towards health and I look forward to personally assisting you in reaching these goal.

For true healing to unfold, we seek to uncover the root causes of disease rather than suppressing the presenting symptoms.
A thorough and comprehensive intake reveals key insights into underlying causalities from which the process of removing the obstacles to health can begin. Identifying nutritional deficiencies or maladapted metabolic shifts are addressed and steps are taken to rebalance compensations in the homeostatic self-regulating systems with the aim of restoring the body’s natural rhythms and physiological responses to alter the terrain in which disease has manifested.
This is achieved by respecting the principles of Naturopathic Medicine and treating the evolving individual in their entirety by aligning the balance of mind, body, spirit and emotion into a restored system of wholeness and well~being.
Using a variety of natural therapies in an integrative approach, our qualified and licensed Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, Dr. Cheryl D’ Costa, BPHE, ND, R.Ac will custom-tailor an individualized treatment plan directed to promoting your body’s innate healing capabilities.
Whether you are searching for a fast and effective resolution to an acute or chronic illness, expediting recovery from a sports related or traumatic injury, interested in developing or maintaining a healthy lifestyle, preventing disease from manifesting or looking for alternatives to treat a current dis-eased state, we offer a full complement of services to address your needs.
Part of our mission here is to help preserve the roots of naturopathic medicine and the ancient teachings and healing techniques of the indigenous elders, who carry with them a tremendous wealth of knowledge into the traditional healing techniques and the laws of the natural world.
It is with great respect and humble gratitude for all my teachers and elders, who, for thousands of years have cultivated a healthy respect for the environment and our relationship with the natural world and all the medicines she carries for us.
I honour those teachers who have embued in me the power of nature, and healed me personally on my own personal healing journey.
Their teachings are the roots of our medicines, and these teachings are slowly being lost through time and the generational gaps.
It is time to look to the past, and re-member that which we once knew so that we can apply the tried, tested and true measures of healing in the modern world.
There is much to be learned from the past, that science has yet to reveal...
