About Naturopathic Doctors
All licensed naturopathic doctors (NDs) in Ontario complete a minimum of three years of university-level training, including pre-medical courses before attending an accredited naturopathic medical school for a four-year program of in-residence, hands-on medical education consisting of a minimum of 4,100 hours of class and clinical training. During naturopathic medical education, students are trained in the biomedical sciences as well as the latest advances in complementary medicine and natural approaches to therapy as well as disease prevention and clinical techniques.
In Ontario all practicing naturopathic doctors are registered with and regulated by the CONO (College of Naturopaths of Ontario) which ensures that NDs have the knowledge, skill and judgment to carry out their role. As regulated professionals, NDs are accountable for their conduct and practice.
Hi there, my name is Nick. I spent a good chunk of my younger years suffering from fatigue and brain fog, which really held me back from living my life. Eventually it came to a head where I felt I could barely get out of bed. The conventional medical system of course had no answers for me, and after realizing this I took it upon myself to figure it out.
My recovery was a many years struggle during which time I spent hundreds if not thousands of hours in the library and online researching, and many thousands of dollars buying supplements and books concerning all the things I had been reading about. After many ups and downs, my obsession with regaining my health finally paid off, and I now enjoy feeling good and living life the way I choose.
My personal experience with chronic illness has given me insights and perspectives that I could not have gained otherwise, and also inspired me to help others that feel stuck or left behind in the conventional medical system. This is why I became a naturopathic doctor and why I would love to help you overcome whatever health problems are holding you back.
What I do
Many conditions; from digestive issues, autoimmune disease, generalized fatigue and many more can prevent us from doing the things we want to do.These conditions that we call chronic disease can often be traced back to underlying imbalances and dysfunctions within the body. It is through treating this altered physiology that lies below the surface that long term health improvements can be achieved. Typically the body is either lacking something(s) it needs to function, or there is something impeding its proper function.
My approach is to first identify which factors are responsible for the imbalances/dysfunctions in the body, which is accomplished using comprehensive health history as well as advanced diagnostic laboratory testing. Then, once the aggravating factors are brought to light, an individualized program utilizing tools such as targeted natural agents (ie botanicals and nutraceuticals), therapeutic diet, and lifestyle counseling is implemented. The end goal for all treatments with all patients is lifelong optimal health.
I look forward to working with you
