The gut-brain connexion
Healthy neuro-hormonal, immune and metabolic communication
The connected balance between head and belly
Whether you’re experiencing stress, tummy aches, food intolerances, or depressive or anxious moods, we have natural solutions adapted to your state of health with a better gut-brain connection.

Results: a lasting improvement in vitality, sleep, appetite, mood, neuro-hormonal and immune balance.

How I can help you
Have you tried several approaches and products that didn’t work? Do you feel you’ve wasted time and money, and your health continues to decline? We have over thirty-five (35) years of combined experience in naturopathy, homeopathy, mind-body approaches and practical kinesiology for a gut-brain (re)connection. This process allows you to find the causes behind the causes, and find out if health products are best for you with gastrointestinal and nervous (stress++) health problems. (see About us)
Comment ça fonctionne
The first virtual consultation (FaceTime, Messenger video or Google Meet) lasts 90 minutes, during which we review the health assessment – sent and completed beforehand – the reasons for consultation, your expectations and our recommendations.
Additional functional field and vitality tests may be recommended for a better gut-brain connection.
We offer follow-up visits lasting sixty minutes per month and weekly coaching sessions lasting fifteen minutes to maintain motivation, reassess your condition and adjust recommendations accordingly.
The length of follow-up depends on the health issue.
Professional advice and follow-up care
“Jean-Pierre has helped me a few times with health-related problems, and I’m really grateful. He has a professional approach and takes the time to listen to us. This is much appreciated. His warnings and recommendations are still part of my dietary follow-up. Even today, a simple phone call is enough to update my health status.
I recommend her naturopathic services to anyone who wants professional advice and assured follow-up.”
Christine B., Montreal
Quality support and health education
“I’ve always had fragile health, and at the age of 25, I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease…
Today, it’s with a great deal of gratitude to life and to the beautiful people who stood in my way that I can finally say I’m healthy again!
As a naturopath, Jean-Pierre Deschênes, is one of the precious people who has been able to offer me quality support and health education to guide me towards lifestyle habits that generate health!…”

I still can't believe it...no more pain!
“I consulted Jean Pierre for a general malaise in my body (back pain, stomach pain, sciatica, legs, restless sleep, etc.). I was always in pain somewhere! I was taking Advils and Tylenols at least two days out of three).
Jean Pierre helped me choose the right foods to regain optimal health, and the right quantities to find a balance. I followed his recommendations to the letter and the pain disappeared completely. My back and sciatica used to ache when I rode my motorcycle for 1 hour. I’ve just come back from a 5000 km motorcycle-camping trip and no pain…I still can’t believe it.
I highly recommend Jean Pierre for his attentiveness, his life experience, his skills, his knowledge and above all his passion for human health.”
