Angelica is a licensed naturopathic doctor. She received her Naturopathic accreditation at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine and her honours degree in Kinesiology and Health Science at York University.
Angelica became passionate about naturopathic medicine when she observed it’s gentle yet effective therapies in a close family member. Once she had learned about its effectiveness, both alone and in conjunction with conventional medicine, she knew that naturopathic medicine was the art of health care she wanted to follow.
At the Head to Toe Health Centre, Angelica offers a safe and non-judgmental healing space in which she provides individualized naturopathic care to address the root cause of illness. She maintains a family based practice to help patients of all ages, from infants to elderly. Naturopathic treatments focus on diet and lifestyle to support long term health goals while using herbs, homeopathy, acupuncture and nutritional supplements as a temporary aid to help the body rediscover health and balance. These natural therapies are a valuable alternative to pharmaceutical treatments but can also be used safely and effectively alongside conventional medical treatments.
In addition to Angelica’s family practice, she is passionate about global health. During her clinical internship at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine she had the privilege of completing an externship with Natural Doctors International (NDI). With NDI, Angelica provided naturopathic care to members of a rural Nicaraguan community alongside other licensed naturopathic doctors and a local Nicaraguan psychologist. She will continue to be involved in global health and the endeavour to make naturopathic medicine sustainable and accessible worldwide.
