Dr. Chelsea Grant
Dr. Chelsea Grant, ND grew up in Cornwall and graduated from St. Joseph’s Secondary School, where she received a Bilingual Diploma, became a St. Joseph’s Club member, and was awarded The Student Council Award, French Award and Religion Award. She then moved to Guelph to obtain an honours degree in Molecular Biology and Genetics at the University of Guelph. Working hard but focused on finding balance, Dr. Grant spent her free time in the pool swimming laps or doing aquafit, going to dance classes and playing intramural volleyball. Following her graduation, Dr. Grant moved to Toronto to spend the next four years studying at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine. During her clinical year, Dr. Grant had the opportunity of providing naturopathic care to patients at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic as well as to persons out in the community at the Lakeshore Area Multi-service Project Community Health Centre and the Sherbourne Health Centre. The later involved specialized treatment for patients who are HIV+. Passionate about the various tools available to Naturopathic Doctors, Dr. Grant travelled to India to receive additional training in homeopathy.
She also participated in a medical brigade through Natural Doctors International (ndimed.org) and travelled to the Island of Ometepe in Nicaragua.
It was her time spent training and working as a lifeguard and instructor in the Cornwall area that lead Dr. Grant to choose a career in the medical field. She had wonderful opportunities to shadow established health care professionals (NDs, MDs, DCs, and Midwives) that helped shape her view of medicine. She is eager to work in conjunction with other medical practitioners to provide a team-based approach to medical care. She currently has a family practice and is accepting new patients. Her special interests include pain management, healthy aging, mental health and women’s health.
Dr. Grant is licensed and registered with the Board of Directors of Drugless Therapy – Naturopathy (BDDT-N) and is a member of the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND). Like the naturopathic philosophy of “Doctor as Teacher” Dr. Grant is available for talks and classes on a variety of topics in preventative medicine.
