Hi! I’m Dr Cyndi Gilbert ND, a naturopathic doctor and an author. I’d be honoured to work with you to restore, establish and maintain your health. My philosophy of care is based on acknowledging and addressing the parts of health too frequently neglected in medicine: the mental/emotional pieces, the sociocultural aspects, the environment around you, and the patterns and relationships that emerge between all of these.
Through a patient-centered and collaborative approach, I focus on assisting you to identify the source of your concerns, remove obstacles to your health, and support your body’s innate ability to heal using individualized natural therapies. I am committed to providing personalized, high quality healthcare and guidance for the long term wellness of you and your family.
Overall, I strive towards a harm reduction and anti-oppression model of care that affirms you, and respects your first-hand knowledge of your own health. I have a special interest in sexual and reproductive health, mental wellness, trauma, and addiction. I also have additional training in LGBTQ health. My practice is both eclectic and inclusive of diverse peoples, genders, families, and relationships.
*My office sits on the territory of the Huron-Wendat and Petun First Nations, the Seneca, and most recently, the Mississaugas of the Credit River. The territory was the subject of the Dish With One Spoon Wampum Belt Covenant, an agreement between the Iroquois Confederacy and Confederacy of the Ojibwe and allied nations to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
Today, the meeting place of Tkaronto (Toronto) is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and I am grateful to have the opportunity to work in this community, on this land.
