Is a naturopath right for me?

Naturopathic medicine can be beneficial in treating many kinds of skin problems.

Underlying conditions, such as nutrient deficiencies, allergies and food sensitivities, can contribute to a wide range of skin disorders, including acne, rosacea, eczema and psoriasis.

The holistic approach of naturopathic medicine, which focuses on the root causes of illness, can result in improvement in these conditions when other approaches have not.

I have a Bachelor’s degree in nursing from the University of British Columbia.  I have several years of work experience in nursing covering such specialty areas as gastroenterology, plastic surgery, gerontology, ophthalmology, sexual health and family planning.

I am a member in good standing with the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors, and I am licensed by the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO).

As a naturopathic doctor, I work with many treatment modalities, some of which you will find described on this site, but have a special interest in clinical nutrition and orthomolecular medicine.
