Naturopaths study a variety of alternative healing methods, including homeopathy, but receive what amounts to a basic training in these modalities. Homeopaths specialize in homeopathic medicine, which is a complete medical system. A Homeopath will prescribe medicine to treat the root of the disease and ultimately cure the ailment naturally from within outward. Both Homeopathy and Naturopathy are regulated health professions in the province of Ontario.
OHIP does not cover visits to a homeopathic doctor or acupuncturist. However, extended healthcare plans include homeopathic medicine consultations, remedies and acupuncture. Since the decision to cover these services is at the discretion of your employer, please check with your provider to verify your coverage. If you do not have extended healthcare benefits, you can claim your visits under medical expenses in your taxes.
