I'm a Naturopathic Doctor living, writing, and working in St. John's, NL, Canada. My goal is to help people just like you learn to use diet, lifestyle, and natural medicines at home so that you can get relief from their symptoms and create a healthier, happier body.
Health Clinic: I run a general practice and see all kinds of patients. I'm particularly good at treating hormonal, reproductive, and digestive concerns.
Online Courses: In an effort to bring diet, lifestyle, and natural medicine strategies to everyone I can, in early 2016 I started periodically running these fun online wellness programs! I hope to help as many people as I can, even if they can't visit my St. John's clinic.
