Naturopathic Doctors are trained in clinical nutrition – which is an understanding of how foods (and the nutrients that they contain) affect health and disease. This understanding is aimed at ensuring a healthy energy balance, as well as providing adequate intake of protein, fat, carbs, vitamins and minerals.

At AWH our clinicians have expanded their view of nutrition to incorporate not only a general understanding of how food interacts with the body, but of what foods will work best with you! We customize nutrition plans based on the results of Core Labs, Functional Testing and personal genetics. This provides superior results for autoimmune disease, thyroid health, hormone balance, preconception, pregnancy, weight loss, digestion, proactive health goals and much more. 

No, not everyone who walks into our office will go on a gluten-free, dairy-free, air diet! But if you do need that then at least you will understand why!

Outside of Work

When I’m not waist-deep in work, I can be found playing in the outdoors with my friends or nestled into a big, comfy reading chair with a book and a mug of matcha in hand.

Dee Dorrance, CNP

Certified Nutritional Practitioner

Dee is a Certified Nutritional Practitioner (CNP) based out of her hometown Toronto. She graduated with first class honours from The Institute of Holistic Nutrition, one of North America’s premier educational institutes in the natural healing arts. Dee’s mission at AWH is a simple one: to help you feel healthy & empowered about food so that you can thrive in your home life and career. See below for more information on Dee’s story and experience.

As someone who has struggled with digestive and hormonal imbalance, from IBS to PCOS, I know what it’s like to feel frustrated and hopeless when it comes to food! It wasn’t until I found Holistic Nutrition that everything started to change. My constant bloat and discomfort started to go away, my period came back and my energy returned in full force. My healing experience with nutrition and other holistic health modalities is what led me to pursue a career as a nutritionist. Using the healing powers of natural food and medicine, I am passionate about helping you achieve your health goals without unnecessary restriction, guilt or shame. 

I believe that food plays an integral role in the management of any health condition. My areas of specialty include, but are not limited to, digestive and hormonal health. Conditions I love to help manage are PCOS, endometriosis, fertility & prenatal care, hypothyroidism, fatigue, general digestive disturbances and more.
