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 had three heart attacks, and my doctor told me I probably wouldn't survive another.

When he recommended Dr. Somody, I was afraid I would be put on a strict diet and exercise regime, or have to take lots of supplements.

But Dr. Somody just gave me one homeopathic remedy to take once, did some gentle Bowen therapy, and went back into the past causes behind my heart problems with his neuro-emotional releases.

I first noticed that I was less stressed in pressured situations, like at work or with my children.

I stopped getting the painful pressure in the chest, and could exercise and enjoy life again.

My blood pressure and weight have both dropped without me having to do anything with diet or exercise.

Although I think I am eating better now, since I seem to have a better internal sense of what is good for me now.

B.K., Quebec City, Quebec

I felt 90% better after the first Bowen therapy session with Dr. Andy.

I can't even remember now the last time I had arthritic symptoms, joint or muscle pains.

Donald W, Surrey (South Surrey / White Rock), BC

Thank you so much for everything!

All my eye pain and headache is gone. The most I feel is just a little tingling now and then.

Otherwise everything else is going phenomenally well in life! It just couldn’t be any better.

I also got a new job. I sent out my resume, and it was the one type of job I wanted, and it was just a good fit.

I just had a look on job searching and I just let it happen.

I’m so happy right now!

I also got accepted to a new school and I’ve already started reading the textbooks.

I’m surprised how much I’m actually absorbing. I’ve never been good at that but now I’m actually absorbing it.

And I don’t seem to have so much a problem with nuts these days.

Since the last time I've seen you, I didn't notice my stomach at all. 

Even with other people in my life I’m just been letting them know how I feel about things, instead of letting that hold me back.

It’s just phenomenal.

I look forward to my appointments with you every month!

Jenny C., Vancouver, BC

I'm the master of order, and I'm generally happy about this.

But when it got to the point of literally pulling out my hair ... well, I knew I needed help.

Andy's homeopathic treatment and mental-emotional exercises helped me change somehow.

I still have urges once in a while, but they're much weaker and more fleeting than they had been before.

The Bowen therapy sessions also helped my ankles and wrists.

This may even be the reason I have more energy and drive.

B.I., Victoria (Saanich), BC

I had lots of problems all over my body when I first was referred to you.

I peed myself when I laughed or jumped up and down, and felt like I constantly had to go to the bathroom, but nothing would come out.

My heart also felt like it was jumping out of my chest sometimes.

Homeopathy never had worked for me in the past, but your remedy really did the trick.

And the neuroemotional work helped me to recognize and let go of a bunch of old traumas I had been holding on to.

The exercises you gave me for the pelvic floor strengthening also seemed to help me get control of my bladder.

Lisa A., Langley (Aldergrove), BC

The cancer had made me so frustrated and slowed down.

Time was my enemy, and I had to get better.

Andy's homeopathic remedy, biofeedback and neuroemotional treatments helped my mood and bowels almost immediately.

The cancer didn't go away overnight, but began to recede gradually.

Even during this time though I could tell I was getting better.

I had more energy and motivation than I had had in 20 years.

So when the doctors told me the cancer had gone into partial remission, I wasn't surprised.

Colin Wood, Delta (Ladner), BC

I haven't had any nerve pain, numbness or hand coldness since the Bowen therapy.

My skin and liver don't burn from the toxicity any longer, and I don't get the burning, red, itchy bumps on my face now either.

I've lost 48 pounds since the treatment started, and the signs of toxicity, like ringing in my ears, are now getting better too.

Kelly B, White Rock, BC

Thanks Andy!

I'm more energized and alive than I was even before the beginning of the Addisons.

Aside from the minor, pretty-much negligible flare-up now and again, my eyes, hands and joints aren't inflammed and swollen anymore either.

I don't know how, since I didn't even tell you about it , but I can't remember when I last noticed the warts on the bottom of my feet.

They've become that much less painful and inflammed.

Carlos D., Las Vegas, Nevada

The deep abscess and pustules don't bother me anymore - thank you!

My eyes and sleep are also better since the homeopathic remedy.

Katherine, Delta (Tsawwassen), BC

My daughter had about 6 ear infections in under a year, and was constantly uncomfortable and crying.

Your homeopathic remedy flipped some kind of switch inside her - she was happier almost instantly!

She only had one more infection over the next six months, and hasn't had another in the past year.

Your treatment also really gentle - we'll definitely be coming back to you for our youngest soon!

Brooke T, Delta (Tsawwassen), BC
