4 Tax Tips for Naturopathic Medical Expenses

1. Naturopathic Tax Deductibility

Naturopathic medicine is tax deductible.

Both federally and provincially.

No special forms required.

Just save those receipts!

Can it really be as simple as deducting your total naturopathic medical expenses for the year?

Yes!

But also no.

In that it depends on your definition of "year".

2. Optimizing Naturopathic Tax Benefits via Medical Expenses Period

And you thought a year was January 1 - December 31!

Ha!

The CRA is not bound by such Gregorian conventions.

In fact, you are free to claim all eligible naturopathic medical expenses for any 12-month period ending in this tax year that you didn't already claim in the last one.

So you aren't penalized for having medical expenses disproportionately distributed throughout the year.

You can instead receive the best naturopathic treatment for you - whenever you need it.

Come tax-time, the 12-month period can be selected to best optimize your medical expenses.

3. Naturopathic Tax Benefits for Families

You can receive naturopathic tax benefits - even if you've never seen a naturopathic doctor in your life!

How is that possible?

By claiming the medical expenses of your spouse and your dependants - children, parents, and extended family members alike - on your return.

Careful, though.

The tax credit is progressive, decreasing slightly as net income increases.

So it's often optimal for the family member with the lowest net income to claim for all members.

4. Naturopathic Tax Benefits for Self-Employed & Businesses

Naturopathic medical expenses are even more valuable for the self-employed and businesses.

Self-employed individuals, partnerships, and corporations alike have means to deduct medical expenses as business expenses.

A Private Health Services Plan (PHSP) provides tax-free financing of medical expenses for sole proprietors, partnerships, corporations, and their employees.

Such naturopathic tax benefits are, in my experience, typically in the thousands to tens-of-thousands of dollars.

And they rise with income.

With no limit.

Providing an unparalleled level of naturopathic tax incentives.

Naturopathic Medicine & Homeopathy Testimonials

I've always had an addictive personality, which can be great when I put it towards something productive, like work.

Last year, before your homeopathic prescription and the neuro-emotional treatment, I was a full-blown alcoholic, and smoked four packs a day.

I'd lose myself in destructive things like gambling and food.

Now I only drink or smoke socially and irregularly ... once or twice a month maximum.

And I'm in control the whole time.

The doctor tells me my liver is doing much better too.

I'm also not coughing or hacking up stuff like I had.

C.P., Parksville, BC

For about three years, I was suffering from unpleasant symptoms with my digestion which eventually triggered my social anxiety that was going to the extent of periodic panic attacks occurring in crowds, before going out of home or with no apparent or trivially discoverable reason.

At first, the remedy Andy gave me made some gradual, slow changes, but we weren't quite there, yet. Later on, Andy found some interesting homeopathic solutions that improved my quality of life big time. 

Like with any sensible approach, I didn't become absolutely okay overnight (and I still have some issues) but it looks like my social anxiety came down to a much more tolerable level and I forgot when was the last time I experienced a panic attack like I did before. Suffice to say, I am not obsessed with my condition anymore — and that's a huge step forward.

Also, the probiotics and various herbal medicines Andy gave me to improve my digestion were working quite well, albeit at times those solutions were rather temporary.

I don't normally take any of these things regularly now and yet my stomach is doing much better than before.

Thank you, Andy!

I had been living with prostate cancer for months, and the symptoms just got to the point that I had to do something.

The pills that my regular doctor gave me just made me dizzy and tired.

So I went looking for natural alternatives. 

After getting lukewarm results from the acupuncturist and chiropractor, I decided to then see Dr. Somody.

The homeopathic remedy and bowen therapy treatment he gave me made my urination more controlled and regular.

I went from having to get up four times a night to pee to being able to sleep through the night.

My eyes and hearing have also improved, and don't have to live with that annoying chronic cough now either.

R.L., Chilliwack, BC

The homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional technique cured my blisters, warts, and pustules, and I haven't had any flare-ups or outbreaks for over a year.

Andy's Bowen therapy helped my knee and hip pain a lot as well.

J.W., Delta (Ladner), BC

I have seen a huge shift in myself - mentally, physically and emotionally.

It's awesome! 

Things are going really great and most importantly I am connecting on all these different levels. 

Yesterday, I was jumping on my bed with my kids and I wasn't having those crazy heart palpitations, I wasn't even out of breath, I am not cold...I could go on and on...thank you.

Tamar Conner, Kentville, Nova Scotia

I can sleep so much better with the homeopathic remedy!

Andy's neuroemotional therapy helped my headaches and blood pressure to decrease in intensity.

And the neck pain is gradually getting better with his Bowen technique.

Jenny W, Mission (Hatzic), BC

My husband and I both had fertility difficulties for years before meeting Dr. Somody. The few times we managed to conceive, we'd lose the pregnancy. But then three weeks after Dr. Somody's homeopathic treatment, I became pregnant again, and we now have a beautiful baby boy!

G.A., Coquitlam, BC

My moods aren't nearly so volatile now and I don't get the sudden spinning attacks of vertigo since Dr. Andy's homeopathic treatment.

The biofeedback has helped cure my hormonal problems, which has allowed me to conceive finally after years of trying!

The pain in my temples and big toe also went away after the Bowen therapy sessions.

G.M., Abbotsford, BC

His speech impediment and drooling are not so much now since the homeopathy and the biofeedback.

He seems better able to concentrate - his teachers have even noticed a difference, and he's doing better at school.

A.D., New Westminster, BC

I just wanted to send you a big huge thank you!!

That cream is wonderful!

i put it on last night and this morning and my fingers feel great!

I have given my sister some of the cream that you gave me for my nephew and we think that it is helping and in fact their naturopath wants them to use it exclusively!
