Doctor of Naturopathy

A registered Naturopathic Doctor and health practitioner, Dr. Sara is licensed to practice naturopathic medicine in the province of Ontario and is a member in good standing with the College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO). She is a member of the Ontario Association of Naturopathic Doctors (OAND) and the Canadian Association of Naturopathic Doctors (CAND). Dr. Sara is also an active committee member of the Naturopathic Legacy Project, advocating for the expansion of naturopathic medicine across all provinces in Canada.


Dr. Sara graduated from the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto, Ontario.

Environmental Medicine

After graduating from CCNM, Dr. Sara gained international naturopathic medical experience working at Central and Discovery Bay districts in Hong Kong. Her clinical exposure to various health conditions from asthma, frequent colds, bronchitis, sinusitis, allergies, parasites and chronic infections and the interplay of environmental exposures, shaped her interest toward the field of environmental toxicity. Dr. Sara considers the environmental impact on human health. From contaminated water, heavy metals, molds and air pollutants, she understands that health extends beyond an eco-conscious view of our individual footprints to that of our communities and world at large.

I dedicate myself to the service of humanity as a practitioner of the art and science of naturopathic medicine.


By precept, education and example, I will assist and encourage others to strengthen their health, reduce risks for disease, and preserve the health of our planet for ourselves and future generations. 


I will continually endeavour to improve my abilities. I will conduct my life and practice of naturopathic medicine with integrity and freedom from prejudice. 


I will keep confident what should not be divulged.


I will honour the principles of naturopathic medicine:


First, to do no harm.
To co-operate with the healing powers of nature.
To address the fundamental causes of disease.
To heal the whole person through individualized treatment.
To teach the principles of healthy living and preventive medicine.


With my whole heart, before these witnesses, as a Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine, I pledge to remain true to this oath.
