It can be used to balance the energy pathways in the body, called sometimes the meridians, and this helps in treating many disorders such as stress, anxiety, sleep disorders, and reflux disease. Sometimes, electrical stimulation can be added to the acupuncture needles to strengthen its effects such as when joint or muscle pains are treated. Acupuncture has gained a great popularity in treating many disorders such as infertility, diabetes mellitus and peripheral neuropathy. The use of acupuncture needs a lot of clinical experience by the licensed naturopathic doctor.

Glutathione is a natural antioxidant that has the function of fighting against oxidative stress. It is a normally secreted substance by the human liver, and its main role as an antioxidant is to neutralize the effects of toxins or foreign molecules introduced into our bodies. With repeated exposure to stress, pollution and toxins, the body consumes a lot of glutathione to get rid of these toxins so it gets depleted. Replacement of lost or depleted glutathione can enhance the body's ability to fight pollution and toxins. One of the very prominent examples of body's exposure to pollutants and foreign substances is lung allergies or what is called bronchial asthma.
These are plant-derived products that mimic in structure the body hormones such as the estrogen, progesterone, and thyroid hormones. They can do exactly the same function as the synthetic hormones with the advantage of having less toxicity and complications. For example, the desiccated thyroid hormone is not a synthetic but a naturally available thyroid extract that helps in the management of several thyroid disorders such as Hashimoto's disease and hyperthyroidism. Moreover, bio-identical estrogen and progesterone hormones can be used in a variety of women health such as postmenopausal syndrome (hot flushes, flashes, vaginal dryness and anxiety and sleep disorders), premenstrual syndrome and irregular uterine or vaginal bleeding.
Vitamin B12 is a very important vitamin for many physiological processes of the body such as the formation of red blood cells, and nerve function. Vitamin B12 deficiency usually happens to vegans, or people with chronic gastritis, and alcoholics. If vitamin B12 is deficient it may result in anaemia ( called megaloblastic anaemia), and possibly loss of balance due to injury to the posterior tracts of the spinal cord, and may be peripheral neuropathy. Correction of vitamin C deficiency can be easily done via a weekly intramuscular injection of vitamin B 12.
One of the effective modalities in pain management is the use of pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF). It is based on a low-frequency, low-intensity electromagnetic radiation that is used for pain management and inflammation. It acts by stimulating the blood flow to the area reducing inflammation and oedema. There are no risk hazards associated with its use as its frequencies lie within the safe human use and are approved by Health Canada.
