When your body is sick or injured, doctors at the hospital provide treatment to help your organs and systems work well together. These doctors have been trained all over Canada and even around the world!

Did you know that there are many different types of doctors and medicines? Health care varies from place to place and across cultures. For example, Indigenous approaches consider not only the body, but also the mind, spirit, and emotions. They use many plant-based remedies, such as the four sacred medicines. Some of these remedies form the basis of drugs you can buy at the local pharmacy.

Many medical practices that started in other parts of the world have become popular among Western culture. For example, over 1.5 million people in Canada practice yoga, a traditional Sanskrit approach to wellbeing.
