Prior to starting AWH Dr. Sarah maintained a busy, wait list only women’s health practice in Toronto, Ontario. She was sought out for her evidence-based treatments of weight loss resistance, PCOS, acne, endometriosis and other complex issues. Born and raised in Belleville Ontario, Dr. Sarah saw a need for comprehensive women’s healthcare in the area and decided to move closer to home to fill that need and raise her family. See below for more information on her story and experience.
I am passionate about helping women feel their best because I spent many years with brain fog, fatigue, constant digestive upset, an unpredictable period and unexplainable weight gain. These ‘undiagnosable’ symptoms prevented me putting myself out there, contributing all of the greatness I had to give, and from reaching my full potential. For me, it was visiting my first Naturopathic Doctor that changed my life, and I am on a mission to change the lives of other women! I know I am not alone in experiencing these symptoms, far from it actually. And I believe that no one should have to experience the frustration, and isolation, that comes along with not feeling at your best!
The Official Stuff
Prior to my four years at CCNM I attended the University of Guelph and obtained a degree in Human Kinetics and Nutrition and Nutraceutical Sciences. During my time at the University of Guelph had the opportunity to work in a research lab which ignited my passion for research. This has continued into positions with Ferring Natural Health and Wellesley therapeutics where I actively research digestive health from a number of perspectives. My passion for research has led me to develop an advanced understanding of the digestive system, immune system, metabolism and hormonal health. This understanding is applied to both my personal health and patient’s treatments and has gotten me to the state of health I currently experience.
My personal experiences have also motivated me to develop an appreciation for and understanding of modified diets, metabolic & hormonal chaos and most of all self love.
I am absolutely passionate about educating and am regularly presenting to professionals and members of the public on a variety of topics. I am on a mission to help all women get healthy, naturally, with Naturopathic Medicine. I do this not only by seeing patients but I am also a mentor to Naturopathic Doctors across North America with my professional program, Naturopathic Clinical Mentorship.
