I recently graduated with my Doctorate of Naturopathy from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine in Toronto. During the past year I completed a clinical internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic and Brampton Naturopathic Teaching Clinic where I diagnosed and treated over 300 patients with a wide variety of concerns, under the supervision of a licensed Naturopathic Doctor. I was also on the Fertility and Reproductive Health focus shift where I provided support for individuals and couples trying to conceive. I am completing licensing exams (NPLEX) and BC Board exams in August 2019, and upon successful completion will become a licensed Naturopathic Doctor in British Columbia.
Naturopathic medicine is a system of primary health care that addresses the root cause of disease rather than eliminating or suppressing symptoms. Through the use of many possible modalities, Naturopathic Doctors are able to provide individualistic treatment for a wide range of ailments by stimulating or supporting healing processes and promoting or restoring the overall health of the individual. With a focus on holistic, preventative and educational medicine patients are able to regain control of their health and better achieve their wellness goals.
