I became inspired to become a Naturopathic Doctor after witnessing the burden that chronic disease had on many family members, feeling helpless, wanting to assist, but not knowing how. I work as a health detective to identify the root causes of your health concerns and whatever obstacles are preventing you from reaching your goals. I empower, educate and motivate my patients to reaching their optimal health. In addition to supporting general wellness and seasonal care (eg. cold & flu, allergies, seasonal affective disorder), I focus on mood regulation (eg. anxiety, depression, stress management), digestive concerns and hormonal imbalances.
Naturopathic medicine blends modern science with traditional and natural forms of medicine. The naturopathic philosophy is to stimulate the healing power of the body and prevent and treat the underlying cause of disease. Symptoms of disease are seen as warning signals of improper functioning of the body, an underlying imbalance, and unfavourable lifestyle habits. If you’re looking for natural solutions that get to the root of your problems, not just more medications that don’t really give you your health back, you’ve come to the right place.
