Articles where Dr. Iva Lloyd, ND has been quoted

Canadian Chemical News

Can Good Health Come in a Bottle? November/December 2010  "This insular thinking keeps the focus of treatment on taking medication versus on self-responsibility and lifestyle changes... The naturopathic approach to treatment involves using 'the least force' and 'supporting the healing power of the body'."



Vitamins and Supplements: What you need to know – April 2010  “Some people think they can ‘cheat; on the food side of things because they are taking a multi,” says Iva Lloyd, “But supplements are truly meant to supplement a healthy lifestyle and diet.”



What Happens in an Annual Checkup September 2008  “Only naturopaths stimulate the innate healing ability of the body. Health and disease are a continuum; you’re not healthy one day and sick the next. There are early signs that the body is heading toward illness. If you’re working with a naturopath, you’ll never get too far along the path of disease.”

Natural First-Aid Fixes – May 2005  “For an all-over burn, add one to three cups of apple-cider vinegar to a cool bath. The vinegar has tannins that help restore the natural pH balance,” says Iva Lloyd, a naturopathic doctor in Markham, Ont.”



Cocoa Nuts May/June 2007  “If you’re truly looking to chocolate for a health boost, it has to be dark – and not just any dark will do. For it to be considered healthy, the concentration of cocoa should be at least 70 percent,” says Dr. Iva Lloyd, a naturopathic doctor  . . .



Naturopathic Profession Growing Rapidly in US and Canada – Num 76, Nov 2007 – Jan 2008  “Iva Lloyd, ND, chair of CAND, also noted a high demand for naturopathic treatment in Canada. CAND has calculated that there are approximately 1,400 properly trained and board-certified NDs practicing in Canada.”



ND & DNM: What's the Difference? – November 2004 Dr. Iva Lloyd, ND, chair of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors discusses the difference between naturopathic doctors and doctors of natural medicine.

Holistic Health Professionals Weigh in on Immune Defenses – May 2003 “Dr. Iva Lloyd, ND, says that susceptibility and risk are based on two main factors: current health of the immune system and reducing the effects of stress, worry and fear. Regarding the latter, fear of SARS can be a dangerous thing in and of itself.”


Telemedicine: Its Role in Naturopathic Practice



Dr. Lloyd, ND was a lead editor on the Health Technology Assessment on Naturopathy – a 750-page book outlining naturopathic practice, effectiveness, economics and safety.
