 We would like to thank you for choosing the Natural Care Clinic as the best Naturopathic Clinic in Burlington again this year. Dr Sonya Doherty and I were honoured to be awarded a tie in the diamond category of Best Naturopathic Doctor in Burlington.

The last few months have been busy as Dr Sonya, my multi-talented sister, is hosting the 3rd Annual Autism, PDD, AD/HD, OCD and Tourette's Conference on Saturday April 21st featuring no fewer than 5 experts.
Dr Sonya specializes in neurodevelopment and has extensive experience in digestive health as a biomedical treatment. Her featured article this month is all about the importance of good bacteria in your gut. This article will contain strategies to improve a wide range of conditions such as developmental issues, allergies and digestion disorders.

As a Naturopathic Doctor, I am fascinated by the gastrointestinal tract.  When our intestines are spread out, they measure 3000 square feet in surface area.  This surface area is responsible for regulating immune function and inflammation.  In terms of children's health, immune function and inflammation are key factors in determining if a child will have allergies, asthma and eczema 

 Inflammation is the root of many chronic diseases so it is crucial that we have a good understanding of how the gut manages inflammation to protect the body.
