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 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 shoulder is a lot better! Before I couldn’t even lift things with it - now I’m back gardening and skating regularly. 

My cold actually went away very quickly with the treatment, too – I felt better almost immediately.

My sinuses don’t hurt like they used to, and I don’t get the headaches any more either. Where I injured my head with the concussion doesn’t hurt anymore, and I don’t think I’m as accident prone as I was before either.

I’ve even lost weight over the last few months. 

I originally had a tendency to run around and try to do way too many things at once, and then only do things half or three quarters of the way. The remedy has helped me learn to gather myself a bit, to get an overview of what’s going on, so that I feel more structured to plan my food and my work.

With my work, I’ve been able to work long hours and then relax after since we began the treament.

Also, when I am at home and with the kids, I am capable of talking to them and doing other things at the same time.

Finally, the anxiety, high blood pressure and palpitations are also much better. I don’t even pay attention to the numbers anymore. I know what I feel, and since your treatment, I feel much better with all of this!

S.A., Richmond, 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

I was suicidally depressed, and had really bad sinus, head and joint pain when I came to see Andy. His homeopathic remedy and naturopathic treatment turned my life around within weeks and - more than 5 years later - I'm doing better than ever!

M.C., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC

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

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

Hannah is doing REALLY well - straighter then I have seen her in a while - NO spasms - and even her arm is better!!

She has been using ONLY homeopathy and Bowen to battle a crippling disease, Torsion Dystonia.

Her response has been baffling to neurologists and traditional doctors who are amazed and astounded at her ability to walk, run and carry on normally in life.

Andy's assessment and ability to relate to my teenage daughter were wonderful and her reaction to the remedies and treatment has been so positive.

Hannah Schell, Ottawa, Ontario

I had such angry red inflammed acne on my face and neck, it didn't matter how much foundation I put on, it would never look normal.

I also had low blood pressure and blood sugar problems that would make me weak, shaky, and nervous.

I had tried the normal drug route but that just made me feel worse and made my periods even more painful.

Andy's homeopathic remedy and neuroemotional therapy made me less anxious, jealous and irritable, almost overnight.

The Bowen technique also seemed to make things flow better, and my periods better.

The acne started to lessen after a couple of days and the flare-ups became less and less until they were not even noticeable.

The healing has been so gradual and complete that before Dr. Andy reminded me I forgot I used to have restless legs, anemia, or vomiting problems.

J.B., Sunshine Coast (Gibsons), BC

The TIAs and stroke had left me weak, debilitated, paralyzed and unable to take care of myself.

I had given up hope when I was referred to Dr. Andy, and honestly didn't believe his weird-looking homeopathic treatment would be of any use at all.

My wife had to convince me to give the homeopathy, neuroemotional technique and Bowen therapy a try.

I didn't notice anything at all at first, but my wife, children, and friends all told me I was speaking, moving and looking better.

I don' t know, maybe the changes happened too slowly to notice.

However, the difference is obvious even to me now.

My face, speech and movements are more symmetrical, and I am more independent and capable than I have been for a long time, even since before the stroke.

Tom E., Vancouver (West End / Downtown), BC

The trembling and shaking is not noticeable anymore, and the muscle weakness and tension is getting less.
It seems like it's gotten better every time I've seen you, so I have hope for it soon going away absolutely!
My eye sight is also stronger through the treatment, and I am not so forgetful or confused now.

Elle C., Vancouver (Kerrisdale), BC
