WHY WORK WITH ME?

 I integrate the power and science of nature with over a decade of experience working in the conventional health care system to bring you quality Naturopathic Care. 

ABOUT ME

Hi!

 

I'm Olivia, naturopathic doctor and cardiac nurse, and I have worked with hundreds of patients with heart disease. I know that many women are dying unnecessarily from heart disease and I believe women deserve better heart health care.

 

I am on a mission to remove heart disease as the top killer of women.  I empower women by educating them about their unique risk, and advocate for a paradigm shift in how women are treated when it comes to heart disease and prevention.

Throughout my years working in the conventional health care system, I have come to understand that sometimes the conventional health care approach, although invaluable, can sometimes leave patients feeling fragmented and frustrated. With an evidenced-based, person-centred approach, I utilize natural healing therapies to help my patients return to optimal health--in body, mind, and spirit. ​​

I love to travel and have had the privilege of traveling to rural First Nations communities and Peru where I helped to deliver primary health care, and to Nicaragua to provide Naturopathic medicine with Natural Doctor's International.​ I have also attended a week-long intensive training in Germany on the use of German complex homeopathics and basic German iridology with Pascoe Canada.

Perhaps you have risk factors for heart disease, been told you have to go on medications, or have a family member with heart disease or have been devastated by the loss of a loved one from a heart attack. I am so glad you have found me, because this does not have to be you! Together we can change your genetic destiny.

I look forward to working with you so you can live your life without the fear of heart disease.

"Health is like money, we never have a true idea of its value until we lose it"

INDIVIDUALIZED CARE

A comprehensive health history, physical exams, diagnostic and lab testing are all evaluated to determine a treatment plan that is right for YOU.
 

Nutrition and Supplements

Good nutrition is the foundation of good health. What you put in your body can either influence healing or be damaging to your body, contributing to chronic illness. We will discuss the fundamentals of health and I will teach you which foods you should be eating and which to avoid. In times of high stress or chronic disease, simply eating healthy may not be enough and you may require additional nutrients. Through a comprehensive dietary assessment I will determine an evidence-based supplementation program for you.​

Botanical Medicine

​Medicinal plants have been used around the world for thousands of years for their powerful healing and nutritional value. Plants can be used to treat a variety of conditions including but not limited to insomnia, stress, fatigue, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and skin conditions, and can be used in a variety of ways such as a tincture (an alcohol extraction), a tea (a water extraction), a salve, or an essential oil. It is important to remember that some herbal remedies have the potential to interact with prescription or over-the-counter medications, and that certain chemicals in plants may interfere with the absorption of certain nutrients. I will review your current medical therapies and implement botanical medicine in a safe way that is best for your concerns.

Chinese Medicine

The first recorded history of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) dates back over 2000 years, however, it is believed it has been practiced for over 5000 years. In TCM, health is viewed as a balance of vital energy (Qi energy) which pulses through meridians all over the body each associated with different organ systems. When this energy is out of balance it creates a variety of symptoms which, when viewed all together, identify which system(s) need to be addressed. Rather than looking at each symptom individually, TCM is a holistic approach that appreciates the interconnectedness of each organ system and looks to the presentation of symptoms to identify the underlying imbalance. To gain a deeper understanding of your pattern of symptoms a comprehensive TCM intake including tongue and pulse diagnosis is used. Rebalancing treatments include acupuncture, Chinese herbs, and specific dietary and lifestyle interventions.

Physical Medicine

​Physical medicine can be a powerful way to restore structural integrity to the musculoskeletal system as well as building the immune system and facilitating detoxification and healing. Treatments include skeletal adjustments, massage, hydrotherapy, and more. In addition, as part of your Naturopathic plan I can teach you treatments that you can do at home on your own. 

 

Lifestyle Counseling

How you live your life day-to-day can have a dramatic impact on your overall health and vitality and can interfere with the body's natural healing ability. There are many obstacles to healing—how you handle emotions and stress, lack of movement, relationships, your living or work environment, and how you nourish your body. Poor lifestyle practices can impede the effect of your naturopathic program. I will help you to identify obstacles in the way of reaching your full health potential and together we will strategize a plan to overcome them.


 

Homeopathy

Homeopathy works under the principle of “like cures like”.  A particular substance taken by an otherwise healthy person will produce a unique set of symptoms. When a person presents with those particular symptoms and is given that same substance in minute dose, it will stimulate the body’s natural ability to heal. "Simply put, the purpose of using a homeopathic medicine is to stimulate the body and mind to heal itself on all levels, and regain biological and psychological balance. It does this through the use of uniquely prepared remedies, prescribed to match the precise symptom complex expressed by a person who is ill." Asa Hershoff, ND
