As a Naturopathic physician, Dr. Heather believes in treating the whole person and looking at finding the root cause of a patient’s symptoms. This involves supporting the body through nutrition, detoxification, IV therapy, lifestyle modifications, acupuncture, physical exams, supplementation and pharmaceutical prescriptions (when needed). She has completed her Level 1 & 2 modules of training in Advanced Regenerative Injection Therapies (prolotherapy, PRP, neural prolo, neural therapy, trigger point injections and medical aesthetic) to supplement her Naturopathic focus in Pain Management and Injury Recovery.
