A little bit about me:
I went to university on a full scholarship & was consistently on the Dean’s Honour Roll. I’ve been in practice as a naturopathic doctor for 14 years & was twice voted “Best Naturopath in Toronto” by the Readers of NOW magazine.
I’m a member in good standing of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, Naturopathic Doctors of Ontario & I’m licensed/registered with the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy – Naturopathy.
Overcoming my own health issues has inspired an interest in women’s health issues, particularly fibroids, endometriosis, PCOS, PMS & infertility although I’m well versed in many other conditions including allergies, irritable bowel syndrome, ulcerative colitis, Crohn’s, eczema, psoriasis, headaches/migraines, menopause, diabetes, hypertension, arthritis, hypothyroidism, weight loss & more. My treatments are designed to address the root cause of a health problem, rather than just mask the symptoms. I use a diverse treatment approach that may incorporate acupuncture, herbal medicine, homeopathy, nutrition, diet, vitamins, supplements & other natural remedies.
I’m the proud, single mom of a wonderful 7 year old boy named Brandon & a 1 year old dog named Cookie. When I’m not busy chasing after them, I’m at the gym, the library, taking ballroom dancing lessons or on the tennis courts.
Note: Because I am a single doggy parent, Cookie comes to work with me. She is friendly, most patients enjoy her company, she is restrained on her leash for those that don’t want contact with her & she usually just sleeps through patient appointments. If you would not enjoy her company, I can either remove her from the room during your appointment or you can consider scheduling with my colleague, Dr Clark.
The Paleo eating for wellness plan resonates with me for a number of reasons:
- Insulin is connected to many of the health conditions I treat, reducing the need for insulin production makes sense to me.
- Many of the patients I see have mild food allergies(food sensitivities) to the foods that are not consistent with Paleo eating such as dairy, gluten, and legumes.
- Paleo eating is a return to what makes sense for us to eat. If we were living in the wild reliant on what we had to hunt or gather for ourselves, this is what we would eat. It makes sense that this is what our bodies’ evolved over hundreds of thousands of years to tolerate and recognize as food and fuel.
