Daisey is a graduate of the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine, and is a licensed Naturopathic Doctor through the College of Naturopathic Physicians of British Columbia, CNPBC, http://www.cnpbc.bc.ca.
As a Master of Science student at Mount Allison University in New Brunswick Daisey developed a strong appreciation and respect for research. But felt that there must be many unknown exceptions to the rules of science. Her graduate research was in the field of epigenetics; environment strongly affects the expression of genes. Lifestyle, including what we eat, what we do, what we think, even what we believe can alter which genes are expressed. Knowing the importance of lifestyle on our genetic expression and thereby our future health led Daisey to Naturopathic Medicine.
At CCNM, in Toronto, she completed the 4 year ND program, including studies in core medical sciences and varied healing modalities. The last year of the program consisted of a clinical internship at the Robert Schad Naturopathic Clinic and 2 satellite clinics; Queen West Community Clinic, http://www.ctchc.com; and Anishnawbe Health Toronto, http://www.aht.ca.
Part of Daisey’s enthusiasm for health, includes the health of our planet. And, as Doctor as Teacher, she strives to live by example. She’s committed to living sustainably in partnership with nature. This includes commuting by bicycle or public transportation, and being a mindful consumer. She loves spending time in nature; whether hiking, camping, cycling, foraging, or hugging trees.
Through the use of an integrated holistic approach, involving a comprehensive clinical intake, including a focused physical exam and required lab investigations, an appropriate treatment plan can be developed that may include any or all of the following modalities; traditional chinese medicine (including acupuncture), hydrotherapy, nutrition, botanical medicine and homeopathy.
