He is more than a doctor, he is a counselor and a guide.
Node Smith, ND is a naturopathic doctor and director of TEAL Holistic - Integral Health Solutions, which focuses on addressing obstacles to health and facilitating sustainable behavioral change. He utilizes comprehensive life assessment tools, including personality testing, as well as a unique and powerful counseling style.
Node is an expert in behavioral change and is an adept counselor and naturopathic doctor. He specializes in finding the underlying causes of disease in a person’s life, and helping them grow and heal in these areas.
One of Node’s gifts as a doctor is his ability to relate to his clients. Node is definitely not what you would expect as a doctor. He lives in rural Saskatchewan in a village of about 350 people, loves working on cars, and chopping wood at his brother-in-law’s property. Him and his wife Charity live in a 1907 heritage home, which is under perpetual renovation - Node does most of the work himself. He also has recently rekindled his love for writing and publishes fiction as well as poetry. He sees writing as one of the ways he can add beauty and inspiration into the world.

where we are
We are grateful to have a clinic location in the beautiful Qu’Appelle Valley on Treaty 4 land in Fort Qu’Appelle - inside the K2 Cross Training building.
Having our clinic inside the town’s only gym has been wonderful. The atmosphere of hard work, motivation, and positive attitude creates a very supportive environment for those trying to make changes in their life. It also gives people real examples of others who may have been where they are, but have been able to reclaim their health.
We do offer online appointments and sessions, but would love to see you in person at our physical location if you are able to make the trip.
We value health as the ultimate freedom one can strive for in this human life.
We also value five universal principles necessary to achieving this type of freedom:
"We all want FREEDOM from our suffering. And it is only through KIND and HONEST communication with ourselves that we may come to see how our health is in RELATIONSHIP with everything we do, say and think.
From this place of awareness and understanding we must COMMIT to ourselves and take ACTION to change."
The integral health model
Health is not simply a matter of the body’s physical condition. Health is not simply the absence of physical complaints or symptoms. Nor can health be simplified into a battery of blood tests that indicate either “good health” or “bad health.”
Health is the ability to experience life to the fullest extent possible. Health is the freedom to think, feel, move and relate to ourselves and others in ways that allow us to experience life in our most authentic way.
We use an integral quadrant model to help assess areas of life experience that may be influencing physical or mental health. This model is very easy to understand and helps our clients make connections to their health concerns that they never thought about before.
Using this model with our clients also ensures that we are addressing the true underlying causes of their conditions.
These quadrants are representative of areas of your life that have many factors and influences within them. Any one of these influences can drastically change your health - in ways you may not even recognize.
And there are specific tools, strategies and skills that can be used to address any and all of these things, and help you develop a life of health and happiness.
