About Green Apple

The practitioners at Green Apple Health Care treat the core cause of health problems, rather than the symptoms. Our programs are customized to each individual patient. We use a simple, natural and preventative approach to help patients achieve lifelong well-being.

Dr. Michael Nowazek founded Green Apple Health Care Ltd. in 2008.  In doing so, he brought together a team of different Practitioners who can focus on your health conditions using integrated treatments in order to offer a complete health care experience to patients.

Dr. Nowazek’s aim was to bring together like-minded health care professionals with a shared goal of providing natural and holistic health care options and to give patients the optimal therapies for their core health problem in an integrated approach.

Personalized One-on-One Care

Each of our Practitioners takes time to understand a patient, their medical history, lifestyle and needs before creating a treatment program with them. We then create a customized treatment plan that is focused on the core cause of the health problem while working with the patient, other practitioners and doctors as needed for the patient.  We go above and beyond to ensure that each patient who walks through our doors leaves with a concrete plan to achieve their health goals.

For many of our patients, visiting our clinic represents their first foray into the world of Naturopathic Medicine.

Our office provides a familiar healthcare experience in a clean, professional setting. Our facilities include a comfortable waiting room (though our patients rarely have to wait) and dedicated spaces for both consultation and treatment. Everything about the design and function of our clinic focuses on quality patient care.

We are a team of experienced health care professionals ready to help you and your family achieve lifelong well-being.

What We Do

Treat the Cause

Green Apple Health Care treats the core cause of health problems, rather than the symptoms. Our programs are customized to each individual patient. We use a simple, natural and preventative approach to help patients achieve life-long well-being.

Create Custom Health Plans

We do more than simply offer patients a menu of therapy options to order from à la carte.

When a patient comes to Green Apple, we sit down and discuss with them where their health is currently and where they want it to be. Then we come up with a step-by-step plan to get it there.

In creating each patients’ plan we take into account individual lifestyle, stress levels, work schedule, kids, activities and any other aspect of the patients’ situation that is unique and important to them. We then design a treatment plan that will fit into each patients’ schedule and life, without making it too difficult or costly.

Prioritize Important Steps

We also prioritize the steps and tailor them based on the patients’ circumstances.

When treating the causes of health problems we have to address the causes in stages, as it is often impossible to attempt to cure everything at once. Tackling health challenges in stages keeps the healing process continuously moving forward.

What We Don't Do

 Trust Diagnosis to Guess Work

Diagnosing the cause of a health problem is the ultimate combination of an art and science. Understanding biology and chemistry and having experience to know how those interact in the body allows us to narrow down the causes and come closer to a diagnosis. Testing is used to confirm a diagnosis, not the first step in developing it.

There are a variety of tests available and we have access to many tests not normally performed by other practitioners. We go over the pros and cons of the tests that could be considered as well as what the lab results will provide to us.  Often testing not only helps in confirming a diagnosis, but also allows us to streamline treatment and make treatment faster and more effective.  Not every patient will need testing, and when tests are used, they are very useful for diagnosis and treatment.

Take Patients Off of All Medications

Dr. Nowazek in lab

Our clinic is not anti-drug. Patients do not have to pledge to eradicate medications from their healthcare regime when they come to our practice. If a patient comes to us and is currently on medications that are working for them, that’s fine. We can come up with a treatment program that will work in tandem with those medications. If the patient wishes to be medication-free, we can design a health plan to achieve that goal as well, while working with their MD to come off medications properly.

Prescribe Complicated Diets

We don’t put our patients on complicated diets or shopping bags of supplements. Instead we work with the patient to make a plan that they can do. The best thought-out treatment in the world won’t do any good if the patient can’t maintain it on a daily basis.

Confuse Patients with Jargon

Whatever the patients’ diagnosis and treatment plan, we explain things in simple, everyday terms that anyone can understand. We make a point of not confusing our patients with insider jargon.
