She has extra training in intravenous therapy including IV vitamin C for cancer and in bio-identical hormone prescribing such as topical progesterone, estrogen and thyroid hormone.
“Patients often ask me why I decided to become a naturopathic doctor. I have always been interested in medicine, but I thought the conventional route was the only way to go. After graduating from university I discovered naturopathic medicine which embraced all my beliefs of what medicine should be. Throughout the years, I gained a greater understanding of how incredible the human body is and how unfortunate it is that so many people are suffering daily in a state of ill health. I am thrilled to offer alternative medicine to the communities of S.D. & G using the most current scientific evidence in conventional medical and naturopathic therapies. I will help you remove the obstacles to cure and empower you to take charge of your health!”
