Health Professionals in Ontario
"As a Naturopathic Doctor and a Functional Medicine Practitioner, I spend time with my patients, listening to their histories and looking at the potential triggers, such as genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex chronic disease. The details of your health history are compared to a puzzle that creates an interconnecting web. Everything is a clue to your present state of health. With each patient, I seek to find a common link and solve problems from the root cause of pathology - not simply treating your symptoms."
